In a thrilling turn of events on "WWE NXT," the stage is now set for the grand finale of the 2024 Men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, captivating wrestling fans worldwide. The semi-finals brought intense competition and high-flying drama, particularly in the match that determined the last contenders for the coveted championship.

The semi-final showdown featured the dynamic duo of Joaquin Wilde and Cruz Del Toro from the Latino World Order, clashing with the formidable team of former "WWE NXT" Champion Carmelo Hayes and his partner Trick Williams.

This high-stakes match was more than just a battle for supremacy; it was a quest for glory on the grand stage of "WWE NXT."

Finals Showdown Secured

As the match reached its climax, tension filled the arena. Wilde, with high hopes and the crowd's anticipation fueling his ascent, took to the top rope, only to find his ambitious move countered by Hayes' devastating First 48 (codebreaker).

The momentum swiftly shifted as Hayes tagged in Williams, who, seizing the moment, executed a precise clothesline that sent Del Toro tumbling out of the ring. With the path cleared, Williams landed a spectacular jumping knee on Wilde, clinching the victory and securing their place in the finals.

Hayes and Williams' triumph sets the stage for an electrifying final showdown against the unexpected yet formidable team of Bron Breakker and Baron Corbin. This final battle, scheduled for "NXT" Vengeance Day on February 4, promises to be a highlight of the event.

Notably, for Trick Williams, the night will be doubly significant as he is also slated to challenge Ilja Dragunov for the "NXT" Championship, adding an extra layer of anticipation to the event. Adding to the excitement, "NXT" Vengeance Day will feature other must-see matchups, including Dragon Lee's bid to recapture the "NXT" North American Championship from Oba Femi, and Roxanne Perez's quest to reclaim the "NXT" Women's Championship from the reigning champion, Lyra Valkyria.

With such a stacked card, "NXT" Vengeance Day is shaping up to be an unforgettable event in the world of professional wrestling.
