Additionally, a non-title match has been added to the show featuring the tag team champions. Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch will now face Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher since MSK’s Wes Lee is injured.
Here’s how WWE.com hypes up the match:
Confronting Nash Carter & Lee at the Capitol Wrestling Center, Lorcan & Burch called the injury a “blessing in disguise.” The Blackheart overheard the champions’ trash talk and his interest was piqued.
Though Ciampa & Thatcher couldn’t go all the way, they forged a memorable Dusty Classic run in their own right. Banding together after earning each other’s respect in an unforgettable battle in the Fight Pit, Ciampa & Thatcher complemented their no-nonsense styles with surprisingly strong chemistry.
