WWE.com: Hideo Itami and Kota Ibushi To Compete In 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic

Two of Japan’s biggest stars are joining forces for the Dusty Classic.

Ibushi made waves in this past summer’s Cruiserweight Classic on his way to the tournament semifinals. Now The Golden Star will be looking to do one better in this tournament and leave TakeOver: Toronto with his name engraved on the tournament trophy. Itami is just getting back in the swing of things after spending more than a year on the shelf with a shoulder injury. He’ll be out to prove that he hasn’t lost a step.

Itami & Ibushi may be the hardest-hitting team in the field of 16, possessing an arsenal of kicks that leave their opponents battered and bruised in an instant. That gives them a distinct advantage over the rest of the teams in the Classic. This duo may be able to carve an easy path to the finals for themselves, but a painful one for their opponents.
