The Time Splitters are reuniting in NXT for the 2020 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
Last night on NXT, Mauro Ranallo announced that the surprise partner for Japanese sensation Kushida would be none other than his long-time New Japan Pro Wrestling tag team partner Alex Shelley. The team will square off against The Grizzled Young Veterans in the first round of the 2020 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament.
Kushida and Shelley were a huge part of New Japan’s Junior Tag Team division and were active between 2012 and 2016. Sheley is perhaps best known outside of Japan for his time in TNA/Impact Wrestling as one half of the excellent Motorcity Machine Guns tag team. He recently appeared as a guest coach at the WWE Performance Centre, leading to speculation he may end up signing a deal with the company.
