As some of you may already know, there is a tag team tournament going on right now in NXT in honor of Dusty Rhodes, who passed away earlier this year. To make the finals even more special, WWE has made the decision to have Cody Rhodes and Goldust be the ones to present the trophy to the winning team. They will more than likely also give a speech about their father that night as well.

It is supposed to start in two weeks and might be exclusive to NXT.
