The first two teams have advanced to the next round of the Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
On the February 22 episode of WWE NXT 2.0, two bouts kicked off the quarterfinals of the tournament. First, Io Shirai and Kay Lee Ray easily defeated Lash Legend and Amari Miller. Shirai hit her patented moonsault to secure the victory for the duo.

Later in the show, Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter advanced to the next round by defeating Ivy Nile and her partner, Tatum Paxley. After Paxley took a definitive 450 pinfall, Nile was aiming to make an example of Paxley, but Roderick Strong calmed his Diamond Mine stablemate down.
