Hat-tip to a great sign in the crowd for this week’s subtitle.
Previously on the Best and Worst of WWE NXT: Not much is happening! The Cruiserweight Classic guys are popping up with less character development than they got in the Cruiserweight Classic, Mandy Rose thinks “Eva Marie with blonde hair” is what a WWE Superstar looks like, and Samoa Joe weirdly received Shinsuke Nakamura’s medical records and sarcastically read them in public.

And now, the Best and Worst of WWE NXT for Sept. 28, 2016.
Best: The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Is Back
The most important development from this week’s show is the announcement that the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is returning, with first round matches starting next week and the finals happening at NXT TakeOver: Toronto, aka TakeOver: Eh-Rival. Bobby Roode shows up after the first match and asks Tye Dillinger of all people to be his tag team partner, saying the team would be “Perfectly Glorious.” I would’ve went with Ten-Roo, but this is probably better.
For like a month, I’ve been fantasy booking Roode and Austin Aries as a team for the Dusty Classic, because their NXT characters and even their major rivals so far are so similar. I figure the best case scenario would be James Storm showing up and Beer Money reuniting, but Storm decided not to sign with NXT in favor of being in those wrestling parts of Impact nobody watches between Matt Hardy’s sweded backyard wrestling comedy videos.
