Best: The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Trophy

NXT’s understanding of what makes wrestling important to people (and what makes it work) doesn’t stop in the ring. When it was time to unveil the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic trophy, they did it the right way, by having Dusty’s family — his entire immediate family, including Eden Stiles — do the honors. Seeing Dustin as Dustin and Cody as Cody again put things into perspective, and let us know that the evening wasn’t a tribute with ulterior motives to set up some bullsh*t wrestling program, it was a sincere, actual tribute.
