The Wolfdogs (Bron Breakker & Baron Corbin) defeated Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams to win the 2024 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament at Sunday night’s WWE NXT: Vengeance Day 2024 pay-per-view event.
In a post-match interview, Corbin and Breakker addressed their landmark victory.
Corbin said, “I mean, I feel good. Are you okay? Look at this, this man is a wrecking ball, freight train, running people over, putting them down. Now listen, months ago, when I asked him to be my partner, I was in a little rough spot. I needed a partner. I needed a partner I knew could just cause mayhem and be absolute destruction out there. That’s what he is. Nothing can stop this man. He cut ‘Melo in half tonight. We got our hands raised. We’re the Dusty Cup Champions.
Listen, last night, we went out boot-shopping. We bought thousand-dollar boots because my man The Dream, who has sat with me and given me hours and hours and hours of knowledge, his boots are sitting on this. This trophy means more to me than you could ever know because The Dream was an idol to people like us. I got to work with him every day. We bought boots in his honor. Now, we have the most important boots in the world on a trophy with our names on it, and it’s going to my house right inside the whiskey closet. It’s a beautiful, big whiskey closet.”
Breakker didn’t seem happy with the idea of storing the trophy in Corbin’s house.
A Dusty Classic celebration is scheduled for this week’s episode of WWE NXT.
