As noted on Wednesday, Kota Ibushi is out of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic after suffering a neck injury last week at a live event. WWE made it official on Thursday and a replacement has been announced. William Regal announced that Kota Ibushi's new partner will be WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJ Perkins.
Perkins defeated Ibushi in the semi-finals of the Cruiserweight Classic. The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic will conclude at the NXT Takeover event in Tornoto during Survivor Series weekend on 11/19. The finals will air live on the WWE Network.
