Ever since NXT announced the first-ever women's version of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, Bayley has been incessantly asking to be apart of the tournament on social media.

Does this mean Bayley will be competing in the tournament? Only time will tell, but she does seem obsessed with having NXT commentator Beth Phoenix as her tag team partner.

The first matches of the tournament will take place on tonight's episode, featuring Toni Storm & Mercedes Martinez vs. Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter. WWE also announced earlier in the day that three more independent wrestlers have been signed and will all compete in the tournament — Zoey Stark (Lacey Ryan), Gigi Dolin (Priscilla Kelly) and Cora Jade (Elayna Black).
