As noted, WWE announced today that Austin Aries and a mystery partner have been added to the 16 team WWE NXT Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic that kicks off this week and ends at Takeover: Toronto during Survivor Series weekend.

PWInsider reports that former ROH World Champion Roderick Strong is expected to be Aries's partner in the tournament. Aries and Strong have a long history together, as they were both part of the Generation Next faction in ROH, and together they held the ROH World Tag Team Championship.

Strong left ROH this past June and was expected to start with WWE.
