On the October 16th episode of AEW Dynamite FTR shockingly claimed the AAA Tag Team Championships pinning the Lucha Bros.
Earlier in October it had been announced that the Lucha Bros would defend their AAA Tag Team Titles against a ‘Masked tag team.’ The Lucha Bros immediately accepted the challenge, only knowing they would be taking on two of Andrade El Idolo’s “closest friends.”
Fast forward to October 16th and the ‘Las Super Ranas’ were unveiled by Andrade as the challengers.
The two masked, mystery wrestlers clad in green all in one suits, weren’t exactly the typical Lucha Libre team employing a slower, ground based style. However, the crowd didn’t have to wait long for the not-so-surprise reveal with Lucha Bros ripping off their opponents masks unveiling FTR.
The Lucha Brothers appeared to have the upper hand until Tully Blanchard, wearing the new FTR team colours of green and black ran to the ring. With the referee distracted, Dax smashed Rey Fenix with the title belt and a Brainbuster to pick up the shock win.

After the match Tony Schiavone tried to get a word with FTR and Tully Blanchard and FTR but were interrupted by MJF, who was paid up by Andrade.
