Tonight’s episode of Dynamite featured a main event match that is about as high-stakes as things can get – FTR’s Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler challenging The Gunns for the AEW Tag Team Championships in a career vs. title match.
When the dust settled, Harwood and Wheeler rode high as the new AEW Tag Team Champions, defeating The Gunns with tandem victory rolls to earn the gold. They will continue their path in All Elite Wrestling for the foreseeable future as the reigning Tag Team Champs.
Several twists and turns near the match’s finish kept interest alive, as fans watched along. The referee, Paul Turner, was very lenient with the rules because of the significance of the match. But when The Gunns tried to use the Tag Title belts for an advantage, it wasn’t enough to put away the beloved tag team of FTR. Multiple times, The Gunns attempted to get themselves blatantly disqualified so that they would retain the titles by stipulation, and FTR would be forced out of the company.
