The Young Bucks Earn AEW World Tag Team Title Shot

The Young Bucks

The Young Bucks have earned a shot at the AEW World Tag Team Titles with victory in the Casino Tag Team Royale.

The match started with a surprise as Darius Martin returned to action for the first time in over a year to link back up with his brother Dante as Top Flight.

Teams continued to enter at 90-second intervals, with The Acclaimed using their entrance to insult pretty much everyone in the ring and throw shade at former WWE Superstar Glen Jacobs, also known as Kane. However, as teams came and went, FTR and Top Flight stood strong.

The final three teams remaining in the match were the Young Bucks, FTR and the returning Top Flight. After the three teams gathered themselves, Dante Martin and Cash Wheeler eliminated each other, before reDRagon came to ringside, distracting Dax Harwood in the process resulting in his elimination, this left Darius Martin alone with the Young Bucks.

Martin managed to eliminate Nick Jackson, coming within inches of quickly dispatching bother Matt, but he survived. After a brawl on the ring apron, Matt delivered a thunderous low blow before waving goodbye to Martin as he delivered a superkick to win the match.

On the February 23rd episode of Dynamite a huge tag team battle opened the show, with the winners heading to Revolution and a shot at the Tag Team Champions.

The final four men remaining were John Silver, Kyle O’Reilly, Matt Jackson and Dax from FTR, although Dax was taken out while wrestling on the apron by a returning Bobby Fish.

The end of the match came with Kyle O’Reilly and Matt Jackson seeming to be on the same page against John Silver. However, it was O’Reilly who outsmarted Jackson, after convincing the Young Bucks star to eliminate Silver, he followed up by throwing Jackson out to earn the win.
