It worked before. The Double Or Nothing card was one of the better in recent wrestling history. Everyone was working as hard as they could to tear the house down and there wasn’t a bad match on the card. Some of the matches were better than others though and that made for a heck of a night of wrestling. Less than a month later though, a rematch has taken place and something has changed.
On Sunday at AAA’s Verano de Escalando, the Lucha Bros defeated the Young Bucks to regain the AAA Tag Team Titles. The Bucks had defeated the Bros for the titles earlier this year and successfully defended them in a rematch at Double Or Nothing. Both teams are signed to exclusive contracts with AEW, though the deal only applies to appearances in the United States.
They did it in style. Check out how the Lucha Bros got the titles back:
Opinion: This isn’t the biggest surprise in the world and there’s nothing wrong with that. Considering their first match took place after the Lucha Bros had already wrestled once that night, it makes more sense to have this basically even the series. You could do another match if necessary and that would be quite good as well. The teams have chemistry together and hopefully we get to see them together again one day.
Which of these teams is better? Who will be the first AEW Tag Team Champions? Let us know in the comments below.
