AEW recently announced on the third episode of their YouTube series, “Road To”, the brackets of their upcoming tournament that will crown the first ever AEW Tag Team Champions.
Young Bucks vs. Private Party (Oct. 9)
This will be the first match of the tournament. Private Party so far have been phenomenal in the few matches they’ve been involved in under the AEW banner. If PP defeats The Young Bucks, it would be the biggest win of their careers and would help establish them as a top contender of this division.
The Young Bucks, after an absolutely crazy ladder match against The Lucha Brothers, have mentioned they are “injured” after that crazy match and they will need time to recuperate. This important factor that could determine the winner of this match.
Lucha Brothers vs. Jurassic Express (Oct 16)
The Lucha Brothers have been heavily featured in the current shows AEW has produced, but they also have a heavy schedule outside of AEW so this could be an important thing to consider.
The Jurassic Express are one of the most over acts AEW has on their roster, but they are missing a big win to establish them. This win could be the beginning of big things for them in AEW.
Best Friends vs. SCU (Oct 16)
This will be an interesting match since both of these teams have experience and are very talented. Best Friends doesn’t need a win right now, they already faced The Dark Order on All Out.
The likely winner of this bracket will be SCU and face The Dark Order to help them get over with fans.
Who could be come the first ever AEW Tag Team Champions?
This could be anyone’s tournament because of how talented each team is, but the favorites to win are The Dark Order and Jurassic Express.
Jurassic Express is one of AEW’s hottest acts and them winning the belts would be good for them. It would help keep their act hot. The Dark Order would be an interesting idea as Tag Champions too, and having a feud with a babyface team could give them a solid chance to be champions.
The Lucha Brothers and Young Bucks don’t need the belts right now, and them not winning would be ok. It would allow other teams have the spotlight for a while as AEW establishes themselves further on TNT.
