AEW Full Gear saw the return of The Elite and with it came The Young Bucks. The match for the show involved an AEW Trios Championship against Death Triangle. The returning team, or rather group couldn’t succeed in claiming the championship from Death Triangle.
The Young Bucks have been accused of holding back wrestlers as AEW Executive Vice Presidents. This time, it was WWE Hall of Famer Billy Gunn’s son Colten Gunn who accused the Bucks of preventing them from advancing.
Since their rivalry with the Acclaimed, Austin and Colten Gunn have been on AEW television on a very frequent basis. They went for their father, Billy Gunn, who had joined the Acclaimed. The Gunn Club, Swerve in our Glory, and the Acclaimed have since feuded for the AEW World Tag Team Championship.
I don’t know… I think I prefer being booked on the PPVs
While the Acclaimed successfully defended their titles against Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee, the Gunn Club did not appear on the year’s final All Elite Wrestling pay-per-view. Jungle Boy mocked Colten for not being featured on Full Gear after defeating Luchasaurus in a steel cage bout.
The Young Bucks made their Full Gear debut, challenging the Death Triangle to a trios battle for the Trios Championship alongside Kenny Omega. This was their first match since All Out when they all participated in the Brawl Out. They had their titles removed and were suspended.
I guess if we changed with the bucks and stayed up until 6 am with the boss we could get a spot too.
They put up a barnburner versus the Death Triangle in their eagerly anticipated return to Full Gear. They came short of reclaiming the belts after pinning Kenny Omega just as the Best Bout Machine was ready to deliver the One-Winged Angel to Rey Fenix. Tony Khan announced shortly after that the two sides will play a best-of-seven series in the following weeks.
