Young Bucks win Tag Team Titles at AEW Full Gear


With their backs up against the wall in terms of competing for the AEW Tag Team Titles ever again, the Young Bucks defeated FTR for the belts at Full Gear.

The finishing sequence started with Cash Wheeler knocking out Matt Jackson with a superkick. Instead of going for the pin, he decided to attempt a springboard 450 splash, diverging from the team's "No flips, just fists" mantra. He missed the move and Jackson hit him with a barefoot superkick with his bad foot/ankle to get the pin.

In their third opportunity to win the titles, the Bucks became the fourth-ever AEW tag champions, ending FTR's two month reign in the process. They had won the belts at September's All Out with a win over Kenny Omega and Hangman Page, successfully defending the titles three times.

After earning the title shot in a four-way on Dynamite, the Bucks added a stipulation that if they couldn't beat FTR for the titles, they would never challenge for them again.
