The Elite return at AEW Full Gear, lose Trios title match

Death Triangle retained their titles after Fenix hit Kenny Omega with a hammer.

The Elite are back in AEW -- but Death Triangle are still the Trios Champions.

In their first match in more than two months, Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks unsuccessfully challenged for the AEW Trios titles at Saturday's Full Gear pay-per-view. PAC, Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix retained after Fenix gave in and cheated to get the win.

After initially refusing to use a hammer when PAC wanted him to, Fenix struck Omega with the hammer and pinned him to get the victory. Omega was going for the One Winged Angel, but PAC put the hammer in Fenix's hand. When Omega lifted Fenix up, Fenix hit him with the hammer.

Death Triangle became AEW Trios Champions after The Elite were stripped of the titles this September. The Elite were crowned the inaugural champions at All Out, but they had to vacate the titles following their involvement in the post-All Out brawl.

AEW's investigation into CM Punk and The Elite's backstage fight concluded last month with The Elite being brought back but CM Punk expected to exit the company.

At Full Gear, The Young Bucks & Omega entered to the song "Carry on Wayward Son" by Kansas. The Young Bucks filed a trademark for "The Wayward Sons" on November 3, but they recently abandoned the trademark application.

There were "F*ck CM Punk" and "Colt Cabana" chants by the crowd during Death Triangle vs. The Elite.
