The Lucha Bros are once again AAA World tag team champions.
They regained the titles this evening from The Young Bucks in the main event of AAA’s Verando de Escandalo event in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. The Bucks had El Hijo Del Tirantes, the company’s heel referee, in their corner but during a moonsault Nick took out both his opponent and Tirantes. A new referee came out to officiate the rest of the match. The Lucha Bros then regained the titles, with Pentagon Jr. pinning Matt after hitting a package piledriver/foot stomp combination.
The Young Bucks defeated the Lucha Bros in an impromptu bout at AAA’s Rey de Reyes event back on March 16 to win the titles for the first time. They successfully retained the titles in a rematch at AEW’s Double or Nothing event on May 25th. The Bucks ended up holding the championships for 93 days.
It was at Rey de Reyes that AAA and AEW announced their new working relationship, with both the Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes making appearances.
