A few weeks ago, AEW introduced their World Trios Championships. In a week’s time, the tournament to crown the promotion’s inaugural champions. The finals for the tournament will be held at All Out on September 4 in Chicago.
Trios titles in AEW have been a hot topic for the last few years. Now that the titles have officially been introduced, AEW will have the chance to live up to their own hype. It might be a bit of an uphill battle in the face of criticism that the company has introduced too many championships too quickly, but if anyone can generate interest in tag team wrestling, it’s AEW.
Running down the right side of the bracket, there’s House of Black set to face off against Dark Order and Trustbusters against the Best Friends. It’s unclear at this point who will be representing the Dark Order between John Silver, Alex Reynolds, Evil Uno and Preston Vance. Looking at this half of the bracket altogether, it’s hard not to pick the House of Black as the favorites.
The left side of the bracket is admittedly much more interesting. Death Triangle is set to face off against NJPW’s Will Ospreay and Aussie Open. Next, La Faccion Ingobernables (Dragon Lee, Rush, and Andrade) are set to take on the Young Bucks and their partner, who is yet to be determined. Most fans had assumed that the Young Bucks would be partnering with Hangman Adam Page, but after Page’s heartbreaking rejection of Matt Jackson’s offer, their future is up in the air.
Kenny Omega may be returning, though the likelihood is slim at this point. If no one else, the Bucks could team with their friend Brandon Cutler. He’s no Hangman, but he’s better than nothing.
