As noted, The Elite (the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega) made their in-ring return Saturday night at AEW Full Gear, losing a match to Death Triangle for the AEW Trios Championships. The Elite came out to Kansas’ “Carry On Wayward Son” for their entrance theme. A report by Dave Meltzer from F4WOnline.com has more details on The Elite’s return, and the use of their new theme song.
According to the report, the plan is for The Elite to use “Carry On Wayward Son” as their entrance music specifically for trios matches. They won’t be using the song for regular tag team or singles matches. The Young Bucks have reportedly been looking to use the song for a long time, since the Bucks and their dad are big fans of the song. Previously, the Bucks used the song as entrance music when taking part in backyard wrestling as teenagers.
The use of the song reportedly did not have anything to do with the recent situation between The Elite and CM Punk. As many fans know, The Elite were suspended following the backstage incident that took place at All Out in September. The suspension for The Elite was lifted after the conclusion of an investigation into the incident. While The Elite were said to be aware that people think the two ideas are related, that’s said to not be the case, and they’ve wanted to use the song for a while.
Additionally, even though Saturday night’s match was contested for the Trios titles, that won’t be the case for all of the subsequent matches in their best-of-seven series with Death Triangle. The Elite can only win the titles outright if they win four matches in the best-of-seven series.
