NEW CHAMPIONS! Lucha Bros Vanquish the Young Bucks in a Brutal Steel Cage Match at AEW All Out 2021

Published 09/05/2021, 9:44 PM EDT


AEW All Out has been an absolute slobber knocker of a PPV so far. We already witnessed a stellar opener, a beautiful women’s title match and the AEW debut of Minoru Suzuki. But if there’s anything that embodies the spirit of AEW, it was the brutal yet brilliant AEW Tag Team Championship steel cage match between the Young Bucks and the Lucha Bros.

Lucha Bros and Young Bucks go to war

The Young Bucks and the Lucha Bros are rivals for life. They faced off at All Out 2019 in a brutal ladder match, but their steel cage match blew their previous clash out of the water. After close to thirty minutes of thirty minutes of non-stop action, the Lucha Bros prevailed.

Muelas de Gallo performed the Lucha Bros’ entrance music, which instantly pointed towards a potential title change. However, the Young Bucks’ actions led the crowd on a rollercoaster of an experience. Pulling out all the stops, Matt and Nick Jackson took their heelish antics to another level.

The hate both teams felt towards each other came bursting out as both teams struck each other in the face with a thumbtack covered boot. While many thought the BTE Trigger would end things for Penta, Fenix saved his brother and their tag team title hopes. We even witnessed Penta hit an insane top rope Destroyer on Matt Jackson.

Fenix once again proved why he’s an absolute treasure, diving off the top of the cage to take out the Jackson brothers. The assisted piledriver led to the three-count and the Lucha Bros first ever title win in AEW.

Is this the downfall of the Elite?

The Young Bucks’ first loss in more than a year might signal the downfall of the Elite. Since they turned heel, the Bucks have sided with Kenny Omega to form the most vicious faction in AEW. If you thought the Inner Circle was brutal, the new heel-Elite took things a step further.

Now that the group is without the tag team championships, one can safely assume their reign in AEW is under threat. While Omega defends his AEW World Title against Christian Cage later in the show, his earlier loss to him on AEW Rampage sets the odds against him.

If the Bucks come out to aid Omega during the main event, it’ll be a testament to their toughness. However, one thing is for sure; we’re in for a stellar second-half of AEW All Out.
