AEW Rewind: Elite champagne celebration, BTE Champion crowned, more!

Don’t have time to follow all of AEW’s online content? Don’t worry. We got you covered with the AEW Rewind, which will rewind through social media bits and YouTube videos from the past week to prepare you for Wednesday night Dynamite.

Being the Elite had the most newsworthy moments in regard to Full Gear fall out. Kenny Omega and SCU celebrated the Young Bucks finally becoming tag champs. The first BTE Championship winner was determined. Eddie Kingston shared his feelings about coming up short. Also, a legit door may have opened for the Dark Order to recruit Hangman Page.

“Full Gear Fall Out” - Being The Elite, Ep. 229 featured:

  • The Young Bucks soaked in the ambience of the Full Gear venue the night before the dream match against FTR. Nick called Matt a stupid dumbass for the stipulation of no more tag title shots if they lose. Matt has a plan B if things go south. He flashed a photo of the TNT tag titles.
  • The Bucks were back at Walmart but still couldn’t find their action figures.
  • John Silver and Alex Reynolds recruited Michael Nakazawa. Nak took off his stinky underwear to claw their faces.
  • Christopher Daniels asked Brandon Cutler to pose with a belt. Cutler was excited to hold a title belt, but Daniels just meant a regular belt.
  • Matt confirmed his knee injury in real life. His MCL is healing, so he’ll be fine for FTR.
  • Cutler asked Frankie Kazarian for the whereabouts of the pay window since he never won before. Kaz explained it wasn’t a real thing.
  • Time for the gator golf tournament final to win the BTE Championship. Trent, John Silver, and Matt Jackson battled it out for supremacy. In the end, Matt missed a short putt. That allowed Trent to snatch victory. Trent is the inaugural BTE Champion.
  • Leva Bates butt in on Miro’s video game with Kip Sabian. She destroyed Kip.
  • Jurassic Express shared an ice bath. They got out naked. Anna Jay saw their shrinkage and laughed.
  • Highlights of Bucks vs FTR followed by an Elite champagne celebration. The Bucks partied with Kenny Omega and SCU. Hangman wandered by backstage but decided not to enter.
  • Eddie Kingston was close to tears for losing to Jon Moxley. He sold his soul to the devil to get the match. He’ll be back though.
  • Silver was also in tears after losing to Orange Cassidy. The Dark Order consoled their little big man. Silver took out his anger by punching an orange. Dark Order cheered him up with a ‘F-k Hangman’ chant. Hangman walked in, poured himself a drink, joined in on the chant, then split. Evil Uno left to try a recruitment pitch on Hangman.

The turn of events for Hangman Page was the most intriguing. His next step will be key, but I never considered it could be alongside the Dark Order. In my opinion, that ship has sailed, but that episode showed a passable effort to salvage the potential relationship. We’ll have to see if any of that carries over to Dynamite or if it was just BTE fodder.

Cody put over Darby Allin in defeat.

Even TNT showed support for the new title holder.

Cody put out a new t-shirt. I get Scooby-Doo vibes from the art style. The ‘Still Standing’ message is odd timing considering he lost.

We’ll close with a message from Taz explaining the FTW Championship concept again. Nothing says FTW like filming inside a department store with elevator music in the background.

Would you like to see Hangman Page join the Dark Order? Does Taz’s FTW explanation make sense?
