We already knew a Battle Royal at next week’s Beach Break would determine who would challenge The Young Bucks for their AEW Tag titles at Revolution on Sun., Mar. 7.
Now we know the field for that Feb. 3 match, and it includes... The Young Bucks?
The champs are one of ten teams in the Battle Royal. If they win, they’ll get to pick their own challenger at the PPV. But if any of the other nine (FTR, Jake Hager & Sammy Guevara, Chris Jericho & MJG, Santana & Ortiz, Evil Uno & Stu Grayson, Private Party, Jurassic Express, The Acclaimed & Top Flight) win, they get the shot at Revolution.
Who would Matt & Nick pick if they pull off a win next week? They’re not exactly being coy about it...

Of course, as we see there, Rey Fenix might have an issue with that - especially if his Lucha (and real life) brother Penta El Zero M is back from the beating Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows laid on him. Actually, I don’t think any of those other nine teams would be thrilled with the Impact Tag champs jumping the line, either.
We’ll see what happens at Beach Break. Here’s an updated look at the card for next week’s Dynamite:
- The Wedding of Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford
- Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers vs. Rey Fenix, PAC & Jon Moxley
- Britt Baker vs. Thunder Rosa
- Tag Team Battle Royal
Sound like a party?
