FTR continue to make the case they’re the best tag team in the world

Less than a week after beating The Briscoes in a classic, the Top Guys did it again to defend their AAA & ROH titles against The Young Bucks on AEW Dynamite

In recent weeks, Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler fired Tully Blanchard, stood up to MJF, and won their long-awaited showdown with The Briscoes to add the ROH Tag Team titles to the AAA versions they’ve held for almost six months. Not content to rest on their laurels, they followed that up on Dynamite tonight (April 6) with another battle with their rivals The Young Bucks.

Like their dream match with Jay & Mark Briscoe, this one had a lot of hype to live up to. It did, at least in this writer’s opinion. The big change from their last match 18 months ago — Dax & Cash working face while Matt & Nick Jackson are now heels — helped. The continued teases of an FTR/Bret Hart alliance didn’t hurt either.

After 15 minutes of back-and-forth, the Bucks dirty tricks had the Top Guys reeling. But either Harwood or Wheeler was always able to kick out, break up a pin on their partner, or in the case of this BTE Trigger on Cash, get a foot on the ropes:

While referee Rick Knox was sorting that out, FTR recovered. Wheeler neutralized Nick with a piledriver, then they gave Matt a taste of The Bucks own medicine: first a BTE Trigger, then a kiss, before using their own finisher to win their second huge match in a week.

FTR made their case. Ready to call them the best tag team in the world?
