Colten and Austin Gunn told everyone they would be taking the AEW Tag-Team titles away from The Acclaimed. It's just that nobody wanted to listen.
The AEW World Tag-Team Champions, Austin and Colten Gunn of The Gunns joined Fightful's Wrestling Perspective Podcast with Lars Frederiksen of the Punk Rock Band "Rancid" and Dennis Farrell for an exclusive interview.
When asked by Fightful's Dennis Farrell what the moment was like after winning the Tag-Team titles on AEW Dynamite. Austin says winning the titles was an
"I'll just say this; it's a very different feeling when people root for you. You have an underdog story, work hard, the fans are behind you, win the championship titles, and everybody cheers. We did not get that experience; we got the total opposite. When the fans hate you and want anything besides us to win the AEW Tag-Team Championships, and [we] get the 1-2-3 from the referee. You hold your hand up, and I look at Colten, and he's the only one in the arena happy for you, and you look around. Everybody's in shock, flipping you off, screaming profanities at you, and almost coming over the barricade; it's a different feeling." Austin said.
Austin would also talk about the crowd's reaction and how he and his brother told everyone they would become champions from the start. Austin says winning the titles was an "F you" to the fans because everyone was against them.
"It wasn't; oh my gosh, we finally did it. I mean, pardon my French. It was an "F you" guys [fans]. We told you from day one this was going to happen. We told you we were going to beat The Acclaimed. We told you we were going to beat our Dad. We told you this would happen, and when we ripped their hearts out from there, like their best tag team, The Acclaimed. It was the best feeling for me but a different experience." Austin said.
Colten Gunn would stress how only he and Austin believed in each other and knew they would win and prove everyone wrong.
Colten said, "Austin covered Bowens, we got that 1-2-3, and we won. We did it, got them all, we sucked the air right out of this building. I hate every single one of you. My brother and I were the only people who believed each other and were standing on that ramp. It didn't hit me until a couple of days later that we were the tag champs. We did it, and we proved everyone wrong."
Colten and Austin Gunn will defend their AEW World Tag-Team Titles against Top Flight on the March 22nd edition of AEW Dynamite. Fightful.com will provide live results, and they will be located here.
