Many have called the tag team division in AEW the best of all-time.
Established talent like The Young Bucks, FTR, SCU, Proud N Powerful and Best Friends help lead a division full of promising talent like The Acclaimed, Private Party, and Top Flight. Plus, Dark Order and Inner Circle can throw any combination of talent into the division.
As Co-Executive Vice Presidents and charged with putting together the division, Matt & Nick Jackson have a good problem on their hands when it comes to booking the division.
"It's hard to keep every tag team involved in a storyline. It's almost impossible. At some point, a great tag team will unfortunately be on the sidelines and not doing much. When you have such a great division like this, you'll run into that problem more often than not, which sucks, because you can't have a whole show of just tag matches. What's cool is I think the wrestlers get that and the teams understand that and know their role. They'll perform when they have to. TH2 is a good example. They hadn't done much in the previous year and we told them we were gonna do a little run and they brought it. The tag team we had with them was so good and they had been on the sidelines for a while," said Nick on Sitting Ringside with David Penzer.
Matt added, "Every team, including us, we would come off the bench because we only have a two hour show, so we can only have one or two tag matches on the show and we have a stacked division. It's tough, but we're blessed to have this talented group of guys. I don't remember a division being this talent. I feel we're at a renaissance, just an unbelievable division where 20 years from now, people will look back like 'holy crap, did we not realize what they were giving us every week? Look at this division they had.' We take great pride in it."
AEW has put on some critically acclaimed tag team matches all year including Hangman Page & Kenny Omega vs. The Young Bucks and Best Friends vs. Proud N Powerful in a Parking Lot Brawl.
