FTR And Young Bucks Set To Team At AEW All Out

A star-studded eight-man tag has been booked for AEW All Out this Sunday. Tonight on AEW Dynamite, a pre-taped segment saw Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood of FTR approach Matt and Nick Jackson in the locker room following their match last Sunday at AEW All In. FTR asked the Jackson brothers why they neglected to shake their hands in the ring, but before the two teams could continue their conversation, they were interrupted by Bullet Club Gold – “Switchblade” Jay White, Juice Robinson, and Austin and Colten Gunn. After an exchange of words, both sides agreed to a match this Sunday, meaning longtime rivals FTR and the Young Bucks will team for just the second time ever.

This will be far from the first time either FTR or the Young Bucks have tangled with Bullet Club Gold in recent months. After the Gunns defeated FTR late last year, Harwood and Wheeler returned to AEW in March, defeating Austin and Colten for the AEW World Tag Team Championship the following month. FTR has continued to have an on-again/off-again rivalry with the Gunns, with White and Robinson getting added to the mix with the introduction of AEW Collision in June.

The Young Bucks, former Bullet Club members themselves, wrestled The Gunns on the August 16 edition of Dynamite, coming out on top less than two weeks ahead of their title match at All In. Matt and Nick have crossed paths with both White and Robinson in the past, during their shared time in New Japan Pro-Wrestling and Ring of Honor.

Sunday’s match between FTR and the Young Bucks was one of the highlights of the show – an event largely overshadowed by backstage events in the hours and days that followed. An alleged physical conflict between CM Punk and Jungle Boy has led to another round of chaos backstage in AEW, with both Punk and Perry reportedly suspended, and Punk’s future in the promotion possibly up in the air.
