The Elite defeated Dark Order in a tournament final at All From Sunday to end up being the inaugural AEW world trios champions.
A tournament to crown the initial AEW world trios champions began last month on Dynamite and featured most of the best stables in the business, although there is initially some uncertainty concerning the teams that continued to attain the finals.
The Young Bucks were entered in to the tournament with a mystery partner, even though most assumed it might be Kenny Omega making his in-ring return after nine months on the shelf due to injury, it wasn’t a slam dunk.
Another Young Bucks ally in Adam Cole was considered a chance, but he could be also injured, and your choice was designed to opt for Omega.
With the former AEW world champion back the fold, The Elite continued an extraordinary run in the tournament by beating Andrade El Idolo, Rush and Dragon Lee in the initial round, accompanied by the Will Ospreay-led United Empire in the semifinals.
In the beginning of the tourney, Dark Order was made up of Preston “10” Vance, Alex Reynolds and John Silver, and that group defeated House of Black in the opening round.
Having an injury rendering Vance struggling to continue in the tournament, however, he was replaced by Dark Order ally and former AEW world champion “Hangman” Adam Page.
The brand new and improved Dark Order team took down CLOSE FRIENDS in the semifinals, setting the stage for an extremely anticipated clash with The Elite at All Out.
Page was once an associate of The Elite, but he left the group when he and Omega didn’t see eye to eye any more towards the end of these AEW world tag team title reign.
The Young Bucks remained aligned with Omega, however when Page faced Omega for the AEW World Championship at Full Gear this past year, The Bucks didn’t stand in the form of Hangman beating Omega.
That situation was never really resolved, which resulted in some questions about whether there will be any animosity at All Out.
Ultimately, the long-running team of Omega and The Young Bucks proved too cohesive to topple, because they were victorious over Dark Order and made history because the first trios champs.
