The Elite took on Death Triangle (PAC, Penta El Zero M and Rey Fénix) for the AEW World Trios Tag Team Championship during Dynamite tonight. The two teams faced each other in a Escalera de la Muerte (ladder) match.

The match featured plenty of breathtaking aerial dives into ladders and tables. The two teams gave everything they got to entertain the crowd at the Kia Forum. Matt Jackson ate a package piledriver on a wedged ladder as well.


The closing moments of the match saw Kenny Omega deliver an avalanche One Winged Angel on Rey Fenix from the wedged ladder. The Cleaner avoided a finisher from PAC and climbed the ladder to unhook the titles for the win.

The ladder match served as a conclusion to the Best of 7 Series between The Elite and Death Triangle. The two teams have previously faced each other in a Falls Count Anywhere match on the December 28, 2022 edition of Dynamite.

For those wondering, the first match in the series took place at the Full Gear pay-per-view event on November 19, 2022. Death Triangle got the win over The Elite, albeit in controversial fashion, that night.

PAC and the Lucha Bros. would go on to have a 3-1 lead against The Elite until Kenny Omega and The Bucks tied the series 3-3 on December 28th. The Elite’s final win took place tonight and they were crowned the new AEW World Trios Tag Team Champions.

Tonight’s win made Kenny Omega a double champion as well. The Cleaner defeated Will Ospreay for the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship at NJPW’s Wrestling Kingdom 17 event in Tokyo Dome.
