AEW featured an incredible tag team title match on Collision last week, one that will go down as one of the best tag team matches in American history. It turns out that FTR and Bullet Club Gold had a lot of things working against them before the match even started.
The four AEW stars showcased a critically acclaimed match despite minimal preparation. The 2/3 falls AEW World Tag Team Title Match took place on July 15th, featuring FTR and Bullet Club Gold’s dynamic duo, Jay White & Juice Robinson. Wrestling enthusiasts and critics alike have showered the match with praise, with Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter awarding it an impressive 5.25 stars.
In his review of the match, Dave Meltzer highlighted that the greatness of the spectacle extended beyond the in-ring action. Surprisingly, the 57-minute contest seemed to unfold with little preplanning, making the performers’ achievement even more remarkable.
What made the FTR vs. White & Robinson match so impressive in ways a fan wouldn’t know is that very little was planned out.
So many had issues on the Canadian tour with crazy air travel and delays. Robinson didn’t arrive until around 2pm local time, and FTR had things they had to film.
There was an attempt to get the match moved back because with the time in Calgary it was a 6pm local time start.
It was noted to us that those in the match felt they were not prepared to do an hour match, but still pulled it off.
It seems that, no matter the issues before the mach, those four were able to bring it in a big way and leave it all in the ring. Only time will tell what’s next for those two teams, but they had an incredible match in Calgary.
