The Young Bucks announced they’d never challenge for the AEW Tag Team Championship again if they don’t beat FTR at Full Gear, and the stipulation was certainly met with some criticism.
Not only does it seem like a condition saved for a lengthier feud, but Cody Rhodes used the same stipulation at last year’s Full Gear event when he faced off with Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship. One day after the big announcement, the Bucks shared a new social media post and an explanation of why they added the stipulation in the first place.
“There’s so much more to this than just a ‘dream match’. It’s the impossible match that nobody saw ever happening & it’s been brewing for years. It’s the clash of two polar opposite styles. They think they’re the best at what they do, & we think we’re the best. They’re a throwback retro team, while we have fought for years to usher in new ideas.
“But more importantly for us, this is a story about overcoming failure. We failed in the tag team tournament. We failed in our tag title match against SCU. We failed in our tag team title match against Hangman & Kenny. We failed in the tag team gauntlet. It’s time to put ourselves in a no-fail situation. Our backs are now against the wall & we’ve got to bet on ourselves. If we don’t win, we’ll never challenge for the tag titles ever again. No more failing.”
