The Elite Lose World Trios Championship Match At Full Gear In AEW Return

The Elite

The Elite are officially back in AEW.

They created All Elite Wrestling (AEW), and they were also suspended from the same company for two and a half months. However, The Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) made their official comeback to AEW at the promotions Full Gear pay-per-view. However, taking on Death Triangle (PAC, Rey Fenix and Penta El Zero M.), they would lose their title shot match for the AEW World Trios Championship.

The Elite, who were a clear fan favorite throughout the bout, looked like they were going to reclaim the belts, but Rey Fenix got a hammer involved, slamming Kenny Omega in the head to seal the deal for the win. Referee Rick Knox had his eyes on the action when the strike happened, however, did not ring the bell to call off the match for disqualification.

When The Elite made their return, they came into the arena to the Kansas song “Wayward Son.” The Young Bucks previously attempted to trademark “Wayward Sons,” however, the plans would be abandoned quickly.

At AEW All Out, The Elite got into a backstage brawl with CM Punk following his media scrum comments, and Omega and The Young Bucks have been away from AEW TV ever since. Altogether, the brawl would cause several suspensions, Ace Steel’s firing and CM Punk’s future in the company to be extremely cloudy.
