The Elite’s AEW Return Confirmed

The dust has seemingly settled and the announcement has been made that The Elite will return to AEW television with their suspension at an end.

The Elite trio of Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks were suspended by AEW and stripped of their AEW Trios Championship for their part in the alleged backstage fight that took place at All Out. Reports suggest The Buck confronted CM Punk after Punk lambasted several people – including them – at the post-show media scrum.

The Elite are reported to have since returned to their backstage roles as EVPs in the company and their return to television has been teased for several weeks now with the group appearing in vignettes, and now their official on-screen return has been announced.

On Dynamite in Bridgeport, CT, following a successful defence of the AEW Trios Championship, Death Triangle issued a challenge to The Elite to face them at Full Gear for their title. The Elite were the first Trios Champions in company history, winning a tournament at All Out but were soon stripped of the gold. The match was then confirmed on the show and on social media by AEW.

With the championships vacant, Death Triangle squared off with the Best Friends and Orange Cassidy to crown new champions, a match that PAC, Penta El Zero M, and Rey Fenix won.
