The AEW World Tag Team Championship represents the best the company has to offer. AEW’s stacked tag division is the promotion’s calling card every Wednesday night. It’s fair to say the AEW tag titles are as important as the World Title. The Young Bucks have been adamant in proving that tag wrestling can be the main event. Now that they are the champs, Matt and Nick Jackson will superkick everyone standing in their way as the top dogs of the division. After Kenny Omega and “Hangman” Adam Page‘s excellent reign, followed by FTR‘s short but memorable run, and now The Bucks, the tag straps are going to be held by the best of the best. The question is, who is next in line? Here are the top choices to become the next AEW World Tag Team Champions:
The “Dino-Mite” trio of Jungle Boy, Marko Stunt, and Luchasaurus have become resident heartthrobs. The Boys and their Dinosaur are a fantastic trio together. No matter if they win or lose, the faction stays over due to their stellar gimmick and loveable personalities. Jurassic Express has been on the cusp of greatness for over a year now. It’s only a matter of time until these three find bigger success in AEW. These three are insanely loveable which contrasts well against The Elite. The Young Bucks are at their best wrestling heel. Picking apart loveable babyfaces as detestable pricks is Matt and Nick’s bread and butter. What more natural babyfaces are there than Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus? After Kenny’s malicious attack on Marko months ago, as well as the loss at All Out, AEW could be setting up a title change 65 million years in the making.
Isiah Kassidy and Marq Quen were brought into AEW by The Young Bucks. Private Party showed they belonged on top by beating Matt and Nick on the second ever Dynamite. Currently, Private Party, along with Matt Hardy, are at a crossroads. More often than not, they go 50/50 on Dynamite losing to The Bucks. Matt Hardy’s heel turn may very well drag his proteges to the dark side as well. The Young Bucks have set up passing the torch to the team that feels like their natural successors. Private Party need that little spark and they can get revenge on their mentors. AEW has an excellent crop of young talent to carry the banner. The thing is, they need to be afforded the opportunity to become stars sooner rather than later.
Santana & Ortiz
— Santana / Proud & Powerful🇵🇷 (@Santana_Proud) January 4, 2021
Santana and Ortiz are continuing on as Chris Jericho‘s lackeys. Despite this, the time will come when they break out on their own and shine. The duo had a killer feud with Best Friends that resulted in a legitimate five-star match. They were one of the best tag teams IMPACT Wrestling ever had. The former LAX personify tag team excellence and beating The Bucks would give The Inner Circle some gold once again. After that parking lot brawl, in addition to the MVP of the match Trent‘s mom Sue, how can you not reward one of the hardest working teams of this generation? Ortiz’s comedic chops alone on BTE make them worthy of title glory.

The Lucha Bothers will no longer be denied. Penta El Zero M and Rey Fenix, with Pac by their side, stand united as Death Triangle. Fenix put on amazing bout against Omega this past Wednesday on Dynamite. Penta is a regular world champion across multiple promotions. The Lucha Bros represent the best in all of lucha libre. They were many people’s favorites to become the inaugural champions. Unfortunately, they were denied by SCU in what was ultimately the wrong call. Penta and Fenix are cool, energetic, charismatic, and full of marketing potential. It’s way past time to right the wrong and crown these masked brothers the best tag team in the universe.
The Dark Order
The greatest rivals to The Young Bucks in PWG. Evil Uno and Stu Grayson will destroy those good Christian boys one day. Now that Hangman is slowly but surely indoctrinating himself into the cult, these disciples have the missing piece to destroy The Elite. Uno and Grayson fought The Young Bucks constantly in PWG. Their rivalry defined the company’s regular tag team showcases. Uno and Grayson, thanks to Brodie Lee, have flourished in the Dark Order and are ready to become champions. Plus who doesn’t want to see Hangman manipulated into costing Matt and Nick their dreams again?
The Good Brothers
Bullet Club is back. Except for the fact that it never left as well as missing AJ Styles, Finn Balor, and G.O.D. Regardless, the Biz Cliz is here in AEW and that will incur insurrection. Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson were made men in Japan before their disastrous excursion to WWE. They held tag gold in WWE, NJPW, and now IMPACT. Kenny’s alignment with Don Callis and his cohorts are clearly building to another implosion. If there’s one thing Bullet Club is known for, it’s fighting each other. Kenny’s greed will get the better of him and could possibly drive a final wedge between himself and his “best friends.” Gallows and Anderson could use the redemption as well after terrible feuds in WWE. Bullet Club rules the wrestling world and the AEW World Tag Team Titles could very well be good to go for the Good Brothers.
