The Wingmen Battle Top Flight on AEW Dark
One of the highlights from AEW’s Tag Team Casino Battle Royal was the return of Darius Martin. The young and impressive tag team of Top Flight reunited and fought beside each other for the first time in just over a year. Tonight will be their true return to tag team action against The Wingmen’s “Pretty” Peter Avalon and Ryan Nemeth.
While Darius is returning from injury, his brother Dante Martin has been a staple of AEW television over the last year. Typically when one half of a tag team goes down, the other is pushed to the side until they can compete together. However, that was not the case for Dante, as he was a regular presence on AEW Dynamite and has built substantial momentum as a singles competitor. He has impressed all with his next-level athleticism, and his ability to take flight is seemingly unmatched.
That being said, ring rust is a possibility, and while The Wingmen have not been making many trips to the pay window, they have been actively competing together. They have been building their chemistry and coming together, making themselves a very tough test for the Martin brothers.
Even so, I’m going with Top Flight to pick up the win. Between their natural athleticism and unmatched chemistry, I think they’ll be able to pull off the victory.
