House of Black and Wardlow were crowned as the new AEW World Trios and TNT champions respectively last night at the Revolution pay-per-view.
The trio of Malakai Black, Brodie King, and Buddy Matthews defeated The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega in a thrilling match after King delivered the Dante’s Inferno finisher on Nick Jackson. This win ended The Elite’s reign of just 53 days after they beat Death Triangle in the final best of seven match on Dynamite in January. This is the first gold for any of House of Black members.
Wardlow became a two-time TNT champion following his victory against Samoa Joe on the show. Wardlow won the match and the title after chocking out Joe with a rear naked choke hold. Joe held the title for just 32 days after he won it from Darby Allin on Dynamite last month. Joe won the TNT title for the first time against Wardlow at the Full Gear pay-per-view in November of last year, ending Wardlow’s 136-day reign.
Wardlow will now have to defend the title against Powerhouse Hobbs this Wednesday live on Dynamite after Hobbs won the Face of the Revolution ladder match last week.
MJF, Jaime Hayter, and The Gunns retained their respective titles in the other title matches.
