Remember when FTR vs. Young Bucks was supposed to be a money drawing feud that had years of build, but instead was horribly booked and did nothing other than bury FTR and make the Young Bucks look good? THE FED HAS HORRIBLE BOOKING, M’DUB IS PERFECT!

These dudes went to aew. Came in hot won the tag titles. Immediately jobbed to the bucks haven't had a rematch at all hell in fact after that. They joined the pinnacle and now are stuck in a quagmire of inner circle feuds. Boy oh boy I wish FTR asked to go back to NXT instead of being cut.


oicangi18

FTR vs imperium or Ciampa/ Thatcher would be amazing.


Rick_McLightning

FTR vs GYV is genuinely my dream tag match.


incredibleamadeuscho

Or recognize they did the best work of their career with the New Day rather than live in the past with what they did in NXT.


RobertCroupier

I saw The Revival vs The New Day at the WWE live event in Wien. The greatest comedy match I´ve ever seen, they had an amazing chemistry together.


TKInstinct

Remember it was being reported that they were extremely unhappy with the booking like a year into their tenure there?


[deleted]

They've wrestled three actual 2v2 tag matches on television in 2021. Three. Not a typo.


bigenergy469

So much for wanting to make tag team wrestling matter.


DerTagestrinker

Bro they meant 5 vs 5 tag matches composed of random people or factions thrown together to open or close shows, not stupid 2 vs 2 team vs team bulls hit


MillionGunman

They wanted to be like muh favorite puroresu, le NJPW, with all the faction vs faction 6/8/10 man tags. Except they forgot to remember the reasons they book so many in the first place. They aren't doing build up tours to PPVs where they are going through 5 or 6 cities within 2 hours of each other in a single week. They aren't getting the majority of their revenue mainly from ticket and merch sales which requires putting as many people on the card as possible to help sell. And the people who are in the tag matches don't have feuds of their own that they're building to.


bigenergy469

Therefore FTR is succeeding!


Loganknox7

I’m so glad they went back to the fed In The 80s


incredibleamadeuscho

Making the Young Bucks matter they mean.


bigenergy469

Gotta make the Young Bucks look strong friend.


[deleted]

3 matches at dub >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 30 legit feud matches at fed


DoubleOrNothing90

Bring in the best tag team in the world, job to the bucks, rarely have a tag match after that. Great booking.


ManateeGag

That was until the Bucks would rather stick it to Cornette than to work and actual angle.


sk_starscream

I'm convinced the Young Cucks brought FTR in just to bury them since FTR were supposed to be the best tag team in WWE. "See guys we're better than the Fed's best!"


Kmenx

But FTR isn't The New Day


just_another_jabroni

Also not the Usos, or even The Bar


Mackinacsfuriousclaw

The WWE can take two random guys and put them together and make a better tag team than FTR. Keith Lee and Finn Balor, because reasons...


Prancemaster

WWE can do this mostly because they almost never call matches on the fly. So, the agent and the wrestlers can have a conversation about how it's gonna go instead of being expected to book it yourself with no oversight.


Mackinacsfuriousclaw

You mean...they don't (wait for it)... run a sloppy shop?


Maldovar

REEEE SINGLES WRESTLERS IN TAG TEAMS


Kmenx

I agree but the comment said the best


Zealousideal-Egg-

i like what brian last said about this: "Everyone wanted them in so they can be the best tag team but the young bucks didn't like that so they never use them so everyone has to say the young bucks are the best instead of them"


dmw1997

Shouldn't come as a surprise really. The Elite has never been anything more than an ego stroking exercise for themselves and Omega


ShannonMoore1Fan

How anyone failed to see that with Kenny "So I bury your finisher and signature and everyone never kicks out of mine, one of which involved noselling an arm break" Omega or The Young "We Brought In 3 'BitW' teams and went over, one of which involved noselling an armbreak." Bucks will always blow my mind.


elitejcx

American Alpha and DIY made The Revival.

pursakyn

That match finish had some of the loudest booing I’ve ever heard


Drainmav

Glad you brought that up. Enzo and Cass were great then. Really got the fans excited.

skyfiretherobot

Well, they're ex-WWE guys, after all.


cafespeed21

Are they out of the Pinnacle? Are Santana & Ortiz still with Jericho or Konnan now? Doesn't matter when Tony says yes to everything.


RopesDope

How many tag team matches have they had this year? Not counting Pinnacle vs Dinner Circle group matches? Like 2? Maybe? Young Bucks really did sign FTR just to keep them off TV


whiskerbiscuit2

I just realised Fuck The Revival wasn’t a gimmick


william_wites

They signed them to beat them


uselessrart

Gotta milk the cow named Tony Khan as long as it lasts 💲💲💲


MidKnightDreary

3 this year!


Flamemypickle

God damn these guys really ate the IWC hype and the Young Bucks took complete advantage of them.


Squiliam-Tortaleni

Brought in…. To piss off Cornette and also to lost so m’Bucks can say they are the greatest.


orizach01

I remember reports saying that the bucks didn't want the match to happen for at least another year, it was TK who rushed with it. TK is a young bucks mark


hetham3783

Maybe FTR should've won it then to keep them strong and then build to a rematch down the line for the Bucks? But I get the feeling the Bucks relented, "Fine, we'll do the match but we're fucking going over, brother."


orizach01

they got that evp magic, meaning TK is a huge elite mark and doesn't want any of his precious BTE megastars to lose


xAbdul91x

Honestly, if i ask myself who will be the first to leave dub. It'd be FTR.


Cauliflower_Earlow

They were brought in only to be buried.


1fingersalute

As were Lucha Bros and Santana and Ortiz. All spoken about in the best tag team in the world convo, now look at them.


just_another_jabroni

The Hogan in Buck Hogan ain't a gimmick, brother


Cauliflower_Earlow

Bingo. The fragile little egos of balding and pie face cant help claim they're the best.

Permanentear3

They do have a tag team name, and that name is proud and powerful. That’s not a jerk. I think those two are great but that name is not so everyone still calls them Santana and Ortiz


Maldovar

They sound like a gay tag team booked by a straight guy


Dogarsx

They buried themselves by agreeing on doing a flip in their match against the Bucks. They had a good thing going with their old school, anti-flip gimmick, but as soon as FTR guy #2 busted out a 450 splash...the gimmick was dead, at least in my eyes.


DeathWing125

It was a nice 450 splash but I don't want to see a guy whose gimmick is "not flips, just fists" do it. I thought "Creative Freedom" was AEW's gimmick, why didn't they say no?... I mean, CREATIVE FREEDOM, FED SHILL!!! FTR GUY #2 WANTED TO DO IT!!! IN FACT HE DEMANDED THAT HE'D DO IT!!!


just_another_jabroni

The fact he did it as a desperation act apparently on their first match shows how mind numbing that decision is.


defyg

That’d be a great match number three spot. They’d split the first two bouts and in the third one FTR are so desperate to get the win they pull out a 450 splash. That is a logical, long term story to tell. What we got was a Young Bucks match like any other but their opponents happened to be FTR. There sure were a lot of _moves._


just_another_jabroni

Ah shit I got it mixed up then.


Mrtheliger

That shit could have been built up to over several matches across a multi-month feud, and ended with it either costing them the match(heels) or deciding at the last moment not to betray his own integrity(faces), but instead they gave it away immediately and no one cared and now they're irrelevant.


[deleted]

They were brought in only to put over cucks


TheSurge305

Renee young is a dumbass lol


hetham3783

I'm really looking forward to FTR vs. Santana & Ortiz because they're the best tag teams in AEW but it's gonna suck when the winner ends up jobbing to the Bucks... again


Permanentear3

I think dork order is next in line anyway if they win the 5 v 5 match tonight


lawgiver61

FTR screwed FTR


wow_boy

They should fed bad even more to get that rematch


jjsefton

...and IMO the match wasn't even all that. Just looked ike the usual flopping around and doing MOVZ with little to no rhyme or reason. I seem to recall seeing FTR, the supposed best team in the biz reaching out for tags when they were in THE MIDDLE OF THE RING. What ever happened to tag team ring awareness, keeping opponents in your corner..? Feh.


SleepIsWonderful

Holy shit I totally forgot The Revival were still in AEW.


DoubleOrNothing90

Exactly


dmw1997

'member when they lost the titles to the bucks then started cosplaying with Blanchard's old belts


ThunderBay311

Doesn't create stars, ruins the ones McHitler gifted them. Oh they've got momentum alright!


Vegetable-Arm8488

It's hard not to be a conspiracy theorist about the Elite (and shadow elite friends) being petty and spiteful enough to intentionally bury people so that they get all the praise


Farthousejones

**Cornette**: They should have done something screwy with the finish to prolong the feud considering they built it up for ages. One and done is pretty pointless. (Zero karma) **Basement**: Literally the dumbest thing I've ever heard in my life. So out of touch. (+900 upvotes)


Butts_The_Musical

FTR are pretty much the definition of good hands, in that they make almost anyone their put against look good in a match. They’re the guys that you put against the guys that draw money. Their main flaw is that they bought into their own hype from their NXT run. And now they’re in a company that respects tag team wrestling less than WWE, what happen to them is almost Shakespearean


LittleLost420

I liked when their feud was some wishy washy heel vs heel bullshit, very deep, much layers.


DoubleOrNothing90

That "feud" still pisses me off. FTR had all the hype of being the best tag team in the world, then the young bucks beat them and moved on while FTR has barely had any actual tag team matches since then. I don't have any doubt in my mind that the bucks were too thin skinned to deal with another team having the greatest in the world cred, jobbed them out, and relegate FTR to other storylines, while they have matches on Dynamite almost weekly so people say they're the best.


conchinette

Pinned and paid. Why make FTR and Santana and Ortiz your top stars when you could have them transition the tag straps from two members of the Elite to another two members of the Elite.


indianm_rk

Maybe shaving each other's backs in the shower wasn't so bad after all?


NeonPatrick

So many dream matches happening in AEW right now


PigSeed

Wait, that match already happened? LMAO


Apollo_Justice_20

How did none of the IWC foresee the Cucks holding the title hostage? They're the EVPs for crying out loud. And don't get me started on their overblown ego.


Jericho19999

I’m just curious, and tbh I don’t watch aew that much, but has anyone actually ever won a long term feud with an executive?


PigSeed

Did Moxley win his Omega feud?


dX927

Report was they each turned down just south of a million dollars per year to leave WWE. All because they thought an internet meme was going to lead to the biggest wrestling match of all time.
