Predicting AEW's next Champions
All Elite Wrestling has been on TNT for two months now, largely to critical and fan acclaim. About a month removed from the company's first pay per view in its television era, Full Gear, AEW has settled in for the long haul.
With that, though, people have obviously begun to think about when the promotion's titles will change hands, and to who? The three inaugural champions, Chris Jericho, Riho, and SCU obviously won't be holding on to those titles forever. So who will be the ones that dethrone them?
Let's throw our hats into the fun and try to figure out the next set of AEW champions.
AEW World Tag Team Champions: Santana and Ortiz (Proud and Powerful)
With their victory at Full Gear over The Young Bucks, and with the Lucha Brothers' retreat from the title scene since then, Santana and Ortiz remain the most obvious contenders to dethrone current champions SCU, and their hand has strengthened in the past few weeks.
Surely, the prospect of gold won't be off their minds forever? SCU, meanwhile, won't be able to dodge them forever. At some point, the champions and the back alley brutes of The Inner Circle are going to have to collide with the titles on the line.
With the Inner Circle still going very strong, it only makes sense for the group to consolidate its power over AEW even more by crowning Santana and Ortiz the tag team champions.
No other team has real momentum at this time, so one can expect a showdown between SCU and these two sooner rather than later, even though we're still a ways yet away from AEW's next pay per view in February. By then at the latest, Santana and Ortiz should secure some gold around their waists.
