Bullet Club Gold Earns AEW Tag Team Titles Shot on Collision, Match Date and Stipulation Revealed

AEW Collision didn’t have Championship gold on the line, but there was an opportunity to get one step closer to it. One of the most anticipated matches of the night was an Eliminator Match between current AEW Tag Team Champions FTR and Bullet Club Gold. With the stipulation, if Bullet Club Gold won, they would earn a shot at the Tag Team Championships. If FTR won, Bullet Club Gold could not challenge for the Titles again as long as FTR were Champions. The match that followed was absolutely thrilling and full of twists and turns, and at several points, the match seemed over. It would ultimately be Bullet Club Gold walking away with the win, and now the Title match and its stipulation has been revealed.

After the match, the Title match was made official for next week’s Collision. It will be a 2 out of 3 Falls match for the Titles, and it should be just as great if not better than their match tonight.
