FTR put their AEW Tag Team Championship on the line against SCU, who were the first tag champs in the promotion, and the match had a 20-minute time limit as dictated by the titleholders.

The former champs came in looking to pull off an upset and really forced a fast tempo against the champs. Both Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky showed that they have plenty left in the tank despite being veterans and the challengers largely dominated the opening 10 minutes.
This corner cam is pretty sweet, huh?@CashWheelerFTR probably doesn't think so though.

However, the champions would battle back as FTR weren’t about to lose the belts without a fight. Sky would nearly win the belts for his team with a diving crossbody and several pinning combinations, but some interference from Tully Blanchard resulted in only a two count. Ultimately, Blanchard would be involved in the finish as he held down one of Sky’s legs so he couldn’t kick out.
