As of this writing at 12:45pm ET on Friday, the poll has 8,937 votes and 85% have voted for Jungleboy and Luchasaurus.
The Best Friends previously defeated SoCal Uncensored and Private Party in a Triple Threat at AEW Fyter Fest to advance to All Out for a chance at a first round bye in the tournament. The Dark Order then defeated Jungleboy and Luchasaurus plus Evans and Angelico in a Triple Threat at Fight for the Fallen, for a chance to face The Best Friends at All Out. The Dark Order then defeated The Best Friends at All Out to earn the first round bye.
The first match of the tournament was announced for the second AEW TNT episode from Boston on Wednesday, October 9 - The Young Bucks vs. Private Party. The semi-finals of the tournament will take place on the fourth AEW TNT episode from Pittsburgh, and then the first-ever AEW World Tag Team Champions will be crowned with the finals on the fifth AEW TNT episode on October 30 from Charleston, WV.
AEW has not confirmed any other tag teams for the tournament as of this writing, but stay tuned.
