AEW Stars Say Their Recent Win Was ‘An F You’ To Fans AEW

The Gunn Club captured the AEW World Tag Team Championship from the Acclaimed back on the February 8 episode of AEW Dynamite to the shock of many fans watching.

The Gunns have held the belts ever since, retaining the titles in a four-way at AEW Revolution, and are seemingly on a collision course with FTR in the future.

Speaking with Fightful’s Wrestling Perspective Podcast with Lars Frederiksen and Dennis Farrell, the Ass Boys discussed their victory, reflecting on the reaction they got from the fans that night.

Austin said:

“I’ll just say this; it’s a very different feeling when people root for you. You have an underdog story, work hard, the fans are behind you, win the championship titles, and everybody cheers. We did not get that experience; we got the total opposite.

“When the fans hate you and want anything besides us to win the AEW Tag-Team Championships, and [we] get the 1-2-3 from the referee. You hold your hand up, and I look at Colten, and he’s the only one in the arena happy for you, and you look around. Everybody’s in shock, flipping you off, screaming profanities at you, and almost coming over the barricade; it’s a different feeling.”

Austin continued on, claiming the victory was an ‘F You’ to the fans, saying:

“It wasn’t; oh my gosh, we finally did it. I mean, pardon my French. It was an “F you” guys [fans]. We told you from day one this was going to happen. We told you we were going to beat The Acclaimed. We told you we were going to beat our Dad. We told you this would happen, and when we ripped their hearts out from there, like their best tag team, The Acclaimed. It was the best feeling for me but a different experience.”

Colten added to the conversation, saying:

“Austin covered Bowens, we got that 1-2-3, and we won. We did it, got them all, we sucked the air right out of this building. I hate every single one of you. My brother and I were the only people who believed each other and were standing on that ramp. It didn’t hit me until a couple of days later that we were the tag champs. We did it, and we proved everyone wrong.”
