An impromptu title bout followed, with the Bucks picking up the win and the title with the Meltzer Driver.
Fellow AEW VP Cody had appeared earlier in the show for an interview segment, where he explained that as part of AEW’s relationship with AAA, he aimed to provide Mexican fans with appearances from stars such as Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega.
Of course, the Young Bucks and the Lucha Bros. will square off again at AEW Double or Nothing on May 25.
