The semifinals of AEW's Tag Title tournament have now taken place, which means next week's final is officially set.
AEW crowned its first World Champion at All Out when Chris Jericho defeated Hangman Page. It then added a Women's Champion to its roster during the first episode of Dynamite as Riho overcame the odds to beat Nyla Rose. Title-wise, at least for now, all AEW needs to crown is a set of Tag Team Champions, and we are now just one match away from that eventuality.
A tournament has been taking place since Dynamite started airing live on TNT, and it has had its fair share of twists and turns. The Young Bucks suffered a shock defeat in the first round, and SCU had to shake up their plans once Christopher Daniels was left laying by the Lucha Bros.
This past week on Dynamite, the tournament's two semifinal matches took place. The show opened with the aforementioned Lucha Bros taking on Private Party. Unfortunately for the latter, they couldn't pull off another big upset like they did the Bucks. They gave it their all, but Fenix and Pentagon wound up advancing to next week's final. The second semi-final pitted SCU against The Dark Order, who earned a bye in the first round.

Due to the past actions of Lucha Bros, it has been obvious since last week which way this match would go. Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian overcame The Dark Order, setting up a final between them and Lucha Bros. That gives SCU the chance to avenge the damage done to Daniels who announcers revealed will be out for six to eight weeks during this week's Dynamite.
So with that, the final is set. Fans won't have to wait until Full Gear to see it either. AEW will crown its first Tag Team Champions during episode five of Dynamite which will air live on TNT this coming Wednesday. The honor of being the promotion's first-ever champions can only go to one team, and that one team will either be SCU or Lucha Bros.
