    Steve mentioned them in another thread, but MSK would be top of the pile for me so far.

    Obviously not the winner from a workmate standpoint, but I'm having a hard time thinking of a team I've enjoyed more than Sting and Darby.

    It's weird, I don't think there's a particular team that stands out for me in AEW. There's been a lot of good, but none have really stood out from the pack.

    This award is difficult. I’m living The Usos with Reigns and I’m a simp for them as everyone knows. In terms of AEW I’d go Lucha Bros but I agree Postie, it’s not clear cut.

    Tempted to vote for Darby & Sting, they have over-delivered on expectations and been a really fun team whereas all the big ticket names have been kinda underwhelming and fell short of the 'best in the world' expectations

    It's not a bad shout. It seems like a lot of teams have underwhelmed this year but Sting/Darby, while not asked to do a whole lot, have consistently over-delivered with really fun matches. Sure they're not rolling out five star classics, but they have yet to have a match that's just a snooze or going through the motions. Darby only has one speed anyway and Sting seems to really cherish every big moment he gets. It's made for a potent combo.

    Right now for me, it’s either FTR or RK-Bro.

    Re: 2021 Tag Team of the Year Ongoing Discussion

    I don't think any AEW team is deserving of this because no team was really a standout. FTR are putting on a nice run towards the end of the year, but Lucha Bros got affected by PAC's travelling issues which made the whole Andrade feud drag and awkward. Young Bucks were good characters but their title run left a lot to be desired apart from the Lucha Bros match. Oddly enough, yeah Sting/Darby is a good shout, but again, I'm sure there were just better teams out there elsewhere.

    Briscoes, RKBro, MSK, and Usos are all probably really good shouts for this.

    I think RKBro are a solid shout for this one. They have great matches, they're both incredibly over and entertaining.

    If Tegan and Shotzi were booked properly, they would be on my list but nah let’s have them beat the tag champions 3 times then break them up and release Tegan.

    Yes I’m still salty.

    Still the best womens tag team out of the major companies despite it though.

    I'll say RKBro for this one, even if I am tired of the WWE concept of "let's slap this funny guy with this not funny guy and make a tag team" thing.

    It might just be that I’ve not paid too much attention to WWE for a few months but I am surprised that the Young Bucks apparently aren’t surefire winners for this? I’ve really enjoyed their matches and their heel turn has been great fun.

    The mileage on the Bucks varies around here, or at least it used to. Their style definitely isn’t for everyone. Personally, they’ve got change the channel heat with me.

    I’d probably go with RK Bro, Uso’s and perhaps Imperium on the WWE/NXT side while my sole AEW nom would be FTR.

    I hated the Bucks during their "well they/won't they" turn heel stuff they did at the beginning of the year but definitely warmed up to them once they fully embraced their inner prick as members of the Super Elite.

    Re: 2021 Tag Team of the Year Ongoing Discussion

    I can never buy the Bucks as babyfaces. The heel turn was well necessary and their matches have been about to their usual standard, but for me I need performances like they had in the cage match and I can't come up with a ton of Bucks matches that grabbed me in that ballpark.

    I'll end up throwing them a nom because they've certainly wrestled some bangers but would be more likely to vote for a more consistent team like Sting/Darby or RKBro.

    Re: 2021 Tag Team of the Year Ongoing Discussion

    I'll definitely be voting for Young Bucks (consistency in tags and trios) and Darby and Sting (fun everytime they wrestle).

    I actually think I prefer AJ and Omos to the best WWE tag team over RKBro. Not sure RKBro have had anything as good as the Viking Raider/AJ and Omos tag match.
