Tony Khan booked an All Out rematch then came through for one of AEW's hottest duos.

Everybody loves The Acclaimed.

Max Caster and Anthony Bowens are the brand new AEW Tag-Team Champions. The popular duo dethroned Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland on Wednesday's special 'Grand Slam' edition of Dynamite - some fans believed The Acclaimed should've won the belts back at All Out, but all's well that ends well.

'Swerve In Their Glory' held the belts for a total of 70 days after winning them from The Young Bucks back at 'Fyter Fest' in July. That three-way bout also involved then-Team Taz members Powerhouse Hobbs and Ricky Starks.

Hopefully, this is the start of something special for The Acclaimed. They've managed to rise up through the ranks and go from slightly-grating heel unit to genuinely over babyface sensations. AEW's fanbase was ready to see the titles switch hands on Wednesday night, and Tony Khan didn't disappoint.

It remains to be seen what All Elite will do with Lee and Swerve now they've dropped the straps. They always felt like a thrown-together tag anyway, so major singles runs could be coming for both. Meanwhile, Caster and Bowens should hold the belts with distinction.
