All Elite Wrestling has confirmed the signing of Dante and Darius Martin, known together as Top Flight.
The promotion did so the usual way:-
This announcement came less than a week after Top Flight had faced AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks on Dynamite. In kayfabe, Matt and Nick Jackson handpicked Dante and Darius as opponents, claiming the duo reminded them of their younger selves.
A pre-match video package revealed that Top Flight (who are just 21 and 19 years old) had contacted Matt Jackson on a whim, not expecting to hear back from him. Hear back from him they did, and now, they're under AEW contract.
Top Flight were defeated by The Young Bucks but entered a solid showing in a fast, all-action bout. This was the third match on their AEW records, having previously gone 1-1 on Dark, beating jobbers Frankie Thomas and Baron Black and losing to The Dark Order's Evil Uno and Stu Grayson.
Top Flight had made significant inroads into the independent circuit over the past year or so, establishing themselves as one of the scene's most exciting, up-and-coming tag teams. Now, they'll be plying their trade in Jacksonville.
