Add another match to the pile for AEW Double or Nothing, as the World Tag Team Championship will be defended in a three-way match pitting champs Jurassic Express against Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks and Swerve Strickland & Keith Lee.
Lee & Strickland knocked off the Workhorsemen in short order on Dynamite Wednesday night, then announced that that victory bumped them into the top five of ranked tag teams. This brought out Hobbs & Starks for a jaw-jacking session.
It didn't take long for the tag champs Jurassic Express & Christian to make their way out to issue the challenge to the two teams for the upcoming PPV. This would mark the team's sixth title defense in their four-plus-month reign at the top of the division.
.@starkmanjones and @TrueWillieHobbs have some opinions about the state of the #AEW World Tag Team division, but the Tag Team champs @boy_myth_legend and @luchasaurus and @Christian4peeps want the final word!

The match was teased last week on Rampage when Jungle Boy lost an FTW Championship match against Starks when Swerve inadvertently caused a distraction when he tried to stop Starks from using the title belt. This led to tension with Christian, who blamed Strickland for leading to Jungle Boy's downfall.
The tag title match will get a preview next week on Dynamite when Swerve, Jungle Boy and Starks all tangle in a three-way match of their own, which Christian said is an opportunity for JB to get his win back from Rampage.
