Escalera De La Muerte Almost Didn't Happen On Last Week's AEW Dynamite
AEW's Elite/Death Triangle Best-Of-Seven decider was in doubt before showtime.
Visa issues almost stopped the Best-Of-Seven AEW Trios Titles finale between The Elite and Death Triangle from going ahead.
This is according to Bryan Alvarez, who tweeted as much, saying that;
"Before it erupts into craziness, the stress last week prior to the final Death Triangle vs. Elite match was a visa issue that almost prevented the match from happening."
The sense of urgency was seemingly in response to some cryptic comments from The Young Bucks in the the most recent episode of Being The Elite. The pair filmed a piece to the camera outside the Kia Forum just hours before the Escalera de la Muerte main event, with Matt first noting that he was "not in the mood for a ladder match", before Nick added that the duo "went through a lot of stress that no one has a clue about in the last week. So much stress". Matt added "So much stress that we can’t even talk about here, maybe one day in our second book that I won’t write ever because it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life" before Nick concluded the bit with "But we got some relief last night, and now hopefully things go right".
Ahead of speculation mounting on what else could have been the problem, Alvarez' tweet shone light on the situation and shut down any further mystery.
