Spoilers for Dynamite on Wednesday, so read at your own risk. AEW taped matches on Tuesday for Dynamite, and one of them had Adam Page & Kenny Omega win the AEW Tag Team Championships from SCU (h/t Fightful). SCU were the first AEW Tag Team Champions, making this the first title change in company history. According to the report, Omega celebrated with the Young Bucks, but Page celebrated with the fans. How this will develop, and who will get the next crack at the titles, will be interesting to see.
