MJF and Adam Cole failed in their bid to capture the AEW Tag Team titles on Dynamite.
FTR retained their titles in the main event of Saturday’s show. Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio said he was stunned watching the finish.
“They better have a hell of a storyline because I’m watching this match and it’s just like…I rarely get stunned by finishes…I did not think this was a good thing,” he said “Whatever the storyline is, I hope it’s really good…I just thought this was the night."
Later, Meltzer explained why he felt the titles should have changed hands.
“This was the perfect opportunity for a couple of weeks title run. Just a thing where you do it and go back with it or don’t go back with it, you can hold two belts for a little while.”
In regards to the eventual breakup between the two, both Meltzer and Alvarez thought it shouldn’t happen anytime soon, and any plans for them can always be pushed back.

“They should not break up anytime soon, Meltzer said. “Their merch is selling. That’s why I thought they should win the titles, go with the frickin’ momentum.”
“The fact is, they should have won the titles,” Alvarez said. “It was the easiest thing to do. Whatever plan you got for MJF and Adam Cole, you can always do it later, ‘cause it’s fake.”
