Jay White & The Gunns Defeat the Critically Acclaimed, Unify Trios Titles at AEW Dynasty Zero Hour

Jay White and The Gunns defeated The Acclaimed and Billy Gunn in a winner-takes-all bout for the AEW Trios and ROH Six-Man Tag Team Championships on the AEW Dynasty pre-show. Jay White pinned Billy Gunn to secure the win with a Blade Runner after “Daddy Ass” endured a ton of fouls and was likely to take the win at some point.

Anthony Bowens and White started the match opposite each other before Billy and Austin Gunn signed on for their respective partners. They shared a brief father-son moment as Billy Austin helped Gunn to his feet but then locked him in a side headlock followed by a shoulder tackle to drop him. Colten Gunn also got some time in the ring with his father, attempting to blindside Billy – only for Billy to take the blow and knock him back. Since Billy was impervious to insult, this would become a recurring theme throughout the fight, leading to the final episode between himself and White. Gunn nearly won the match with a Famouser, but White would press on to deliver the elusive Blade Runner and ultimately control his opponent for the count.

The Acclaimed’s run as Trios Champions ends after 203 days; they originally won the House of Black title last August. The two sets of trio titles are now officially unified in the hands of Bullet Club Gold – curiously billed on this show as The Bang Bang Gang – who defeated The Mogul Embassy for the titles on ‘AEW Dynamite’ in January.
