When AEW Dynamite began, they started off by adding a major heel faction to oppose the Elite. One year later, and they have seriously fallen off. They went from being the top heel stable in the game, led by the AEW Champion Chris Jericho, to losing feuds to Orange Cassidy & Best Friends, and Sammy Guevara being trashed at Full Gear. The Inner Circle might be back on their way up with the additions of MJF & Wardlow to their ranks following Full Gear, but Team Taz has risen into their spot.
Led by ECW legend and AEW color commentator Taz, Brian Cage & Ricky Starks have slowly but surely worked their way into the Top 5 rankings in AEW. Now with Will Hobbs at their back, and having wiped out Cody Rhodes & Darby Allin? They might be on their way to the top of AEW, and it might just be what AEW needs.
Nightmare Family vs. Team Taz Could Be The Major Feud Of AEW’s Winter
While we have a few major matches on the horizon like Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley, Death Triangle vs. Eddie Kingston’s Family, and MJF vs. Sammy Guevara, but those aren’t potentially long lasting feuds. However, much like how The Elite vs. Inner Circle dominated a lot of early air-time in AEW, Team Taz vs. The Nightmare Family might become a major angle in the coming weeks.
Darby Allin Is The Wildcard
TNT Champion Darby Allin is in the middle of this feud, but could go either way, likely a major plot-point of this coming feud. He was an early recruit target of Taz, but rejected his advances. Allin is also a major rival of Cody Rhodes, them having four fantastic matches, one of the best series of matches in AEW history. Over that storyline, Allin & Rhodes built respect for each other.
However, Allin is crucial to this potential storyline, and he might need to pick a side and stop being a lone wolf. If he joins The Nightmare Family, he’d fall into the background as part of Rhodes crew, which could be enough to send him back to Taz and wanting to play the role of a turncoat.
