Blonds might have more fun, but it’s no more fun and games for the Blonds! We’ve got ONE THING on our minds and that is maintaining a spot as the top ranked tag team in the company and ultimately challenging, yet again, for the AEW TAG TEAM TITLES!!! 🔥🔥🔥🏈⚾️🔥🔥🔥 https://t.co/KL57cbDtLH— Brian Pillman Jr. (@FlyinBrianJr) July 12, 2021
