On Feburary 2, 2019, the Lucha Brothers faced The Young Bucks in a match on the independent circuit. After the match The Bucks offered the Lucha Brothers a contract to join All Elite Wrestling (AEW). They would end up signing non-exclusive contracts because they were also signed to Lucha Underground at the time.[1]

At Double Or Nothing, the Lucha Brothers would make their AEW in-ring debut. They would lose the AAA World Tag Team Championships to the Young Bucks.[2] At AAA's Verano de Escándalo, they would win the titles back.[3] They would enter a tournament to crown the first AEW World Tag Team Champions but they lost in the finals to SoCal Uncensored.[4]

This was Pentagón Jr.'s first championship in AEW.[7] Both Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez said that their match was the best cage match that they had ever seen, and that it was one of the best AEW matches in the company's history. Meltzer would rate the match 5.75 stars.[8] They would lose the AAA World Tag Team Championships to FTR (Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler) on the October 16, 2021 episode of Dynamite and they would lose the AEW World Tag Team Championship to Jurassic Express on January 5, 2022 episode of Dynamite.[9][10]
