“If you ask Meltzer, the guys of Dirt Sheet or AEW or the internet wrestling community, right? Who is the best tag team in the world right now? They’ll probably say Young Bucks or FTR, right? And I’ll say, you know? I’m watching RK-Bro, and it looks like, they work really well in the ring together. They have a great personality. Like they have a lot of energy. They do a lot of TV interviews, long form where they talk for 5-10 minutes and everything and everything,” said Inferno.
