After the match, Christian Cage double-crossed Jungle Boy and planted him with the Kill Switch! Christian Cage grabbed a steel chair and cracked Jungle Boy with a con-chair-to!

“Is this how you get recognized? Is this how you get back in the game? This is sickening. This is pathetic!” said Jim Ross…

With Christian Cage’s turn it doesn’t appear that Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus will be going back after the AEW Tag Team championships soon as they (or just Jungle Boy) has Cage to deal with.
