The Young Bucks are best known for their work in New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) and Ring of Honor (ROH). The team is known for their use of superkicks (dubbed the "superkick party") and high flying moves in their matches.
They were prominent members of the NJPW faction Bullet Club, after a "civil war" in 2018, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, "Hangman" Adam Page, Marty Scurll and Cody Rhodes formed The Elite. They have performed for various American independent promotions – most notably Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) – and had previously worked for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) as Generation Me under the names Max and Jeremy Buck.
On the independent circuit, they have won numerous titles as well, including four reigns as PWG World Tag Team Champions as well as being the only team to win PWG's annual Dynamite Duumvirate Tag Team Title Tournament on three separate occasions (2009, 2011, and 2013).
During a long interview with Monsters & Critics, Nick spoke about MJF: “Pretty much just like you said. We give them pointers of what direction their character’s going with and what type of feud they are going forward with and pretty much say, “Hey, go hit a home run”.
Man, that was a money segment, I’ll tell you this — it’s hard to, like, know how long your promos going. That one in particular, the MJF and Jericho one, they went over the time that we gave them by like a few minutes.
So, we actually had to cut some of Pac and Hangman’s match at the last minute. But that was such a money segment that no one told them to rush it because they were doing such a good job”.
