The Young Bucks on planning matches

The Young Bucks together with Cody Rhodes, have founded a new federation, the All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and in May the first event called Double or Nothing will be staged where they will face the Lucha Brothers, or Pentagon Jr.

and Rey Fénix. They have held the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship a record seven times, three reigns as ROH World Tag Team Champions, three reigns as NJPW's NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champions (twice with The Elite teammate Kenny Omega, and once with Marty Scurll), two reigns as ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions (first with Elite teammate Adam "Hangman" Page, and then with Cody) and the IWGP Tag Team Champions and AAA World Tag Team Champions once each.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, they reflected on planning matches: “Putting together matches is almost just as fun as performing the matches, often. You get to create art from a blank canvas. It’s always a challenge when you’re given limitations—time constraints, injuries, story lines to get across—but I enjoy making the most out of my minutes and always turning in an entertaining segment.

Every week you get to work with someone new, so it feels like you’re collaborating and writing a new song with a new partner all of the time. Sometimes you can see real-life character flaws in each other, whether it’s insecurities or lack of confidence.

However, you can also see how truly talented and intelligent your colleagues are, sometimes giving new ideas from a different perspective, seeing things from a different lens”.
