The Young Bucks Make Surprise Appearance at NJPW Resurgence, Attacking Eddie Kingston

One Big Thing

AEW’s The Young Bucks, Matthew and Nicholas Jackson, made a rare cross-promotional appearance at NJPW Resurgence, attacking Eddie Kingston after his match against Gabe Kidd for the NJPW STRONG Openweight Title.

Key Takeaways

  • Eddie Kingston lost the NJPW STRONG Openweight Title to Gabe Kidd at the event.
  • Jack Perry distracted Kingston, allowing The Young Bucks to ambush him in the ring.
  • This marks The Young Bucks’ first NJPW appearance outside of Forbidden Door events since leaving the company in 2019.

Why It Matters

The surprise appearance by The Young Bucks and Jack Perry highlights the ongoing partnership between AEW and NJPW. It also sets the stage for the upcoming Anarchy in the Arena match at AEW Double or Nothing, where The Elite (The Young Bucks, Jack Perry, and Kazuchika Okada) will face Eddie Kingston, Cash Wheeler, Dax Harwood, and Bryan Danielson.

The Elite’s NJPW History

Before forming AEW, The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega were prominent figures in NJPW. The Young Bucks’ last NJPW match before this appearance was at Wrestle Kingdom 13 in 2019. Kazuchika Okada, their ally, is a record-breaking former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion.

Upcoming Anarchy in the Arena Match

The attack on Eddie Kingston adds further fuel to the already heated rivalry between The Elite and their opponents for the upcoming Anarchy in the Arena match at AEW Double or Nothing on May 26.
