The Young Bucks are known for their work in New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) and Ring of Honor (ROH), where they became 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 occasions (2009, 2011, and 2013).

They have held the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship a record seven times, three reigns as ROH World Tag Team Champions, two AEW World Tag Team Championships, 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 and AAA World Tag Team Champions once each. All totaled between AEW, ROH, NJPW and AAA, they have held seven World Tag Team Championships, seven Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, and five Six-Man Tag Team Championships (with various stablemates).

On two occasions, first in 2014 and again in 2016, they held the ROH World, PWG World, and IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships simultaneously, and in 2018, they held the IWGP Tag Team, ROH World Six-Man, and NEVER Openweight 6-Man titles simultaneously. They are the first and so far only duo to have won all three of NJPW’s team championships (IWGP Tag Team, IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team, and NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team) together.
