The Young Bucks joined BULLET CLUB for one night at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door.
At the event, Matt and Nick Jackson teamed up with El Phantasmo to take on Sting, Darby Allin, and Shingo Takagi. This was originally scheduled to be an Eight-Man Tag, but it was changed to a Trios Match after Hiromu Takahashi had to drop out due to a fever preventing him from traveling.
After not coming out for his entrance, Sting appeared in the rafters during BULLET CLUB's entrance. The lights would then go out and Sting was atop the entry tunnel and jumped onto BULLET CLUB. Though both teams had numerous near falls, it was the Dudes with Attitudes that picked up the win after Shingo pinned El Phantasmo.
