Private Party was an under the radar signing by AEW when the promotion first started as the two men weren't well known outside of Independent appearances.
The creativity and athleticism of Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy stood out to the Young Bucks, who slid into their DMs to start a dialogue.
Appearing on AEW Unrestricted, Private Party discussed joining AEW and how FTR influenced their decision.
"FTR posted something and said, 'One day, we'll fight the Young Bucks, and everybody will rejoice.' I did the same thing, posted a one minute video, and said the same thing FTR said and tagged [The Young Bucks]. A couple of hours later, it blew up. Matt [Jackson] liked it and RT'd it. A week later, I get hit up from Matt and he's like, 'Are you guys signed?' I said, 'No, we're not signed, just doing Independent shows.' Underneath was 'I'm starting a new project up.' Fast forward to February, we get a call from Christopher Daniels who says, 'They want to sign you to AEW.' We shot our shot," said Kassidy.
In one of their first match on Dynamite, Private Party defeated The Young Bucks. The duo called that match a gift and curse because while they won, they haven't hit that level again.
Private Party most recently wrestled on the August 4 episode of AEW Dark, losing to The Butcher & The Blade.
