The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes have a Championship match one week before All In.
At a set of television tapings last month, Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks became ROH Six-Man tag team champions after defeating the Kingdom's Matt Taven, TK O'Ryan and Vinny Marseglia. On August 25th, Ring of Honor will be in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for another taping called Philadelphia Excellence. At this taping, Rhodes and the Young Bucks will make their first defense of the Championship. They will be facing Silas Young, the Beer City Bruiser, and Brian Milonas.
The following is an excerpt of a press release from ROHWrestling.com.

Just minutes from his hometown, “The American Nightmare” Cody teamed with the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks and dethroned arguably the greatest trio in the young history of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championships, The Kingdom.
Although the conclusion of the bout may leave some question marks and add validity to Matt Taven, TK O’Ryan, and Vinny Marseglia’s claims of conspiracy, the ROH Board of Directors have upheld Bullet Club’s victory. The trio will make their first defense in Philadelphia against one of the largest trios in ROH history!
For months in early 2017, former ROH World Television Champion Silas Young and Beer City Bruiser told the world they would find a third man to take on the Kingdom for the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championships. The duo found the perfect partner in January 2018 when the massive Brian “Kingpin” Milonas emerged, forming a tag team with Bruiser known as The Bouncers and a trio with the two men from Milwaukee.
The trio has proved championship-contention-worthy in their bouts with teams like Kenny King and Coast 2 Coast and recently on ROH TV in the six-man gauntlet. In Philly, they get a shot to dethrone Bullet Club in their first defense!
