Ahead of the match, the Young Bucks took to Twitter/X on April 2 to send a message to their opponents. They noted that they were pumped to share the ring with the duo. The Bucks wrote that even though their former friend Kazuchika Okada had been promoted to a higher position in the company and would not be rooting for them, he wanted to make it known that he wished them the best. The Bucks also stated that there was room for the Best Friends' productivity at work, but they knew they would crush it in defeat.

The message is as follows:

Hi team!

Been a busy one, but made it a point to get this out EOD.

We're super pumped to share the ring with Orange Cassidy & Trent Beretta (who are CC'd) Wednesday, on AEW Dynamite in the semi-finals of the Tag Team Championship Tournament!

Although their former friend Kazuchika Okada was promoted to a higher position in the company & will not be rooting for them, Okada wanted to make it publicly known that he wishes Orange & Trent nothing but the best & would happily take a convo offline with them!

Despite there being room for Orange & Trent's at work productivity, we know that they will crush it tomorrow night, in defeat! Now, let's have a killer show!

Warm regards,

Matthew Jackson & Nicholas Jackson


Okada was previously a member of CHAOS, which also includes Cassidy and Beretta, before he aligned with the Young Bucks.

The finals of the tournament will be held at AEW Dynasty on April 21.
