Another accolade for The Young Bucks.
Pro Wrestling Illustrated announced that The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) have earned the number one spot in the annual Tag Team 50 rankings.
Tag teams were evaluated between October 1, 2020 and September 30, 2021. The criteria used for rankings included momentum, win record, chemistry, creativity, overall activity, and “it” factor.
The Young Bucks won the AEW Tag Team Titles during that time, made nine successful title defenses, and had well-received matches against the likes of Eddie Kingston & Jon Moxley, Lucha Bros, Santana & Ortiz, FTR, and more.
The Young Bucks finished 11th in 2020, which saw FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) take the top spot.
