3. The Young Bucks & Adam Cole vs. Ricochet, Will Ospreay & Matt Sydal – PWG Battle of Los Angeles 2016
If this list was longer you can rest assured that more Pro Wrestling Guerrilla matches would be on it. With that being said, this one is just too good to leave off the list. On Night Two of the 2016 Battle of Los Angeles, Bullet Club members Adam Cole and the Young Bucks took on the aerial team of Will Ospreay, Ricochet, and Matt Sydal.
Spot-fest matches are not for everyone so if you are not a fan of them feel free to skip to the next entry. However, this one might turn you into a fan just through how impressive it is. This is 20 minutes of non-stop moves happening at a break-neck pace. PWG matches are more difficult to find but paying full price for the DVD is very much worth it.
2. The Young Bucks vs. The Golden Lovers – NJPW Strong Style Evolved 2018
The top two matches on this list could switch spots if you so choose. In 2018, the two best teams in the world were the Young Bucks and the Golden Lovers. At Strong Style Evolved, they had their one and only match together. If you don’t think any of these four men can tell a story with any psychology watch this match. If you still don’t you’re lying to yourself.
The Young Bucks were hurt by Omega leaving Bullet Club for Kota Ibushi and those feelings boiled over into this match. Omega was torn between his two teams but Matt Jackson needed Omega to fight him. The drama involved in this was off the charts and that doesn’t even take into account how talented these four men are. This is one of the all-time classic tag team matches in wrestling and it should quiet some of the critics of both teams.
1. The Young Bucks vs. Kenny Omega & Hangman Page – AEW Revolution
If the last entry was one of the all-time classics, this match might be the best tag team match ever. I’m not alone in thinking that either. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, this was the best storyline in wrestling. The Young Bucks and Hangman Page were at each other’s throats after years of friendship and Kenny Omega was caught in between.
The interactions between all four men were completely different and they had a hell of a fight, telling one hell of a story. Everyone was waiting to see who was going to turn on who first but it didn’t happen in this match. The crowd was buzzing afterward as anything could happen but eventually, Page and Omega left the ring together as champions and lived to fight another day.
If the last match had drama, this match deserved an award for storytelling. If you missed it, you are doing yourself a disservice.
