The Young Bucks are an American professional wrestling tag team, consisting of real life brothers Matt and Nick Massie (also known by their ring names Matt and Nick Jackson) from Southern California. They are currently working for various American promotions, most notably national promotion Ring of Honor (ROH), and independent promotions Dragon Gate USA (DGUSA) and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG).

They are also known for their time in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), where they performed under the ring names Max and Jeremy Buck and the tag team name Generation Me (occasionally abbreviated to GenMe). The Young Bucks also work in Japan for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).

Previous accolades include reigns as Chikara Campeones de Parejas, DGUSA's Open the United Gate Champions, NJPW's IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, ROH's World Tag Team Champions, record tying three reigns as PWG's World Tag Team Champions and being the only team to win PWG's annual Dynamite Duumvirate Tag Team Title Tournament on three separate occasions (2009, 2011 and 2013).

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Training and debut[edit]

In 2001, the family put a wrestling ring in their backyard and the three brothers taught themselves how to wrestle by impersonating what they saw on television.[7] At the age of 18 or 19 Matt began his professional wrestling training in La Mirada and City of Industry, California at the Revolution Pro Wrestling School called Rudos Dojo, training primarily under Ron Rivera (The American Wild Child), Disco Machine, Scorpio Sky and Super Dragon, among others.[6] Matt attended the school with his good friend Dustin Cutler and the two would teach what they learned to their friends back home.[6] Eventually Nick joined his brother and attended a few sessions at the school.[6] Matt, Nick and Dustin would be involved in their very first professional match at an Alternative Wrestling Show/C4/Revolution Pro joint event that was held on August 8, 2004. Matt worked as Fluffy the Dog, Dustin dressed as a hillbilly and Nick was a high flying referee wearing a Santo mask. Soon after, Matt and Nick would wrestle various times for Revolution Pro and Revolution X (Rev Pro's darker counterpart) in chicken costumes, under the team name "Los Gallineros".[6]

High Risk Wrestling (2004–present)[edit]

In October 2004, with the help of his family, Matt opened up his very own independent wrestling company called High Risk Wrestling.[6] Matt would originally be the head owner of HRW, but would have help from his brothers Nick, Malalchi and good friend Dustin Cutler - these three would eventually take over ownership years later. Brandon Cutler and Sonny Samson would also play a big part in HRWs shows both behind the scenes and in the ring. The company would run shows twice a month and helped Matt and Nick learn their craft.[6] High Risk Wrestling would go on to run several successful shows in Hesperia, Victorville and Upland, California. The most notable High Risk Wrestling event "Highway 2 Hell" took place on August 4, 2007, in Hesperia. In the main event of the show Matt and Nick teamed up with Marty Jannetty ín a six man tag, where they defeated Joey Ryan, Karl Anderson and Diablo.[8][9] This was the day Matt and Nick originally met Marty Jannetty, who would become a trainer and a good friend of the two.

On February 26, 2005 at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA for Full Contact Wrestling, Matt and Nick were called the "Young Bucks" for the very first time. Originally, Matt was wrestling under the name "Mr. Instant Replay", while Nick was called "Slick Nick". Joey Munoz, the booker at the time, did not know the names of the characters that Matt and Nick were using at the time so wrote down a temporary name on the card. That night Mr. Instant Replay and Slick Nick, the Young Bucks were defeated by the Kaos and Mongol, the Santino Brothers. The name "Young Bucks" has been around ever since that day. "Jackson" was simply given to Matt and Nick by the National Wrestling Alliance during the time NWA Showcase appeared on Maverick Television. Matt and Nick have used that last name ever since.

With the help of HRW, Matt and Nick would eventually land spots in several popular companies in Southern California. Eventually they also gained experience working in front of a camera doing television tapings for the National Wrestling Alliance starting in 2006. The Young Bucks would film their very first matches for the NWA on Maverick Television on November 7, 2006, when they were defeated by Karl Anderson and Joey Ryan. The NWA would also be responsible for the Young Bucks wrestling debut in such states as Texas, Nevada, Rhode Island and New Jersey. They currently appear regularly on NWA Showcase which can now be seen on Colours TV.

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla[edit]

The Young Bucks would debut for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla on June 10, 2007, in Burbank, CA at Roger Dorn Night, losing to Arrogance (Chris Bosh and Scott Lost).[10] On August 31, 2007, in Burbank, CA, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla held the first night of the 2007 Battle of Los Angeles tournament, where The Young Bucks picked up their first tag team victory in PWG by defeating Phoenix Star and Zokre, Los Luchas.[11] At the show Matt and Nick would meet Dragon Gate wrestler Cima and Dragon Gate's American talent agent Satoshi Oji for the first time, both of whom were impressed by the brothers' performance. On January 5, 2008, The Young Bucks faced prominent Dragon Gate team Muscle Outlaw'z (Naruki Doi and Masato Yoshino) at All Star Weekend 6 - Night 1 in a losing, yet impressive effort.[12] The next night, they would lose to The Dynasty (Scott Lost and Joey Ryan).[13] At the following show, on January 27, the Young Bucks received their first shot at the PWG World Tag Team Championship, but were once again defeated by the Dynasty.[14] During the next two months the Young Bucks participated in the 2008 DDT4 qualifier series, where they lost to T.J. Perkins and Hook Bomberry, defeated Ronin and Scorpio Sky and drew with Los Luchas, before losing a deciding four-way elimination match to Los Luchas, who then advanced to the tournament itself.[14][15][16][17] Soon after, The Young Bucks would go out on their first Dragon Gate tour. Upon their return from Dragon Gate, the Young Bucks were finally able to defeat the Dynasty on July 6, 2008, at Life During Wartime, PWG's fifth anniversary show, in a three-way match, which also included KAZMA and MIYAWAKI.[18]

World Tag Team Championship reign (2008–2010)[edit]

At the following show, All Star Weekend 7 - Night Two on August 31, 2008, Matt and Nick defeated The Age of the Fall of Jimmy Jacobs and Tyler Black to become to the new PWG World Tag Team Champions.[19] One of The Young Bucks' biggest accomplishments in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla came at the annual DDT4 tag team tournament on May 22, 2009, in Reseda, CA, when they defended the titles three times in one night. They defeated Dustin and Brandon Cutler in the first round, Kenny Omega and Chuck Taylor in the second round and the Hybrid Dolphins (Bryan Danielson and Roderick Strong) in the final round to win the tournament.[20] At that same event their younger brother Malachi made his PWG debut, losing to Phoenix Star.[20] On June 1, 2009, they became the longest reigning PWG World Tag Team Champions in history, breaking the record set by Arrogance. Around that time, after the Young Bucks started touring the World, the PWG crowds started turning on them.[7] On July 31, 2009, at Threemendous II, PWG's sixth anniversary show, the Young Bucks suffered their first loss in the company in sixteen months, losing a non-title match to the re-united 2 Skinny Black Guys (Human Tornado and El Generico).[21] Despite their win and the Young Bucks' wishes, Tornado and Generico never received their rematch for the titles as the following month they lost the number one contendership to The Men of Low Moral Fiber (Kenny Omega and Chuck Taylor), whom the Young Bucks would defeat for the titles on October 4 in a rematch of their DDT4 semifinal match.[22][23][24]

On November 21 during the second night of the 2009 Battle of Los Angeles The Young Bucks retained their title over Kevin Steen and El Generico and afterwards turned heel by aligning themselves with Brian Kendrick and attacking the new PWG World Champion Kenny Omega.[25][26] On January 30, 2010, at Kurt Russellmania, the first PWG show since the Bucks had signed contracts with TNA Wrestling, Matt and Nick announced that from now on they would be known by their TNA names, Max and Jeremy of Generation Me. Then they decided that Brian Kendrick didn't fit in with them and turned on him, only for him to be saved by his old tag team partner Paul London. Later in the night, the team of London and Kendrick defeated Generation Me in a non-title match.[27] Despite the announcement made by the Young Bucks, PWG still continues to refer to them under their original team and singles names.[4] On February 27, 2010, at As the Worm Turns, Matt and Nick tied the PWG record set by the team of Super Dragon and Davey Richards by making their twelfth title defense, after successfully defending the titles against the 2 Skinny Black Guys of Low Moral Fiber (Chuck Taylor and El Generico).[28] On April 10 the Young Bucks made PWG history by making their thirteenth successful title defense against the Briscoe Brothers (Jay and Mark).[29] On May 9 the Young Bucks entered the 2010 DDT4 tournament and were for the second year in a row set to defend the Tag Team Championship three times in one night. The Bucks defeated Johnny Goodtime and Jerome Robinson in the first round and the Cutler Brothers in the semifinals of the tournament. However, in the finals of the tournament El Generico and Paul London, the team known collectively as ¡Peligro Abejas!, defeated the Young Bucks to not only win the tournament, but also the PWG World Tag Team Championship, ending the Bucks' reign at 616 days.[30] During the final match Nick was knocked unconscious and suffered a concussion, but was able to finish the match.[31]

Various feuds (2010–2012)[edit]

On July 30, at PWG's seventh anniversary show, the Bucks received a rematch for the World Tag Team titles in the first ever tag team Guerrilla Warfare match, a three–way match, also involving the Cutler Brothers, where ¡Peligro Abejas! ended up retaining the Championship.[32] In the first round of the 2010 Battle of Los Angeles Matt and Nick were paired up against each other, but instead of wrestling the match, they got themselves disqualified by superkicking referee Rick Knox.[33] Afterwards the Cutler Brothers challenged the Young Bucks to a match, in which they finally managed to defeat their nemesis tag team.[33] On March 4, 2011, the Young Bucks entered the 2011 DDT4 tournament, which was this time used to determine new number one contenders to the ¡Peligro Abejas!. In their first round match the Young Bucks defeated Brandon Gatson and Willie Mack. Later in the evening they defeated The American Wolves (Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards) in the semifinals and finally the Nightmare Violence Connection (Akira Tozawa and Kevin Steen) in the finals to win their second DDT4 tournament and earn another shot at El Generico and Paul London.[34] The Young Bucks received their shot on April 9, 2011, when they defeated El Generico and Ricochet, who filled in for Paul London who was unable to appear at the event, to regain the PWG World Tag Team Championship.[35] On May 27, during the first night of All Star Weekend 8, The Young Bucks made the first successful defense of their second title reign, defeating the RockNES Monsters (Johnny Goodtime and Johnny Yuma).[36] The following night, The Young Bucks defeated Austin Aries and Roderick Strong to retain the title.[37] On August 20, The Young Bucks defeated the Kings of Wrestling (Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli) in an unadvertised match to retain the PWG World Tag Team Championship.[38] The Young Bucks made their next title defense on September 10, defeating the Dynasty (Joey Ryan and Scorpio Sky).[39] On October 22, The Young Bucks made their fifth successful title defense by defeating Future Shock (Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly), before interfering in the main event and costing Kevin Steen the PWG World Championship in his ladder match with El Generico.

Following their title loss, The Young Bucks started a rivalry with the Super Smash Bros.

Max and Jeremy laid claim to the TNA World Tag Team Championship, claiming that the champions wouldn't be able to defend them for 30 days, due to Shelley's injury, before stealing Sabin's title belt.[143][144] Shelley would however make his return two weeks later and promised Generation Me a rematch for the World Tag Team Championship at Bound for Glory.[145] At the pay–per–view the Motor City Machine Guns defeated Generation Me to retain the TNA World Tag Team Championship.[146] The following month Generation Me received a new fan in Tara.[147] After Jeremy pinned Sabin in an eight person tag team match, where Generation Me teamed with Robbie E and Cookie and the Motor City Machine Guns with Jay Lethal and Velvet Sky, on the November 18 edition of Impact!, the Motor City Machine Guns challenged Generation Me to an Empty Arena match.[147] The match took place later that same night on Reaction with the Motor City Machine Guns coming out victorious.[148] On December 5 at Final Resolution Generation Me challenged the Motor City Machine Guns for the World Tag Team Championship in a Full Metal Mayhem match, but were once again unsuccessful in dethroning the defending champions.[149] On December 21 Matt announced that he and his brother had agreed to one-year contract extensions with TNA.[150][151] The following month they signed new two–year contracts.[152]

X Division and release (2011)[edit]

On the January 27 edition of Impact! TNA started a tournament to determine a new number one contender for X Division Champion Kazarian. In the first match of the tournament, Max Buck defeated Amazing Red and Chris Sabin in a three–way match to advance to the finals at Against All Odds.[153] The following week Jeremy defeated Douglas Williams and Jay Lethal in another three–way match to also advance to the finals.[154] However, both Max and Jeremy were forced to miss the finals of the tournament at Against All Odds, after failing to get to Florida due to travel issues.[155][156] The following month at Victory Road, both Max and Jeremy received their shot at the X Division Championship, held by Kazarian, in an Ultimate X match, which also included Robbie E. Prior to the match, the brothers teased dissension, with Max claiming that their goal was to make him the X Division Champion. At the end of the match Jeremy and Max finally started fighting amongst themselves, but in the end both of them failed in their attempt to win the X Division Championship, as Kazarian emerged victorious to successfully retain the title.[157] At the March 15 tapings of Xplosion, the Bucks faced each other in a singles match for the first time in TNA, with Max picking up the win.[158] Max and Jeremy faced each other in a rematch on the March 31 edition of Impact!, where Max was once again victorious.[159] On the April 7 edition of Impact!, Generation Me teamed with Robbie E in a six man tag team match, where they faced Brian Kendrick, Chris Sabin and Suicide. At the end of the match, Max, thinking Jeremy was trying to steal the spotlight from him, turned on his brother, crotching him at the top tope, before dropping him to the mat with a rope hung DDT. After Kendrick had pinned Jeremy for the win, Max removed his Generation Me armband and threw it at his brother.[160] On April 17 at Lockdown, Max defeated seven other men, including Jeremy, in an Xscape match to become the number one contender to Kazarian's X Division Championship.[161] On the May 5 edition of Impact!, Generation Me, seemingly once again on the same page as faces, came together with Amazing Red and Brian Kendrick to fight for X Division's future, after the legitimate firing of Jay Lethal.[162] On May 15 at Sacrifice, Max failed in his attempt to win the X Division Championship from Kazarian.[163] At the all X Division pay-per-view, Destination X on July 10, Generation Me was defeated by the team of Eric Young and Shark Boy.[164] This would end up being their last match in TNA as the following day Matt announced that he and his brother had requested their release from their contracts with the promotion.[165] Matt and Nick later revealed that the request stemmed from monetary issues, while also venting their frustrations with TNA's booking, noting the storyline with Tara, which went nowhere, and the quickly aborted feud between the brothers.[166]

Return (2013)[edit]

On March 18, 2013, Generation Me returned to TNA to take part in the tapings of the Tag Team Tournament One Night Only pay-per-view. After defeating Petey Williams and Sonjay Dutt in the first round, they were eliminated from the tournament in the second round by Team 3D (Bully Ray and Devon).[167] At the tapings of the following day's Hardcore Justice 2 pay-per-view, Generation Me was defeated in a ladder match by Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels and Kazarian).[168]

The Young Bucks after winning the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship on November 9, 2013.

On October 15, 2013, New Japan Pro Wrestling announced that The Young Bucks would be making their debuts for the promotion in the 2013 Super Jr. Tag Tournament, which starts October 25.[169] In their debut, The Young Bucks would represent the heel foreigner stable Bullet Club.[170] In their debut match for the promotion, The Young Bucks defeated fellow Americans Baretta and Brian Kendrick, thanks to a pre-match assault by the rest of Bullet Club, to advance to the semifinals of the Super Jr. Tag Tournament.[171][172] During the next two weeks, New Japan held seven smaller shows, with The Young Bucks main eventing every one of them, teaming with Bullet Club stablemate Karl Anderson in six-man tag team matches against the IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada and members of his Chaos stable.[173][174][175][176][177][178][179] The Young Bucks suffered their first loss in the promotion on October 30, when they and Anderson were defeated by Gedo, Jado and Okada, who pinned Nick for the win.[175] On November 6, The Young Bucks first defeated Gedo and Jado in the semifinals and then another Chaos team, the Forever Hooligans, in the finals to win the 2013 Super Jr. Tag Tournament.[180][181] As a result of their win, The Young Bucks received a shot at the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship and on November 9 at Power Struggle, defeated Suzukigun (Taichi and Taka Michinoku) to become the new champions.[182][183] The Young Bucks returned to New Japan on January 4, 2014, at Wrestle Kingdom 8 in Tokyo Dome, where they made their first successful title defense in a four-way match against the Forever Hooligans, Suzukigun and Time Splitters (Alex Shelley and Kushida).[184][185] The Young Bucks made their second successful title defense on February 11 at The New Beginning in Osaka against the Time Splitters.[186] Towards the end of the match, Matt legitimately broke his hand.[187] Later that same event, Nick confronted and challenged IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Kota Ibushi.[186] Nick received his title shot on April 3, but was defeated by Ibushi.[188] Three days later at Invasion Attack 2014, The Young Bucks successfully defended the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship against Ibushi and El Desperado.[189][190] On May 3 at Wrestling Dontaku 2014, The Young Bucks made their fourth successful title defense against the Forever Hooligans.[191][192] The Young Bucks made their fifth successful defense on May 10 during the NJPW and ROH co-produced Global Wars event in Toronto, defeating Forever Hooligans and Time Splitters in a three-way match.[193] From May 30 to June 6, The Young Bucks took part in the 2014 Best of the Super Juniors tournament, where they wrestled in separate blocks. They both finished with a record of four wins and three losses, narrowly missing advancement to the semifinals.[194][195] As a result of losing to Alex Shelley and Kushida during the tournament,[194] The Young Bucks and Time Splitters faced off in another IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship match on June 21 at Dominion 6.21, where The Young Bucks' seven-month reign came to an end.[196][197]

Personal lives[edit]

The Massies were both born in Montebello, California. Matt was born Matthew Ronjon Massie on March 13, 1985[198] and Nick was born Nicholas Lee Massie on July 28, 1989.[199] Their parents are Joyce and Matthew Massie Sr. They have an older sister Donajoi Crystal (born October 3, 1982)[200] and a younger brother Malachi Marcus (born November 14, 1990),[201] who was also a professional wrestler before retiring in 2010. Matt and Nick were born and raised in a Christian family, living in Rancho Cucamonga, California.[citation needed] They stayed there for nearly 18 years before moving to Hesperia, California, where they reside to this day.[citation needed] Matt married his girlfriend of five years, Dana, on November 1, 2008. Nick married his longtime girlfriend Ellen Montoya on April 3, 2011.[citation needed]

Upon the Massies' departure from TNA, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Rob Van Dam singled them out as two younger wrestlers he felt had acted disrespectfully towards him, a claim both of the brothers later refuted.[202] After their WWE tryout on August 15, 2011, Van Dam's friend and WWE announcer Booker T made similar accusations towards the brothers.[203]
