Despite The Young Bucks experiencing a significant defeat at AEW Revolution last week, recent developments suggest a notable shift in the dynamics within the realm of All Elite Wrestling moving forward. After all, Kazuchika Okada made his AEW debut and aligned himself with The Elite. Afterwards, The Young Bucks mimicked Triple H’s signature finger-pointing pose with Okada to welcome him to AEW.

During this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Matthew and Nicholas Jackson delivered on their promise of a game-changing announcement. Following their reflections on their recent loss to Sting and Darby Allin at AEW Revolution, where they bid farewell to The Icon in a losing effort, the brothers declared their intention to once again pursue the AEW tag titles.

Taking a surprising turn, they then meted out severe consequences for their Elite faction comrades, Adam Page and Kenny Omega. The situation escalated when AEW Triple Crown champion Eddie Kingston confronted the AEW EVPs, resulting in a heated brawl.

In a stunning twist, former NJPW star Kazuchika Okada made his highly anticipated AEW debut. While it initially seemed like he came to Eddie Kingston’s aid, Okada shocked everyone by delivering a Rainmaker to Kingston and pledging allegiance to The Bucks.


The Young Bucks capitalized on Twitter to create excitement about Kazuchika Okada’s debut. In their post, they heralded Okada as the most significant signing in AEW history. Accompanying their statement was a photo featuring them shaking hands with Okada and playfully pointing at him, seemingly mimicking the iconic finger-pointing pictures long associated with Triple H.

‘The biggest signing in @AEW history! Welcome to the team @rainmakerXokada ! #theELITE’

It remains to be seen how AEW will book Kazuchika Okada in the coming weeks, as fans are truly excited about what Tony Khan’s company can accomplish with The Rainmaker in many ways.
