Current AEW Tag Team Champions and EVPs (Executive Vice Presidents) of the company both in character and in reality, The Young Bucks, have a busy weekend planned ahead of them to close out the month of May.

Before the brothers can return to their home in California on Wednesday, May 30th, the founding members of the Elite faction are tasked with teaming up with stablemates “Scapegoat” Jack Perry and AEW Continental Champion Kazuchika Okada to face off against bitter rivals in the tag team division, the decorated FTR (Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler) along with “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson and a returning Darby Allin in an “Anarchy In The Arena” match. This match stipulation is where anything goes all over the arena, at one of AEW’s premium Pay Per View events, Double or Nothing, live from Las Vegas. 

The duo has been inciting incidents leading to the big match every week on AEW Dynamite, the company's weekly show on TBS, including an attack on AEW CEO, General Manager, and Head Of Creative, Tony Khan, laying him out with a gut punch and signature assisted spike piledriver ironically named the “Tony Khan Driver”. Khan, a co-owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars with his father Shahid (or Shad) Khan, even took to wearing a neck brace at the NFL Draft a few months ago to sell the effects of the vicious attack in storyline. 

As the EVPs prepare for the big match ahead of them, they have made the time to promote and create advertisements airing in recent weeks showcasing their official collaboration with Reebok, bringing the Reebok Pump back into the world of Pro Wrestling, something that has not been noticeably seen since John Cena in the early 2000s. 

This marks the first official collaboration between Reebok and The Young Bucks/AEW.

The promos have featured fellow Elite member, Kazuchika Okada who will often chime in with one liners and have shown the shoes in detail. The sneakers are a classic Reebok Pump model but with official designs and logos attributed from The Young Bucks. The show features the signature Bucks logo on the bottom of the sneaker In white layered on a black sole.

The Tag champions will be wearing the Reebok collab for the first time in the ring on Sunday night in one third of the promoted “Triple Main Event” on the show alongside AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland (who also has ventured into the sneaker business) defending his title against Christian Cage, and the third marquee match Willow Nightingale defending her TBS championship against Mercedes Mone, who is making her in ring debut with the company and in ring return after a devastating ankle injury one year ago. 

The highly anticipated Young Bucks Reebok Pumps will be officially available for purchase exclusively via Champs Sports on May 27th, providing wrestling fans and sneakerheads alike with an exclusive opportunity to get their hands on the innovative collaboration.
