Young Bucks are only the second team in pro wrestling history to accomplish this title trifecta

With last night’s victory in the main event of Ring of Honor (ROH)’s All-Star Extravaganza VIII, the Young Bucks now hold three of the most prestigious non-WWE tag championships in the business.

Defeating the Addiction and Motor City Machine Guns in Ladder War 6 made them the ROH World Tag titleholders. Matt & Nick Jackson were already crowned the best tag team in the prominent West Coast indie Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), and represent New Japan by holding the IWGP Junior* Heavyweight tag belts. That’s only the second time in history a pair’s held those three titles simultaneously.

The first team to do it?

Also, the Young Bucks.

Those boys are good.
