The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes made a surprise appearance on Friday night’s “Come Hell or High Water” independent show in Atlanta, GA. It’s the latest surprise appearance as the group prepares for next week’s ticket party in Las Vegas and “Double or Nothing” that is scheduled for late May.

During the main event, The Young Bucks walked out and asked Pentagon Jr. and Fenix if they would like to work for All Elite Wrestling. They shook hands and apparently an agreement was made. The news was later confirmed on Twitter by Chris Jericho.
Just heard that @PENTAELZEROM & @ReyFenixMx have signed exclusively w @AEWrestling! Everybody is ao excited..except me. Both are pale comparisons to my mentors #NegroCasas, #BestiaSalvaje and #EmilioCharles. So stay the hell away from me…
