The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes are tearing it up on the indie wrestling scene at this point. All In is a huge success and it might only be a matter of time before we get an idea about what they might do when it comes to a possible big money deal from WWE.
As Daniel Bryan’s WWE contract slowly expires, he’s expected to re-sign another deal. But he couldn’t help but send out a glowing review of Cody and The Bucks during an upcoming interview with Arash Markazi from ESPN.
The article isn’t set to run until Saturday, but Markazi sent out a little preview because he couldn’t help it.
“The independent scene is incredible now. I’m so proud of Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks with their sold out show. Take The Young Bucks, for example. They have built themselves up. When you look at the way New Japan uses them, they don’t treat them as main event guys. Rings Of Honor has started treating them as main event guys but they built themselves up through their YouTube channel and through other stuff and just going out there and performing at a certain level and understanding the audience wants more than anyone else.
“Look at someone like Kenny Omega, who goes out there an just blows your mind. My mind explodes when I watch Kenny Omega out there doing the stuff that he’s doing. I also love watching Zack Sabre Jr. I was very proud of the independent stuff that I did before I got to WWE because it was highly technical and there was a lot of mat based stuff.”
“You go to a WWE show and you see Bullet Club shirts or you see Young Bucks shirts or you go to a Ring Of Honor show and you see a Daniel Bryan shirt. Now there’s this great mix of fans who are just watching everything and as somebody who loves wrestling in every shape that’s awesome.”
This is a pretty glowing endorsement from D-Bry and it really makes us excited about the idea of seeing him possible mix it up with Matt and Nick Jackson or Kenny Omega in the future. If Daniel wrestles Cody, it might not be in a WWE ring, but then again you never know when you’re talking about pro wrestling.
I have a feature on @WWEDanielBryan going up tomorrow on ESPN but in the meantime I thought @CodyRhodes, @MattJackson13, @NickJacksonYB, @KennyOmegamanX and @zacksabrejr would appreciate what Bryan had to say about them. pic.twitter.com/FvTbsYuJ7p
