The Young Bucks never shy away from an opportunity to make an edgy comment. They were even involved in the WWE vs AEW interpromotional war after dragging the sneaker choices of NXT talents. Hit Row member Top Dolla responded with a diss track.
The Bucks now join with the group of wrestlers and fans who are piling on after AEW Rampage beat WWE SmackDown in the key 18-49 male demographic. The two shows went directly head-to-head for a half hour on October 15. SmackDown expectedly won the overall viewership contest, but AEW claims victory in the key demographic, which Tony Khan has pushed as the most important metric.
The Young Bucks retweeted a fan screenshot of their initial tweet. There now exists a fan-run Twitter that exists solely to monitor and record the Bucks bio section. Matt and Nick Jackson often use their Twitter bio to send vague messages teasing upcoming news.
Another one for the good guys
The next opportunity the shows will have to directly compete is October 29. SmackDown will once again be moved to FS1 to accommodate baseball on the main network. WWE has a 3-hour block of programming reserved on the channel, with an hour of Talking Smack after the main show.
While no plans have been made public to have SmackDown go against Rampage, it may be something that WWE decides to do. They might want to seek some redemption after losing the key demo that Tony Khan predicted AEW would win.
AEW will look to continue their momentum with Rampage this Friday night followed by another Saturday night Dynamite episode. Dynamite will return to its normal Wednesday timeslot the following week. WWE heads to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel on Thursday.
