The Young Bucks are truly geniuses as far as the business side of pro wrestling is concerned because they continue to sell a lot of merchandise. They have cashed in on a variety of incidents over the years, especially involving WWE. Now it seems more details have been given regarding their contract status.
They are also known for their expensive sneaker collection and recently decided to take a hilarious shot at the NXT roster for their choice of sneakers. Due to this they even caused quite a stir due to them dragging the entire NXT locker room.
It was recently said that The Young Bucks signed a 5-year contract extension with AEW, meaning that they would stick with the company till 2026 at least. However, it seems that might not be the case.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the Young Bucks’ current deal will expire on December 31st, 2023 after the two signed a brand new contract with AEW at the beginning of 2019. Other top talent like Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, Cody and Brandi Rhodes are also in this boat, so Khan will have to elect to take on that two-year extension.
Regarding the Young Bucks deal, the first contract both signed which started on January 1, 2019, which was a three-year deal, ending on December 31, 2021. The original contract also gave Tony Khan the option for two more years, which included a raise both of those years, which he picked up, so the new deal is through December 31, 2023. Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes, Brandi Rhodes, Adam Page and Chris Jericho would also fall into that category since they were the original group that started the company with the three year contracts and the option years that Khan had the right to pick up based on the original deal. I would expect all will be renewed but factually can’t confirm anything past many of them have
The Young Bucks were also not cleared to wrestle after AEW Full Gear. We will have to wait and see when they will be able to compete inside the squared circle again and who they will feud with next.
