The Young Bucks are without a doubt in a league of their own when it comes to the business aspect of the industry. However, their polarizing personalities and approach to wrestling are not to everyone’s taste, and fans have learned to accept this. Matt and Nick Jackson, who co-founded AEW with Tony Khan in 2019, are not only two of the promotion’s top stars but also serve as its Executive Vice Presidents. That being said, due to their current contact status, it seems the two decided to tease going to WWE.
As reported by Sean Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, The Young Bucks are in discussions with the company in order to sign new contracts and stick with AEW for a longer time.
However, the Bucks are not close to signing a deal with AEW and their contracts will expire at the end of this year. They even confirmed this fact with one of their previous Twitter bios.
Less than a year left. Where does the time go?
Speculation about The Young Bucks leaving AEW and joining WWE has been fueled by the wording of their most recent Twitter bio, which was a major reference to their appearance in WWE in the past.
It was all a dream.
The Young Bucks’ latest Twitter bio could be a reference to an episode of their web series, Being The Elite, called “Was It All A Dream?!” that aired in July 2016. The episode features Matt Jackson having a “nightmare” about working as an extra for WWE, which he did for two SmackDown tapings back in 2008. This is just the kind of inside reference that the Jackson Brothers would drop for their fans if they wanted to avoid raising too many alarms.
It is accurate to say that AEW’s roster is already overflowing with an impressive lineup of skilled wrestlers, and retaining The Young Bucks is undoubtedly a priority for the company. Whether or not The Young Bucks will choose to re-sign with AEW remains to be seen, and we will have to wait for any official announcements or developments.
