Details on WWE deal The Young Bucks rejected

WWE definitely wanted The Young Bucks to sign with the company and were willing to make great offers to make that happen. However, The Young Bucks turned them down and started All Elite Wrestling instead. They reportedly had a solid deal offered to them by WWE.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Triple H offered The Young Bucks money that was “roughly the same as WWE Champion AJ Styles”, which is nothing to sneeze at. However, there was more to the deal that made them reject it.

It was also reported that WWE had plans of making Being The Elite a weekly show on the WWE Network. WWE also gave The Young Bucks an interesting option in the deal that was described as one WWE had never conceded on before.

According to the report, WWE offered Nick and Matt Jackson a six-month window at the beginning of their contracts. During that time, they could pull out from the contracts if they were unhappy with how they were being used. WWE might have had big plans for The Young Bucks if they had signed with the company.

In the end, they went for All Elite Wrestling. Perhaps the six months taken by The Young Bucks to realize they did not like working with WWE would have meant that they would be too late in joining All Elite Wrestling as well.

    Yes and we all hope as wrestling fan AWE works out. An the dirt sheet is going to be running wild until AWE first show.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Absolutely. These guys have balls for even trying it.

    I think that even they know the risks going in, that it might not work out.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I do think it a lot harder to start a new wrestling company today. WWE is becoming more global and it looks like WWE is going to be pushing more of the NXT guys in 2019. Plus when Smackdown moves to Fox you might see a way different Smackdown.

  • Keith Learmonth

    If AEW fails, I’d say that Vince is probably going to buy it out, along with all contracts.

  • Steven Stevens

    Who the f are the Young Bucks? Look like that would have been Billy Kidman’s fluffers. Do neck beards really get aroused by them?

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    The Dirt sheet don’t know jack when it comes to the Young Bucks and the WWE. The Young Bucks maybe with AWE for now but a year from now they maybe signing real fast. The same with Cody Rhodes who you know will someday be back in the WWE.
