How close did Triple H come to signing The Young Bucks? More close than you think as the wife of fellow Buck Matt Jackson and fellow AEW employee, Dana Massie recently guested on the Tradecraft podcast. During the podcast, Massie who is All Elite Wrestling’s Chief Marketing & Merchandising Officer explained how Triple H texted Matt, which led to a meeting and believing the famed tag team would be signing in WWE. These Triple H WrestleMania match rumors recently leaked.
“We were on a family vacation in Hawaii and we had just landed when Matt got a text from Hunter and he was like, ‘Do you have some time to talk?’ ‘I’m on vacation with my family.’ ‘I just need 20 minutes. Whenever you’re available, give me a call.’ I remember Matt hung up — it ended up not being 20 minutes, it was much longer than that — he looks at me and he’s like, ‘I think we’re going to WWE.’ ‘I never thought I’d hear those words come out of your mouth, but okay.’ Things made sense. After having the conversations he did, it didn’t sound as horrible as we expected it to be. I had always heard about how many days on the road there are and he wouldn’t be at home. Family is number one. That was a concern he brought up to Hunter and he was wonderful. Anytime we had — I was part of the conversation because I handle the business for Matt and Nick — anything we were worried about, he would reassure us and have an answer right away. We were comfortable with it.”
