The “Being The Elite” YouTube show is back and they made sure to feature some memorable chants from their in-ring return at Full Gear.
At AEW Full Gear, The Elite trio of The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) and Kenny Omega challenged the Death Triangle trio of Pac, Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero Miedo for the Trios Tag Team Championships.
It was a very competitive matchup as The Elite tried to win back the titles that they won at All Out and had to relinquish after getting into a backstage fight that led to their suspension from AEW TV for over two months. However, Pac handed Fenix a hammer to use in the match, which Fenix did as he hit Omega in the head (the referee didn’t see it, of course) and got the pinfall win.
On Monday, the first episode of The Young Bucks’ popular YouTube show “Being The Elite” returned. While the video featured a lot of backstage clips from Full Gear, what was most interesting is that they made a point to leave in a particular chant from Full Gear.
During the Trios Tag Team Title match, fans chanted “F**k CM Punk” loudly. The reason for that is because The Elite trio got into a backstage fight with CM Punk and his friend/former AEW Producer Ace Steel. The fight saw Nick Jackson receive a black eye after Steel threw a chair while Steel also bit Omega during the melee. There have been reports that AEW might do a contract buyout with Punk to prevent him from ever working for AEW. The fans at Full Gear knew the story since it has been a major topic for over two months.
While they were showing match highlights on Being The Elite, they played a song from the group NEFFEX with these lyrics.
“I don’t ever slow up
No I don’t take sh*t
I got no love
For the fakeness
If you wanna play tough
And wanna hate this
I’ll always show up
And make a statement”
Based on those lyrics, some people might believe it’s a shot at CM Punk. It didn’t end there because as the video continued, they stopped the music to emphasize the “F**k CM Punk” chants as the fans chanted it for about ten seconds.
On the newest ‘Being The Elite’ episode they stopped the music over the match to highlight the “Fuck CM Punk” chants 💀💀💀
