The Young Bucks have opened up about the differences of opinion before signing new AEW deals.
Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, and Adam Page recently stuck to the pact that helped form AEW once again as they have stuck together and signed new deals with the company. The length of the deals is unknown but they are believed to be multi-year contracts that will see Omega and The Bucks retain their EVP titles.
One report from Dave Meltzer suggested the group had gone back and forth over where their future lay and now speaking to Swerve Strickland on the Swerve City podcast, Matt and Nick Jackson have opened up even more about choosing to remain All Elite.
What did The Young Bucks say about staying in AEW?
Matt Jackson discussed the group’s decision to stay together and noted that they didn’t agree all the time and indicated that the events of the last year had weighed on their minds before choosing to stay:
“I don’t read any of it, but I know [people] are thinking oh, how surprising The Elite re-signed. Bro, we didn’t even know if we were going to re-sign…we all negotiated together as a team.
“The votes did not line up every time. There were a lot of emotions in the last year, as the world knows, so one day this person’s voting to leave, this person’s voting to go. We weren’t even on the same page the whole time.”
Nick Jackson also noted that he had to talk his older brother Matt out of possibly retiring than going to work elsewhere but also noted that WWE’s recent success is good for them as well:
“WWE helps us being hot because wrestling in general is hot now.”
That heat has led to The Young Bucks signing what Nick Jackson described as an “NBA-level contract” to remain in the company.
The Young Bucks have indicated that they are focused once again on the tag team division in AEW and will take on The Hardys on the 9th of August edition of Dynamite. Bigger things await the Jackson brothers, however, after FTR challenged them to a huge showdown at All In.
