Top AEW Team Potentially Adopting ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ As New Entrance Theme
A major tag team in AEW is said to be debuting a new entrance theme, that being Kansas’ Carry On Wayward Son.
Having been absent from All Elite Wrestling since All Out, The Young Bucks – as well as their Elite partner Kenny Omega – are seemingly on their way back to the Tony Khan-helmed organisation. The latest teaser video hyping their return teased that they’d be appearing at Full Gear on November 19, perhaps challenging Death Triangle for the AEW World Trios Championships.
When they do eventually make their anticipated comeback, they could be doing so with some new entrance music. Per Dave Meltzer in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the brothers Jackson have filed a trademark for ‘The Wayward Sons’. This, as it says on the tin, indicates that they may be about to return to Kansas’ Carry On Wayward Son.
This follows on from a Being The Elite broadcast from April 2021, featuring footage from AEW’s house show debut The House Always Wins. There, the then-AEW World Tag Team Champions noted that in an ideal scenario, they’d be entering to the hit song, but time constraints ruined their plans. They lost that night, teaming with Kenny Omega, Konosuke Takeshita, and Michael Nakazawa.
Should the Bucks obtain the copyright rights to use the song on televised programming, it would mark the latest example of AEW performers having licensed tracks. The likes of Orange Cassidy, ‘Jungle Boy’ Jack Perry, and Jon Moxley have all received this treatment. They currently enter to Jefferson Starship’s Jane, Baltimora’s Tarzan Boy, and X’s Wild Thing, respectively.
