The Young Bucks Drop Recent Trademark Attempt Following Lawyer Advice

The Young Bucks decided against filing for a trademark to use a very famous song as a wrestling entrance due to some advice they received from a lawyer.

It was reported last week that The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) filed a trademark to for “The Wayward Sons.” The reason they did it is because they wanted to use the classic Kansas song “Carry On Wayward Son.”

On an episode of Being The Elite on Youtube from April 2021, The Young Bucks, who were the AEW Tag Team Champions at the time, noted they would love to enter to that classic song, but time constraints ruined their plans.

However, over the last week, The Young Bucks changed their mind and dropped the recent trademark filing.

It was reported by Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the lawyer handling the trademark filming felt that it was too close to some other trademarks filed in the category, so The Young Bucks decided against pursuing the trademark.

It has been over two months since Matt & Nick Jackson appeared on AEW television. The AEW Executive Vice Presidents have been suspended since they got into a backstage fight against CM Punk & Ace Steel after AEW All Out on September 4th. They were joined in the fight by Kenny Omega, who is also an AEW EVP, so the three men have been absent from AEW TV ever since.

Over the last few weeks, AEW has teased the return of The Young Bucks and Omega (collectively known as The Elite) with videos showing highlights of their careers. This past Wednesday on the November 16th episode of Dynamite, their next match was officially announced.

This coming Saturday, November 19th at the AEW Full Gear pay-per-view, The Elite trio will look to regain the AEW Trios Tag Team Titles when they face the champions Death Triangle (Pac, Rey Fenix & Penta).
