The Young Bucks recently did an interview with Bleacher Report where they talked about how ROH and NJPW led to AEW and more. Here are some highlights-
On announcing AEW-
“Matt and I didn’t even want to announce the start of the company until closer to May”. We even thought of the idea of announcing the company at Double or Nothing, and Tony was completely against it. He wanted to announce it as soon as possible. Well, we can’t say no to him. As soon as we announced it in January, we were like, ‘We gotta start working and start getting shows ready, gotta find buildings, build a ring.’ Right away, we felt the pressure of getting everything going.”
How ROH and NJPW lead to AEW-
“You know what’s sad? New Japan and ROH could have easily come together and offered us the contracts they wanted, but they just didn’t do it. New Japan never saw the value in Matt and I. They never paid us good. We would have had to work with New Japan for another two decades to even get close to retiring, and the style they demand is backbreaking. Ring of Honor paid us a lot better than New Japan. We could have probably retired there, but we would have to work probably another decade with them.
We pitched it to both of them: Why don’t you guys get us a dual contract? And they just didn’t get it done. We would have easily stayed, and there would have never been an All Elite Wrestling if they would have met what we wanted, but it didn’t get done.”
Here is a new video from Being The Elite of SCU preparing for Double or Nothing. Which takes place on May 25th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
