The hottest wrestlers of the independent circuit, IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks would become free agents by January, 2019. Omega’s contract with NJPW is up in late January while The Young Bucks’ deal is up by the end of this year. This has led pro-wrestling fans speculate whether Omega and The Young Bucks would make their much-awaited move to WWE and materialize the potential dream match scenarios in the company.
However, a certain portion of the huge fanbase doesn’t seem to be thrilled with the idea of The Elite heading to WWE. Many fans don’t want to see either Omega or The Young Bucks sign with Vince McMahon’s WWE. It all began with the following tweet from WWE superfan Rachereen Dream.

This was followed up by a tweet from another Twitter user, The Science Behind Hiccups that read,
“I know you’re not implying you’d like to see them all in the WWE. Seriously? So they could be ruined and tarnished and have WWE’s corporate stench on them? They’re perfectly fine changing the wrestling world in NJPW, ROH and ALL_IN.”
WWE Champion AJ Styles came across the tweet and responded:
Ouch. Getting gored seven times over by the phenomenal one himself. pic.twitter.com/FXmqI0pEbF

It will be interesting to see what the pro-wrestling business has in store for The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega in the near future.
