The Young Bucks Reveal They Almost Joined WWE Before Signing With AEW, Update On CM Punk



The Young Bucks have been the driving force behind All Elite Wrestling over the past few months as their Executive Vice Presidents, but there was a time when they were on WWE’s radar and the two men were willing to listen to offers from the company.

Matt and Nick Jackson are seen as one of the best tag teams in the world, so it makes sense that WWE came knocking a few years ago but The Young Bucks turned them down.

As part of a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, the two stars revealed just how close they came to signing with Vince McMahon’s billion-dollar company.

We talked to them endlessly. At one point, I remember me, Nick and Kenny were in a room because all of our deals were up at the same time. We got off the phone one day and we looked at each other and we said ‘I think we’re all going to WWE.’ It was that close. Tony came to us at the right time and he made the right offer. I’m not talking financially, I’m talking ‘hey, you guys can run this thing’ and ‘I want you guys to hire your people.’ It’s like someone saying ‘I want you to make a movie and you can hire all the cameramen. You can hire all the writers, all your friends to be with you.’ He gave us the keys to this thing. You can’t say no to this.”

One thing that took out of the race for going to WWE was the amount of dates that they wanted us to do. They even offered us a limited schedule. We have young families. Even with the limited schedule, it was like ‘God, I can’t imagine being home [just] for 2 days for my kids,’”

When asked about CM Punk joining AEW, the brothers said that the door was open for Punk if he ever wants to return to wrestling.

“We’ll be honest. Of course, we would love him to come to our company. At this time, I just don’t think he wants to. Matt talks to him all the time about it but the timing is not right, I guess.” – Nick

“When he wants to come back to wrestling, it’ll be his decision. Professional wrestling is the most demanding thing in the world. You can’t just find yourself back in it one day and be like ‘okay, I guess I’m doing this again.’ You really have to want to do it and that’s up to him.” – Matt
