The Young Bucks are apparently taking some time away from wrestling.
Brandon Cutler, a close friend of The Young Bucks, took to Twitter on November 19 and stated that he is being told that Matt and Nick Jackson will be taking some time away from wrestling. He wrote that people close to Matt and Nick’s camp are asking for privacy at this time.
Matt and Nick Jackson lost to Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho at AEW Full Gear on November 18. After the bell, The Young Bucks threw a temper tantrum at ringside as they were clearly frustrated about the loss.
The Young Bucks are two-time AEW World Tag Team Champions. They have also held the AEW World Trios Championship twice. Behind the scenes, Matt and Nick are Executive Vice Presidents of AEW.
Update: Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful (via Fightful Select) reports that The Young Bucks are set to turn heel, and there have been plans for others to join the duo. Per Sapp, there are at least tentative plans for Brandon Cutler to continue with the Bucks, as well as at least another “personality.” Sapp writes that Cutler’s tweet is to further this progression, and he will be speaking for them more going forward.
Additionally, Sapp reports that, per sources, the new format of the Being The Elite series is part of this change. Additionally, things are said to be “fine” between AEW and the Young Bucks, who recently re-signed with the company on long-term deals.
WrestleZone will provide more information as it becomes available.
