It's been no secret that Ring Of Honor (ROH) Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks and the WWE have had their issues as of late, but a recent move from the WWE's side may be trying to extend an olive branch.
The Young Bucks are the hottest tag team in professional wrestling today, and arguably the hottest professional wrestlers on the indie circuit overall. Matt and Nick Jackson (real-life brothers) began their professional wrestling training back in 2001 and would land their first gig with a promotion in 2004 for High Risk Wrestling (HRW).
The Bucks would then go on to do work for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), where they'd win the PWG Tag Team Titles, and Dragon Gate as well.
Some may not know that despite their current issues with WWE, The Young Bucks actually have worked for the promotion before back in 2008 and 2011 as jobbers.
In addition to this, The Bucks continued on in their quest to work for nearly every major indie promotion in the world, working Chikara, ROH, Dragon Gate USA, and even Global Force Wrestling (GFW) (formerly known as Impact Wrestling or TNA).
Today The Bucks do most of their work for ROH and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) where they are members of the famed Bullet Club, which features former big-name members such as AJ Styles, Gallows & Anderson, and Finn Balor.
The Bucks and former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes serve as frontman for The Bullet Club alongside leader Kenny Omega. The trio went as far as attempting to recreate the old Attitude Era 'invasion' angle by standing outside a RAW arena with a tank to demand WWE give Cody Rhodes the right to use his las name on the indies.
Multiple cease and desist orders have been sent from WWE to the Bucks for the use of copyrighted material, however, a report from Wrestling Observer Newsletter may have revealed that WWE is attempting to settle their differences with the indie stars.
The report suggests that WWE 2K reached out to the Bucks a day after receiving their last cease and desist letter from WWE to do work for WWE 2K19. The contact was made due to the fact that many fans are using the Create-A-Wrestler feature in attempt to create The Young Bucks.
2K would like Matt and Nick to do motion capture work for the game so they can have all their signature moves in it next year.
What are your thoughts on WWE 2K19 contacting The Young Bucks to help out with the game next year?
