Former ROH Tag Champions talk about signing for WWE

Published Add your comment

The Young Bucks are arguably one of the most decorated Tag Teams to have never set foot in WWE.

They have bounced around from promotion to promotion over the past few years and in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, they were asked if they were finally ready to settle at one promotion and if that could be WWE.

Their response will be of interest to the WWE Universe.

Matt: "I mean, who’s to say? Right now, no. For one thing, I have a young family. I just couldn’t uproot my family for less money than I make right now. If we had an offer to go straight to TV or something, well that’s just a whole different thing.

"Of course, we’d love to entertain that idea. That’s the place to be. It would be fun to do it. Right now though? I don’t know. Of course, in five years, every person we know is going to be running the place. So they may just say, “Hey Bucks, you interested in coming on TV on Monday?” Who knows? Never say never."

Matt's partner in crime, Nick, added his own view:

"I just couldn’t move my family to Florida at this point. If something changes, then maybe you’ll see us there. I own a home in California. Right now, mentally, I need to stay where I’m at.

"My wife told me three years ago that we’re never moving to Florida. I was like, “OK, well that rules out WWE then.” But in five years? Who knows, maybe we’ll need it."

Recent work

The Young Bucks made the trip over to the UK last month to one of the biggest promotions, Southside and appeared alongside former WWE Divas and Women's Champion Melina. 

The former champions took on the Southside Tag Team Champions The Hunter Brothers in what was an epic back and forth match that was cheered along with the "superkick" chants that the duo have become known for. 

The former Ring of Honor Tag Champions now know that they have a market in the UK if they decide to continue to bounce from promotion to promotion as they have been doing. 

The boys are still young and with WWE allowing their Tag Team division to flourish whilst also waiting on the likes of Blake and Murphy to be brought up to the main roster. 

Tag team situation

The strength and depth of WWE's tag division right now gives the impression that they are not in the market for any other tag teams at the moment, especially one that are only ok with being brought up for TV time.

WWE like to brand their talent in NXT and bring them up to the main roster on their own terms.

The Young Bucks have already made a name for themselves and continue that name wherever they go, so who knows, as they say in five years time both WWE and The Young Bucks may be on the same page.

But until then, I'm sure the boys will have no problem finding places to perform.
