The Young Bucks decided to take a shot at WWE.
The Young Bucks are no longer allowed to use the Crotch Chop, made famous by D-Generation X in the 90s, after WWE reportedly sent the Bucks a Cease And Desist letter permitting the pair from using the gesture any further.
We noted earlier on the site, The Young Bucks were contacted to do WWE 2K19 work just one day after they received their cease & desist letter from WWE following the recent "invasion" outside of a Raw TV event in California.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the company in charge of the WWE 2K franchise contacted brothers to ask them about doing motion capture work for next year's video game. The game creators felt like they needed all of the signature YB moves in the game due to the fact that so many people playing last year's edition were using the Create-A-Wrestler mode to play as the brothers.
Ring of Honor held their Global Wars event on Thursday night in Buffalo, New York at the Buffalo Riverworks. After the main event had concluded, The Bullet Club talked about the cease and desist letter over the “too sweet” hand gesture that was sent by WWE.
The group also made a reference to the firing of Jimmy Jacobs for the Raw “invasion” angle from a few weeks back.
“I don’t even know where to begin,” said Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks. “These last few weeks have been such a whirlwind in our career. I want to say how much I love Ring of Honor, and I’m not just saying that. I love this place for a certain reason. I can do whatever the hell I want and not going to get a damn cease and desist letter. I have the benefit of taking a damn selfie with whoever the hell I want. But most importantly, I love this company more than any other company in the world because of all you fans. I mean that.
You think that because you own a billion dollar company that you can take some silly hand gesture away from me? You’re not taking it away from me. You’re taking it from every one of the fans.”
