A fan of The Young Bucks (Nick and Matt Jackson) is fighting for his favorite wrestlers.
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 two months ago.
The Bucks discussed this on the 68th episode of Elite. They 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.
Just one month ago Ring of Honor held their Global Wars event 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.”
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Atlanta, GA at the Philips Arena on the USA Network, Finn Balor (former Bullet Club member) teamed up with Samoa Joe to take on Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows (also former Bullet Club members).
Before the match started while the superstars were making their way to the ring, one fan had a cease and desist t-shirt, which you can see here.
Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated recently interviewed The Young Bucks about the letter.
Matt: "They're bringing people back from the dead [Adam Cole, who was killed on their Being The Elite series]. They're sending out cease and desists written on toilet paper. And now they've taken our dear friend Hangman [Adam Page]. If I didn't know any better, I'd say it felt like they were trying to go to war with us."
Nick: "The WWE apparently can bring people back from the dead. That shocked me to my core. I'm very happy for the ghost of Adam Cole though. I hope he makes millions of dollars one day."
