The issues between the WWE and independent wrestling stars The Young Bucks have been very well documented, but now the former Ring Of Honor (ROH) World Tag Team Champions may have some legal ammo against the professional wrestling powerhouse.
Initially WWE sent out a cease and desist letter to The Young Bucks for using the Too Sweet hand gesture in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and ROH without their permission. The gesture was established by the N.W.O in WCW, which is now out of business and owned by WWE.
They also caught heat for recreating the 'invasion' angle by standing outside of a WWE arena during an episode of Monday Night RAW, demanding the WWE give Cody Rhodes his last name back.
D-Generation X did something very similar to this when they were in the midst of The Monday Night Wars against WCW. Some fans didn't like that The Young Bucks essentially stole WWE's idea from the Attitude Era.
Now WWE is catching heat for their latest post on their company's United Kingdom Facebook page. On last night's Monday Night RAW Finn Balor, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows all reunited - as the three are former members of The Bullet Club from their days in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).
They teamed up in Six Man Tag Team action against the team of The Mitourage (Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas) and Elias. After winning the match WWE's UK Facebook page called the trio of Balor, Anderson, and Gallows "The Bullet Club."
Fans gave WWE a ton of heat for the post, and the company has since deleted the post. Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks responded on Twitter by posting a picture of a "Cease And Desist" logo.
Jackson has since deleted his Tweet as well, however. You can check out WWE's original post here below:
