The Young Bucks On WWE Taking Away Their ‘Too Sweet’ Gesture, Having a Chip on Their Shoulder, ‘Being the Elite’ Success

0

NJPW and ROH stars The Young Bucks spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard this past week, and below are some interview highlights:

Nick Jackson On Success of ‘Being The Elite’ YouTube show:

“I always knew it was going to be big for us, but I’m not sure that I thought it would be this big. Originally I just wanted it all to be shot like a documentary on a weekly basis, but Matt thought of adding storylines and I think that’s what has brought it to heights we didn’t know it would reach. It’s pretty awesome to see and I’m flattered anytime someone says they watch every week.”

Matt Jackson On ‘Being the Elite’:

“We’re very proud of the way everything is going down. This is the most hands-on we’ve ever been with a wrestling angle, so to see people are enjoying it is very rewarding. When we first started using Being The Elite to supplement storylines, it was just a little extra bonus reward for the fans who watched. Something fun to follow along with. Whereas now, it feels like some of the stuff we’ve included on recent episodes are actually must-see, if you’re trying to follow along. Actually, recently, our show has given more detailed content than you might not see from watching only ROH or New Japan.”

Matt on the brothers having a chip on their shoulders:

“We’ve made a career out of working with a chip on our shoulder. Maybe that’s why we work so hard? To prove others wrong? The pool of doubters has thinned in recent years, but it’s definitely still around.”

Matt on The Bucks having the “too sweet” gesture taken away from them by a WWE cease and desist:

“People said our careers were over when the ‘Too Sweet’ hand gesture was taken from us. Now, it doesn’t even feel strange not doing it. People said we only knew how to work one style. Then we switched it up completely. People said Bullet Club had peaked for years now. Yet, here we are, as we continue to help it stay interesting and popular.”
