Young Bucks On The Elite Possibly Leaving Bullet Club, RAW Invasion, Kevin Owens

Ring Of Honor World Six-Man Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks recently joined Colt Cabana’s podcast, The Art Of Wrestling, to talk about a number of professional wrestling topics. The pair discussed The Elite possibly leaving The Bullet Club, their invasion of Monday Night RAW, advice received from current WWE Superstar Kevin Owens, and so much more. You can check out the highlights here below:

Nick on The Elite possibly leaving The Bullet Club:

“Trust us, the three of us have said, ‘let’s split’, but no one will allow it because the merchandise is too big. That’s the reason why it hasn’t split and probably won’t split up.”

Matt on the current version of The Bullet Club being his favorite:

“When [Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, and AJ Styles] left, that’s why we formed The Elite. We were planning the next phase. And this is easily the biggest The Bullet Club has ever been and it’s my favorite [lineup]. I just tweeted this last night, this is my favorite version of The Bullet Club by far! It’s the most chemistry we’ve ever had, I think.”

Matt on getting online hate for their invasion of Monday Night RAW:

“Oh my God, yeah. I’d say probably 50-50. I mean, the hatred was probably from people who don’t follow me on Twitter anyway or don’t even know who I am. They just heard about me from the invasion and all the people who love our show loved it. Do you know what I mean? So it’s either, ‘we love you,’ ‘you’re the greatest,’ ‘you’re changing the [pro wrestling] business’ or ‘I hate you and I want you to die.’ It’s one of the two.”

Nick on Kevin Owens telling them to expect more hate as they get more famous:

“Matt and I have had that specifically a lot lately and it’s crazy. I get comments that actually hurt my feelings. We actually talked with Kevin Owens about this and he was like, ‘the more you grow in popularity, [the more hate you get].'”

Matt on their RAW invasion being more about advancing their Being The Elite storyline:

“It was more about us blowing that storyline off, so it almost bothers us, like, ‘no, no, you didn’t watch the show for what it was for – you’re just watching the show because we did an invasion’ and it was the first time they’d ever seen it, so watch the whole show. Like, we found the stooge now. Come on! Like, it wasn’t just about, ‘let’s cause a stir and get heat with WWE officials.’ No, it was more about the show.”

Nick on the effort put into the invasion angle:

“We had this planned months and months and months ago and we built the story on Being The Elite for months. And we knew that they would be there that day. We planned it all. We have storylines planned for the next six to eight months that [Cabana] already know[s] about. We think of these things ahead of time, more than most major wrestling companies, which is crazy.”
