Update On The Young Bucks’ Status With ROH

0

After successfully defending the ROH World tag team titles last night at Final Battle (Results), it’s looking like the Young Bucks will be staying with Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling for the next two years.

Update: Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Dave Meltzer is now reporting the Young Bucks have signed a 2-year deal with ROH.

The Young Bucks have been on WWE’s radar for some time and were offered contract with terms similar to Bobby Roode’s. According to a source close to the situation, the Bucks were looking for ‘special treatment’ from WWE. The talks died down and they used the offer from WWE to get more money and creative control from ROH/New Japan. The deal is said to be significantly better than their current arrangement.

Many top ROH stars have contracts coming due at the end of 2016 and the Young Bucks have confirmed they’re among that group. Pro Wrestling Sheet broke the news earlier this week that ROH had offered strong deals to keep Nick and Matt Jackson on board. During a Friday appearance on the Busted Open radio show on SiriusXM, the Bucks commented on their futures:

“Our current contract [with Ring of Honor} expires on December 31st. These are our final shows for Ring of Honor for the year…Philadelphia could be, who knows? We don’t know. There’s offers on the table. We’re in a good spot right now. We’re in a really great position where we feel like we have a lot of power. We know that we’re probably the top act here, or at least one of them along with our buddy here [Adam Cole] and the Bullet Club.

A lot of people want us, so it’s cool, and we’re happy. We’re happy to be, we’re humble to be in the position we’re in, we have families. First and foremost, we want to get what we feel like we deserve and we want to be able to come home and feed our children at the end of the day. That’s the game plan, just getting what we feel like we deserve.”
