The Young Bucks finished up with ROH this weekend but there was still speculation they could end up performing on the big ROH/NJPW Madison Square Garden show this spring. Although the Bucks are leaving ROH, they could potentially be contracted NJPW performers come that time.
According to recent comments from Matt Jackson, however, the Bucks will definitely not be on that show even if they are with NJPW come that time.
We will not be there, but I encourage everyone to still go. It’s a historic night for wrestling. https://t.co/kPVEjtTqIa

Cody Says He’s Leaving WrestleMania Weekend To WWE
Cody doubled-down on his comments about not performing on the Madison Square Garden show either during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.
“I have a massive amount of respect for Joe Koff and [GM] Greg Gilleland. My exclusivity with Ring of Honor ended a while back and they’ve maintained everything on a handshake deal. I think Greg is a revolutionary in how he allows talent to play with without overproducing,” Cody said. “But I can’t imagine me being on that particular show. After two ‘supercards’ and breaking my back essentially against Kenny last year, it still can’t change the fact that people are in town for WWE.”
He continued to say he’s performed that weekend for many years but is now leaving it to WWE.
“After 10 years with WWE doing ’Mania weekend and two more with ROH, I am leaving that weekend for the boys and girls of the WWE.”
