Tony Khan has opened up about licensing the Young Bucks’ new entrance song for their return at last Saturday’s (November 19) AEW Full Gear.
After being absent from AEW television for two months following a backstage incident following AEW All Out 2022, wherein the Bucks and Kenny Omega were involved in a backstage altercation with CM Punk and Ace Steel, the Bucks and Omega made their return to the company at Full Gear.
The trio were accompanied by the Kansas song Carry On My Wayward Son, instead of their usual entrance music.
During the post-Full Gear media scrum, AEW Tony Khan spoke about licensing the song:
“The song was a great idea. They asked me about licensing it. It’s similar to trades in sports where it takes two willing parties and sometimes you’re very happy to get a deal done and you’re like, ‘Wow, that was very pleasant and a good deal and good trade.’
“Other times it’s very brutal and painful and you feel like you got dragged. This was not one of those.
“They were very nice. Kansas and all the people we worked with was very nice about licensing it. The Elite asked me about the use of it.
“I thought it was a great idea and I was excited about the idea of the series and I’m excited about matches going forward after the interesting finish and controversial ending. I thought it was appropriate to settle it with a best of seven series.”
“I’m very open to using it again and they were very cool about us using it tonight. I think there’s a good chance we would use it again.”
The Elite lost their match against current AEW Trios Champions Death Triangle, and will face them in a best-of-seven series going forward.
