AEW World Tag Team Champions the Young Bucks have responded to rumours that CM Punk and Daniel Bryan are heading to AEW.
Unlike their teammate in the Super Elite, AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, who spoke about the rumours in a shoot interview, the Bucks took a slightly different approach.
The Jackson brothers have changed their Twitter bio to now read:
Are the rumors true? idk. We just hope they’ll take our finish well.
The Bucks have made it a staple of their heel persona to mock rumours, fans and fellow talent on Twitter, so it’s not much of a surprise that they jumped on this too.
There hasn’t been any confirmation of the big signings yet, but this time it definitely does seem like a case of ‘where there’s smoke there’s fire’.
As mentioned above, Omega did give some actual thoughts about the rumours on Wrestling Observer Radio recently, saying:
“Danielson, I still call him Bryan Danielson, Daniel Bryan, I always knew he was incredibly intelligent. He’s ridiculously smart, especially when it comes to professional wrestling. For him to kind of create a movement, an actual, legitimate movement in the ‘Yes Movement’, for him to come up with that, he created it. There’s no, absolutely no way, and you could find documented evidence saying that, ‘Oh we always planned to have you have your WrestleMania moment and be the champion’. I wouldn’t believe it. Even if I saw it in front of my face, I don’t think that was ever the plan. But he made it the plan, because he’s that smart.
“He was able to kind of turn everything around and emerge as a mega star, because he’s smart enough in a wrestling sense and a business sense. Just like in ROH, how he was able to have those fans in the palm of his hands, he’s able to have the entire WWE Universe in the palm of his hands with one word. Really the only other person I can think of that did that was Austin with the ‘What?’. There’s really nobody else I can think of who had that much power with one word. And wrestling ability? Of course, second to none. One of the most crisp, one of the most technically sound athletes to ever step foot in the ring, especially in the current age.
“CM Punk, a guy who probably has a different line of thinking then your current day performer, your average performer. And he has this incredible reputation, and he has fans to this day who would follow him to the ends of the earth. A very dedicated fanbase. And that fanbase believes he’s the best in the world and will be the best until the end of time. If you’re able to have people like that who follow your career so passionately, you probably have something very special about you. It just goes to show you that the way he presented himself, the way he spoke about himself, the way he spoke to his opponents, how he performed in the ring, entrance music, his image. He was always very meticulous and he was very intelligent about how he went about it.
“(These were) Two extremely intelligent people who found a way to sort, I don’t want to say cheat the system, but it was a system that was not created for them there. And they were able to break every ceiling that was placed in front of them and emerge as an actual legend that will never be forgotten. So it’s cool for me to think that I’ll be able to get in the ring with these two. Possibly. But I think because they were so prominent in the WWE, and a lot of that is featured with segments, angles, character work. For me, as exciting as the wrestling part is, the ability to tell a story is more exciting for me.”
