Young Bucks Reveal How Much Money WWE Offered Them

AEW World Tag Team Champions and Executive Vice Presidents the Young Bucks have revealed how much they were offered to sign with WWE.

It’s no secret that WWE was looking to bring in the Bucks and others before the launch of AEW, but Matt Jackson has now revealed exactly how much they’d have made if they accepted the first offer.

Speaking on the Talk’n Shop podcast, Matt said:

“I knew the kind of money the Good Brothers were getting. Everyone else was getting like $150,000 to start. He was already offering us $500,000 each guaranteed. I’m going like, ‘What?!’. At that moment, we knew our street value. That was just the first offer.”

The contract would also have had a 10-month clause during which they could have left if they wanted to.

Obviously, they ended up not accepting and were EVPs at the launch of AEW.

The Bucks recently turned heel to align with Kenny Omega, the Good Brothers and Don Callis to form the Super Elite faction.
