The Young Bucks Reveal They Were Asked To Work Wrestle Kingdom 17, Timing Wasn’t Right


It turns out that The Young Bucks actually could’ve appeared at Wrestle Kingdom 17, but the timing didn’t work out quite right.

The Young Bucks spoke to Sports Illustrated ahead of Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite, where they re-captured the AEW World Trios Titles.


During the interview, Kenny Omega’s return to New Japan Pro Wrestling was mentioned. The Bucks revealed they were offered to work the show and be in Omega’s corner, but the timing didn’t quite work out.

Nick Jackson said, “We were actually asked to wrestle and be in Kenny’s corner. But Matt and I had vacation plans that week. Maybe next year. Who knows?”

Matt added, “We got a fantastic offer. Personally, the timing and the situation didn’t fit for us. I’m sure one day you’ll see us back in a NJPW ring.
