The Young Bucks and Will Ospreay segments on AEW Dynamite were reportedly not their ideas

During the April 10th 2024 edition of AEW Dynamite, The Young Bucks (Matthew Jackson & Nicholas Jackson) presented backstage footage of CM Punk’s backstage altercation with Jack Perry from AEW All In 2023. There was also a promo segment with Will Ospreay where he took a shot at Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

During his audio update on, Wade Keller of discussed what happened on Dynamite…

“I’ve been checking with people in AEW and I have been told that this was not something The Bucks were in favor of doing. It wasn’t their idea, it was Tony Khan’s idea that he wanted this out there. They also had Will Ospreay go on camera, interviewed by Renee Paquette on the stage. The first part of his promo was him addressing a comment that Triple H said on the podcast [that was] alluding to Will Ospreay being someone who didn’t want to be part of the grind. I’m also told that this was an idea presented to Ospreay. I don’t know about Ospreay’s enthusiasm for or against it but it wasn’t something he did on his own. He didn’t wing it. It was something that hours before the interview took place, was proposed to him. That’s what I’m hearing from AEW.”

“Based on what I’m hearing from multiple people in AEW, nobody that they know was in favor of what Tony Khan put on TV [between] the Punk footage and the Ospreay did at Triple H. People see it as a distraction and Tony Khan going after two people that Tony has issues with, Punk and Paul Levesque. Tony Khan sees Paul Levesque very much as a foe in his world. I would say the morale isn’t great as far as this goes.” (quotes courtesy of
