As previously noted, there was reportedly a physical altercation between members of The Elite and CM Punk after the 2022 AEW Out PPV event when The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega “stormed into” CM Punk’s locker room.
There are rumors circulating around the internet that the Young Bucks allegedly sent out “feelers” to WWE to see if the company is interested in them. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com commented on the matter…
“The only thing I know on that is they have said that story is not true. They talk to people in WWE, that’s not unusual. But again, time will tell on what happened and what’s happening and everything like that. — but I do know that they’ve denied that stuff.”
“One thing that’s kinda weird to me, it’s like the nature of the story is that they called a WWE Talent, who I’m sure they did call, and wanted to get in touch with Triple H or something right? And it’s like why would they — If you wanna get in touch in Triple H, they negotiated with the guy in 2018. A lot. So why would you need an intermediary to go through? If that was your goal, why? — That’s the thing that doesn’t add up. I’m not saying it didn’t happen. I am saying they denied it happened.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlePurists.com)
In other news regarding the Bucks, it was announced via Twitter that their YouTube series Being The Elite is going on hiatus until further notice. The Bucks and Omega have also been removed from promotional material for the 2022 Full Gear PPV.
