The Young Bucks have teased an appearance at WrestleMania 34, after a (perhaps tongue-in-cheek) tweet from Nick Jackson.
The Bullet Club member was responding to an earlier post from Sheamus, one half of the Raw Tag Team Champions. Alongside tag team partner Cesaro, the Irishman seems to have no challengers for WrestleMania – although there’s still a month left for a team to emerge.
Jackson, however, sparked online speculation with a tweet claiming that he and his brother ‘have that date open’:
We happen to have that date open… https://t.co/YNVAM8xUUa

The Young Bucks are, of course, the most well-known independent tag team in the world today. As well as enjoying regular in-ring success in Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling, the brothers are also key members of Bullet Club, and have enjoyed incredible merchandise sales over the past few years.
The pair have spoken openly before about not wanting to sign with WWE, despite reported interest from the promotion. They have cited numerous reasons to stay on the independent scene, including a less rigorous schedule and greater creative freedom.
In all likelihood, then, this tweet seems to be nothing more than a tease. On the other hand, in terms of a huge tag team surprise at ‘Mania, one needs to look back no further than last year.
At WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, Matt and Jeff Hardy shockingly returned to enter a ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championship – a bout which coincidentally also included Sheamus and Cesaro, as well as the Bucks’ former Bullet Club stablemates, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
Only the night before, the Hardys had wrestled their last independent match – a ‘Ladder War’ against The Young Bucks at ROH Supercard of Honor.
