AEW's The Young Bucks Had Been Lobbying For A Working Relationship With IMPACT Wrestling For The Last 2 Years
A long time in the making...
A working relationship between IMPACT Wrestling and All Elite Wrestling was seemingly established on Wednesday's Dynamite as Don Callis revealed everyone can find out about Kenny Omega's AEW World Title win on next week's edition of IMPACT.
The Young Bucks recently appeared on the Living The Gimmick podcast to talk about what happened on Dynamite and much more. During the interview, Matt Jackson revealed The Bucks had been lobbying for a working relationship with IMPACT Wrestling for the last two years.
Matt said: "Two years ago, this is something Nick and I actually brought up and we wanted to get this going, and for whatever reason, it just didn’t work out. I don't know if that was more on our side or what, but we just couldn't get everyone to agree on what the creative would be. But when Nick and I were stopping at all the indie shows and popping up at shows, going to AAA and Mexico, that was one of the suggestions we had was what if we show up in IMPACT?
"This is something we've been whispering in Tony Khan's ear for two years. So we're all about collaboration and partnering with everyone, and working together. This is what we've always done. Even back when we were with Ring of Honor and we got the Hardys to come in when they were a part of IMPACT, that was also a part of our plan. So this is something that we truly wanted to do for a very, very long time. And I guess the timing was right and we got done."
