Report: Original Plans For The Young Bucks At AEW All Out Revealed
The Young Bucks re expected to be in six-man tag action at AEW All Out 2022
We are less than a month away from AEW All Out and several matches are slowly beginning to fall into place, with it looking likely that Young Bucks & Hangman Page vs. Undisputed Elite six-man tag could take place on the show.
For months many assumed it would be The Young Bucks vs. FTR III with all the gold on the line, and according to Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer FTR vs The Bucks was the original plan:
"FTR at one point were told that at the Chicago pay-per-view that it was going to be Young Bucks against them for all the belts. I expected that match, I thought that was the match to make,” said Meltzer. “And obviously, the powers that be thought that they had been sitting on this Kenny Omega return and Trios belts and Adam Page return forever and ever, and they were waiting for Kenny Omega to return to bring these Trios belts in. And now Kenny Omega is ready to return. So in that sense that usurped whatever the plan was, The Young Bucks were never supposed to get those belts anyway, that was supposed to be the Hardys. But they really wanted that match, and I wanted that match, and I wished the match happened, but you got to go with what you think is the bigger business.
“You can always do that match… bringing back Kenny Omega for this pay-per-view and putting the Adam Page thing back together is something that they hope will build their business up, especially for this pay-per-view show.”
Rumours ad swirled suggesting there was heat between FTR and The young Bucks, but Meltzer speculates it could be an angle on social media before an inevitable third match:
"If they think it does stir interest, you know, go stir interest,” said Meltzer. “All this is obviously meant to stir and the match is going to happen anyway at some point. They have a date for it. It's just not for a couple of months. But yeah, they really did want that match for the belts. From their perspective, I almost wish that they did it, and then went to the Trios thing for November because the Young Bucks lost the belts, which they weren't gonna have anyway. But the point is that when they did accidentally win those belts due to Jeff Hardy, it did create this situation with this Ultimo Dragon (belt collector) historical thing where you've got this one team with three belts, but they don't have the big belt, and they've got the other team with the big belt. And you can argue that these are the two best tag teams of the last however many years. I mean, they're just frickin awesome teams. And they're one and one. And you could say like, this is the biggest historical match…"
There is no indication as of yet as to what FTR will do at All Out
"I don't know if FTR is wrestling Strickland and Lee in Chicago. I think they should. I think they should beat Strickland and Lee which is still a babyface vs. babyface match. And I think that The Young Bucks (vs. FTR) match should be for all the marbles and be built up in that way... for November or February or whenever they get to it.
“I think that match is right there and they'll promote it however they want. And you know, that's the situation but I do think that from a timing standpoint, Chicago would have been good but I get why they went the other way. I think they really want Kenny Omega back and they don't I want Kenny Omega back with nothing to do, you know what I mean? And I think they want him back for that Trios thing. So that usurped the other thing. So that's the deal. And yeah, so he was mad at me [Dax Harwood]. Do I think this is all politically motivated to hold those guys down? No, because I understand the whole situation. I don't think it was."
