Last updated

Matt and Nick Jackson, popularly known as The Young Bucks, have shared their reasons for re-signing with AEW instead of moving to WWE.

The Young Bucks, along with Kenny Omega, collectively known as The Elite, have renewed their contracts with AEW, signing multi-year deals.

This decision has sparked curiosity among fans and critics alike, as many wondered why they chose to stay with AEW instead of exploring opportunities with WWE.

When asked about their decision by Sports Illustrated, Matt Jackson explained that they are the ‘E’ in AEW, the main characters of the company. He emphasized that they are the DNA of AEW, and if the foundation of a company is lost, it eventually collapses. This sense of responsibility and ownership played a significant role in their decision to stay.
