• Details On The Major WWE Contract That Young Bucks Rejected
Before starting All Elite Wrestling, The Young Bucks rejected a major WWE contract.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Triple H offered The Young Bucks approximately the same amount of money that former 2 time WWE Champion AJ Styles gets paid (and AJ is among the top paid full-time WWE Superstars right now).
Along with that type of money, WWE wanted to make their “Being The Elite” YouTube show a weekly special on the WWE Network.
The contract also included a “6 month window” where they could pull out of their 3 year contracts if they weren’t happy with their booking. The Observer noted that WWE never offered anyone this “6 month window” deal ever.
