The Young Bucks On Being Initially Split On How They Felt About Tony Khan

During a recent episode of AEW Unrestricted, The Young Bucks discussed their initial difference in opinion when it came to Tony Khan. Here’s what they had to say:

Nick On Why He Wasn’t Sold On Khan At First:

At that time though, we were negotiating with literally every company in the world that is involved in wrestling. So this was another thing, and I was like, ‘There’s no way this is gonna be real,’ because here we have these real companies offering the world to us. So at that point, I was like, ‘I dunno, Matt. Let’s go with something we know for sure’.

Matt On Believing In Tony Khan Right Away:

Tony got me on the phone, and I’ll tell you, like, it wasn’t immediate. But I talked to him, and I’m like … I just said [to Nick] ‘There’s something to this guy. I did roll my eyes a few times during the conversation. I’m not going to act like I didn’t, because he was telling me crazy stuff. Like he was talking about, ‘Oh, I’m gonna get the show on TNT!’ And all these big wild dreams. And you know, a part of me goes, ‘Yeah, I’ve heard this. But then I have this weird thing were I just hear people out and I have this open mind. And I said, ‘You know what? There might be something to this.’ And even Dana was like, ‘Matt, come on. Stop wasting your time.’ And I said, ‘No no. Let me take another call. So the second call, you know, led to a third call, which led to a fourth call, which led to literally talking to this man every single day since July 3rd. I have not not spoken to him for longer than 24 hour since that day … And at first it was like, ‘Hypothetically, if we do this thing, this is what I would do. And the guy just knows his passion for this. And he got in my head, and he convinced me.
