Re: Where do you stand on the young bucks?

Absolute garbage. They're very athletic, but once you've seen one Young Bucks match, you've seen every Young Bucks match forever and ever till the end of time, borderline spot-for-spot.

Re: Where do you stand on the young bucks?

I think people seem to have a different degree on what constitutes on someone having a big ego. To me, in all the interviews I've seen, they come off as somewhat humble and most definitely confident in their work. One thing I have to say about the Booker incident, is that in an interview, they admitted to overdoing it in a tryout match with indie "movez". I can totally see that not going over well with some people. They also admitted to the spot monkey tag they've been branded years ago with but I also agree with them, that they've shed that in recent years.

Re: Where do you stand on the young bucks?

Take or leave. They're good, but I feel like their characters are kind of redundant and an archetype I'm usually not fond of.


I love professional-wrestling.

Watch their PWG matches and their control segments. ROH is ROH and in New Japan they're heel shtick won't translate as well as it does in America.

AR Fox is a spot monkey. The Bucks certainly aren't. Their matches have spots but that doesn't mean they aren't worked well. Honestly as champions they are almost Flair like in how they structure their matches. They get the shit kicked out of them at first and you think they have no chance; then they someone get control of the match; then the other team makes the comeback; they hang with the challenger for a while and it's awesome; and then they either cheat to win which drives you crazy, win cleanly which drives you even more crazy, or lose and it's the greatest thing ever.

They don't go out there and just do spots for 20 minutes. They play heels, cheat, piss you off, and make you want to see the other team beat them.

Watch PWG. That's good advice for anyone that likes wrestling and you can also see how they get heat and play amazing characters while doing the coolest shit in the ring.


They are my favorite tag team in wrestling right now and it's not even close.

Re: Where do you stand on the young bucks?

They are fantastic. Granted I haven't seen all too much of their work but from what I have seen they are a phenomenal tag team, at least as far as in-ring work goes. Haven't seen too much of their promos or characters or whatnot. That said I've seen them live a few times now and each time they tore the house down, were easily the highlight of the night every time.

I met them at the last show I saw them at. Bought a shirt and despite the long line they both were personable and even both signed their silhouettes on the shirt with no extra charge. They didn't seem arrogant at all to me.
