Through social media, the Young Bucks revealed to fans that they have signed a new contract. Of course, to make things fun, the brothers did not bother to reveal which promotion that they are signing with. Instead, they listed out Lucha Underground, WWE, ROH, TNA and New Japan. The belief is that the popular tandem has not signed with World Wrestling Entertainment because they have backstage heat there.

Here is an interesting tidbit on Brutus Beefcake. Back when he and Hulk Hogan started their professional wrestling careers together during the late 1970s, they were billed as brothers. Since they really wanted people to believe that, they made it a point to stay in character outside of the arena. It caused enough confusion that many people, including those in the industry, really believed that they were blood brothers.

It looks like the Briscoes are stuck in ROH. The two brothers went to WWE to see if they could get an offer, which they did. Mark Briscoe and Jay Briscoe allowed their current company the opportunity to negotiate. Ring of Honor gave them a higher offer because they desperately needed the two of them to stick around. The two then went back to World Wrestling Entertainment, but the company refused to budge on their original offer.

Apparently, WWE is still really bitter about the Young Bucks rejecting their offer last year. The brothers were asked to go in for a tryout because they had become one of the hottest acts on the independent wrestling circuit and internationally. However, Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson opted to remain free agents. Management is said to be furious because they are not used to performers not wanting to work for them.

While the internet wrestling community has been yearning for some sort of interaction between the real life brothers, WWE has no plan for a program featuring both Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt. An idea has been floated around since both characters have elements of mind control, but management feels that it is too much of a stretch for fans to believe. Also, there is not a lot of support backstage for Dallas being utilized as an upper level performer.

When they were first starting out in the industry, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson never would have dreamed of rejecting WWE, but that is actually what recently happened. Management grew really impressed with their work on the independent wrestling circuit, so they contacted the brothers to gauge their interest in signing a contract. The Young Bucks reportedly turned down the invitation, but they were said to be quite cordial and polite, in doing so.
