Recent developments have shed light on the creative direction for the heel turns of AEW Executive Vice Presidents, the Young Bucks, particularly following their loss at Full Gear 2023.
During the November 16 pay-per-view, the Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson, faced defeat at the hands of Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho. The aftermath of the match saw the Young Bucks expressing their frustration by wreaking havoc on the ringside area.
In a significant announcement by Brandon Cutler, it was revealed that the Young Bucks are opting for a hiatus from wrestling. According to insights from Fightful Select, this signals the official commencement of the Young Bucks’ heel turn.
The report further indicates that plans are in place for the Young Bucks to be joined by other wrestling stars, hinting at the formation of a heel faction. Tentative details suggest that Brandon Cutler will maintain his alignment with the Bucks.
Cutler’s role in tweeting about the Young Bucks taking time away aligns with these plans, with indications that he will assume a more prominent speaking role for them both on-screen and through social media moving forward.
