UPDATE: WWE 2K Creators Asked The Young Bucks For Motion Capture Help On Future Game

Although WWE itself is starting to get tired of the Young Bucks, the people that make the WWE 2K video games are sure interested in bringing them on board.

According to Dave Meltzer's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE 2K video game people asked the popular indy tag team to work on doing motion captures for next year’s game, presumably titled WWE 2K19. The reason for this request, given how The Young Bucks aren't even WWE performers, is that so many people in last year’s game were using the games' signature create-a-wrestler mode to play as The Young Bucks that they felt they needed to get all their signature moves in the next game.

It should be noted that the people that work on the WWE video games are not WWE employees per se, so it is not like WWE approved of the request or were even aware of the video game creators' plans of asking The Young Bucks for assistance.

It's been a bizarre past few weeks for the Bucks. The duo, as well as several of their Bullet Club brethren, "invaded" Monday Night RAW and was then hit with a cease-and-desist letter from WWE to stop using the "Too Sweet" hand gesture. The Young Bucks has since then responded by selling the remainder of their "Too Sweet" merchandise and putting out a new shirt based on the letter which has become a popular piece of merchandise.

Nick Jackson confirmed that the game makers did reach out for the work. The Young Bucks would pass on the offer.
