The Young Bucks have ideas on how they will differentiate AEW from WWE.
At Wednesday's Turner upfronts in New York, The Young Bucks were on hand representing All Elite Wrestling. AEW struck a deal with Turner Media/TNT on Wednesday, announcing a multi-platform agreement that will see AEW events stream on B/R Live and a weekly television show on TNT debuting this fall.
Speaking to WrestlingNews.co, Matt and Nick Jackson discussed how their product will be different from WWE.
"It's gotta look different and feel different," said Nick.
Matt added, "It's got to sound different, it's got to be shot different. Whatever they do, we have to go the opposite. If that means they have a PG show, we should have an edgy show."
Nick ended by saying, "We should have more continuity with our stories and shouldn't give up on a story if it doesn't work. Just go with it."
The duo also stated that wins and losses will matter, which has been a big talking point for the promotion.
With AEW's big announcement and the buzz the group has created in such a short time, many unhappy wrestlers in WWE have been linked to the new promotion. Dean Ambrose recently allowed his contract to expire with WWE, making him a free agent. Tye Dillinger was granted his release request in February, Luke Harper publicly asked for his release request, and there have been reports of Sasha Banks and The Revival being unhappy.
On the frustrations in WWE, Nick said, "We've heard the chatter a lot. We have a lot of friends that work there and we hear it from them too. I feel like we've changed the landscape of wrestling and it's going to give them some competition."
The duo teased surprises for AEW Double or Nothing, which is scheduled for May 25.
