The Young Bucks recently spoke with Busted Open Radio about various topics. Here are the highlights.
On criticism of their style from the old guard of wrestling:
Nick: “We plain out just say, ‘You’re outdated’. This is what’s hot, this is what’s new, and you’ve just got to move on. Things from back then don’t necessarily work as good now. Some of the stuff is outdated, like I said. I think if you did a chinlock for 10 minutes at a Ring of Honor show, they’re chanting ‘This is boring’. You can’t do that type of stuff nowadays. It worked back then, it was good back then, but now, it’s different. Fans nowadays, they have shorter attention spans and they want to be entertained like this and we try to give that.”
Matt: “And if you don’t…they’re going to be on their phone. I want to be the guy that has their attention from the time I hit the curtain, the entire time, I go back to the curtain. I want to be that match. Like he said, I can’t put a guy in a chinlock for 10 minutes straight and keep their attention. It’s just not going to happen in 2016.”
On The Bullet Club:
Nick: “We feel like there’s some truth to that because we feel like the Bullet Club was a cool thing at first – maybe it was because of us, but when we joined New Japan, things skyrocketed.”
Matt: “We took our fan-base that we’ve been building on the independents for so long, we took them to Japan, and they never really watched New Japan Pro Wrestling, at least some of the niche audience. We have a big following, you know? We have a cult following”.
Nick: “We know how to market our t-shirts and as soon as we saw that Bullet Club shirt, we were like, ‘We got to market the crap out of that thing’.”
Matt: “It was a cool design, but you know what? It’s a team collaboration. All these guys you’ve mentioned, we all hit it off so well. We have this undeniable chemistry. We all brought out a certain side of each other that no one else had seen. When we were all in a room together, it was special. I think people not only bought the shirt because it’s a cool shirt, they bought the shirt because of what the shirt defined. It defined a good time, it defined a party, it defined the cool thing and we all created cool.”
