The Young Bucks Reveal ‘Raw Invasion’ Was to Include Current WWE Champion, Talk How They Operate ‘Merch Empire’

The Young Bucks were recent guests on Talk Is Jericho and they discussed an original idea for their invasion angle which never took place amongst other topics. Below are some highlights with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the quotes.

Original Invasion idea:

“We had that planned, man, for a long time. Maybe even longer [than six months]. Actually, we were originally going to do it with The Hardy Boyz. We were going to be outside of WrestleMania and we were going to do something with The Hardys.” Nick explained, “they were going to transport to WrestleMania and we were going to be there and have a little altercation. That’s right, we were going to take their titles. They were the TNA [tag]champs at the time.

“New Japan works with a company called AXS TV where they have a weekly show.” Matt continued, “and AXS TV contacted Nick and I, and [David] Lagana was one of the guys that hit us up, actually. I don’t know. He’s doing some cool stuff with NWA right now. They were about to do the New Japan Long Beach [California] show and they contacted us. And Monday Night RAW was going to be the week before out in L.A. So they were like, ‘would you guys be interested in doing some kind of invasion on AXS TV?’ and Nick and I were like, ‘yes! Let’s do it!’ AXS was all about it. AXS talked to New Japan. New Japan said, ‘no way.’”

Earning more money from merchandise:

“I literally run [the “merch empire”]from home with my wife. Like, pretty much, she does everything, so I have to give her credit. We run it out of our house. Like, literally, Dana, my wife, folds every single t-shirt, puts them in an envelope, and sends them. Old school. Like, literally hundreds. There are boxes all over my living room, boxes of inventory. Yeah.” Matt added, “we’ve made more in Young Bucks merch than we ever did in wrestling just last year. Yeah, crazy. I’m not even talking about prowrestlingtees or Hot Topic.”

The Scrub Room:

“So the guys who wouldn’t really go out and party after the shows, we would call it ‘The Scrub Room’.” Matt remembered, “it was me, Nick, Jimmy, Sami Zayn was one of them, Seth Rollins, and [Kevin] Steen was there a lot with us. We were ‘The Scrub Room’, so we’d order the pizza and talk about the [pro wrestling]business for seven hours. Bryan Danielson would frequent when everyone would party. We would just order pizza and talk about pro wrestling.”

Almost owning Bullet Club logo:

“We tried to buy that [Bullet Club logo], dude. Bullet Club name, but they got it. It took a long time to get it. We could have had it.”

Nick stated, “we were a month late. Matt and I almost owned the Bullet Club logo. They didn’t realize how big it was.”
