In promotion of the upcoming All In event, The Young Bucks spoke with Sporting News on the event itself and if they will bring back Being The Elite.
The brothers first commented on if they’ve decided whether to continue Being The Elite after the 100th episode was released a few weeks back, or if they will end the series there:
Nick Jackson: “I think it’s poetic if we did end it at 100 episodes, but everyone else says we shouldn’t.”
Matt Jackson: “We’re like, ‘Man, 100 episodes, we can end it when it’s the hottest.’ It almost feels like we should end it. It’s kind of undecided, but I feel like we’d be crazy not to bring it back at some point. It’s become such a popular tool for us now.”
Matt Jackson explains why they wouldn’t sell Being The Elite to an outside company like New Japan Pro Wrestling or Ring of Honor:
Matt Jackson: “It defeats the whole purpose of the DIY thing. We want everyone to know that this is our baby. That’s why people like it I think. It’s also control of your own destiny of your own career. You don’t know how you’re going to be booked in Ring of Honor or New Japan. We have influence, but we don’t have final say. With this show, we’re the writers, the actors and the editors.”
Both brothers explain their desire to sign CM Punk on for September 1 to compete at All In, which will take place in Chicago:
Matt Jackson: “I will say this: I text message Punk on a weekly basis. We’re good friends. We talk wrestling. He still loves wrestling, of course he does. We’re pro wrestlers. That’s what we do. Even when you quit or retire or whatever, it’s still in your blood.”
Nick Jackson: “Hell yeah I would like those guys [Punk and Daniel Bryan]. Those names would be icing on the cake. … But I don’t think we need them to get to 10,000. With the card we have in mind, I think that should do it.”
