10 Secret WWE Pasts Of AEW Wrestlers

10. The Young Bucks


This is so delicious because it's Shawn Michaels and Triple H.

In 1997, D-Generation X tore up traditional wrestling rules on a weekly basis, adding yet more chaos to an increasingly wild Monday Night Raw broadcast soon to supplant WCW Nitro as the industry's Number One rated weekly show. They were the New World Order halved in number but doubled in danger, making that once-transcendent stable look ancient in comparison. Much like how The Young Bucks would look now if suddenly stood next to the seniors club that filled the ring to bury The OC on Raw Reunion.

On a recent edition of Being The Elite, Matt and Nick Jackson spoke fondly of their remarkable journey through pro wrestling - the journey that has helped forge All Elite Wrestling and all that company may yet offer to the industry at large.

They were close to giving it up thanks to a woeful TNA run and the indifference they'd been shown by WWE - Matt and Nick were knockoff Hunter and Shawns to Vince McMahon et al, and that's all they'd ever be until they were offered deals in 2018. Deals they were always going to turn down with something much bigger up ahead.
