The Young Bucks on whether “Being The Elite” is finished

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

The Young Bucks Matt and Nick Jackson spoke with Kevin Eck about the future of their “Being The Elite” Youtube series and stated that they are uncertain about its future. “I think it’s poetic if we did end it at 100 episodes, but everyone else says we shouldn’t,” Nick Jackson said.

Matt Jackson added: “We’re like, man, 100 episodes, we can end it when it’s the hottest. It almost feels like we should end it.” However, Matt also added, “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.” Read the full interview at

Powell’s POV: It is hard to imagine the Bucks giving up the series permanently. That said, everything from the planning to shooting to the editing of the series would certainly be time consuming and I assume a sense of fatigue sets in eventually. The Bucks also discuss feuding with other Bullet Club members, having creative freedom and the idea of giving that up for a WWE run.

  1. I haven’t seen the series because the Young Bucks are one of the most over-rated tag teams in the world (they are athletic, but their ring psychology and selling are beyond terrible), so I don’t mind if it ends. Whether it continues or not though, I think ROH should stop assuming their viewers watch it. They continually have storylines based on stuff that happens on this YouTube show.

      By claiming the Bucks psychology and selling is terrible you’ve proved you don’t watch Young Buck matches. Matt has been selling an injury since January while their matches with Roppongi Vice, Roppongi 3K and The Golden Lovers focused on storytelling over in-ring work.

  2. Nobody gives an unwiped rat’s ass about these midget spot monkeys.

    I get really frustrated by commentators like the ones above, they base their comments on either hearsay; personal bias; historical data; or, more likely, a combination of the three.

    The Bucks for a long while (especially in their PWG appearances 2010-2015) were very spot heavy. I’m not necessarily knocking that in isolation as I believe there a different kinds of wrestling & they can be enjoyed both independently (no pun intended) & in relation to the other sub-genres.

    However, to say “their ring psychology and selling are beyond terrible” & calling them “midget spot monkeys” is ignorant to the point of ridicule.

    Just watch their match vs The Golden Lovers – that is a match built on years of interwoven relationships: I do not know what more psychology you could want?! As for selling, Matt’s back selling since his injury has been excellent.

    Unfortunately, a modern Western cultural paradigm is people without knowledge on a subject espousing confidently like they do – I wish this was just confined to wrestling criticism.
