Sean Ross Sapp passed along the following interview excerpts.
The Young Bucks recently addressed their current contract status with Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling expiring soon and how they both have big decisions ahead.
“Contract season’s here, right? I think it’s been 20 years since there’s been wrestlers who have the leverage that we currently have. We’re aware of that, we know the position that we have. Next year will be the year we get paid, no matter where we’re wrestling.”
“I think everyone wants to sign us right now, which is a good problem to have. It shows that the interest is high. It’s great for us.”
Cody Rhodes also discussed introducing the All Us and All Incoming documentary series on YouTube leading up to ALL IN and why he’d like them to continue.
“I’d like to keep it going. The sentiment behind All In isn’t a single show as we’ve seen. I’m also at the end of the month wrestling for the NJPW United States Championship. I’d like All Us and All Incoming, whether we change the titles or not, there’s a great production company behind that. Dave Lagana has done an exceptional job. He likes capturing what’s happening on in a wrestler’s life in a real way, and I like being the focus for that”
Cody also talked being pitched the NWA Title angle for ALL IN:
“It’s always been floated my way because it’s the easiest thing to do, I guess. Dusty Rhodes’ son. I think I pushed so much Dusty related things away, not because they’re not valuable to me, but because they’re not me. This came along as something that felt like me. Billy and I talked about it and I happened to be self funding a show. They didn’t have a match, I didn’t have a match. They pumped blood back into the Ten Pounds of Gold and made you turn your head.”
