Apr 11, 2024 - by Steve Gerweck

The Young Bucks were ‘not in favor’ of airing the CM Punk/Jack Perry footage on Dynamite last night, along with Will Ospreay ‘not winging’ his promo, that it was planned ‘hours before’ the show started.

Wade Keller of PWTorch is reporting that The Young Bucks were not in favor of airing the CM Punk/Jack Perry footage from All In.

“I’ve been checking with people in AEW and I have been told that this was not something The Bucks were in favor of doing. It wasn’t their idea, it was Tony Khan’s idea that he wanted this out there.”

Keller continued, “They also had Will Ospreay go on camera, interviewed by Renee Paquette on the stage. The first part of his promo was him addressing a comment that Triple H said on the podcast [that was] alluding to Will Ospreay being someone who didn’t want to be part of the grind.”

Keller said the promo wasn’t Ospreay’s idea. “I’m also told that this was an idea presented to Ospreay,” Keller said. “I don’t know about Ospreay’s enthusiasm for or against it but it wasn’t something he did on his own. He didn’t wing it. It was something that hours before the interview took place, was proposed to him. That’s what I’m hearing from AEW.”

    AEW need a new boiler and all the EVP should have the title stripped from them. Airing the footage right after it happens to show their point understandable, 8 months later they just shit themselves in the foot. The crow was heard I er and over during the broadcast chanting for Punk.
    TK should just be a character not the book and the Young bucks not that it didn’t working like more like spiteful little b####es. Saying we did want to air it.

    Tony Khan should have been a gravedigger. This dude literally just does burials for a living.

    But…but…AEW is the magical place where nothing is scripted and the wrestlers are in complete control of how they present themselves. That’s how it was pitched in the beginning as the big thing that makes them like seriously totally different from WWE, so that’s how it has to be forever and for always, right? Right?
