The Young Bucks On Selling Not Just A Wrestling Show But A Party

Nick: We have such passionate fans and we wanted to give back to our fans in a way, to make something special for one night.

Matt: It’s been very strategic too, how we were going to roll out the whole plan… We knew that we couldn’t just sell a wrestling event. You have to sell more than a wrestling event, you have to sell a feeling, you have to sell a movement. To make them {Fans} feel something like ‘hey this is for you’. Because right now is the best professional wrestling that there has ever been. Everybody can work, some of the best matches you’ll ever see… You’ve got to give the people something more than that you know what I mean? And I feel like they agreed with it, they felt it. They wanted to be apart of it. This movement, this change, you know? We wanted to show them, hey this is something new, fresh, and organic. It’s an alternative and it may be only celebrated one-time so let’s party. And that’s what we’re selling we’re selling a party And everyone wants to party with us and we’re glad they’re on board.

Young Bucks On Paul Heyman’s Tweet About The Selling Out All In

Nick: Almost everyone I’ve looked up to has reached out in a way. That blows my mind because it’s so cool to see some of the guys I grew up praising, praising us now its’ so weird.

Matt: For me, I think the Heyman one was really big because it feels like what he did with ECW was kind of a revolutionary new style of wrestling and he changed the wrestling business forever you know what I mean. And for him to say that about us I feel like he’s one of the greatest promoters of all time  and that’s what we essentially are now… So just to hear from a guy who always has his finger on the pulse of what’s cool in wrestling to give it up to us like that when he didn’t have to was really really cool of him.

Young Bucks On Who They Wish Could Be At All In From WWE

Nick: Oh man that’s a hard one. I’d have to use at least a few AJ Styles and Kevin [Owens}, the first two as well as a Sami Zayn. I’d like to use a lot of the guys though.

Matt: Man, Nick kinda stole my answers but I feel like giving a team who hasn’t really got called up, haven’t really had a fair shake, I’d love to have The Revival on the show and do The Young Bucks vs The Revival. That’d be my match probably.

The Young Bucks On The Original Venue For All In

Nick: We actually had to convince Super Dragon to move Battle of Los Angeles to a different weekend because we just needed all hands on deck for the date we found.

Matt:  July 7th at the Cow Palace, I don’t know if people even realized that. But that was our building and our date and we realized, wait a minute New Japan is probably gonna be in Long Beach in early July. So we probably shouldn’t run that weekend and we changed it. And they {New Japan Pro Wrestling} ended up running the same date in the building.

Conrad Thompson Talks About Why He Removed Vince Russo From Starrcast

I didn’t run it pass anybody, I didn’t have to run it past anybody, it’s my event, Cody {Rhodes} didn’t care, he wants me to be successful. I did invite everyone who had a podcast he {Vince Russo} said ‘yes’ and he was also willing to have fun with it. I’ve always sort of just decided that I’m gonna treat people the way they treat me. And he could not have been nicer and more accomodating. He’s the nicest guy ever in real life. But I realize sometimes when he’s producing content… he’s just trying to generate heat and buzz. I get it. What I didn’t realize when I announced him, that I was gonna get this overwhelming backlash. I did expect there to be people who were really fired up about him being there. We even joked that maybe we can do a Vince Russo dunking booth where the proceeds go to charity, I thought that be hilarious….I know he had been critical of the Young Bucks and Cody and guys like that before…the backlash online was ‘no he hates gays and lesbians and said this about Jewish people!’ I never heard any of that. I didn’t know any of that. So I talked to Vince and I said, ‘Hey Man, I don’t know what to do here?…’ He said, ‘Bro, You gotta make a business decision, I don’t wanna hurt your event, take me down and we can figure out something else we can do in the future.’ And I agree.

Conrad Thompson Talks About How Much He Had To Pay For The Starrcast Venue

I started doing some homework in late January as to where we might be able to host it. And I found a great friend named Scott, who does a of help behind-the-scenes with the Wrestling Observer board… in his real life he runs hotel chains. So he said this place has enough convention space… so it really pointed me in the right direction and we were able to pretty quickly make a deal and get a commitment for a venue which was a big undertaking and frankly a big risk because it was almost what I paid for my first house, as a personal guarantee to pull this convention off.

Conrad Thompson Talks About Who Couldn’t Make It to Starrcast   

I did reach out to literally…As much as I could, every major name in wrestling podcasting and asked. I asked Jim Ross and he was unavailable because that’s the kickoff of the football season and if you know Jim Ross he’s not gonna miss an opportunity to see opening day for the Oklahoma Sooners, so I get it. But I reached out anyway…I reached out to Edge but he’s gonna be filming Vikings Across the Pond so I get why he cannot make it. I also reached out to Chris Jericho and I guess Jericho has a bit of an understanding that he’s not gonna do anything wrestling related in the States unless it’s with Vince, which I totally get.

Published

While NXT is on the air right now on the WWE Network, the brand is simultaneously holding its next set of television tapings at Full Sail University that will run up to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III on August 18th. Tonight’s episode has been previewing next week’s big NXT Championship match as Tommaso Ciampa challenges Aleister Black.

Ciampa has had the NXT Title in his crosshairs since defeating Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II in a Street Fight. ‘The Blackheart’ has looked to put Gargano behind him and played mind games with the current champion leading up to next week’s contest, however the match was filmed tonight.

Tommaso Ciampa has gone on to defeat Black, becoming the new NXT Champion. According to MrJacobCohen on Twitter, who has been a solid source for spoilers, the referee went down in the match which led to Johnny Gargano making his way out after Ciampa. However, ‘The Blackheart’ was able to thwart off the distraction and Aleister Black, picking up the pinfall to win the title:

WWE News: Titus O’Neil Speaks Out On Hulk Hogan’s Return, Reports He Stormed Out

Published

on

The news of Hulk Hogan’s reinstatement into the WWE Hall Of Fame this past Sunday prior to the Extreme Rules pay-per-view has remained a hot topic not only among the fans, but also some of the WWE Superstars as well. After WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry offered his thoughts to TMZ Sports this week (find that here), today The New Day addressed their feelings on the situation with a post on Twitter (read that here).

Another Superstar who has been a topic of discussion with rumors swirling regarding how he reacted to the locker room’s meeting with Hogan (find out more about that here) has been Titus O’Neil. A number of false reports surfaced this week claiming Titus stormed out of the PPG Paints Arena in frustration with Hogan’s return and now Titus has issued his own statement on Hulk’s reinstatement to the Hall Of Fame, as well as the rumors surrounding his reaction:

“To my gracious fans and the WWE Universe. 

The reports and rumors concerning my boycotting “Extreme Rules” in Pittsburgh is false and inaccurate. I was not scheduled to attend or be a participant in the “Extreme Rules” match/production and was otherwise not booked for the show.

The talent present in Pittsburgh, which I was a part of, was asked to attend a mandatory meeting in which Mr. Terry Bollea addressed everyone and informed the same that he would be reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame. At no point during, after or otherwise did I make any scene concerning Mr. Bollea’s communication to the talent. In addition, let it be known that I did not refuse to shake Mr. Bollea’s hand; we did not have any type of one-on-one interaction whatsoever that would or did necessitate any exchange between us individually. 

As to the reinstatement of Mr. Bollea, I can only communicate that I am a proponent of second and even third chances for individuals that show true remorse, acknowledgment of wrongdoing, fulfill their punishment, if applicable, and otherwise put forth sincere efforts to correct the issues. 

Unfortunately, I must echo the sentiment and dissatisfaction expressed by many of my fellow contemporaries concerning Mr. Bollea’s apology and its lack of true contrition, remorse and a desire to change. Mr. Bollea’s apology “that he didn’t know he was being recorded” is not remorse for the hateful and violent utterances he made which reprise language that has caused violence against blacks and minorities for centuries.

I stand firm in my position that Mr. Bollea is entitled to reinstatement; he was and is a role model, hero and icon to countless people. I hope that Mr. Bollea’s missteps in communicating to the WWE talent in Pittsburgh are not repeated to his fans and I expect that he shall pursue an agenda that clearly communicates to all third parties that his language was inappropriate, wrong and should not be tolerated in a civilized and inclusive society.

As the father of two young black men, I have spent their entire life and the majority of my adult life with a singular focus; being a role model for my children and young black boys and girls. I take tremendous pride in my charity work and the community outreach programs that I have fostered via the platform I have been given. I teach my sons love and tolerance for everybody, but I also teach them to operate in truth and respect.

I hope this clears up any confusion. I, like New Day, will continue to use my platform to positively affect, entertain, embrace, celebrate and love people from all backgrounds both inside and outside of the WWE Universe.

Sincerely,

Thaddeus Bullard aka Titus O’Neil”
