    The Young Bucks WWE deal would've been:
    - AJ Styles money
    - BTE being made a regular weekly show on the WWE Network
    - A 6 month window where they could've left their 3 year contract if they were unhappy
    - People within WWE were certain they'd accept it and debut at the Rumble, were really surprised they turned down such a signficant offer
    - They talked with Triple H for roughly 12 hours

    Hell of a deal. Being the VPs of a company is pretty dope alternative though.

    If Kenny signs there, will he have any kind of stake?

    Little more info

    The Young Bucks turned down a very unique deal from WWE

    Paul Levesque worked hard at getting all four into WWE. Page was offered main roster money to work NXT, where he’d have been pushed as one of its top stars. The Bucks & Cody were offered strong deals. The Bucks deal was for money roughly the same as WWE champion A.J. Styles, which would have also included BTE being made a regular weekly show on the WWE Network, as well as something I’ve never heard WWE concede on, which was a six-month window where they could have left their three-year contract if they wanted and weren’t happy with their push.

    Of course, WWE was fully aware of the Khan deal as this was going down, which was one of the reasons they went so hard in locking up talent of late. The great offer with the six-month window was with knowledge that Khan was not doing the promotion without The Bucks & Cody and signing them would keep them from being opposition. Without them, Khan wouldn’t have the star power and stars of All In, meaning he’d likely not have the openings to everything from television to top talent that was necessary.

    Those who work in WWE with knowledge of the deal were certain they wouldn’t turn it down, and outright told me that they would be debuting at the Rumble, and had a Rumble-to-Mania significant storyline. When they made the decision to go to AEW, they remarked that it was mind-boggling that they would ever get an offer at that level, and even more that they were turning it down. But they did roughly 12 hours of talks with Levesque, who they heavily praised in how he handled everything, in particular seeing the comedy aspect in the skit they did where they superkicked Kazarian dressed up as him over-and-over in what was the public turning down of the offer on BTE.

    Cool to see them sticking together and doing their own thing.

    Further reaffirms to me at least that Kenny is going to AEW.

    Damn that was a great deal, i have more respect for them making their own path and really taking a chance.
