Cody Rhodes & The Young Bucks Comment On Potentially Signing With The WWE

Cody Rhodes & The Young Bucks appeared on Talk is Jericho (via WrestlingInc). Here are the highlights:

Possible WWE return:

“Somebody asked me the other day, ‘would you go back?’ And the answer has pretty much definitely become, ‘I don’t think so,’” Rhodes explained. “Not because I don’t like WWE or WrestleMania or I don’t like money or I don’t like the big production. Because I am literally now incapable of taking direction. “If you told me you’re gonna write something for me — no. If you told me you’re gonna produce something — no. If you have me a time and a finish — cool. But even that I’m literally — I don’t want to discourage because you’ve got Arn Anderson you’ve got Mike Rotunda — you’ve got these guys [as producers in WWE] — out of respect for sure. But, out of respect for myself, it’s my song that I go out there to play.”

Matt Jackson on why they may stay independent:

“That would be so hard for me and Nick because we’re DIY. Like from the ground up we’ve made every decision on our own,” Matt said. “We’ve built ourselves up to this empire now on our own. So it would be like, ‘how can I hand over the keys to this car to someone at this point?’ Like I’d feel so afraid. But you know the rules have changed now,” Matt continued. “I told Nick this the other day. I was like now everybody [in WWE] eventually wants to be where we’re at currently and we did it without having to go there. Because eventually, you want to get to a point where [Jericho] is at where you call your own shots, you do whatever you want, you have fun — that’s what we do already! We never had to go there. It’s like we’re fortunate and we’re lucky to be in the situation we are because it’s never happened before, like ever.”
