Don Callis weighs in on the actions of the Young Bucks in AEW

Don Callis has given his thoughts on The Young Bucks’ recent change of direction, specifically their actions towards AEW President Tony Khan. Speaking to “Battleground Podcast”, Callis applauded Matthew and Nicholas Jackson for finally understanding the personality of the EVPs, and believes it’s a character change they should have made three years ago. “The Young Bucks, to me the most submissive, obnoxious punks I have ever experienced in professional wrestling, are now finally doing what I encouraged them to do three years ago: using the EVP titles for your own benefit, they have finally figured it out They’re not that smart, if you were smart you wouldn’t live in a compound in a place like Rancho Cucamonga. Who wants their family around them all the time, it’s terrible.

Callis then analyzed the Bucks and Jack Perry’s attack on Khan, who took a piledriver, forcing him to apply a neck brace when he appeared at the NFL draft for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Callis said he was impressed with Khan as he combined his role as CEO of AEW with his position as Chief Football Strategy Officer at the Jaguars. “What I’m saying is this: they attacked Tony Khan, which to me was quite shocking because you want to talk about the golden goose, Tony is the reason we’re all here. I don’t always agree with Tony, but Tony is the man in terms of all of us having a place to ply our trade… I was pretty impressed with Tony Khan showing up at (the NFL Draft), neck brace on whatever, Tony may not be six feet tall and 400 pounds, but Boy, let me tell you, the kids have a bunch of balls on him, so I’ve gained a new respect for Tony Khan.

Last week’s “AEW Dynamite” saw the Bucks take over programming, with Khan unable to attend the show due to his on-screen injury.
