Remaining absent from All Elite Wrestling following their involvement in the All Out incident, The Young Bucks – alongside their Elite partner Kenny Omega – now look set to return to the organisation. The latest teaser video hyping their comeback indicated a comeback at Full Gear on November 19.
When they return, they may not do so with their trademark entrance music. Per Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the brothers Jackson recently filed a trademark for ‘The Wayward Sons’. This hints at either a new nickname for the popular duo or, unimaginably, a new overall moniker.
A deeper dive into this, though, provides hints that the duo will adopt Kansas’ Carry On Wayward Son as their entrance music. During a Being The Elite aired in April 2021, which featured footage from AEW’s sole untelevised live event The House Always Wins, Matt Jackson can be heard saying that, in a perfect scenario, they’d be entering to that track:
“We’re up next. In a perfect world, we’d be coming out to [Carry On] Wayward Son by Kansas. Couldn’t get it done tonight.”
The Young Bucks’ current entrance music, the aptly titled Superkick Party, was produced by Meat Sauce Media.
The Young Bucks Look To Receive Latest Licensed Track In AEW
Should The Young Bucks obtain the legal rights to use the hit song, they’ll be the latest AEW stars to receive the privilege of entering to a licensed track. Thus far, the likes of Jon Moxley, ‘Jungle Boy’ Jack Perry, Orange Cassidy, Saraya, Ruby Soho, and HOOK have all been gifted with popular tracks.
According to Tony Khan, he’d also attempted to license Europe’s The Final Countdown when Bryan Danielson first arrived, though it proved “cost-prohibitive”:
“There was, in fact, an attempt to have him [Danielson] come out to The Final Countdown, figuring the place would explode, which they did anyway, but even for Tony Khan it was cost-prohibitive.”
