Young Bucks Explain Priorities in New Contract – The Young Bucks are set to look for a new contract at the start of next year. Cody Rhodes, Hangman Page and the Bucks are all going to consider their future together, allegedly but the Bucks are flat out saying that their real family comes first. While talking to The Ross Report, Matt Jackson is quoted as saying;
Family is number one for us. It’s our top priority. We both have young kids and we care so much about them. And we want to have quality time with them and we’re gone a lot.” Matt continued, “and that’s our own doing. We’re independent contractors, so we make it really crazy for ourselves sometimes, but in July, we took it easy. Both Nick and I had a nice summer with the kids. So family is absolutely everything and our goal is to be able to retire at an young age and spend even more quality years with our family. And I want to give my kids a great life and yeah, to answer [Ross’] question, what are we going to do? Our contract is up in four months, so it’s getting down to the 11th hour now and we kind of have to make a decision whether we’re going to stay put, or go somewhere else, or go back to being independent guys. And I don’t know. The best thing is, we’re in a great spot right now. And I feel like we can’t really make a bad decision because whatever we do right now, we’re in one of those rare instances in someone’s career where no matter what we do right now it works. So I think we’re going to make the right decision no matter what that decision ends up being.
