The AEW Tag Team Champions have now indicated something even more controversial. They have put everyone on notice with a prophetic Twitter bio.

The new bio reads, “Wrestling’s sweethearts. Needle movers. Goalpost chasers. Polarizing, self-made millionaires. Could’ve retired years ago, so this is all extra credit. Done by 40.”

Shockingly, they announced they wanted to be done with wrestling by 40. Matt Jackson is currently 36, and Nick Jackson is turning 32 in July. Hence, they don’t have much time on their hands. They also put a tweet alerting everyone of their new Twitter bio. After they are “done by 40,” the Jackson brothers could embrace their executive roles of AEW and would never need to wrestle again.

After turning heel, Young Bucks have discarded their previous colorful and tasseled ring gear into more monochromatic ones, signaling their shift in character.

As The brothers defeated Rey Fenix and PAC for the Tag Titles, the Champions removed the Luchador mask off of Fenix.

The Young Bucks are committed to the heel turn

The heel turn of the Bucks came as a surprise to many fans. The champions-turned-EVP were the last persons to join the heel faction of AEW Champion Kenny Omega and Good Brothers.

In a recent interview with TVInsider, The Bucks explained their motive behind the transition. “We haven’t been true heels for many, many years. Being a bad guy is what helped get us over in wrestling. I don’t think people realize what we’re capable of doing as bad guys,” Matt said.

On the last AEW Dynamite, from a “happy-go-lucky, Disney version of The Young Bucks,” fans saw a newer, darker version of the boys. They also spoke about the negative effects of social media and fans.

“A lot of that we see on the internet now. It’s really toxic. That’s the reason we deleted our Twitter account over a year ago. But it’s fun now to bring our frustrations out. If you don’t like me, that’s fine. I’m going to make you not like me even more,” they concluded.

The Champions called the fans “fickle” and termed the “underground fans” as the real ones. Many will come and go, but true Young Bucks fans will always have their back.

Do you think The Champions will actually retire? Or is it just their heel personas speaking? Let us know in the comments below.
