The Grapevine (10/28/15): Where Are The Young Bucks Going?

Good morning, everyone! Welcome to the Grapevine, where we round up the (technically unconfirmed) rumors from the wild world of pro wrestling that you may have missed over the evening.

This week of wrestling continues with some juicier news:

  • The Young Bucks have apparently signed with a "major promotion." The notorious tag team tweeted the following yesterday:
    In an update on which promotion it could possibly be, Lucha Underground executive producer Chris DeJoseph apparently acknowledged the Bucks' tweet, but has since deleted it. We also do know that it's not WWE. (Source: WrestlingInc, Wrestlezone) 

We say: All signs point to either ROH, New Japan, or Lucha Underground. We've reported a while back that they were close to signing with Ring of Honor. It would also make sense for them to sign with NJPW considering how often they're used there, but LU is an interesting prospect considering they have so much cap room after letting go of El Patron. It would be very interesting if the Bucks would be the newest sacrifices in the Temple, although they'd have to find a third if they want to play in the Trios division.

  • Nick Dinsmore may be returning to the WWE. The former Eugene worked as a coach in the Performance Center last year before being released in October. It's still not confirmed whether he will work as an in-ring talent or another stint as a coach. It's said that he was generally well-liked during his previous run, but he might have been released due to political reasons. (Source: PWInsider)

We say: The more positive influences there are down at Orlando, the better. Not everyone may have liked the Eugene character, but it can't be denied that Nick Dinsmore was a good worker.

  • The Usos are returning to the ring as a team soon. They had been working out in the ring down at the Performance Center lately. Jey Uso had been out with a shoulder injury for a while now, and Jimmy Uso had had a decent run as color commentator on Main Event and SmackDown, as well as having a few matches with his brother here and there.

We say: It's starting to look real good for the tag team division, which had been heating up with the New Day, the Dudleys, the Lucha Dragons (when they get enough time), the Prime Time Players (when they're not being squashed), the Wyatts, and recently, Team No First Name and the Eurotrash Lads. It's all a matter now of booking the tag division to be a competitive league.

What do you think? Where are the Young Bucks headed? Do you want to see Eugene down at NXT? Let us know what you think in the comments!
