The Young Bucks and Cody reportedly turned down “main event money,” multi-year deals for more than seven figures a year from WWE, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Hangman Page was also offered a deal by WWE, but he also turned them down.
The Observer also noted that the Being the Elite episode this week was close to what happened in real life. In the episode, the Young Bucks turned down an offer from “H,” writing him a letter that said, “Although this was a difficult decision, we watched an episode of Raw and saw what you guys did to the tag team division. I know in this business the saying goes, “never say never,” but for now, we wish you the best in your future endeavors.”
Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks said that the Bucks won’t be at the ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden in April.
We will not be there, but I encourage everyone to still go. It’s a historic night for wrestling. https://t.co/kPVEjtTqIa

Cody Rhodes said the same thing a couple of months ago.
