Description

"The Young Bucks are two guys who not only beat the odds to become one of the greatest, most popular tag teams ever, but also two industry changing visionaries. Matt and Nick are two of the smartest, hard-working, passionate individuals I’ve met during my 28 year career. With the creation of AEW, The Bucks will definitely leave the pro wrestling industry in a much better place then they discovered it in." (Matt Hardy, multiple-time world tag team champion)

The electric and daring independent wrestling tag team tells their inspiring story, revealing how two undersized, ambitious amateur athletes from Southern California became the idols of millions of popular sports fans and coveted among the ranks of AEW’s elite wrestling lineup.

Famous for their highflying moves, Superkicks and viral videos, Matt and Nick Jackson are two of the hottest and most talented competitors in professional wrestling today. Known as the Young Bucks, this pair of ambitious brothers are an inspiration to both fans and aspiring wrestlers worldwide due to their message of resilience and determination. That they are also faithful family men devoted to their loved ones gives them additional appeal.

A warm, heartfelt story of hope, perseverance, and undying ambition told with the brothers’ wit and charm, Young Bucks begins in Southern California, where two young boys grew up dreaming of success and fame. Matt and Nick look back on the sacrifices they made to achieve their ambitions, from taking odd jobs to pay for their own wrestling ring to hosting backyard events with friends. They share their joy at being recruited into the amateur California circuit and the work it took to finally make it professionally, and speak frankly about what it means to have the support of millions of fans cheering their talents in arenas nationwide. The Young Bucks talk endearingly about their sport, their faith, and their families, sharing personal reflections and behind-the-scenes anecdotes while paying tribute to the wrestling acts and inspirations that came before them. They also elaborate on this historical time in the evolution of wrestling, as the sport and its culture dramatically change day by day.

Alternating between each brother’s perspective from chapter to chapter, this entertaining memoir is a complete portrait of what it means to grow into - and give back to - wrestling, the sport and profession they embody and love.

Why is a white guy doing voices for Booker T?

That's one of my pressing issues, aside from that, not much new info. A very basic retelling of the history any fan already knew. No cool road stories, nothing super interesting I'm.childhood. Do not Recommend.

great story. average narration

The story was great but the narrator was not great. He pronounced a lot of names wrong and he did a fairly offensive voice when voicing an African American. It would have been better if the Young Bucks had read it

Great story hurt by the narrator

The narrator does not know the language and terms about wrestling, When the narrator says a name, move, or wrestling term wrong and then continues to say the names wrong for the next few minutes it gets frustrating, it takes you out of the story. Not the books fault.

Behind the Elite

Definitely an interesting account of how the Young Bucks and AEW came to be. If you’re a hardcore wrestling fan, this is worth your time — but know the basics before you go in. You’ll have to get over some of the mispronunciations (Gedo, Balor), but the reading is otherwise OK.

The Elite. The The Elite

While many die-hard fans may know many of the stories within this book from the Young Bucks' previous interviews and vlogs, there are quite a few interesting details that I was not aware of. This book follows the Young Bucks' journey from childhood wrestling fans to creating and producing their own weekly wrestling series. The writing reflects their personality, and the audiobook narrator does a good job bringing the book to life - the narrator even sounds similar to Matt Jackson. I recommend this book to any Young Bucks fan out there.

Finally glad to hear about AEW’s birth

I grew up watching WWE and WCW until I was about 12 years old. I stopped watching because it got boring to me then I slowly started hearing about this movement that The Elite started and it caught my interest. Since that I have watched AEW religiously and even went to a live episode of Dynamite. Hearing about the origins made me love this company even more. I am forever All Elite.
