Young Bucks memoir to be released this fall


A memoir from The Young Bucks is coming to bookstores later this year.

At the start of today's episode of Being the Elite, it was announced that "Young Bucks: Killing the Business from Backyards to the Big League" is now available for pre-order. The book is co-written by The Young Bucks' Matt & Nick Jackson and published by Dey Street Books. It's being released this fall and will retail for $27.99.

The listed release date for the book is Tuesday, September 29.

“Nearly 20 years ago, our father built us a wrestling ring in our back yard. Our journey to become professional wrestlers began here,” Matt Jackson said in a press release. “Then after years of hawking T-shirts out of duffel bags at independent shows across the U.S., documenting our lives on a web series filmed on our phones, and performing at the biggest events in Japan, we’d eventually land the dream job of a lifetime.

“We’re excited to share the story of how we got there, after overcoming past failures, and finally deciding to play by our own rules, ignoring traditions, earning us the reputation by critics as two wrestlers who were ‘Killing The Business.’ This memoir is yet another milestone in our career, all thanks to the support of our amazing fans.”

The Young Bucks won a tag team battle royal on Dynamite last week and will challenge Kenny Omega & Hangman Page for the AEW Tag Team titles at Revolution this Saturday. The pay-per-view is taking place at Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
