The Young Bucks On Why They Quit Using Twitter And How It Benefited Them
Posted By: Dustin Frisch on Feb 28, 2020
The Young Bucks discussed the reason on why they decided to exit Twitter last year, and discuss how it's been the best thing for them in many ways.
Both tag team members deleted their Twitter accounts in December, and they spoke with the Sporting News about the decision.
Nick on the decision
‘Things like that, the negativity — we’ve been getting it our whole career, and it’s funny that people pointed to that situation. That was far from the truth because we could care less. I had no clue there is even outrage about the Dark Order punch thing until Brandon Cutler told us at a Christmas party that Twitter was going nuts, and we’re like, ‘What? Really?’ To that point, we were just about done with social media. We were done with it anyway. So one morning, Matt and I decided to delete it, and we had been talking about it forever. I was like, ‘You know what, since you want to delete it, that means I can delete it.’ So we removed it at the same exact time, and we didn’t look back.
That platform helped us get to where we were. But at this point, we didn’t need it anymore. We got what we needed out of it. And that that was it. Another reason was, we were spending too much time on it. While we were home, we would be reading things about us good or bad. There’s one particular moment where it hit me where I was reading stuff about the show, and my kids were playing, and they were like, ‘Daddy come play with me.’ And I wasn’t listening to them. They had to shake me and said, ‘Daddy, come play with me.’ And then I looked at my phone and was like, ‘What am I doing? I’m wasting time on this fake thing that doesn’t matter. It doesn’t affect my life. I’m taking time doing this instead of playing with my children at home.
How selfish of a human being am I to do this?’ It hit me. I was like, ‘You know what, that’s it. I’m done with it.’ It’s been a few months now that I haven’t even looked at it. It’s really changed my life in that regard."
Matt on how leaving Twitter benefited them
“I was going to add that it’s also helped spark our creativity. I think the shows have been a lot better since we got off because when you read something and whether you’re going to believe it or not, it’s still in the back of your mind, and maybe subconsciously, you’re thinking about it. It started to start changing the way you feel about the shows and your creativity. For me, it stifled me. You’d have a great match or great show, and I would read a comment, and I’d be hot rolling my eyes. But then again, like, maybe it did play a factor and certain ways I saw it and perhaps I misjudged it, and I’m like, ‘Wait, did we not have a good show?’ I thought it was, and then I realized, ‘Wait a minute now, like, you’re never going to be able to make everybody happy. It’s absolutely impossible.’
On the same breath, though, it’s also not good mentally to read the extreme good about yourself. It’s like this emotional roller-coaster ride, and you put yourself through it. It’s just not a healthy thing to sit there and read about yourself. We still are on social media. We do have a presence, and I still do have a Twitter account. I’m not controlling it anymore. I still have Instagram, and we still have ‘Being The Elite,’ which, in my eyes, is what truly brought us to the dance. That’s where I communicate with my fans the most, and that’s where I express myself the most. We’re still available to our fans. We’re the most accessible wrestlers in the world. We’re going to maintain that and be like that forever.”
