How Long Did The Young Bucks Sign With ROH For?, Backstage News On Their Significant Contract

As noted, The Young Bucks recently signed a full-time deal with Ring of Honor. The new deal is for one-year, so you can expect to hear the various rumors to start up again next summer.

The new deal is exclusive for North America, except for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. They are still able to work for New Japan Pro Wrestling and NJPW actually encouraged the brothers to sign the ROH deal because officials don't want them getting hurt by working so many indie dates with how hard they go in the ring. NJPW's relationship with ROH will also give them the ability to coordinate dates for the Bucks.

The Bucks insisted on being able to still work for PWG. They also retain merchandising rights and get to keep their official t-shirt store with Pro Wrestling Tees. This is significant as no other ROH contracted talents, even though with non-exclusive deals, are allowed to have PWT stores. It's also worth noting that other similar deals, such as Jay Lethal, Bobby Fish, Adam Cole, ACH, The Briscoes and Kyle O'Reilly, do not allow them to work for PWG or anywhere else.

There's a feeling on the indie scene that this new deal shows ROH parent company Sinclair Broadcasting is willing to spend more money than ever before for talent, making it a major landmark deal.
