WWE may be trying to stop The Young Bucks from using the Too Sweet gesture, but Matt and Nick have come up with a clever replacement.
There is seemingly only one thing The Young Bucks love more than wrestling, and that's poking the bear that is WWE. Matt and Nick Jackson are relentless when it comes to taunting the pro wrestling juggernaut and of course, the latest twist in the tale between the two is the cease and desist issued to the Bullet Club brothers by Vince McMahon.
The Bucks and the rest of the Bullet Club use the Too Sweet gesture as a part of their gimmick. The hand signal was once synonymous with the nWo and X-Pac is arguably the man who brought it to the wrestling realm. Because of that, WWE sees the Too Sweet as their property and have famously issued a cease and desist to The Young Bucks claiming that they have no right to use it.
Not ones to lie down and take it, especially when it comes to problems from WWE, The Young Bucks recently come up with an amusing alternative to the Too Sweet. Instead, The Jacksons have been using a gesture they've aptly dubbed the One Sweet. All it entails is extending your index finger as if you were pointing. Matt, Nick and others in the Bullet Club have been using it to show their unity as they would with the Too Sweet as you can see demonstrated via their t-shirt at Pro Wrestling Tees.
It's not often that WWE actively takes notice of acts outside of their own universe, but obviously, The Young Bucks struck a nerve with the company. Ironically, the more Matt and Nick are acknowledged by WWE the more popular they become. The cease and desist only inspired The Bucks to create a new line of merchandise and right now they're probably making more money than ever, thanks in part to WWE.
Aside from the invention of the One Sweet, and the rolling out of Cease and Desist merchandise, things have quietened down when it comes to the issues between WWE and certain members of the Bullet Club. The next interesting development will be Chris Jericho's involvement with the club's leader, Kenny Omega. Y2J is very much a WWE guy but it was announced over the weekend that he will appear at Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January to wrestle The Cleaner.
