Impact Wrestling star Konnan recently appeared on Sean "X-Pac" Waltman's 1-2-360 Podcast and said that he tried to get The Young Bucks into Lucha Underground at one point but the company offered them a low salary, which offended them:
"The reason I went to PWG the first time was because I took Dorian Roldan from AAA and Chris Joseph, who was the writer for Lucha Underground, 'cause originally I was supposed to write the show with Chris. And so, I was like, ' Bro, you need to go to PWG and I am going to show you some guys you're going to love.' So you know I recommended Kevin Steen, The Young Bucks, Ricochet, Brian Cage, Willie Mack. They were like 'Oh, the Young Bucks, they should get new gear…' I'm like 'No, they're making fun of it, that's the gimmick.' I convinced the Young Bucks to call Lucha Underground because I could get them a contract and I was going to put them in a trio with John Morrison cause they're all from LA. And bro, they offered them $200 each. They [Young Bucks] were pissed, he wrote back, 'Yeah now for them, for us to go there, they're going to have to pay us $1,500 each, non-negotiable.' And I was like, 'Yeah, exactly.'
