We don't think The Dead Man will be too amused!

What's the story?

The Young Bucks are a tag team that has formed a cult following outside the WWE. They have been able to achieve this with their inherent wit, sense of humour and incredible in-ring skills. As the 'Elite' group within the Bullet Club, they are changing the landscape of professional wrestling today.

Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks recently put up a photoshopped picture of The Undertaker, dubbing him 'The IndyTaker'. Here is the tweet that he sent out:

As one can see, the image shows The IndyTaker leaving a Subway joint. We've linked the original image below.

In case you didn't know...

This was the original image in question, showing The Undertaker leaving a Subway, out of character:

The original t-shirt was a 'Rogue American' print with a gun, painted in the colours of the American Flag and certainly not a Young Bucks design.

The heart of the matter

The Young Bucks belong to The Bullet Club, a faction that is notorious for recruiting different members into their ranks by offering them their signature t-shirt. By putting up the Tweet, Nick Jackson was indicating that The Undertaker was now a member of Japan's most infamous faction.

We really wonder if The Undertaker will take this Tweet as a compliment or if he will be annoyed at being photoshopped by the 'Bucks of Youth'. The Young Bucks certainly take liberties with elements and characters from WWE, and we wonder how this will play out.


One interesting thing to note is that The IndyTaker is also a move performed by this dynamic duo.

What's next?

The Undertaker, after seemingly having retired from the ring for good, is expected to be back for the 25th Anniversary of RAW on January 22nd.

He joins legends such as Shawn Michaels and Kevin Nash. As for the Young Bucks, they will continue to make waves on the independent circuit.

Author's take

I really hope that The Undertaker and WWE have a sense of humour about this Tweet. Let's hope that the Young Bucks do not get yet another cease and desist letter from the promotion.
