Young Bucks doing something for a good cause (and making a shrewd PR move) in their trademark fight with WWE

In the wake of WWE’s cease and desist letter regarding use of the “Too Sweet” hand gesture, The Young Bucks removed all merchandise featuring the symbol from their online store (there are still a few lingering designs which show it on other affiliates like

They’ve also got some ring gear they can’t perform in again unless they want to risk paying Vince McMahon $150K, or until they win a lengthy and costly legal battle with Stamford, so they’ve set up an auction to sell their “Two Sweet” tights. And in a very cool, and public relations savvy, move, all proceeds from the sale will go to a children’s hospital Matt and Nick Jackson recently visited with fellow Ring of Honor (ROH) wrestlers:

Young Bucks "Too Sweet" Ring Worn Tights up for auction--100% of the sale of these tights will benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.—September 28, 2017—The Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson, are auctioning two pair of Too Sweet Ring Worn Wrestling Tights, famously used in "Being the Elite" episode 47 during Matt's mid-match promo. These were also worn in New Japan Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla and Ring of Honor Wrestling.

100% of the sale of these tights will benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

This is the ONLY set ever made and worn by the Bucks. The Bucks will sign them if requested to do so. The auction will run from now until 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time Sunday, October 1.

“Seeing how we’ll obviously no longer be able to use these tights, we have decided to turn a negative into a positive and give back. We have chosen Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to receive 100% of the funds raised in our eBay auction. We decided to give back to this particular hospital, because we were so touched by the children and hospital staff we spent some time with during our recent visit,” said Matt Jackson.

The bid as of this writing is over $700, and there’s still a couple days to go.

If you’ve got the dough, get a piece of wrestling history and help some kids.
