– Also at the PWG show last night, The Young Bucks not shaking hands at their WWE tryout was turned into a storyline. Before his tag team match with Scorpio Sky, Joey Ryan (both got WWE tryouts last week) cut a promo about Mark Henry scaring him at SummerSlam and the YB’s not shaking hands. After the match, The Young Bucks ran out and talked about not shaking hands. This brought out the Kings of Wrestling (Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli) who challenged them to a match. The YB’s later defended their PWG Tag Team Titles against Castagnoli and Hero.
