The Young Bucks and FTR finally went to war at Full Gear, and the Young Bucks achieved victory. They will not only get to challenge for those titles again, but they are now the current AEW World Tag Team Champions. Matt Jackson had quite a painful experience in the process.
Following their match, Matt Jackson spoke to the media, and he was asked about his injury status. He said it’s a real injury, and it’s not been a very easy year for him in paticular.
“It’s a very real injury that I’ve been dealing with, and it’s been a rough year for me. Like, I come back after all that time off when we were on lockdown and the first thing I do is break my rib when I jumped out of the dugout, and I dealt with that for a second. That sucked. Then we did that falls count anywhere match with The Butcher and The Blade and I decided it would be a good idea to jump off the entrance area and do a diving elbow through a table, where there is only concrete, by the way.”
“For a while I was walking around at home, and having a hard time. Kind of, hobbling around. I thought I might’ve had a hairline fracture in my fibula, or something. My amazing wife noticed I was having a hard time getting around, and she had Dr. Sampson order me an MRI to see what was going on. Turns out it wasn’t my fibula, but actually my soft tissue. And it was the back of my knee. It was my MCL. It was diagnosed that after looking at the MRI, I had a slight tear.”
We’ll have to see how long the Young Bucks can hold onto their titles. They plan on having a long and fruitful run with the belts, but FTR are very likely going to be right at their heels vying for another shot.
