The Young Bucks haven’t forgotten about those who were there for them along the way. Now Nick and Matt Jackson are EVPs of AEW, and they can pay it forward.
Matt Jackson jumped on Instagram and he shared a story about the first time they met PAC. It was 2008, and the Young Bucks were getting to Japan for the first time. PAC was already established in Dragon Gate, and he welcomed them with open arms. They haven’t forgotten about that.
In 2008, we traveled to Japan for the first time to tour with Dragon Gate. We were culture shocked & homesick but PAC took great care of us. He showed us around, taught us the culture and made sure we were comfortable. We’ve never forgotten this.
Pac couldn’t come back to the USA for months during the pandemic. That entire time he remained at home in quarantine, he was also getting paid. AEW took care of PAC, and it’s likely that his kindness in 2008 might have had a lot to do with that.
