On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, AEW Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks squared off against the Sydal brothers. The Young Bucks certainly did a very interesting move during the match.
Matt Jackson hit a low blow on Mike Sydal, which was a very obvious nod to Mortal Kombat character Johnny Cage. While many fans appreciated the move, it seems a former WWE referee didn’t share the same sentiments.
While speaking on his Reffin’ Rant video series on Twitter, Korderas discussed The Young Bucks’ recent match on AEW Dynamite. He criticized the Bucks’ methods of distracting the referee and Matt Jackson’s low blow, which he felt lasted way too long.
“Look, I like The Young Bucks as heels. I thought they showed a lot of promise in that, the overconfidence, the cocky attitude. Cheating at the end was fine but distracting the referee like that and giving the low blow and just, like, freezing there and holding it and looking at the camera, for like ten seconds? Way too long! Heels don’t cheat like that! Heels cheat quickly, get it done, get it over with. Other than that, I enjoyed their heel tactics, let’s put it that way.”
Perhaps Korderas didn’t quite get the reference or he simply didn’t care. Regardless, The Young Bucks will continue to make pop culture references in their matches and that is unlikely to change.
