The Young Bucks are arguably the most popular tag team not associated with WWE. Matt and Nick Jackson have showcased their skills around the world. The brothers were instrumental in setting up All Elite Wrestling in 2019, but nothing lasts forever.
The Bucks squared off against AAA and ROH World Tag Team Champions FTR for the dual championships earlier this month on Dynamite. The four put on a tag team wrestling clinic in front of a packed Agganis Arena.
The brothers did an interview with Sports Illustrated a week removed from their match against Dash Harwood and Cash Wheeler. Matt talked about how much he’s left in the tank when it comes to big matches.
“I don’t get too nervous nowadays unless it’s a big pay-per-view match, and I had those same nerves going into this match,” Matt says. “When it was over and the crowd peaked, just like how we orchestrated, I felt a sense of pride and relief.
“And I’ll tell you this—we’re never ones to talk much about injuries or how we’re feeling. People just assume we’re the forever-young Bucks and we don’t get hurt, that we always chew gum and bounce around like we’re invincible. But I don’t know how many big matches like that I’ve got left in me. I’m definitely closer to the end than the beginning.”
The champions defeated the challenger after Harwood and Wheeler hit a Big Rig on Matt Jackson. FTR arrived this past Wednesday on Dynamite to confront reDRagon. Here’s a clip from their match with the Bucks.
