The Young Bucks defended the AEW World Tag Team Championships in a three-way match with Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks and Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee in the main event of last night’s Dynamite. It was a high-flying and fast-paced affair that saw a surprising title change as Lee and Swerve captured the titles. Unfortunately, it does not look like everyone got out of the match unscathed.

Bryan Alvarez noted that Matt Jackson was injured when Keith Lee and Hobbs gave him a routine vertical suplex. After that, Jackson did not take very many bumps. Despite the apparent injury, the match continued. Dave Meltzer discussed Matt’s ongoing neck issues on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio.

“The thing with Matt, though, is that Matt has had neck issues, I mean just from the wear and tear. It’s one of those things where you get hurt on a basic move but it’s because you’ve been doing so much stuff over the last…

He’s probably worked a very bump-heavy style for, what, eighteen years? Seventeen years? Something like that, however many years it’s been. It’s been a lot of years. So, I think we’ve seen that with a lot of the injuries, that they’re on basic stuff, but they’re on body parts that are very worn out.


One of the matches with Pentagon and Fenix, I believe it was, I think it was the really good one. Not the most recent one, but the one before. It was like a jump off of something into a Canadian Destroyer. It was definitely a Canadian Destroyer where he was hurt. But, I mean, it wasn’t like serious… I don’t want to say ‘Not serious,’ he was hurt, but it’s not like he missed any time or anything like that, but the neck was hurt, and you know, I mean, his neck has hurt him for years at times.”

There has not been an update on Matt Jackson’s condition after the match. Hopefully, it is just a stinger and he won’t have any serious issues. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more on Matt’s status as the story continues to unfold.
