The Young Bucks are truly incomparable when it comes to the business side of the industry. They are also not everyone’s cup of tea for a good reason. They were suspended from AEW for a couple of months due to their involvement in the AEW All Out brawl. This was tough for fans, and it seems those two months were very hard on Nick and Matt Jackson as well.

After a long hiatus, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks made their return to AEW television at AEW Full Gear, where they faced Death Triangle for the Trios Championships. They were not able to become the new champions, despite their best efforts. Now, a best of 7 series between the two teams is set to kick off at Dynamite this week.

While speaking on Being The Elite, the Young Bucks went into detail regarding their return to the company. The two admitted that the two-month hiatus was the hardest time of their lives.

“We’re officially back. We, however, have been technically back, backstage for a few weeks. Now, we’ve been on-screen, we’re wrestled, we’re back. Being The Elite is back. Everything is back to reality.


It didn’t feel like we were officially back until [AEW Full Gear]. We were around for four weeks, but it didn’t feel like it. There was something missing. That something missing was us performing live. We did that, we scratched that itch. We’re back. I’ve had anxiety thinking about it. Didn’t know if I could still perform at a high level.

I was waking up in cold sweats, I haven’t been sleeping. People don’t understand because we haven’t been able to talk about it. This has been…two of the hardest months of my life. I know for you [Nick] too. Here we are, we got through it, you just never know what’s going to happen until you do it. To hear the support and hear and see how happy a lot of people were to see us, that meant the world to us and Kenny. It felt good. We’re going through the healing process right now. Last night [Full Gear] was a big step to get there. I feel good. We got to come out to a song we grew up listening to with our Dad. A song we almost didn’t get. We didn’t get it until the 11th hour. That was stressful. Getting that, it was the night before, we finally knew. Collectively, it was a crazy time. Now that it’s the end, I can almost sight relief at this point.”

The Elite entered the ring to “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas, something that they might use again in the future. We’ll have to see how they will be booked in the coming weeks.
