The Young Bucks are arguably one of the best tag teams in the world today. Over the past decade, they are attributed for elevating tag team wrestling to new heights. In fact, very few tag teams have been able to garner the same amount of popularity and fanfare that The Young Bucks have been able to generate just by wrestling on the independent circuits.
When fans talk about the Mt. Rushmore of tag team wrestling, The Young Bucks have to be in the conversation. During a recent episode of his FTR podcast, Dax Harwood said he believes The Young Bucks should be on the Mt. Rushmore of Tag Team Wrestling.
“There’s no taking away if I were going to put together a Mount Rushmore of tag teams, I would put The Young Bucks on there. I would have them right up there because they have defined a generation of tag team wrestling. They also completely changed a style of tag team wrestling too. Not a style that Cash and I adopted just because that is not my cup of tea. Also not my forte.
I couldn’t do half the sh*t, a quarter of the sh*t they do. They’re incredible at what they do, but they did change the perception of tag team wrestling. They changed the way tag team wrestling is formatted. All the differences that we may have had in the past from 2016 through 2022, I can’t take away the fact that they should be on a Mount Rushmore of tag team wrestling, and that’s going to get some people mad at me, but let’s just hope they keep downloading.”
This topic will generate a lot of opinions because there were a lot of great tag team who wrestled in the business that it would be hard to just pick four. However, given the impact Matt and Nick Jackson have had on the pro wrestling business, it will be hard not to include then, stay tuned to Ringside News for more.
