The Young Bucks stand in rare company when it comes to the business side of the industry. They are also not everyone’s cup of tea, but Nick and Matt Jackson have proven their worth. They are also no strangers to New Japan Pro Wrestling, as the duo competed in Japan for many years, winning numerous tag team titles during their time there. Matt Jackson is also sure The Young Bucks will return to NJPW.

Matt and Nick Jackson competed at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, but they haven’t wrestled in an NJPW ring since Wrestle Kingdom 13 in January 2019. Due to this, fans always wondered when the brothers would return to NJPW.

Prior to their days as part of the Bullet Club, The Young Bucks made a name for themselves in NJPW as one of the best tag teams in the promotion, constantly producing amazing matches.

The Young Bucks were also initially set for Wrestle Kingdom 17 appearance. While speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Matt and Nick Jackson talked about Wrestle Kingdom 17 and noted that they got a “fantastic offer” to wrestle and accompany Omega to the ring.


“We were actually asked to wrestle and be in Kenny’s corner. But Matt and I had vacation plans that week. Maybe next year. Who knows?

We got a fantastic offer. Personally, the timing and the situation didn’t fit for us. I’m sure one day you’ll see us back in a NJPW ring.

We will have to wait and see whether The Young Bucks ever return to NJPW in the future. Until then, The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega are content with competing for the AEW Trios Tag Team Championships.
