During the premiere edition of AEW: All Access, The Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson, spoke candidly about their feelings regarding the backstage altercation with CM Punk that led to Tony Khan stripping them and Kenny Omega of the AEW trios titles.

Matt Jackson stated that it was weird watching from home after the incident, as they had worked hard to build their brand up, only to have it all come crashing down. Nick Jackson added that what happened would be a black eye on their career, probably forever, and that they didn’t want to talk about it. Matt also revealed that vacating the titles had greatly affected his mental health.

Matt: “It felt really weird watching from home because you worked so hard to get to where you were to build your brand up, to be where it’s at, and then all of a sudden, it’s all just gone down.”

Nick: “What happened is definitely going to be a black eye on our career, probably forever. And we don’t want to talk about it.”


Matt: “When we had to vacate the titles, it affected greatly affected my mental health. You’ve worked so hard for so long to build up your brand, to be something. I hope that we can continue to build our legacy, but I don’t know if our career will ever the same.”
