AEW’s Matt Jackson “Bathes In The Tears Of Yesterday’s Broke Wrestling Personalities”

AEW EVP Matthew Jackson claims The Young Bucks have “made a lot of people a lot of money.”

Ever since they rose to prominence on the independent scene and in promotions like New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor, The Young Bucks have been a divisive tag team. While many praise the pair’s matches for their innovation, there are also those who dislike their attitude and think they’re “killing the business” with their style.

In recent weeks, the Bucks have reveled in the negativity, taking on new heel personas and playing into all of the criticisms they have received over the years. In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, the brothers spoke about their detractors.

Matt Jackson believes they will eventually “get their flowers,” but it might not be until they aren’t around to receive them. In a message to former wrestlers who have become podcast hosts and content creators, Jackson says without the Bucks, they wouldn’t have anything to talk about.

“Our success is undeniable. One day, we will get our flowers, but unfortunately, they will be at our gravesides. When you are cast as a villain, you must accept that role. But we know what we’ve done–we lived it.

“Hate our style of wrestling? Hate the way we look? Hate the way we talk? That’s fine. But we made a lot of people a lot of money. I bathe in the tears of yesterday’s broke wrestling personalities, whose only content is talking about what I did last, in my backyard lazy river.”

AEW Star Matt Hardy Praises The Young Bucks

The Young Bucks have often been compared to The Hardy Boyz for their high-flying ability and unique offence, and the two teams have clashed on more than one occasion. Recently, Matt Hardy praised Nick and Matt Jackson for their newfound heel characters, saying he is “really proud” of what the pair have been able to do.

The Young Bucks will be in action at Revolution on March 3rd when they challenge Sting and Darby Allin for the AEW Tag Team Championships in The Icon’s last ever match.
