An AEW wrestler had an interesting reaction to the latest Dave Meltzer praise towards The Young Bucks.
In the main event of AEW Dynamite on January 10th, WWE & TNA Hall of Famer Sting & Darby Allin defeated Powerhouse Hobbs & Konosuke Takeshita in a Tornado Tag Team Match. The match ended after Sting delivered a Scorpion Death Drop from a wall and they went crashing about 10 feet below through a table.
After the match, The Young Bucks duo of Matt & Nick Jackson appeared for the first time in about two months. The former AEW Tag Team Championship brothers stared at Sting & Allin from a distance while the announcers wondered if The Young Bucks would face Sting & Allin in Sting’s last match ever at AEW Revolution on March 5th.
Following a comment from the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer that over the last 20 years, “no tag team is better than The Young Bucks at carrying people to good matches,” some people took issue with that claim.
AEW’s Mark Briscoe tweeted a reply without a comment as if to say his Briscoe Brothers tag team is certainly worthy of such a claim.

It’s well known that the Bucks are close enough with Meltzer that they named a move after the wrestling journalist, which seems to upset some fans as well.
Sadly, Mark Briscoe won’t be able to team with his brother Jay Briscoe again since Jay died in a car accident in January 2023.
The Young Bucks Returned To AEW TV Early
It was also reported that the Jackson Brothers planned to stay off television for even longer, but because Sting wanted his retirement match to be against The Young Bucks, AEW felt that it was time for the Bucks to return.
Matt Hardy of AEW also recently spoke about The Young Bucks and seemed to take issue with fans who don’t like the team. Hardy believes they are “truly amazing” professional wrestlers.
