AEW superstars Matt and Nick Jackson, better known as the Young Bucks, recently spoke to Hollywood Live to talk all things pro-wrestling, including how they hope to soon have the classic ice cream bars for AEW and what the last year on TNT has been like for them. Highlights can be found below.
Says they want AEW ice cream bars:
I told her that I would love to have some type of AEW ice cream bar. I remember fondly in the summer when the ice cream man would come, and I would get the Good Humor Hulk Hogan ice cream bar. I don’t know how much of a possibility it would be, but I put the idea out there, at least.
Reflects on their fires episode of Dynamite in Washington DC:
Oh man, it feels just like yesterday that we were in DC, and the whole world was buzzing on what this whole show was going to look like and feel like. Now, we are in a different world, but back then, when we were performing in front of at least 12,000 people, I don’t think I ever felt so nervous in my entire life.
How live television is still new for them:
Nick and I never really had experience with running a live television show or being on a live television show. I mean, we had our run at Impact Wrestling about ten years ago and did a couple live television shows, but nothing like this. Nothing with this magnitude and with the entire world watching us. I think right out of the gate, when we did our first show and got it done, I felt so good. Once we got the first one in, now I was ready for it. And it is crazy that it has been a year, and now that we are in a different world.
How AEW excels in tag team wrestling:
We have now displayed, for a year now on TV, what tag team wrestling could look like. I think tag team wrestling is one of the main things that AEW has, and that is in a large part of the amazing talented wrestlers that we have. I am just really happy. I am sure that things could be better — I think everyone could say that with the way things — but I am happy what we have made of the situation.
How talent in AEW has improved working without fans:
I would say, for our young talent, it is actually helping them get better in the ring. The nerves aren’t there as much. If there is a sold-out crowd of six to ten thousand people, these younger wrestlers get scared and nervous, and naturally so. But in front of relatively no one, it feels like training, it feels like they are back at wrestling school. They have been able to try different things, new things, and get comfortable in the ring. So that has been the biggest positive in what is going on right now.
