An AEW star has revealed they left another promotion to wrestle The Young Bucks.
After bouncing around different promotions, Matt Sydal made his return to IMPACT Wrestling and spent two years with the company.
In 2019, Sydal left IMPACT and made his way to All Elite Wrestling the following year.
“That’s why I went to AEW. That’s why I left Impact because I wanted to go to AEW because I wanted to wrestle The Young Bucks again. I was really lucky. I got to have a match with me and my brother Mike against The Young Bucks. Mike and I also wrestled the Lucha Bros.”
Sydal continued on to discuss how his brother Mike got hurt during the Jericho cruise and stunted their momentum, saying:
“I mean, we had a string of great matches, and then, unfortunately, Mike got hurt. He hurt his back on the Jericho cruise. We wrestled four nights in a row. It was crazy.”
“But yeah, so I mean, coming back I was working with Dante Martin a lot, of Top Flight, Dante and Darius so you know, I mean, I love everything that’s going on in AEW. I watch every single match like a maniac.”
“I am all in with AEW, but the beautiful thing is that AEW lets us share what we love with everyone around the world.”
Matt Sydal last competed for All Elite Wrestling on the October 24 edition of AEW Dark in a tag team win with Dante Martin.
