Nick Jackson has revealed that he was initially frustrated over the AEW Blood and Guts Match in July 2023 being cut short.
The match saw The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson), Kenny Omega, Hangman Adam Page and Kota Ibushi taking on Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta), Konosuke Takeshita and PAC.
Highlights from the match, which took place on the July 19 episode of AEW Dynamite, can be seen below this news story.
Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks recently spoke his frustration over the match on the Swerve City podcast, saying:
“There are some moments, I’ll be honest, I want to say it was Blood & Guts, we had to take the match home quick.
“I look at Matt and Hangman, ‘Dangit! That wasn’t the best match. I wanted it to be the best match.’
“Matt is like, ‘are we all healthy? Can we walk?’ ‘Yeah. Oh, you’re right.'”
Matt Jackson would weigh in on the discussion, adding:
“I’m like, ‘Who cares? I’m going to Hawaii.'”
Nick would look back at his mindset, stating:
“Even I get lost sometimes in the moment, ‘I wanted it to go this way, but I’m healthy, whatever.'”
Reminding Nick of what they’d achieved during the match, Matt went on to say:
“I remember, I was like, ‘Did you try your best?’ ‘Yeah.’ ‘I did too.'”
Nick was very much thinking in the moment, though, recounting:
“That was in the ring, not backstage. The bell rang, we’re raising our hands, and I’m like, ‘Dangit.'”
The pair would share their thoughts after the match, though, with Matt saying:
“Later that night, we’re eating Wendy’s, just the two of us, watching the match back, and we were popping for everything. At the end of the hour, we’re like, ‘that was friggin’ great.'”
This led to Nick conceding:
“Yeah. I was like, ‘what was I mad about?'”
In the wake of the match, Matt and Nick went on vacation and returned for AEW Dynamite 200 on August 8.
It was recently reported that the pair, along with Omega and Page, had signed new multi-year deals with AEW.
