Matt: “When you’re at a stage in your career, it’s like – we were talking about this yesterday, like I got married in 2008 and Nick was my best man and he did a best man speech and he told me ‘alright Matt, I gotta get out of here. I got a show.'”
Nick: “I had an indie show to go to.”
Matt: “And I didn’t bat an eyelash. I said ‘of course you do.'”
Aubrey: “No cause it makes sense.”
Matt: “I said, ‘go do your thing.’ It’s not about the money at that point.
Aubrey: “You saw the wedding it’s the important thing.”
Matt: “It’s I could get a big break tonight, I could have a big match. I could get more buzz for us and our brand I’m gonna do it and I said, ‘yeah go do your thing. I’ll take it from here.’ When you’re at that point in your career you’ll do anything.”
Nick: “You’ll sacrifice everything.”
Matt and Nick Jackson have a great understanding of what you need to do to succeed in wrestling. This, of course, is evident by their successful careers in ROH, NJPW and currently AEW.
