Young Bucks talk ‘undeniable’ success, facing Sting in his final match

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, the Young Bucks (Matthew and Nicholas Jackson) talked about their success over the past few years.

Such success has come with its fair amount of detractors, particularly as the Bucks have taken on a more villainous role as of late, to which Matthew responds:

“Our success is undeniable. One day, we will get our flowers, but unfortunately, they will be at our gravesides. When you are cast as a villain, you must accept that role. But we know what we’ve done–we lived it. Hate our style of wrestling? Hate the way we look? Hate the way we talk? That’s fine. But we made a lot of people a lot of money. I bathe in the tears of yesterday’s broke wrestling personalities, whose only content is talking about what I did last, in my backyard lazy river.”

The pair went on to address their match against Darby Allin and Sting for the AEW World Tag Team Championship at Revolution, an event that marks the latter’s final match in his tenured career in the business.

On the opportunity that arises from facing the Icon, Nicholas states:

“It’s a crazy rollercoaster ride we’ve been on the last 20 years. I remember watching Nitro, seeing Sting come down from the rafters to attack the NWO, and how mad I’d be that he’d always beat up Hogan. So to see him still performing at a high level all these years later is amazing. For Matthew and me to be his last match means a lot. It’s the biggest match of our career, and it’s a moment I didn’t think would happen.”

Matthew goes on to add that their connection with Sting dates back to when the pair met Sting in TNA, when the pair competed as Generation Me.

AEW Revolution takes place Sunday, March 3, emanating from the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.
