Nick Jackson Reveals Blood & Guts Match Got ‘Wrapped Up Quickly,’ Expresses Initial Frustration

On July 19th, a significant event unfolded when The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson) joined forces with Kenny Omega, Hangman Page, and Kota Ibushi to confront Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, and Wheeler Yuta), Konosuke Takeshita, and PAC in an electrifying Blood & Guts encounter.

The match concluded with The Golden Elite emerging as victors, marking the culmination of their intense rivalry with the Blackpool Combat Club.

However, the celebratory atmosphere was abruptly curtailed as the broadcast of AEW Dynamite came to a close. Notably, a post-show segment featuring a reconciliatory speech between BCC and The Elite was left unaired.

During a conversation with Swerve Strickland & Monteasy on Swerve City, The Young Bucks revealed that time constraints necessitated the trimming of certain parts of the match. While Nick Jackson initially felt frustrated by the situation, Matt Jackson played a crucial role in helping him come to terms with the circumstances.

Nick: 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: I’m like, ‘Who cares? I’m going to Hawaii.’ 

Nick: Even I get lost sometimes in the moment, ‘I wanted it to go this way, but I’m healthy, whatever.’

Matt: I remember, I was like, ‘Did you try your best?’ ‘Yeah.’ ‘I did too.’ 

Nick: That was in the ring, not backstage. The bell rang, we’re raising our hands, and I’m like, ‘Dangit.’ 

Matt: 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.’

Nick: Yeah. I was like, ‘what was I mad about?’
