Matt Jackson speaks about his love of tag team wrestling.
Matt and Nick Jackson who together, make up the duo known as The Young Bucks have been tag team partners for life and the two brothers are currently running their All Elite Wrestling company along with Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega and Tony Khan. Tonight, AEW will present their Fight For The Fallen show from Jacksonville, Florida and there are five tag team matches slated for the show.
The Young Bucks have won tag team gold in PWG, ROH, NJPW, AAA, House Of Glory and many more promotions within the wrestling world. Matt and Nick are taking it upon themselves to spotlight tag team wrestling and during an interview with Mirror Sport, Matt stated that he feels singles wrestling cannot compare to tag teaM wrestling when it comes to the drama of a match.
"I don't think that singles matches come close to having the amount of drama that a good tag team match can have – it's not even close." Matt said. "The psychology and the stories you can tell with four guys instead of just two… it kind of grates me that tag team wrestling hasn't been at the forefront or the main event in wrestling – at least popular wrestling on television – for about 20 years. It's crazy to me, because you can get so much more mileage out of it than you can a singles match. I appreciate the little nuances and the little psychological games you can put into a good tag team match."
All Elite Wrestling will have a tag team title tournament to kick off their weekly television series and at Fight For The Fallen, three teams will have an opportunity to earn a first round bye in that tournament.
