Matt Jackson had a good night at NJPW Dominion.
At New Japan Pro Wrestling Dominion, the Young Bucks had one of the biggest nights of their careers as they won the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship by beating EVIL and SANADA. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks said the win was something he and his brother and tag team partner Nick Jackson have wanted for a while.
“It was a major goal of ours because it was one of the last boxes to check off on our checklist. We knew all along we were the best, but sometimes you need to physically prove it to the naysayers, so this is further proof of our legacy that we’ll one day leave behind,” said Matt Jackson.
On the same night, the Young Bucks' friend and stable mate Kenny Omega won the IWGP Heavyweight Championship by ending Kazuchika Okada's historic reign. Matt Jackson said he was very entertained by the match.
“Kenny and Okada are both all-time performers, and their matches will go down in history. The callbacks to the earlier matches, and the brilliant sequences of counters for counters, had me on the edge of my seat. Wrestling is a universal language. Kenny learned to connect with people of a different race because he tells stories that anyone can understand,” said Matt Jackson.
