During the recent interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks discussed a wide variety of topics such as the record breaking run of New Day, their upcoming feud with the Hardys and more.
Matt says the Young Bucks would have loved to have faced The New Day during their record-breaking run with the WWE Tag Belts, but he's not so sure they would have had the chance to get a real good feud out of it. And of course, there's just one man in the WWE who makes that determination, and he has the final say.
"It all depends on how one man perceives you. We could've just been more fodder for them. Or we could've gotten a big program out of it," said Matt. "Who knows, and we'll never know. I do know that I'd love to one day work with them, and I know many people would as well. They're so talented and I'm sure we'd have great chemistry."
There's another legendary tag team that the Young Bucks have been teasing a future match with--The Hardys. And according to Matt, their match might just happen at House Hardy.
"We plan to visit the Hardy Compound this year. The Hardys-Bucks needs to happen on a large stage. It's one of the last money matches left."
When asked who the greatest tag team in Ring of Honor is, Matt had an answer immediately.
"Without question, (The Briscoe Brothers) are the greatest team in ROH history. They've continuously reinvented themselves. Somehow, they're just as over as they've ever been. Man, they're so good. So real. People will always love them."
2016 got a bad rap as one of the worst years ever for a lot of people, but according to the Young Bucks, Matt said it was a pretty great year, actually.
"2016 was the most money we've ever made in wrestling," said Matt. "We feel like we had the most quality matches we've ever had in our careers, and we did a lot to push both The Elite and Young Bucks brand. Our 'Being The Elite' series is getting more popular. We feel like we've gotten more eyeballs on Ring of Honor and New Japan."
Matt also talked about being proud of their performance this year, working matches and more. You can read the full interview here.
