Nick Jackson tested positive for COVID-19 in September.
Revealing the news on an Instagram story, the Young Bucks member shared his experience with the coronavirus and how he is just finally back to full fitness. Here is what he said:
"Crazy to think there's still COVID deniers out there in the world. I had a pretty bad case of COVID in early September that kept me bed ridden for nearly 3 weeks. I couldn't taste or smell for 2 and a half months. At one point my whole body had hives on it and my doctor said that it was definitely from COVID. Matt had to do the majority of the work in matches once I returned safely because I couldn't catch my breath. My cardio is finally back but it took months to finally feel like myself again. Let's protect each other and wear masks."
The Young Bucks competed at All Out on September 5, 2020, defeating Jurassic Express, but didn't wrestle again until October 21, a full month and a half later. Matt and Nick Jackson would eventually go on to become AEW Tag Team Champions, defeating FTR at Full Gear.
Night One of AEW's New Year's Smash culminated with The Young Bucks trying to reason with Kenny Omega after he, Karl Anderson, and Doc Gallows laid waste to Rey Fenix and Jon Moxley. Fans quickly found out whose side they were on as they saved Omega with a superkick. The five former Bullet Club members hit the "Too Sweet" pose in the middle of the ring to close the show.
