The Young Bucks describe what it feels to undergo COVID-19 testing right before they get ready for AEW shows.
On the latest episode of Being The Elite, Matt and Nick Jackson talk about AEW's COVID-19 testing and admit that it is terrifying to undergo testing due to what happens if they test positive, which is a two-week quarantine in Jacksonville, Florida, where AEW has been holding events for the past couple of weeks.
"We got tested [last week] and it took about 10 minutes and it is the most terrifying 10 minutes of our lives because if we test positive, that means we're stuck in Jacksonville for two weeks. So every time we get that negative, we high-five," Matt said.
"It's terrifying... Every time I kiss my kids and my wife good-bye, I say, 'Say a prayer so that I don't test positive.' It's terrifying to know, but that's the truth of what we're going through," Nick said.
Recently, Jacksonville issued an indoor face mask mandate and it only includes indoor events. Face masks will not be required outdoors, for anyone under 2 years old, for anyone with breathing problems or while at a table at a restaurant. City officials said beaches are included in the mandate and masks are required anywhere inside where people are unable to socially distance. AEW runs its events from Daily's Place in Jacksonville, FL. The venue is an outdoor amphitheater connected to TIAA Bank Field, which technically means AEW would be exempt from this mandate.
The July 1 episode of Dynamite was the first night of Fyter Fest with the second night of Fyter Fest taking place on July 8. The Young Bucks will team with FTR to take on the team of Lucha Bros, The Butcher and The Blade.
