In a new interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Matthew and Nicholas Jackson talk about their relationship with Jack Perry and reveal that it was only a few days prior to Dynasty that they saw him for the first time after his incident with CM Punk at AEW All In.

Matthew Jackson also reveals that they gave Jack Perry advice on how to succeed in Japan, noting that they view him as a brother.

“We kept an eye on him the entire time he was gone and helped him navigate the situation–a familiar one that we had also gone through,” said Matt Jackson. “We also talked him down a few times. We gave him advice on how to succeed in Japan. It felt like he was our little brother. We saw him for the first time since All In, a couple days prior to the pay-per-view. We met him in our private jet, and talked endlessly the entire flight. We let him get it all out of his system, but assured him that this would be a fresh start. I was so thrilled to hear and see the groundswell for him when he appeared for the first time. It was like a rebirth for him.”

It was also revealed that it was Jack Perry's idea to wear a Sting mask in order to run into the ring during the aforementioned Ladder Match.

“We had just wrestled Sting in his retirement match, so that was perfect,” said Nick Jackson. “We were super proud and happy for Jack. He deserved a big moment and a big reaction, and he got both of those things in one moment.”

Now, The Young Bucks and Jack Perry will come together with Kazuchika Okada to fight FTR, Darby Allin, and Bryan Danielson at AEW Double or Nothing 2024 in Anarchy in the Arena.
