Matt Jackson Comments On Backstage Reaction To Sting’s AEW Debut


The Young Bucks made an appearance with the Living The Gimmick podcast

During the interview, the AEW Tag Team Champions talked about Sting’s debut on Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite. 

Here is what Matt Jackson had to say (H/T to WrestleZone):

“It felt really cool. There was one fun moment, he was hidden all day in his own trailer in the back, and when it was time to go, we have one of our guys from Atlas [security] leading him through the entire commonplace area to the [go position]. As he walks by, he’s just tunnel vision and he was going to just walk straight through to get to where he needed to get to and all of the boys and girls, their heads just started turning like it was The Exorcist. They were just like, ‘WHAT?!?!’ It was really fun to see everyone have a mark out moment like that, and when they did that and I saw the reaction to all of the talent, I knew that it was going to be an even bigger moment on television.

“We had about one thousand people out there yesterday, I knew it was going to be a huge moment. It was chilling, and it was done perfectly because it was so simple. Him just walking out to the ring and the way he did it with the snow, the music. It was so well done and it was so well-received back here. I haven’t even really had a chance to look on the internet but I can only imagine.”
