Recently, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) announced that The Young Bucks have been added to the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship match at Wrestle Kingdom 13. This decision caused quite the bit of backlash from fans, who were frustrated that The Young Bucks were added despite hot having competed in the World Tag League tournament.
Initially, champions Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa were scheduled to face tournament winners EVIL & SANADA. Now, however, The Young Bucks have now been added to the match. The Young Bucks took to Instagram to respond to the feedback fans have been giving for their addition.
Nick Jackson explained that their addition into the match was not their decision, and told fans to enjoy it while they can because they don’t have much time left in NJPW:
“For the record, if putting us in a tag title match “doesn’t make sense” that’s not our fault because we just try and do our job and to make every tag match we’re in the best tag match you’ll see. Try to enjoy us while we’re still here. We don’t have much time left!”
