The Young Bucks – ‘We’ve Never Had Aspirations Of Singles Runs’



Matt & Nick Jackson have become one of the most successful tag teams of all time and will remain a tag team for years to come.

During a recent appearance on the “Swerve City Podcast,” the Bucks discussed their lengthy careers and not pursuing careers as single competitors. Nick said,

“Honestly, man, we’ve never had aspirations of being singles wrestlers, so I think that is a big thing for it. We always aspired to be a tag team. We saw The Hardys do it most of their career and we were like, ‘Oh, maybe we can do the career with each other.’ And it honestly makes it so much easier traveling with him. I don’t want to do a show without him. I don’t want to get on a plane by myself, things like that.”

Matt Jackson added that it wasn’t long after they were teaming together that promotions took notice of their skills as a duo. He said,

“When we first started our careers, we were singles wrestlers. In the very, very beginning. Like ’04, ’05. I think it was just one of those happenstance moments where the promoter booked us as a tag team and it clicked. Everybody started wanting us as a tag team. We were kind of against it at first. We were like, ‘No, I wanna wear red and call myself Mr. Replay, he wants to wear blue and call himself Slick Nick. We’re not the Young Bucks.'”

The Young Bucks are two-time AEW World Tag Champions, two-time AEW Trios Champions (with Kenny Omega,) and have held tag gold in AAA, NJPW, PWG, and other promotions.
