AEW Dynamite last night kicked off with The Young Bucks and SCU vs The Acclaimed and The Hybrid2 in an eight-man tag team match. The Bucks and SCU ended a good match with the Best Meltzer Ever to emerge victoriously.
During the match, Jack Evans attempted a 630 Senton to Nick Jackson but the AEW world Tag team champion got his knees up. Nick was then seen to be limping after this and it was noted that he didn’t attempt to superkick any of his opponents during this main event.
Bryan Alvarez, who works for Wrestling Observer Radio claims that Jackson thought that he might have broken his leg during this incident which can clearly explain why he was seen limping. Here is what Alvarez said about the incident.
“Story I heard is that in the opening match, Jack [Evans] went for the 630 or whatever and Nick got his knees up. but Jack landed so hard on his legs that Nick thought he broke one of his legs. So, if you watch the rest of the match, Nick’s doing the rest of the match thinking his leg might be broken. And he came out at the end of the show and he did the whole angle, and he’s trying not to limp and didn’t throw the Superkick because his leg hurt. Hopefully, he’s alright.”
This is likely to have altered many of the moves that were supposed to happen in the match and it’s fair to say considering that Nick Jackson believed he might have broken his leg the match went as well as it could possibly have done and came to a conclusion that appeared natural.
