The Young Bucks is one of, if not the greatest tag team in all of wrestling, and they are the current AEW World Tag Team Champions. After being a babyface team all throughout their wrestling careers, the Young Bucks recently transitioned into being a heel team when they turned on Moxley and joined Omega.
Speaking with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, Nick Jackson commented on criticism that the promotion has too many factions. Nick Jackson of the Young Bucks said that New Japan Pro Wrestling has been booking factions for more than 40 years and they’re still around. Nick Jackson also said he sees the argument as the fans are used to one, two, or three stables at one time in a company, but it is easier to book angles and it is easy to get more people involved with different groups, that is why AEW has a lot of factions and it has clearly worked.
This is what Nick Jackson said:
“New Japan Pro Wrestling has been booking factions for more than 40 years, and they’re still around.” “I see the argument, but I think North American fans have never seen this many at one time. They are used to one, two, or three stables in a company.”
“It’s easier to book angles. It’s easy to get more people involved with different groups. If you’re not aligned in a stable, you’re alone, and that’s hard to book sometimes. That’s why we have a lot of factions. It has clearly worked.”
Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks then said fans are fickle and that they are only with you when you’re underground, but as soon as you go mainstream, they start turning on you.
Jackson also said it’s really toxic and that’s the reason they deleted their Twitter account over a year ago. Matt then said if the fans don’t like him, that’s fine as he is going to make them not like him even more.
This is what Matt Jackson said:
“Fans are fickle.” “They are only with you when you’re underground. As soon as you go mainstream, they start turning on you. True Young Bucks fans will always be our fans, but there are ones who come and go. A lot of that we see on the internet now.”
“It’s really toxic. That’s the reason we deleted our Twitter account over a year ago. But it’s fun now to bring our frustrations out. If you don’t like me, that’s fine. I’m going to make you not like me even more.”
