Young Bucks On If They Watched NXT On USA, Talks HHH & More

Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT recently interviewed The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) on a number of topics including NXT’s move to the USA Network, if they watched the show and WWE COO Triple H saying that he wouldn’t trade anyone on his NXT roster for anyone else in the world.

The Young Bucks was first asked if they would like to start their rivalry with NXT from the very beginning or if they would prefer to be able to do their own thing.

This is what Nick Jackson said:

“Ah man [laughs]. We all knew in AEW, we all knew they [WWE] were going to make that exact move, it was just a matter of what channel they were going to choose. So we were prepared for them to do this because it’s Vince McMahon. He’s done this for years and years! He’s tried to kill territories his whole career so what he’s trying to do is kill us from the start. But, you know what? I feel like it’s not going to happen this time around because wrestling fans need this and wrestling fans know that they need this. If it’s 20 years since we had a real, true alternative, I feel fans finally understand that and they know that and feel the momentum. I feel like we’re ready for it.”

This is what Matt Jackson said:

“I really think it will bring more attention to us and it’s going to make their product better, our product better because they’re competing head-to-head with us and they have to put on a better show.”

The Young Bucks were then asked if they watched NXT’s debut show on the USA Network.

This is what Nick Jackson said:

“I watched some of it. Matt and I, we have a lot of friends there. Candice LeRae, we have a history with so I was happy for her. She was in the first match in the four-way and she did great, so I was happy for her. It was a fun show, but in ten weeks from now, those fans might get tired. It happened with Impact. It took a while, but some of those shows at the Universal Studios. [Laughs] Those crowds were dead. It’s definitely possible that this happens to this NXT audience because it’s the same formula.”

This is what Matt Jackson said:

“I’m rooting for them, though. I want them to have a good show. Ours is just going to be better.”

The Young Bucks were then asked of their reaction to WWE COO Triple H saying that he wouldn’t trade anyone on his NXT roster for anyone else in the world. They found that laughable as they said that Triple H wanted them as well as the entire Elite before they signed with AEW.

This is what Nick Jackson said:

“That made me laugh. Like, come on…we know you wanted us.”

This is what Matt Jackson said:

“A year ago you were trying to get us all [in The Elite]! A year ago you were trying to get every one of us to come and work for you, so, that’s cool. You can say whatever. Don’t act like there was no interest in us and you wouldn’t trade for us because I know for a fact, you would. You know what I mean?”
