The Young Bucks On If They Watched NXT’s Premiere On USA Network


Matt and Nick Jackson have spoken about whether they watched NXT's premiere on USA Network this past Wednesday.

With NXT premiering this past week on USA Network and All Elite Wrestling (AEW) gearing up for their debut on TNT on October 2nd, some might wonder how closely the two promotions are monitoring one another.

In an interview with talkSPORT, Matt and Nick Jackson spoke about NXT‘s debut as well as Triple H‘s recent comments regarding NXT‘s roster.

Nick admitted that he watched some of the premiere because of the people he knows in the promotion, calling it a “fun show.”

“Matt and I, we have a lot of friends there. Candice LeRae, we have a history with so I was happy for her,” Nick said. “She was in the first match in the four-way and she did great, so I was happy for her.”

Regarding the shows going head-to-head, his brother Matt added, “I’m rooting for them, though. I want them to have a good show. Ours is just going to be better.”

The Young Bucks then turned their attention to a previous interview with Triple H. During that interview,’ The Game’ shared that he wouldn’t want to trade anyone on his NXT roster for anyone else in the world. The Jackson brothers found this statement funny because, as Nick puts it “Like, come on…we know you wanted us.”

Matt then 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.”

The Young Bucks are scheduled to face off against Private Party in the AEW Tag Team Tournament on October 9th.
