The Young Bucks recently spoke with ESPN West Palm where they discussed potentially facing The Revival and how close they came to wrestling New Day.
On being surprised certain legends know who they are:
“Anytime a veteran like Chris Jericho comes to us, whether it be like two or three years ago when we first met him and worked with him, and he said, ‘oh, I know all about you guys. I’ve seen this or that.’ I go, ‘wait. What?’ That blows my mind because you’re the guy I grew up watching and I idolized, and I literally have his action figures in my sons room to this day,” Matt Jackson said. “And now I work with him. I remember, back a couple of years ago as well, when I first got to work with Rey Mysterio, and he was coming up to me and [went], ‘hey, let’s do that one spot you and your brother do’, and I go, ‘wait a minute. You watched us?’ That’s surreal.”
On possibly facing The Revival:
“For me, the obvious one whenever people talk about the dream match that never happened would be us and The Revival because I feel like there’s some real-life tension there, and I don’t know if it’s competitive or friendly or whatever it is,” Matt said. “There’s definitely something. There’s a competitive rivalry there. Talk about two teams that have polar opposites in styles, where I think it could be a fun style clash. I would love to have that match. That’s probably number one on my bucket list right now.”
On New Day vs The Elite being close to happening:
“I would say The Elite vs. The New Day because that was actually something that was close to actually happening at one point, but it’s just never happened,” Nick said. “I think if that six-man happened it would’ve tore the house down.”

WWE Hall Of Famer, Mick Foley, recently spoke with Inside The Ropes where he gave his honest thoughts about AEW so far as a company.
The Hardcore Legend discussed the mistakes he thinks that AEW has made, comparing the company to NXT.
“They’ve got an amazing talent roster, but with the exception of eight to ten guys, you’ve got a lot of guys who haven’t worked full-time for a promotion and haven’t had the chance to make mistakes in a smaller venue. I’m sure you will see the growth of the AEW characters as they go but in the meantime, you get to see some of the mistakes being made on live television,” he said. “Some of the guys have grown up yearning after the ‘this is awesome’ chant but haven’t had the experience being in angles that need to draw money. For guys of my era, there was a very real sense that if the angle wasn’t successful, you didn’t draw at the houses. There was no ancillary means of income. I’m not down on the guys but I think you’re seeing some inexperience when it comes to shooting angles and performing for the camera. It’s an admirable trait that they want to have the best match that they can, but every guy wanting to have the best match at every venue doesn’t necessarily lead to the best promotion. I think someone needs to reign some of these guys in. NXT’s advantage is their guys have been trained to work for the camera and having more seasoned stars and a dedicating team writing for them. In the end, it comes down to who has the ability to tell longterm stories and get the audience engaged.”
Foley also believes that AEW has rushed certain matches, where they could have built them up instead.
“I thought they rushed [Cody vs. Jericho], maybe they’re not showing the patience they need to. I would say Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega shouldn’t have had their first match in a wild; anything goes environment. But these are mistakes out of wanting to give people the absolute best product they can. I do think there should be somebody reigning in that enthusiasm.”

The Young Bucks recently spoke with the Miami Herald to promote the upcoming Chris Jericho cruise, revealing Nick Jackson has put together a lot of the card.
Certain matches from the crowd will be airing on AEW Dynamite next week, but many matches on the boat will be exclusive to the fans who are onboard. According to Matt Jackson, his brother has played a big role in getting everything together for these shows.
“Nick put together most of the card himself. I was just looking at the final card, Chris was going over it with us, and it’s loaded. Some of these matches, the only way you can see them is if you’re on the boat. They’re not going to be taped. You’ll never see some of these things. It’s really exclusive to the ship. You’re gonna be out in the middle of the ocean watching matches that nobody will ever see,” said Matt.

The Nightmare Collective leader, Brandi Rhodes has revealed on social media that she will not be taking part in the upcoming Chris Jericho cruise.
While Brandi also admitted that she was set to leave the cruise early to deliver a keynote speech at the NATPE Miami Marketplace & Conference, she will now sadly not be attending at all.
The reason is that sadly, she has had her passport stolen, meaning she isn’t able to travel.
I wasn’t scheduled to be on the cruise the entire time, I have to get back to the states to deliver an important keynote, which means an international flight. Not possible.
