Former WWE broadcast team member turned ESPN anchor Charly Arnolt (aka Charly Caruso), recently spoke with AEW World Tag-Team Champions The Young Bucks — Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson — for an in-depth interview.
During the interview, Matt Jackson spoke about how the duo found more success when they started breaking the traditional rules in pro wrestling, as well as some interesting notes on the shoes that the team will be wearing on tonight’s edition of AEW Dynamite on TNT.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview, as well as a complete video archive of the discussion.
Matt Jackson on how they found more success when they started breaking the traditional rules in pro wrestling: “Professional wrestling has always been very traditional. And it’s like there’s these unspoken rules, and we followed those rules for so long, and were very unsuccessful in our careers. So, when my brother and I finally decided to break the rules, and to be rebels, and do whatever we wanted to do, everything sort of started to change, and we became successful. We felt the change, we felt that shift, and so people started saying, ‘Oh, they do too many superkicks, they do too much of this, they’re killing the business!’ And we were like, well our pocketbook is getting a lot bigger and fatter, so you tell us we’re killing the business? I like this ‘Killing The Business’ thing.”
