A look back at Blood & Guts via Matt and Nick Jackson.

Getting their hands raised at the conclusion of AEW Blood & Guts 2023 was The Golden Elite (Kenny Omega, Kota Ibushi, Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson & Hangman Adam Page). They bested the team of PAC, Konosuke Takeshita and Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta). PAC and Takeshita walked out on their team. 

Insight into the match was provided by The Young Bucks during episode #64 of the Swerve City Podcast. They confirmed that the match had to be taken home early and things were cut from it. Nick shared that he was frustrated but then Matt chimed in and reminded him that he’s healthy and all good following the bout. 

It put things into perspective for Nick. This conversation occurred immediately after the match was over. The Young Bucks later watched the match back and enjoyed it. 

Nick: There’s some moments though (when I’m still wrapped up in wrestling), even like, I wanna say it was Blood & Guts. We had to take the match home quick. 

Matt: We had to cut some stuff. 

Nick: And I look at Matt and Hangman (Adam Page)…

Matt: He’s livid. 

Nick: And I’m like, ‘Dang it! That wasn’t the best match! I wanted this to be the best match!’ And Matt’s like, ‘Are we all healthy?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah.’ ‘Can we walk?’ ‘Yeah.’ I was like, ‘Oh, you’re right.’

Matt: I go, ‘Then who cares?’ I go, ‘I’m going to Hawaii,’ because I knew I was planning a trip to Hawaii (he laughed). 

Nick: But even I get lost sometimes in the moment. Man, I want it to go this way but whatever, I’m healthy. 

Matt: I even said, ‘Did you try your best?’ I remember I said that to you. You’re like, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘I did too.’ 

Nick: That was in the ring. It’s not backstage. We’re literally — the bell rang, we’re raising our hands and I’m like, ‘Dang it.’ 

Matt: And then he’s funny because later that night, he and I, we were eating Wendy’s upstairs, just the two of us watching the match back and we were popping for everything and at the end of the hour, we’re like, ‘That was freaking great.’

Nick: I was like, ‘What was I mad about?’ 

Scheduled for the August 9th episode of AEW Dynamite is Matt and Nick Jackson squaring off against The Hardys (Matt & Jeff Hardy).
