Days before AEW Dynamite airs from Chris Jericho’s cruise, Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Rager at Sea Part Deux: Second Wave, the Young Bucks discussed having the opportunity to have the show on the ship. In an interview with Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald, Matt and Nick Jackson talked about this week’s special episode of AEW Dynamite and reflected on AEW’s first year.
Both Jacksons had nothing but good things to say about the cruise. “It’s not just for wrestling fans, there’s a little bit of everything,” said Matt. “Just being on the ship itself is exciting. We put together some stellar wrestling cards, too. If you’re just going for the wrestling, you’re gonna have a lot to watch. It’s action-packed. Nick put together most of the card by himself, and I was just looking at the final card last night, and Chris was going over it, and man, it’s loaded.” Matt acknowledged that some of the matches will be exclusively for the passengers; they won’t be taped.
The Jacksons also discussed the importance of tag team wrestling in AEW. “We wanted to show the world you could do it as the main event, as the opening act, you could do it as a mid-card act, you could throw it in anywhere and entertain the fans,” said Nick.
Matt praised the depth of the division and how its success. “I don’t remember a time in wrestling since the late ’80s when tag team wrestling was so relevant,” said Matt. “Obviously, we’re gonna have some of the best matches you’ve seen. It’s just a really loaded division, it’s something we’re really passionate about.”
