Nick Jackson was requested what the most important shock of AEW has been to them: “The arduous half is retaining everybody glad since you don’t even understand it till you get into administration. However, it’s arduous to maintain plenty of these wrestlers on the identical web page as a result of clearly there are plenty of egos in wrestling. You need the wrestlers to be glad and that’s one thing that’s arduous but it surely’s manageable. We’ve realized you could’t at all times be the nice man so at some factors you must be the dangerous man. Our nature is to be actual good, so we’ve realized you typically can’t be and I feel that’s in all probability the arduous half for me. I at all times need to be a babyface.”
Matt: “I feel my largest problem that I’ve realized all through this course of is how tough episodic weekly tv is as a result of the place we come from on the independents and even in Japan, typically you’ll simply have to come back in and have one massive match each couple months and you then transfer on to the subsequent city. Right here, it’s a completely different animal. It’s not simply wrestling. You may’t simply go in and rely in your matches. You need to keep fascinating each week. Not solely that, for us, we get to handle a complete roster of women and men and attempt to hold them fascinating as properly. That’s arduous. That’s a tricky activity. Whenever you solely have two hours of TV per week plus Darkish which really helps out, however two hours of tv each week you’re chargeable for and you’ve got this many individuals. The opposite issue that you just don’t even take into consideration since you don’t have to consider, is the rankings. The minute by minute rankings is one thing that Tony Khan pays shut consideration to. That’s typically tough as a result of the artist in me says don’t fear in regards to the minute by minute. We’ve to consider the lengthy sport. That’s how I feel. He’s extra of a numbers cruncher man and he’ll go off of these stats. It’s continually making an attempt to provide you with compelling, fascinating tv that additionally will get a score. Generally these two don’t go collectively. Generally you must sacrifice per week or two and do one thing that possibly individuals may not be compelled or gravitate to instantly, however possibly in 4 to 6 weeks they may get it and it’ll then create a much bigger score. That’s tough, in wrestling particularly.”
Matt talked about his aim: “I feel so far as brief time period initiatives, I wish to have a full size documentary on our lives…One factor is I at all times need to have the most effective match each single evening. I’ll by no means be glad if I’m in second place…Our aim is to at all times be the new tag staff and the most effective tag staff on the earth and possibly someday individuals will say we have been the best of all time.”
Nick added: “That’s my final aim in wrestling is to be often called the most effective tag staff of all time. It’s a tough aim to get to. You need to have excessive targets. It’s an unattainable factor to perform as a result of wrestling is an opinion. Everybody has an opinion on issues and it’s not an precise factual factor as a result of it’s predetermined. I need at the very least some individuals to say we have been the best of all time.”
Matt stated: “Matt and Jeff Hardy are the best ever. There are such a lot of methods to measure that. I do know we are saying that’s an opinion, however on the similar time, it is a field workplace enterprise and Matt & Jeff Hardy are the most important field workplace tag staff act within the historical past of the enterprise. Can we ever attain these numbers that they hit? I don’t know as a result of it’s a special time now. We’re speaking the Angle Period when these numbers have been insane and other people have been shopping for merchandise all over the place. However hey, dream massive, and if someday individuals examine us to them, they usually already do examine us to them, but when they are saying we’re higher than them, than what a loopy accomplishment that’s.”
