Nick Jackson Possibly Injured, Thought He’d Broken His Leg

Young Bucks on AEW Impact Deal

Last night’s AEW Dynamite ended with an explosive reunion between Bullet Club legends Kenny Omega, Karl Anderson, Doc Gallows and the Young Bucks. However, one of those men may very well have seriously injured their leg earlier in the show!

Nick Jackson of the Young Bucks apparently thought he had broken his leg during the match earlier in the night which saw the AEW Tag Team Champions team up with SCU to take on The Acclaimed and The Hybrid2 in the show’s opener. Speaking on the Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez revealed that Nick Jackson actually thought he’d broken his leg after blocking a 630 Splash from Jack Evans with his knees:

“Did you notice, Nick didn’t do a superkick there in that last segment? So, story I heard is that in the opening match, Jack (Evans) went for the 630 or whatever, and Nick got his knees up. And whatever happened happened, but Jack landed so hard on his legs that Nick thought he’d broke one of his legs. So if you watch the rest of the match, Nick’s doing the rest of this match thinking his leg might be broken. And he came out at the end of the show and he did the whole angle, he’s trying not to limp, and didn’t throw the superkick because his leg hurt.”

There has been no confirmation yet of whether Nick Jackson has suffered an injury of any kind. Thus far, The Elite are scheduled to be in action next week on AEW Dynamite’s New Year’s Smash Night 2. Full results from week one of AEW Dynamite New Year’s Smash Night 1 are available here.
