Positive Injury Update On Matt Jackson

The Young Bucks Matt Jackson Nick Jackson

Matt Jackson hasn’t been in action since the March 15th episode of Dynamite, but according to a recent report, that could be changing soon.

On the March 22nd episode, The Young Bucks were attacked by members of the Blackpool Combat Club in order to write them off television as Matt Jackson was dealing with a partially torn bicep. The Elite would make their grand return on the April 12th episode, and despite not being cleared to compete, Matt helped his teammates exact revenge on the Blackpool Combat Club with an attack of their own.

In early April, Dave Meltzer reported that Jackson was expected to be out of action for 6-8 weeks while he rehabbed his injury, electing not to undergo surgery as it would be a longer recovery time. Jackson was said to be hopeful about a return to the ring at the upcoming Double or Nothing pay-per-view.

Now, a further report from Meltzer indicates that a Double or Nothing return could indeed be on the horizon as he’s been cleared to compete. Writing in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Meltzer gave the following update:

“Matt Jackson’s recovery from a partially torn biceps has obviously gone quicker than expected with all the stuff he’s done on television. He was actually cleared this week, a few weeks ahead of schedule and was bumping and running the ropes in the ring before the 5/10 show and has done resistance training for a few weeks.”

Matt Jackson Called The Young Bucks The Most Influential Tag Team Of All Time

In a comment on an August 2022 Instagram post from his brother Nick Jackson, Matt touted their tag team success and made the claim that they were the most influential tag team of all time due to revolutionizing merchandise sales and creating a new genre of wrestling.

“And to think, if we never decided to do it, so many wrestlers would currently be unemployed. An entire genre of wrestling would never be created. The very way merchandise was sold would’ve never been revolutionized & the economy of the industry would’ve never boomed the way it did. The most influential tag team of all time. Congrats.”
