July 22, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

Professional Wrestling Legend Chris Jericho recently interviewed ROH & NJPW Stars The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) on his Talk Is Jericho Podcast. Below are the highlights from the interview:
On making more from merchandise than wrestling last year:
Matt Jackson: “I literally run [the “merch empire”] from home with my wife. Like, pretty much, she does everything, so I have to give her credit. We run it out of our house. Like, literally, Dana, my wife, folds every single t-shirt, puts them in an envelope, and sends them. Old school. Like, literally hundreds. There are boxes all over my living room, boxes of inventory. Yeah. We’ve made more in Young Bucks merch than we ever did in wrestling just last year. Yeah, crazy. I’m not even talking about prowrestlingtees or Hot Topic.”

On being the first non-WWE wrestlers to get Funko Pop! action figures:
Matt Jackson: “The other thing that’s exciting that I can announce here is that in July, we’re getting our own Funko Pop!s. We’re going to be the very first non-WWE wrestlers to ever have Funko Pop!s, but in July we get a double-pack. That [Hot Topic exclusive] is in July. And then, in August, we get a variant that will be available everywhere.”
On the original plans for the RAW Invasion:
Nick Jackson: “We had that planned, man, for a long time. Maybe even longer [than six months]. Actually, we were originally going to do it with The Hardy Boyz. We were going to be outside of WrestleMania and we were going to do something with The Hardys. They were going to transport to WrestleMania and we were going to be there and have a little altercation. That’s right, we were going to take their titles. They were the TNA [tag] champs at the time.”

On the invasion actually coming from AXS TV, the U.S. broadcast partner of New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW):
Matt Jackson: “New Japan works with a company called AXS TV where they have a weekly show, and AXS TV contacted Nick and I, and [David] Lagana was one of the guys that hit us up, actually. I don’t know. He’s doing some cool stuff with NWA right now. They were about to do the New Japan Long Beach [California] show and they contacted us. And Monday Night RAW was going to be the week before out in L.A. So they were like, ‘would you guys be interested in doing some kind of invasion on AXS TV?’ and Nick and I were like, ‘yes! Let’s do it!’ AXS was all about it. AXS talked to New Japan. New Japan said, ‘no way.’”
