Once upon a time, The Young Bucks vs. The Hardys was a match that could have main event-ed a PPV.
In 2023, with Jeff Hardy working his way back from his latest DUI-related absence, it was prelude to announcing a bigger match that — while it won’t main event All In, is one of the biggest set for Wembley Stadium on Aug. 27.
First, the match. The Hardys still know how to work a fun match, and get a crowd eating out of the palm of their hands. But as expected, Matt Hardy took a BTE Trigger and a pin before a mutual show of respect with Matt & Nick Jackson of The Bucks.
Afterwards, Nick called for a microphone and no sooner uttered the name of Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler’s team than FTR appeared. It only took two words to make it official... “All In”. Harwood & Wheeler raised their AEW World Tag titles in the air, and it’s on!
