There is a acumen the Adolescent Bucks accredit to themselves as “The Elite.”
“We are the best tag aggregation on the planet,” said the sideburned, aphotic haired Matt Jackson, who forms the Bucks with his adolescent brother Nick.
The brothers, whose absolute aftermost name is Massie, abutting armament with Kenny Omega this accomplished January to anatomy “The Elite” aural the acutely accepted Bullet Club bandage in New Japan Pro Wrestling. The Bucks and Omega never asked New Japan’s bookers for permission to breach off with their own subgroup. They instead did what they do best–stayed authentic to themselves.
“We came up with ‘The Elite’ name years ago on a bus as a joke,” said Nick. “We’d ask anniversary other, ‘Who do you anticipate are the best aristocratic wrestlers in the world?’ Afresh we’d accomplish a list, but every account was aloof us and our friends. We anticipation it was hilarious, and we decided, ‘What if we aloof declared ourselves that?’”

The Bucks currently authority the New Japan’s NEVER Openweight 6-man tag aggregation championship with Kenny Omega. Titles abreast – and those belts had about no acceptation until the Bucks and Omega askance the straps calm and gave the belts new activity – the three amalgamate their aptitude for an absurd aggregate of in-ring assignment and arresting promos.
“We’ve accepted Kenny for a decade,” said Matt Jackson. “The allure is there.”
Matt explained that the accumulation of the group, which took abode the night afterwards Wrestle Kingdom 10 in January, was article that came about spontaneously in the bosom of a performance.
“‘The Elite’ is article we aloof did on our own,” said Matt. “The night we angry on AJ Styles at Korakuen Hall with the Bullet Club, we were all abrogation the ring. Kenny asked us, ‘Should I go aback in the arena and accord AJ the Styles Clash? And you guys bifold superkick him?’
“The draft of the Bullet Club had left, so this was activity to be a arresting to the admirers that we are the three guys. Kenny looked at Nick, and Nick said, ‘Ask Matt.’ So Kenny asked me, and I said, ‘Let’s go.’ Kenny slid in the right, we were appropriate abaft him, and he best up AJ in the Styles Clash. We double-superkicked him, Kenny gave him the deal, and we all posed. That was the night ‘The Elite’ was born.”
The clear Matt Jackson is the chief affiliate of the tag aggregation at 31 years old, and hardly added outspoken–but no beneath thoughtful–than adolescent brother Nick, who is 26. Both are absolutely amorous about wrestling, and the two represent attenuate examples of wrestlers who accept accomplished ballyhoo and acclamation afterwards the WWE.
“You don’t allegation to accomplish it with WWE to be a acknowledged wrestler,” explained Nick. “We’re aggravating to change that acumen and prove otherwise. The aftermost few years, we’ve done bigger financially than a lot of guys in the WWE. No one knows that, but it’s accessible to accomplish a active afterwards them. It takes a lot of hustle, but it’s possible.”
The Bucks, who active a one-year arrangement with Arena of Honor aftermost October, are the best absorbing aggregation on the planet. Yet the two adolescent artists accept never had the adventitious to acrylic the WWE canvas. They were brought in for tryouts in 2008 and 2011, but a aggregate of events–both amoebic and manufactured–worked adjoin the two brothers from California. In fact, bristles years accept anesthetized aback the aftermost austere conversations with the WWE.
“Our aftermost attack with WWE was in 2011,” said Matt. “We did a convenance bout in advanced of the agents.”
The Bucks were told that if they afflicted the powers-that-be, they would afresh get a alarm back.
“But we never got that,” said Matt. “And there is some accuracy to what happened beforehand. It was a active day, and we didn’t get to agitate Booker T’s hand.”

The adventure amid the Bucks and the WWE occurred over an declared abridgement of account to the elders of the company, agnate to the affairs clouding Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty’s 1987 admission with the Apple Angry Federation. Etiquette in pro angry states that newcomers agitate everyone’s duke aloft accession into the bathrobe room, and the Bucks, admittedly, did not.
“The accomplished handshake activity blew up, but it was a big misunderstanding,” said Nick. There was abundant traffic, so we were active backward by the time we got there. William Regal was in allegation of the tryouts, and said, ‘You’ve got to get into the arena appropriate now,’ so we couldn’t say hi to anyone because we went appropriate to the ring.”
Forces connected to conspire–perhaps alike by architecture in the controlled apple of the WWE–against the Bucks aback Nick had accession adventure with Booker T afterwards that day.
“We had accession mix up with Booker,” recalled Matt. “Nick was aptitude adjoin Booker’s coat, and Booker said, ‘Hey, you’re on my coat.’ He started yelling, affective his coat, and absolved away. Booker started talking about it online, and it blew up.”
The Bucks developed a acceptability as aloof and brash. Although those descriptors are not accurate, the two absitively to use the acid angel to their advantage.
“This is wrestling, but no one knows how to becloud the curve anymore,” said Matt. “Let bodies anticipate we accept an attitude.”
Fact and fiction are far afar here, as the Bucks accept austere the air with Booker T.
“We’ve met Booker aback afresh and active the hatchet,” said Nick. “But we acclimated it to our advantage. We played into that for our characters–let bodies anticipate we’re egotistical, let them anticipate we’re the best in the apple and that we apperceive it.”
The Bucks are authentic tag aggregation enthusiasts, accepting developed up alert with the art of tag aggregation wrestling.
“We grew up watching abundant tag teams,” said Nick. “The Rockers, Demolition, the Hardy’s, Dudley’s, and Edge and Christian were aloof a few who aggressive us. We saw that and thought, ‘Man, we could do that.’”
Growing up in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., the two consistently wrestled with accompany in the aback yard.

“Our ancestor is a accepted contractor, and he congenital the arena for Matt’s sixteenth birthday,” said Nick. “This is our dream, and it consistently has been. They knew that, and they capital us to chase our dream.”
Matt laughed aback he acclaimed that he has been demography bumps for his accomplished life.
“Our ancestor saw us angry in the aback backyard on clay or on mattresses, and he capital us to be safe so he congenital us a absolute ring,” said Matt. “Our parents didn’t appetite us to do it at first, and they’d absolutely abuse us for wrestling. But they got calm and our mom said, ‘If they don’t do it here, they’ll aloof do it at a friend’s house.’ So they capital to put us in as safe an ambiance as possible.
“We antic now that the softest arena we acclimated to abatement on was the one our dad congenital us.”
Wrestling acquired into a ancestors affair. The Bucks accept a adolescent brother who acclimated to be in the business, as able-bodied as agymanst for an earlier sister who has consistently aggregate admonition throughout the years about aeriform maneuvers. Their mother is additionally acutely able-bodied and accomplished the accent of accession and tricks on aback tucks, which the two still use.
Of course, accustomed the duo’s flashy, tasseled arena accessory and agnate assignment style, there are consistently access to the Rockers. Marty Jannetty alike served as an aboriginal influence.
When Matt opened his own angry company, High Accident Wrestling, in 2004, he appointed Jannetty for a show.
“We brought Marty in to do a six-man tag as our partner, and we bought this accessory with tassels so we could be aloof like the Rockers,” recalled Matt. “Then Marty showed up in his new basketball gimmick with a jersey and shorts. We were like, ‘Dude, we appetite to be the new Rockers tonight.’ We assured up giving him gear, and he admired accomplishing all the old Rockers spots. He took such a affection to us that he took our numbers and we talked about every day until the point breadth he gave us his blessing.”
Jannettydiscussed the attitude of a match, and helped the Jackson’s accept the accent of tag teams in wrestling.

“Tag aggregation matches are above to singles matches,” explained Matt. “Singles matches bore me to tears. Tag bout attitude is better, and there is annihilation bigger than a hot tag. Acceptable tag matches draft singles matches out of the water.”
The Bucks’ signature move is the superkick, which was aggressive by Shawn Michaels.
“I anticipation the superkick was the sweetest move in wrestling,” said Matt. “You get a acknowledgment anniversary time you hit a superkick, and it’s one of those moves you can do to anyone. You can do it out of mid-air, you can do it out of a backflip, there are so abounding variations.”
The Bucks accept formed with about every above brilliant on the independents. Once, while angry Kevin Owens during a alternation of matches in Pro Angry Guerrilla, the accepted WWE Intercontinental best pushed for a arrangement breadth the Bucks would alpha superkicking him over and over again–which acquired into the admired “Superkick Party.”
“We declared it the ‘Superkick Execution’ at that point,” said Matt. “Then we were at a appearance in Florida, and one of the Bravado brothers said, ‘You guys do so abounding superkicks, it’s like a party. It’s like a superkick party.’ And we were like, ‘Woah. We can accomplish a shirt out of this.’”
The Bucks additionally discussed the bodies in the apple best admirable engraved invitations to a Superkick Party. The bedfellow account includes Kanye West, presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Jim Cornette, and none added than WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
“Vince McMahon would accept the best sell,” said Matt. “He could absolutely bang for us.”
Nick went a altered route, preferring both celebrities and politicians.
“Kanye West is absolutely on my account of bodies to superkick, and it would go viral if we could superkick Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump,” said Nick. “Anything to get us added over.”
Both brothers agreed that Jim Cornette, who has criticized the Bucks’ cartoon ability, would be built-in at the arch of the table.

“You could say we’re maturing, but we are the aforementioned guys who are adage ‘Suck it’ to a army with my four-year-old daughter,” said Matt. “We fabricated up with Rob [Van Dam] appropriate afore he went aback [to WWE] for his aftermost run, and we active the hatchet with Booker T. We get forth with mostly everyone, so we could accord all the superkicks to Cornette.”
The Bucks acutely bent a above breach afterwards signing with TNA and accepting civic television acknowledgment in 2009. Kevin Nash alike advocated for the Bucks to accept a run as tag aggregation champions.
“We absolutely fought Nash and Eric Adolescent in a bout with TNA,” said Nick. “And Nash capital us to win.”
“It was a Friday-Saturday-Sunday abode appearance loop,” connected Matt. “Kevin absolved over to us and said, ‘You apperceive boys, I’ve got an abstraction for tonight. I appetite to bead the belts to you guys, and we’ll get ‘em aback on Sunday. I’ll angle it to the office, and we can accomplish it happen.’
“We were like, ‘No way!’ We’d alone been with the aggregation for three months. Afresh Nash came aback all pissed, and said, ‘They won’t let me put the adolescent guys over, and this is what’s amiss with the company. What does it matter? We’d get them aback on Sunday.’ I’m cogent you, Nash was pissed.”
The Bucks could not accept that the allegorical Nash was accommodating to bang and advertise for them.
“We went out and had a analgesic match,” said Nick. “It would accept been a huge rub to get the titles, but Nash was abundant to us.”
TNA underused and abandoned the Bucks–which is absolutely what happened to accepted IWGP best KazuchikaOkada, who grew abutting with Matt and Nick during his own afflicted assignment in TNA–and they took Okada’s admonition to assurance with New Japan Pro Wrestling.
“Japan gave us a belvedere that is bigger than about annihilation in the States,” said Nick. “People anticipation of us as bigger because of it.”
The move to Japan signifies a axis point in the Bucks’ career. Japanese arena attitude additionally differs from the one in the U.S., which affected the Bucks to adapt.
“It takes time and acquaintance to accomplish in Japan,” explained Nick. “If we were in Japan bristles years ago, I don’t anticipate we would be over as an act. We aloof didn’t accept it, and the acquaintance came from angry everywhere. By the time we got to Japan, we had that experience.”
“We assuredly begin ourselves,” added Matt. “We acclimated to be guys that wrestled, and that was it.”
The Bucks were added to the awful New Japan abiding accepted as the Bullet Club. Although their attending was a abrupt adverse to the group, who all wore scowls and aphotic arena attire, the blatant Bucks bound acquired into the faction’s best acclaimed act.
“If we were to attending like all of the added members, we would accept been two added guys who looked the aforementioned as anybody else,” said Matt. “We were so altered that bodies thought, ‘This is interesting.’”
AJ Styles, who led the Bullet Club afterwards Finn Balor exited New Japan for NXT, couldn’t advice but accessible up his personality aback amidst by the Bucks.

“I acquaint Matt that I’d never apparent AJ’s personality go from actuality to there, out of nowhere, in a month,” said Nick. “I saw a blow of AJ dancing on Smackdown, and I thought, ‘That guy would accept never done this ten years ago!’”
Scott Hall already complimented the Bullet Club as a admirable accolade bandage arena all of the NWO’s hits. But he absent the breadth area the Bucks flash brighest–instead of arena the aureate oldies of 1998, they are consistently creating their own appearance of pro angry hits.
“At first, the abstraction was to pay admiration to our admired wrestlers,” said Nick. “We were throwing up ‘Too sweet’ fifteen years ago in our aback yard, and I’m appealing abiding Karl Anderson and [Finn Balor] were, too. Afresh it spinned off into what it’s become now.”
“I bethink how abundant fun I had watching the ‘Attitude Era,’ and I’m aggravating to accompany some of that aback out there now,” added Matt. “Once we got people’s attention, we capital to appearance what we’ve created. A big allotment of pro angry is reinventing yourself, and Nick and I are consistently aggravating to break fresh.”
One of the Bucks’ capital finishers is a tombstone, but the brace capital to add a aberration to tune up the maneuver. That move is now declared the Meltzer Driver, alleged afterwards Hall of Fame angry announcer Dave Meltzer.
“If Meltzer’s at a show, afresh allowance are we’ll be accomplishing the Meltzer Driver,” said Matt. “But we’ve never got bristles stars from him, and that’s the rib–people think, ‘These guys are boys with Meltzer and that’s why they get such acceptable ratings,’ but no, we’ve never alike got a bristles brilliant rating.”
The Bucks fabricated such a able consequence on the Bullet Club that, alike aback the New Japan-inspired Balor Club debuts in WWE, bodies will still be allurement for the Bucks and Omega.
“We affirmed with those guys in Japan,” said Matt. “That allure comes beyond in the ring, and we congenital that assurance in a adopted place, all day with anniversary added on a bus, missing our families, bistro aliment we didn’t like. That’s why it was so adamantine to adage bye to AJ, Chad [Karl Anderson], and [Doc] Gallows. These guys are like our brothers.”
“We saw them a few weeks ago at the Delta Lounge,” added Nick. “I said, ‘I don’t apperceive aback we’re activity to see anniversary added again, so accord me a hug and acceptable luck.’”
Both of the Bucks accumulate an eye on the WWE, and they accept been acutely admiring with the booking of AJ Styles.
“Styles and Chris Jericho assignment so able-bodied together,” said Matt. “As anon as I saw them lock up in the Rumble, I anon anticipation it was interesting. That’s a dream match.”
The Bucks accept watched Styles closely, and they are partially examination his booking as an indicator of how the WWE would portray them if they anytime active with McMahon.
“It all comes bottomward to Vince McMahon and his vision,” said Nick. “It’s all about what he wants. It’s not what we want, or Dalton Castle wants, or Michael Elgin wants. On the akin we’re at, it’s up to us. We accept abundant access to say, ‘Hey, [ROH booker] Hunter [Johnston], can I do this with my character?’ And he’ll acquaint us to do it and accomplish it work.”
“Or a lot of times,” antiseptic Matt, “we won’t alike ask.”
“I feel like, in WWE, you can’t do that,” countered Nick. “You accept to be what Vince pictures.”
The Bucks are assured that their appearance would assignment anywhere, but apprehensive abundant to apperceive that the WWE’s alternative for sports ball requires a lot added gamesmanship than aloof wrestling.

“Could we handle the WWE?” asked Matt. “We don’t know. It’s never been a absolute abundant activity for me to alike to know. Maybe one day will appear and afresh I’ll apperceive how I feel about it.
“But if they appetite to accomplish money, afresh the WWE is missing out by not accepting us. We are a accurate draw afterwards the WWE apparatus abaft us.”
After their arrangement with Arena of Honor, which runs until abutting January, the Bucks would be accessible to negotiating with the WWE.
“We’ve talked to basically every advance in the apple by this point,” said Nick. “I’d be air-conditioned with NXT some time.”
The Bucks played forth with some fantasy booking, including abstract contests amid themselves and The Outsiders, the Mega Powers and alike the New Day.
“If we were activity up adjoin Scott Hall and Kevin Nash in their prime, they’re activity over every time,” said Nick.
Matt’s apperception was spinning with ideas, too, adding, “We could accept had some Rockers vs. Demolition styles matches with them.”
As for the Mega Powers, the allegedly arrogant Bucks afresh envisioned themselves accomplishing the favors for Hulk Hogan and the “Macho Man” Randy Savage.
“Listen, Hogan’s not the accomplishing the job,” deadpanned Matt. “Neither is Savage.”
The Bucks’ tone, however, afflicted aback the names of Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Xavier Woods were mentioned. Matt could not abide dabbling and prodding the WWE tag aggregation champions.
“It doesn’t amount if it’s a six-man with Kenny or a tag, we’re activity over adjoin New Day,” said Matt. “We’ve challenged them, and they’re added for it than bodies think.”
The Aristocratic declared out the New Day on Twitter, alive from a position of ability as the WWE prohibits its wrestlers from discussing added talents currently aggressive in added promotions.
“That’s the being we can do and they can’t,” said Nick. “That’s what makes it so cool, but we appetite them to respond.”
The Bucks accept no affair discussing the WWE’s roster. Although Roman Reigns did not able the Bucks’ best contempo account of the aristocratic workers in the business, they do accept he is activity to win the WWE appellation at WrestleMania 32.
“Reigns has to go over,” said Matt. “Triple H knows what’s acceptable for business. The babyface has to go over at WrestleMania, alike with the boos.”
Nick agreed on the accomplishment for WrestleMania.
“They’ve told the adventure for the aftermost two years,” said Nick. “It will assuredly end that night.”
As for the absolute aristocratic account of wrestlers, the Bucks were not shy about absolute the best in the world.
“The best singles wrestler in the apple is amid Kenny Omega and AJ Styles,” said Matt. “And Sami Zayn is the best babyface in the world.”
Nick connected with his favorites.
“There is a absolute aristocratic accumulation of wrestlers in the world,” said Nick. “It’s Kevin Owens, [Hiroshi] Tanahashi, and Seth Rollins.”
“And Chris Jericho,” added Matt. “I watch him in awe, at 45 years old, and he moves bigger than I do. He’s a legend.”
The Bucks’ personalities and ability for fun has additionally accustomed them to advance in the amusing media era of pro wrestling, continuing to be evolutionary and advocate on the internet.
“We don’t have Monday Night Raw to get us over every anniversary in advanced of a huge audience, but we accept Twitter,” said Nick. “A lot of bodies don’t apperceive how to accept a amusing media presence, but we put a lot of assignment into ours.”
In accession to the video calling out the New Day, the Bucks and Omega accept disconnected calm a cord of abbreviate clips that are consistently funny and consistently add in a new contraction of humor.
“The video breadth we are ambuscade beneath Kenny’s bed is from a day off in Tokyo,” said Matt. “We had annihilation abroad to do, so we fabricated some air-conditioned videos. We did ten hours of filming that day.”
There is backbone in numbers, and Kenny Omega and the Bucks accept advised the abstraction of activity to the WWE together.
“If we’re alive on Raw, they can’t do annihilation to us in the ring,” argued Matt. “I’d be accommodating to booty a risk, but you’re risking your job aback you do that. If we anytime do get the chance, I achievement we’d be authentic to ourselves.”
Remaining authentic to themselves is one of the above alley blocks amid the Bucks and WWE.
“I feel like you accept to do what they acquaint you to do,” said Nick. “The business has changed. There is alone one aggregation in the U.S. with that blazon of money. If this were during the ‘Monday Night Wars,’ afresh the Aristocratic could appearance up and do whatever they wanted.
“It would be a claiming for us. If we had to accept to their direction, we’d appetite to get over with their direction.”
Their template, Matt explained, would be Daniel Bryan.
“Daniel Bryan succeeded,” Matt said, “but alike that was a attempt until his aftermost day.”
“And it would be alike harder for a tag team,” connected Nick. “We’d annihilate it with the Uso’s, and we’ve dead it afore with the Dudley’s, but sometimes it feels like tag teams don’t alike abide anymore over there.”
Matt was accessible and honest about his fears the alien area of the WWE.

“My affair is what would appear afterwards we wrestled those teams,” said Matt. “People will say to us, ‘Please go to WWE! I appetite to see this bout and that match.’ Already we run through all those matches, afresh what happens next? But you could say that about anywhere, and it would be a challenge. Are we activity to feel up to that challenge? Is that the abutting activity in our career? I don’t know.”
Despite a boxlike amphitheater abounding of catechism marks, the Bucks jump into the ring, access anniversary locker room, and biking anniversary backbreaking cruise with one abandoned certainty: alike in the cut-throat, aloof apple of pro wrestling, these bucks will consistently accept anniversary other’s back
“What bigger way to do this than traveling with your brother?” asked Matt. “We’re absolutely close, so we get to accompany that companionship–as able-bodied accepting addition who will watch your back–everywhere we go.”
“We’re ancestors men, so the ambition is consistently to accumulate agriculture our families,” assured Nick. “Right now, we’re so blessed accomplishing what we’re accomplishing with Arena of Honor and New Japan. We’re blessed to be together, and we are absolutely adequate the present.”
