Jimmy Korderas on The Young Bucks
"Look, I like The Young Bucks as heels. I thought they showed a lot of promise in that, the overconfidence, the cocky attitude. Cheating at the end was fine but distracting the referee like that and giving the low blow and just, like, freezing there and holding it and looking at the camera, for like ten seconds? Way too long!
Heels don’t cheat like that! Heels cheat quickly, get it done, get it over with. Other than that, I enjoyed their heel tactics, let’s put it that way," Jimmy Korderas stated. Korderas said while he enjoyed the match, he wished Cage would have appeared a little more tired at the end, given he was facing a high level talent like Hangman: "And in the opening match with (Brian) Cage and Adam Page, I just wish Cage would look like he had been in more of a fight.
Yes, he beat him handily, but he just looked way too fresh at the end." Said Korderas. After defeating the Sydal Brothers this week, The Young Bucks will defend their AEW Tag Team Championships on the May 12th edition of AEW Dynamite.
The Young Bucks' challengers will be determined on next week's AEW: Blood and Guts episode when The Acclaimed, SCU, Varsity Blondes, and Jurassic Express will battle it out in a four-way clash. The Young Bucks have delivered critically-acclaimed performances since embracing their dark side. Their over-the-top shenanigans during matches have entertained fans while also making viewers loathe them.
