The Young Bucks (Nick & Matt Jackson) vs. The Hardy Boys (Jeff & Matt Hardy) from NEW 2014

Originally reviewed here.

The Hardys were in control early on. They went for Poetry in Motion on Nick, but Nick gave Jeff a superkick. The Bucks then cut off Matt and worked him over. That went on for a while. Matt started to fight back, but Jeff was taken out and not available to tag. Then there was a ref bump. Willow the Wisp came out from under the ring and hit the Bucks with a chair. Matt Hardy then hit Matt Jackson with a Twist of Fate: 1…2…NO! The Bucks came back on Matt. They worked him over some more. Jeff Hardy popped up on the apron again. Willow was nowhere to be seen. Matt Hardy caught Matt Jackson with a Side Effect, and Jeff then made a hot tag. The teams started going back and forth. Matt Hardy missed a moonsault and then ate the IndyTaker! Jeff made the save. The Bucks then hit the Twist of Fate/Swanton combo on Matt for a nearfall. Matt Jackson then took the Twist of Fate/Swanton combo: 1…2…3!

I would have really liked to see this match without commentary that drowns out the crowd. It was hard to get a feel for that aspect of the match, and the commentary was just distracting in general.

The work itself was good, but I found the Willow the Wisp spot to be less endearing here than in the Briscoes match. I would say that I have this match firmly in the middle of the three Hardys/Bucks match.

Match Rating: ***1/4
