The Young Bucks (Nick & Matt Jackson) vs. AC/DC (Arik Cannon & Darin Corbin) from DreamWave Wrestling’s “Fight Before Christmas” 2014

Review by Reed Benson:

If you want to see something different from the Young Bucks, don’t come here. If you want to see several of the Young Bucks’ regular spots, this has most of them. You’ve got a couple superkicks, the headscissors/dropkick combo, the neckbreaker onto the knee, the flipping senton in the ropes, the buckle bomb/enzuigiri combo, the Indytaker, and probably something I’m blanking on. No More Bang for Your Buck, though they go for it at the end.

If you like Cannon and Corbin’s comedy, there’s some of that. They do a Bushwhackers tribute with a battering ram. Corbin puts on a horse mask to do it again, but then they both get superkicked. They do some nice moves, too, though they’re not as quick as the Bucks. There’s an assisted shiranui followed by a running kick that I particularly liked.

As far as psychology, there’s a little of that since AC/DC isolate Nick for an extended period. When he gets the hot tag to Matt around the 8:30 mark, things get exciting. In fact, if you just want to start watching the match from there, that’ll do you pretty well.

I’m kind of annoyed at Arik Cannon recovering so early from a Canadian destroyer, but I should expect stuff like that from these guys. I’m also disappointed that the match ends in yet another roll-up, but at least it’s preceded by a hard low blow and is stacked pretty tightly.

If you like the Bucks’ stuff, you might like this. If you hate it, this won’t change your mind. If you like AC/DC (the tag team), you’ll probably like this. If you like AC/DC (the band), good for you, but it’s not really relevant.
