Matt Jackson talks about length of All In and Hogan Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/15/2018 at 09:47 AM
Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks recently did an interview with WrestleZone Radio and here are a few highlights...
How long All In will be: "Honestly, if it was just my opinion, and my opinion solelyÖ itís hard because itís a team effortÖ I like three hours. I have a short attention span and Iím a father of two. I think Iím a millennial, Iím 33 now. I think three hours is realistic and I am going to try and keep it around that. I definitely do not want a five or six hour marathon show where the fans are worn out by the main event. Itís the same thing with our YouTube show. I like the shorter episodes that are just ten or fifteen minutes long. If itís a special episode, like episode 100, weíll go like 25 minutes. People ask me, 'Well, why donít you guys just do like an hour a week?' Well, because then you guys wonít like the show. Thatís the point. You want to give them enough so they canít wait for next week. I feel like the same goes for a pro wrestling show."
What style of wrestling will be featured at All In: "I think all good wrestling shows have a good balance of every genre of wrestling. I feel like there should be the more serious technical match, maybe a match with more drama, comedy matches, womenís matches, a tag bout and then a crazy, longer main event. All shows need that balance. Thatís why some shows arenít as good because every match is more or less the same. Thatís one thing that me, Nick and Cody are going to be pretty particular about is identifying to the talents what we want out of the matches and what we can hopefully get out of it. Thatís the plan."
Hulk Hogan: "I was asked the other day about 'Hollywood' Hulk Hogan and I was like, 'Heíd probably cost $150,000 just to make an in-ring appearance.' I canít afford that. When we first announced this show I think everyone just assumed we had these endless funds so just go ahead and bring in whoever! Sometimes there are names that are just unrealistic. It really is just three guys running a show. Give me a break."
