The Young Bucks defended the AEW World Tag Team Titles in a three-way match against Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks and Swerve Strickland & Keith Lee on Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite.

Lee and Swerve captured the titles. However, Matt Jackson suffered a stinger in the match.

While speaking on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez noted the injury occurred when Matt took a suplex.

“About three, four, five minutes into the match Matt Jackson gets a stinger. If you watch the match from that point…well, what happened…this is one of the things people are talking about because there are so many injuries, but dude I’m telling you 80% of these injuries are on things that nobody should ever get hurt doing. What he got hurt on was Keith Lee and Hobbs giving him a basic vertical suplex, and when he fell, you could see it immediately. He hit a** first then his head snapped back, and he was grabbing his neck. From that point forward, he was being super careful on his bumps.”
