– Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks responded to a tweet by AXS TV promoting one of the upcoming episodes of the weekly NJPW featuring the Wrestle Kingdom 12 matches and The Young Bucks vs. Roppongi 3K for the IWGP jr. heavyweight tag team titles. Jackson took a shot at former UFC heavyweight champion and AXS TV color commentator, Josh Barnett, in his tweet, which you can see below.

Jackson wrote on Barnett, “One helluva match. Can’t wait to hear UFC guy bury it on commentary!” He’s referring back to the NJPW G1 Special from last July, where The Young Bucks were of the belief that Barnett buried them on commentary because they thought he didn’t like their in-ring work. Barnett then responded to Jackson’s tweets, denying that he buried The Young Bucks. You can check out the full Twitter exchange below.
