Matthew Jackson On What AEW Has Accomplished Since Their Launch In 2019

Top AEW star and company EVP Matthew Jackson recently appeared on an episode of the AEW Unrestricted podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including the company’s fifth anniversary.

Jackson said, “It’s a big night. I mean, five years ago, we stood on that stage and we welcomed everybody to the first Double or Nothing, a show name that we created, actually. To see how far AEW has come, how much we’ve grown in those five years, it’s amazing, and I think a lot of people take it for granted. This is unprecedented what one company, a baby company like AEW has done in half a decade. It blows my mind. Sometimes I have to sit back and go, wow, and take it all in.”

On what AEW has accomplished since their launch in 2019:

“In this business, we go from town to town, from show to show, we don’t get a chance to really smell the roses and enjoy and take it all in, and this is huge. I think one day, when we’re all retired and we’re all old, we’re gonna look back, and we’re finally gonna be able to go, ‘Wow,’ and to think that me and Nicholas did all on our own, that’s really humbling and really cool, and it makes me very happy.”
