AEW's Matt Jackson, Brandon Cutler get COVID-19, Young Bucks off Dynamite

Matt Jackson, one half of former AEW Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks, has COVID-19, along with stablemate Brandon Cutler.

According to Bryan Alvarez, both Jackson (seen above) and Cutler got the virus and since brother Nick Jackson was with the two men for 18 hours recently, he was deemed a close contact. As a result, all three men won't appear on this week's AEW Dynamite debut on TBS and won't be back on TV until they are cleared.

The Bucks changed their Twitter bio Tuesday to, among other things, say that Matt had COVID-19.

All three are believed to be at home in California and didn't make the trip to Newark, New Jersey, for Wednesday's show. It's unknown when the positive tests came in, but it was not Tuesday.

The Bucks weren't announced for a match on either Dynamite or Rampage this week and appeared on last week's show as the storyline with Adam Cole and the reformed reDRagon (Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly) continued.

Nick Jackson battled COVID-19 in September 2020 which affected him for nearly three months.
