FTR is not having the best time in AEW, with rumors suggesting their unrest there and subsequent willingness to move to WWE and assess their options once their contract expires early next year. Many reports are also linking them with a move back to WWE, as it was under Triple H that they became perhaps the hottest heel act in WWE NXT during their time there.

FTR is one of the best tag teams in pro wrestling today

Speaking about their time in WWE, Dax Harwood recently clarified some public misunderstandings about the former Revival’s time in WWE. During his appearance on the Gentleman Villain Podcast (h/t Subhojeet Mukherjee of Ringside News), Harwood was asked about rumors that FTR complained backstage about how they were being treated in WWE.

He said:

We never did that. We just wanted better for ourselves. We wanted better for the tag team division because we knew that if the division grew, we could grow with that division. And we knew that if we stayed in the rut that we were in, we were never gonna be elevated.”





FTR and Dax want to Work With Cody in WWE


Dax Harwood, whose AEW Contract is set to expire very soon, talked about heat with Cody Rhodes, and hoping to wrestle him soon perhaps in WWE.

This is what Dax Harwood said on the “Gentleman Villain.”

“Before I came to AEW, I had a big issue with Cody, which I’ve talked to him about. He did a podcast with Sam Roberts and Sam Roberts said, ‘I’m going to ask you point blank, who’s better FTR, or the Revival, or The Young Bucks’, and without skipping a beat, he said, ‘The Young Bucks because FTR, or The Revival, they have to practice their matches and The Young Bucks, they don’t. They just come in and have these matches.’”

Dax Harwood hopes to work with Cody Rhodes very soon in WWE?


“I took issue with that because in 18 years now, at that point, I think it was like 15 years or whatever, 14 years, I’ve never, ever, ever, ever, ever practiced a match in my life, and I will never practice a match in my life. That goes to the Speedball (Mike Bailey) match you saw at WrestleCade. He wanted to practice in the back and I said, ‘Speedball, I’m sorry, I don’t do that, and I’m not going to start today.’ But that really ate at me because all the stuff that we had built up and we had worked so hard to create,

I felt that he was taking a sh*t on that by saying we practice our matches. But I got over that. Even though it doesn’t sound like it, I did. I got over it. He and I are very good friends. We talk all the time now. I think that he is a visionary, I think he is too smart for his own good, and I hope to be able to work with him very, very soon because I mean, I think I could tear it up with him.”

It remains to be seen what the future holds for FTR, but safe to say they won’t be short of suitors if their deal with AEW does run out.
