FTR are all about keeping the rules alive within a pro wrestling match. They are fans of tradition and Dax Harwood says he loves it to a fault. This is the reason why they want to make sure that certain rules are kept.
Chris Hero wrote a post about tag team ropes and whether they’re necessary. He posted to plug his writing, and Dax Harwood obviously read what the former Kassius Ohno wrote.
Harwood tweeted out to quote a piece of Hero’s work. He also commented on it to further FTR’s point that they’re not trying to set anything back, they’re trying to further it.
[From Chris Hero’s post]“With no restrictions, practically anyone can have a killer match! I’m more impressed when the wrestlers work within particular parameters and STILL have a killer match.”
I’m not intentionally being a “bitter old man”. We HAVE to respect a little of pro wrestling’s foundation.
I hope you guys read this article & understand that my frustration doesn’t come from trying to regress the business or a “hate for highspots”. It’s because I absolutely love it to a fault & want it to continue to grow. We just have to hold on to the base of what got us here.
AEW has a lot of innovative wrestling on their roster, but FTR wants to keep the fundamentals alive. Now tag ropes are a matter of discussion when some fans never realized what they were for in the first place. FTR would like to change that.
