AEW loves pro wrestling history and they’ve had legends at their events in the past. They might even have a huge surprise in store at Full Gear on November 7th. FTR have begged Tony Khan for a match against the Rock n Roll Express, but it hasn’t happened yet.
While speaking to Wrestle Talk, Dax Harwood says they have literally begged for a match against the WWE Hall Of Famers. This hasn’t happened yet, but an exact reason hasn’t been given yet. They do remain optimistic that it will someday take place.
“We’ve begged Tony [Khan]. Both of us have begged him multiple times to please book this match, please book this match”. He’s apprehensive and he has his reasons to be apprehensive. There could be backlash from the internet saying these guys are, because of COVID, maybe they’re more susceptible to the virus. There is backlash and there is reasons why he isn’t doing it yet. I understand that but man, FTR vs. Rock ‘n’ Roll is great on the marquee, but also the way that myself and Cash, and I’ve talked about it all the time, but the way that we wanna make people feel, that match would help us make people feel a certain way. For whatever reason, and maybe it’s because he’s one of the greatest of all time, but people feel a certain way about Ricky Morton, and same thing with Cash and I, they have a certain way they feel about us, whether good or bad. That would help us evoke so much emotion… because if we got the chance to beat on Ricky Morton that would help our stock rise. You know, just the Spike Piledriver rose our stock so much more than a year of having great matches, and that would just help us so much if we can ever get that done.”
Cash Wheeler went on to talk about how much raw emotion and fan reaction they could get with FTR vs R&R, but it hasn’t happened yet. We do remain hopeful along with them that this match is a possibility down the line. Obviously, AEW has their reservations about signing off on that contest in their ring, but you never know what can happen in pro wrestling.
