Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler established themselves as one of the top tag teams in pro wrestling. They already proved their worth in AEW by winning the AEW Tag Team Titles once. The two also don’t care what their critics have to say about their matches.

FTR are true fans of the old school way of professional wrestling and was inspired by various legends, with Bret Hart being their greatest inspiration. CM Punk would certainly approve of this.

For the past year or so, AEW has hired several former WWE Superstars including the likes of Malakai Black, Bryan Danielson, CM Punk, Adam Cole and many more. Some fans are upset with AEW signing former WWE Superstars.

While speaking to TSN, FTR’s Dax Harwood said that he finds it mind-boggling that fans are upset with AEW hiring former WWE talents. He then explained the reason why they are needed.


There are a lot of fans — and it boggles my mind — who are upset by this. They’re upset by seeing a lot of former WWE talent [in AEW]. They’ve got to understand AEW cannot just hire independent wrestlers because if they only hire independent wrestlers for a television product, it’s almost like the blind leading the blind. You have to have people who are experienced in television wrestling because it’s a completely different beast from just professional wrestling

AEW will continue to sign a variety of talents, whoever will help benefit the company in the long run. In the end AEW has proven their investments have been successful, so it remains to be seen who they will sign next.
