AEW’s FTR are definitely making a name for themselves. Since their rise got started, they are collecting accolades and epic moments in the ring like a stamp collector does. That collection of aforementioned epic accomplishments is getting impressive, but if you ask them, their goals haven’t at all been met yet.
To say that the AEW roster is full of extraordinary tag teams would be putting it way too mildly, and these two men certainly stand out. If asking Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood though, they have a few things left to accomplish and one of those things is being in “the same conversation,” as Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson – no small shoes to fill at all, but it would seem that the two men are up to the challenge.
The duo appeared on Rasstlin‘ where they expressed their desires to be in the same conversation as other great tag teams.
Cash Wheeler said: “I think we’re going to be the first-ever two-time AEW World Tag Team Champions. In 2022, we’re going to get the titles back we’re going to have the title run that we should have had the first time where we are world beaters six-time, eight-time whatever we’ll defend it every time we get in the ring, but we’re never going to lose those again. Rematch The Young Bucks, beat the shit out of The Briscoes, hold titles everywhere.”
Dax Harwood said: “I think ultimately for 2022 for me, specifically, a legacy of something that I’ve wanted to leave, and I talk about it all the time in our interviews. Ultimately that’s what I want to do is continue to build a legacy. I know for a fact that I can’t do things like Rey Fenix or Nick Jackson or whoever. And I can’t because of my limitations.
We can’t have the athletic matches they can. But there’s a difference between having great tag team matches and being a great tag team. And I think 2022 going forward is just proving that we can be in that same conversation with Arn and Tully and Midnight Express, Rock and Roll Express.
That’s my goal for 2022 because we don’t have very much longer with these current contracts. I don’t know what’s going to happen there. But we have a short amount of time to accomplish things we want to accomplish, like winning the IWGP Tag Team Championships, obviously two-time AEW Tag Team Championships, proving that we are the best.
We’re the only tag team in the world who has the resume that we have as far as the great talent we’ve worked with. I mean, New Day, Usos, American Alpha, DIY all the way down to Young Bucks, Proud and Powerful, Lucha Bros, SCU. And so we want to add to that, build tag team wrestling, but you know, selfishly, more importantly, I want to show the world that we are the definition we are at the core of it, we are the art of tag team wrestling.”
The above comments were made on a recent episode of Rasslin’ With Brandon Walker, and they also went into a plethora of other subjects including a few issues they have with some in the industry. They also go into the good old school long-gone territory wrestling days. This video will be posted below.
Of course their time in AEW is not all they’re known for. WWE fans will remember them as The Revival and their accomplishments – although met with limitations in WWE – were plentiful in that they delivered to the fans any time they got a shot. With their time in AEW, they are also getting the opportunities they missed in New York, to use an old school territory reference for WWE back in the day.
