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.

While speaking to Elite POV, Dax Harwood talked about how he decided to become a pro wrestler. Harwood revealed that after watching Bret Hart in the King of the Ring 1993, he wanted to become a pro wrestler instead of a power ranger.

I have always been a fan of professional wrestling since as long as I can remember. For my birthday back on June 23rd 1993, my mom bought me the King of the Ring pay-per-view and I remember just watching Bret Hart have these three spectacular matches and I remember as soon as it was over, where he defeated Bam Bam Bigelow, that’s when I decided and I told my mom, ‘I want to be a wrestler, that’s what I want to do’ and my mom is like, ‘Yeah, whatever’ but there was never another thought about what I wanted to do. It went straight from, ‘I want to be a Power Ranger’ to I wanted to be a wrestler and there was nothing else after that.


Bret Hart’s contributions to the pro wrestling industry can never be understated and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. FTR will always be grateful to Bret Hart as well.
