Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler are undoubtedly one of the best tag teams in the world right now. FTR quickly established themselves as a top team after their arrival in AEW as they won the AEW World Tag Team Championships.

However, their time in WWE was a mixed bag as they had a tremendous run in NXT but had a very subpar run on the main roster, where they were hardly utilized to the best of their abilities.

FTR used to be known as The Revival in WWE and at one time, they had a very brief alliance with Randy Orton on Friday Night Smackdown. While speaking to Renee Paquette of The Sessions, Dax Harwood revealed that both he and Cash Wheeler are thankful to Randy Orton for fighting very hard for them in WWE.

”I will go on record and say that there was no one else who fought harder for us than Randy. Maybe Roman, you know, it was a close second, but Randy fought super hard for us. The whole FT RKO thing was not supposed to be a thing, but it worked. We worked together and so we worked through house shows together and he was so impressed with myself and Cash and being able to call stuff in the ring and we got along on the tour buses and stuff and it was just easy.


Randy Orton teamed up with The Revival to feud with The New Day back in 2019, which saw The Revival beating The New Day for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships at WWE Clash of Champions. While they are both in different companies now, the time FTR shared with Randy Orton is certainly not forgotten.
