Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler are considered one of the best tag teams in the pro wrestling world now. Their emphasis on old school tag team wrestling has helped them find a lot of success. Their most recent match wasn’t supposed to happen last week either.
On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, FTR and The Young Bucks had their much-awaited rematch. Unsurprisingly, it was an instant classic and already an early match of the year contender.
In the end, FTR won the match and retained their ROH and AAA Tag Team Championships. While speaking with Sports Illustrated, Nick Jackson revealed that he and his brother Matt had to convince Tony Khan to let them have the match earlier. The match wasn’t supposed to happen until later on this month originally.
“It wasn’t supposed to happen until later this month. We wanted to ride the momentum of the FTR vs. The Briscoes match because we knew they’d have a classic, and we convinced Tony to let us have it in Boston.
The one thing that put a small damper on the first meeting was having it during the pandemic. We always knew we wanted to do a rematch, it was just a matter of when and how—and we knew it had to be a packed arena. I knew the match was going to be great when FTR’s music hit and they were the most over guys in the building that night. Everything clicked from there.”
Even Jim Cornette absolutely loved the match. FTR also seemingly hinted at a feud with Kyloe O’Reilly and Bobby Fish on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. We will have to wait and see whether they will compete against each other or not.
