Owen Hart men’s tournament qualifying match was held last week, where fans saw a unique matchup between tag partners. In a recent interview, FTR discussed the homages to Owen Hart in the said bout.

Dax and Cash appeared on the latest episode of SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio, where Cash spoke about how they didn’t want to overdo homage to Owen Hart. Instead, they want to pay their respects right. Wheeler also drew parallels to the infamous match between Owen and Bret Hart at WrestleMania 10.

“That’s one thing we wanted to do also, was not over do it,” FTR’s Cash Wheeler said. “So if you look back at it, the only two things we really did was, I teased the foot scrape, like Owen did to Bret [Hart]. That was directly an homage to that match [Owen vs. Bret at WrestleMania 10]. And then the Victory Roll Reversal where he almost won. Everything after that, he missed the Diving Headbutt, we didn’t want to span it again with taking stuff from them, but we did want to pay respects to the fact that it’s the Owen Hart Tournament. We took a lot of pride in that.”

The match eventually ended up with Dax Harwood’s victory over his partner to advance to the first round. While several sequences in that match paid homages to Owen Hart, the main thing the pair did not want to see was the cheap reaction, as they took a lot of pride in that match.
