Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler have competed all over the world in numerous companies, further improving themselves. They are the ROH, IWGP and AAA Tag Team Champions and proudly represent themselves as such. Dax Harwood also criticized modern pro wrestling.
FTR has competed against the best of the best in the pro wrestling world. They adhere to the old school fundamentals of tag team Wrestling as well.
While speaking on “Culture State”, Dax Harwood stated that he feels modern-day pro wrestling lacks emotion. This is something that FTR is obviously work to correct.
The match we had with The Briscoes, go back and watch it. There weren’t really any big moves. All it was, was selling,” Harwood said. “… The big suplex to the floor which did hurt like hell, we sold, all of us, all of us sold for like two minutes … The thing that makes them remember is their feeling, you know? How they felt. Again, the match with the Briscoes, they’re not going to remember the suplex to the floor. That’s not — they’re going to remember the feeling they got from that. That’s all there is to it.
That’s what’s missing in wrestling, is the emotion. My wife will watch when I’m on. She has no idea what a 450 feels like, or a Shooting Star Press, or even a Snapmare, you know? She doesn’t know what those feel like, but she knows what sadness feels like, and frustration, and happiness … So when you can make people feel that then you’ve got them, and that’s when it becomes a classic.”
FTR is set to defend their ROH World Tag Team Titles against The Briscoes at ROH Death Before Dishonor on July 23rd. We’ll have to see whether they will be able to retain their titles or not.
