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. Harwood was also injured before FTR’s first match against The Briscoes.
For a long time, fans had been clamoring to see a match between FTR and The Briscoes. Finally, the two battled it out at the ROH Supercard Of Honor pay-per-view on April 1st.
It turned out to be one of the best tag team matches in recent memory. FTR beat The Briscoes to become the ROH Tag Team Champions for the first time. While speaking to WebIsJericho, Dax Harwood revealed that he had suffered a torn labrum before FTR’s first match against The Briscoes.
“I got that [a torn labrum] right before the match with The Briscoes. I took a suplex on the floor, and it’s still very uncomfortable just to sit down. To walk or to run it doesn’t bother me, but to sit down, it just kills me. Every match you have, I don’t care how old you are or how young you are, every match is gonna take a toll on your body.
We’ll take a move, even just a shoulder tackle — a shoulder tackle hurts so bad. We’ll take this move, and you’ll watch guys get right back up and smile and laugh. And in my mind, I’m like, ‘I gotta go home to my daughter, and that one tackle, that one bump hurt so bad that I can’t play with her.’ So why are we telling these fans this doesn’t hurt? ‘Watch. The ring is springy, it’s like a trampoline.’ It’s the complete opposite. Everything hurts.”
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.
