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. They also aren’t upset over their removal from the upcoming AEW video game.

AEW fans are excited about the idea of a video game from the company. AEW: Fight Forever is expected to be released sometime this year, and many fans wanted to play as FTR.

However, FTR was removed from the game for some reason. While speaking to Give Me Sport, FTR addressed their removal. FTR made it clear they are not upset and blame anyone for their exclusion from the game.

Cash Wheeler was the first to open up about the subject as he said, “For us, the only real issue is we were kind of blindsided by it. We found out, not how you would expect. When you find out something like that, something major like being taken out of a video game, your mind automatically assumes the worst. For us, it was like, ‘is this something we need to worry about? Should we read between the lines here. Were we not told for a reason? Now that we are aware, and we are out, what is that reason? Is it something we should worry about?’ We got an answer, it made a lot of sense, a very logical answer. Okay, cool, as long as we don’t have to worry about it, non-issue. That’s what it was. We’ve known about it since May, June, I don’t know how long, but for months. The fact that it came out yesterday, no idea why. Don’t know exactly what happened yesterday, don’t know why it just now became a headline, but we’ve known about it for a while, we got answers on it a while ago and for us, it’s not even an issue or thought about.”

Dax then added, “The headline (for this) can be, ‘FTR is not upset, FTR does not blame anyone for pulling us out of the game.’ We heard about this, I want to say March, it was before the Briscoes match (at ROH Supercard of Honor) and we heard about it a long time ago. I had someone message me, one of the journalists messaged me and said, ‘Is this true?’ I thought I did respond to him. The first thing I did is text Cash, obviously. ‘Have you heard about this?’ ‘No, let’s text Tony (Khan) and find out.’ We text Tony, we went through the right chain of commands. We text Tony, talked to him. Legal texted us, talked with them a bit, we got our answer, and it was a non-issue. We wanted to make sure we weren’t doing something wrong and if there was something we could do to correct that, let us know. Months later, this article comes out, I couldn’t believe it didn’t come out in March. It blindsided both of us. I don’t care to be in the video game. My worry is leaving a legacy, having fun with my best friend, and on top of all that, taking care of Maria [Wife] and Finley [Daughter].”

Fans are naturally upset over their inclusion, but nothing much can be done about it now. Regardless, it remains to be seen just how good the game will turn out to be in the end.
