Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler have established themselves as all-time greats when it comes to tag team wrestling and their overall contributions to the industry already. FTR used to hold the ROH, AAA and IWGP Tag Team Titles, but they lost the ROH titles recently. Even after that, FTR has been on a losing streak, which has worried fans. In fact, Jim Cornette now believes people still stop caring about the tag team due to their recent string of losses.

FTR ended up losing their ROH Tag Team Titles earlier this month at ROH Final Battle, where they had an all-time classic war with The Briscoes. They also ended up losing to The Gunns on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.

While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette talked about FTR’s current plight in AEW. Cornette stated that he believes due to FTR’s current string of losses, people will just stop caring about FTR in general.

“A lot of more casual fans than we are, instead of bemoaning that [FTR losing often] they are not really offended by it because they are not in the profession. So they just go, ‘Yeah yeah those guys, well I’ll like somebody else.’ And that’s the way that you basically rub off the appeal of any talent. If they are obviously good, people obviously like them and they never succeed then sooner or later people will stop giving a ***.”

FTR is also expected to lose the AAA World Tag Team Championships sooner than expected. FTR is still evaluating their options once their AEW contracts expire, so it remains to be seen whether FTR will end up returning to WWE next year. For the time being, things don’t look good for FTR.
