FTR gained prominence in the tag team world because of their incredible chemistry and the ability to put on clinics inside the squared circle. Tomorrow, they wrestle at Japan’s biggest wrestling show of the year.
Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler will put their IWGP Tag Team Championship against Hirooki Goto and Yoshi-Hashi at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 PPV event at the Tokyo Dome.
Wheeler took to Twitter ahead of the match to recall the travel headaches that nearly caused him to miss out on the big pay-per-view event. Check out his tweet here:
7am Monday: Issue with paperwork. Can’t board my flight to Japan. Bad.
7pm Monday: flight to ATL for new Tuesday morning flight delayed. Then cancelled.
10pm Monday: drive to ATL.
4:15am: Arrive at hotel.
WrestleKingdom day: land & go straight to the Dome. Can’t miss this.
The event is set to being at 3 a.m. ET/12 am PT. Preliminary matches will begin at 2:00 a.m. ET. The event will be headlined by Jay White defending his IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Kazuchika Okada in the main event. You can read the full card by clicking here.
