Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler have established themselves as one of the greatest tag teams in the modern day. While they are respected for their work inside the ring, they have been criticized for their behavior online for the past few months. Now it appears that Harwood will be ending his FTR podcast for good.
As previously reported, Dax Harwood was met with a lot of negativity online as a hater who wanted him to lose his job. This ended up affecting Dax Harwood’s mental health in a big way.
Right after this, Dax Harwood revealed that he was going to make a huge announcement regarding the future of his FTR podcast. Naturally, people started wondering if he was going to end the podcast.
While speaking on his FTR podcast with Matt Koon, Dax Harwood revealed that he will be shutting down his podcast for good. Harwood added that it affected his mental health and did more harm than good to professional wrestling.
”When we started this podcast, we just wanted to do good for wrestling. I was looking forward to and, I still did, looking forward to bringing my thoughts on psychology, in-ring action, what I thought was good wrestling, my love for Bret Hart, and break down some of the things that we had done in our career and some of our biggest moments. Never in a million years, I knew that we probably would ruffle a few feathers, I know that I can.
The only thing I should apologise for is how the journalists and the news sites took a section of something I said and made it seem like I was such a bad human being. I want to apologise to not only my fans…I want to apologise to the people who already didn’t like me and fans of, for example, the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, fans of MJF, or anybody else who I may have upset. I want to apologise to them because I never wanted you to hate me so much that you would say some of the things you said to me. Going into this podcast, I never thought that would happen and I hate that it happened.
Again, I thought I was way more mentally tough than I am but I admit that I’m not and I don’t think I can handle some of the things that are said. I also don’t know if I want my daughter 10 years from now to read some of the things that are said about me. But, ultimately, we all wanted to do good for wrestling and I don’t think that this podcast, as much as we tried, as hard as we tried, I don’t think the podcast was reflecting that for whatever reason.”
Many fans had come to like Dax Harwood’s podcast, as he freely spoke his mind there over a variety of topics. Unfortunately, fans will never get to hear Dax Harwood speak his mind ever again after the rampant toxicity he had to endure on social media.
