AEW Star Says The Gunns “Made It To The Top Because Of Their Father”

The Gunns AEW

AEW’s Dax Harwood has given his thoughts on current AEW Tag Team Champions The Gunns and says people despise the second-generation stars.

The Gunns – Austin and Colten – were the last team to defeat FTR in AEW ahead of Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler took some time off ahead of their contracts with the company expiring.

Lovingly – or not – known as The Ass Boys, Austin and Colten upset the odds and definitely upset the crowd when they shockingly dethroned The Acclaimed for the AEW Tag Team Championship on the 8th of February edition of Dynamite.

Speaking on his FTR podcast, Dax Harwood didn’t hold back in his assessment of The Gunns but says wrestling is about making people feel something, and those watching them win the tag team title certainly felt something very strongly:

“They are guys who study the craft and try to be better. They’re also a couple of guys who made it to the top because of who their father is. They never had to be in the trenches or they’ve never had to travel to these little shitty shows to make a buck or get seen. All they know is AEW or national television wrestling.”

“With that, they may not think it and they may not be doing it on purpose, but with that, they think that everything should be catered to them. Personally, we have different thoughts and ideologies, and that’s okay, you’re not going to get along with everyone. I will say, there aren’t too many acts in wrestling that people absolutely despise. They despise these guys.”

“They get the ‘ass boys’ chants. When they won the tag belts, the people were mad. When you think about what wrestling is, you want people to be mad or to feel a certain way. They felt a certain way about that title change. Who knows what’s going to happen in the future or where the story is going?”

“There has been a story to this, this is a year long story that I wish people would stop and think, ‘Oh, you’re right.’ There is a backstory and a long history. It’s another chapter in the story. Congratulations to them, their first-ever tag team championships. I look forward to seeing what the Ass Boys and Acclaimed do next.”
