With plenty of stellar contests under FTR’s belts, Dax Harwood has spoken of breaking down in tears when he watched one recent contest back.
Rising to the top levels of mainstream prominence in NXT, the team formerly known as The Revival worked alongside all the top teams coming through the brand including DIY and American Alpha. Now wrestling in AEW, the streak has continued with matches against the likes of The Young Bucks and a run as Tag Team Champions.
However, it was FTR’s recent match with The Briscoe Brothers which got to Dax Harwood the most. The contest took place at ROH’s Supercard Of Honor XV on 1st April 2022, in a contest which saw FTR walk away with the Tag Team Championships in a contest which ran almost thirty minutes and earned the coveted five stars from Dave Meltzer.
Speaking to Renee Paquette on The Sessions, Dax Harwood has commented that he gave it a couple of days to breathe after the match before watching it back, and that’s the point it all became too much for him.
That’s just what we built the match around it was just f*cking beautiful. I didn’t want to watch it for two or three days and then finally, I was like, I’m going to watch it on the elliptical. I was in the gym and I broke down in tears while I was watching it, that’s how much I loved it.
Harwood continued, explaining how for him the match meant the same as the match between Bret Hart and Steve Austin at WrestleMania 13 meant for both of those men.
I told [Cash] after the match was over, that’s our Bret and Austin. I don’t know if we’ll ever have a better match than that one and that’s okay with me. I can hang my hat on that, I can hang my hat on that whole week, them and the Bucks match.
Winning the ROH Tag Team Championships continues a glittering career for Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler, who can also put reigns as title holders in NXT, AEW and AAA on their resume.
