Dax Harwood Pitches Dream Match For AEW “All In” At Wembley Stadium
If it was up to Dax Harwood, AEW would do a dream tag team match at the company’s debut show at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
The last week was very newsworthy not just for All Elite Wrestling as a company, but for the FTR tag team consisting of Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler, who are now two-time AEW Tag Team Champions.
During the April 5th edition of AEW Dynamite, AEW’s CEO Tony Khan, Adam Cole (BAY BAY) and newcomer Nigel McGuinness made a huge announcement. On Sunday, August 27th, AEW will make their United Kingdom debut when they present “AEW All In: London” at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
Later on that same episode of
In an interview with UPROXX, Dax Harwood suggested a dream six-man tag team match for the Wembley show.
“CM Punk and FTR versus the Elite. That’s gotta be it, right? If you want to sell 50,000 tickets and take this company to the next level, that’s it, that’s me dreaming. That’s the dream match. That six-man tag in Wembley Stadium could help launch AEW to the next level.”
The Elite trio are AEW Executive Vice Presidents Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson). Omega is a former AEW World Champion, The Young Bucks are former AEW Tag Team Champions and The Elite trio are two-time AEW Trios Tag Team Champions as well.
Whether that match happens depends on if AEW brings back CM Punk as a wrestler. It’s a big question mark at this point since Punk got into a backstage fight with The Elite last September. Punk suffered a torn triceps at that All Out pay-per-view as well, but he’s ready now or close to it.
Dax Harwood’s tag team partner Cash Wheeler also spoke about how big the Wembley Stadium event is while saying that AEW has to be ambitious.
“Wembley Stadium is huge for AEW. AEW has to be ambitious right now. We’ve done so much as a company over the past three years that everybody said we couldn’t do. When Tony said we’re going to sell 20,000 (tickets at Arthur Ashe Stadium), that seemed ridiculous to people at the time. Everybody wants to keep moving the goalposts. Everybody wants to keep saying you can’t do this.”
“I love that we’re going to Wembley because even if it’s not completely to the brim full, 50-, 60-, 70,000, whatever it ends up being, that’s huge for this company. As a company that’s only a couple years into its existence. You can’t play it safe all the time. The roster right now is so deep, why not go for it?”
Early pre-sales for the AEW All In London show are strong with over 25,000 people already signing up to get a code. Meanwhile, AEW’s Matt Hardy believes the company can get 50,000+ people in the stadium. It sounds like FTR’s Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler expect it too.
