Dax Harwood is looking to accomplish more in wrestling and has spoken on what that means for FTR.
Harwood has been discussing that both FTR tag partners have “ideas” for what’s next, following a break from AEW.
During an interview with Inside The Ropes, Dax Harwood made it clear that before making any moves, the plans need to be mutually beneficial to both himself and Cash Wheeler, before sharing the importance of looking after his family and the team’s legacy will play on the decision-making process.
“I think that every day, every, every hour of every day, my mind changes or like I think of something new, or I think of something that could affect what we’re going to do in 2023 and beyond. You know, man, there’s so many things that I want to accomplish and to continue to accomplish in wrestling, and Cash as well.”
“And whatever decision that I decide to make, it obviously has to be 100% on board with him too. I talked about on my podcast last week, though he told me he has his ideas of what he thinks we should do, or what he would like to do, he has his goals in mind too, and so do I.”
“And you know, they kind of parallel each other I think, but he said his exact words were ultimately you have a family you have to look after, and whatever you want to do, whatever is the best decision for you and your family, is what I will want to do as well.”
“Because him and my wife and my daughter are very, very, very close. And you know, I have to take a lot of things myself, and I’m sure he does as well, but I’m just speaking for myself, I have to take a lot of things into consideration. I have to take time away from home.”
As he continued, Dax Harwood also mentioned that money is important since he’s a family man that’s taking care of his family.
“Obviously money as well, because I’ve got to be able to take care of my wife and my daughter. And then going in the future too, I want to provide for my daughter and give her life that I was unfortunately, you know, I never got to have. But also, you want to make her work for it too. But then on top of that, we talk about it too ad nauseam, the legacy that we want to leave in professional wrestling. That’s so important to me and to Cash. But wrestling has done so much good for me in my life.”
Dax Harwood followed up by discussing the role wrestling has played in his life, looking at not just his professional career, but being a fan for over 30 years and how he idolized Bret Hart.
“I’m not even talking about the 19 years that I’ve been wrestling, I mean beyond the 19 years. The 32 years I’ve been a fan, it has done so much to me. Growing up, this may make me sound holier than thou or not cool. But growing up all through high school. I never did drugs, I never drank alcohol, you know, I never got in trouble ever. All because I just wanted to be home watching wrestling, you know, and idolized, I’m sure you’ve heard of him before, his name is Bret The Hitman Hart.”
“I idolized him, and I wanted to be him. And I thought that for me to be able to make him as happy and make him as proud as he made me. I had to follow his words and follow the way he portrayed himself on television. And so it’s done so much good for me. I just want to be able to do that much good for it as well.”
Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood became the first ever WWE Tag Team Triple Crown Champions whilst named The Revival, lifting both the NXT and Raw Tag Team Championships twice before winning the Smackdown Belts.
Since leaving WWE, the pair have won Tag Titles in AEW, Ring of Honor, New Japan and Lucha Libre. Dax Harwood recently discussed a leave of absence from AEW, with speculation linking a potential return to WWE now that Triple H has been handed control of on screen creative.
