Dax Harwood Says Tony Khan Understands FTR Better Than Vince McMahon
Dax Harwood had some good things about how his FTR tag team is perceived by his AEW boss as compared to what it was like where the team used to work.
The FTR duo of Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler became two-time AEW Tag Team Champions after winning the titles back last week on AEW Dynamite. It was a match against The Gunns where the story was that if FTR lost they would leave AEW, but if they won they would be AEW Tag Team Champions. Did anybody really think FTR was going to lose? Probably not many people.
It was mentioned for many months by Harwood that FTR’s contracts with AEW were expiring this April after they debuted in the company three years ago. Would they stay in AEW or go back to WWE as The Revival again? Obviously, FTR made the choice to stay in AEW.
In an interview with UPROXX, Dax Harwood explained that Tony Khan understood FTR a lot better than WWE’s Vince McMahon.
“I think that Tony (Khan) gets Dax and Cash, FTR, better than Vince. I think he understands that we are average, everyday human beings that just caught on with the fans because they can relate to us, because we’re either family men or just regular human beings. We just enjoy physicality and we enjoy fighting, and I think that they can live their lives through us. (Vince has) a business track record that proves that he is obviously very intelligent to the business, but I think he thinks he knows what the Revival was better than we did.”
Dax Harwood would then go on to take a shot at Vince McMahon’s creative decisions by mentioning that WWE wanted FTR to dress up in some silly outfits in WWE.
“That’s why he came up with all those cartoon costumes he gave us. In contrast, Tony understands that no one knows who we are better than us, and no one can display our characters or show our characteristics better than we can.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Dax Harwood pitched a six-man tag team match with FTR joining forces with CM Punk against The Elite for AEW’s “All In: London” event this coming August.
