Vince McMahon Told Ex-WWE Star They Had “The Worst Match He’d Ever Seen”

Vince McMahon

AEW star Dax Harwood may have been part of several critically acclaimed matches in 2022, but he has recalled how Vince McMahon bestowed upon him and three others the distinction of having the worst match he’d ever seen.

During Harwood’s time in WWE, he and partner Cash Wheeler – then known as The Revival – shared the ring with the duo of Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows dozens of times. The OC even dethroned The Revival for the Raw Tag Team Championship in 2019 in a triple threat match that also involved The Usos.

However, one other match sticks in the memory of Dax Harwood as he discussed on his FTR podcast. According to Harwood, the four stars were given a stern dressing down by Vince McMahon, who despite his decades of experience in the business, felt they had the absolute worst match he’d ever seen:

“It was a running joke between us [FTR and Good Brothers], because we had worked together so much throughout the year, that they didn’t care who won, just whoever won before, the other team would win the next time. We would always play the game of flip-flopping. ‘It’s your turn to win today.’”

“Then, we had a match at Royal Rumble, maybe it was Raw, whatever. We come to the back and Vince (McMahon) is waiting for us, all four of us. We thought the match was good. it was like an eight-minute match. We came to the back and he said, ‘Welp, that was absolutely the worst wrestling match I’ve ever seen in my entire life.’ The worst wrestling match he has ever seen. This man has been in the business for 50 years. This was the worst match he’s ever seen in his entire life.”

“Since the 70s, owning the company since 83. You can ask Anderson or Gallows, he said it’s the worst he’s ever seen.”

“I kind of took it as a badge of pride. You’ve been through the (Hulk) Hogan era, (Steve) Austin era, Bret (Hart) era, you’ve seen every match possible. Top to bottom. You’ve seen Sivi Afi, dude. Sivi Afi and we had the absolute worst match of all time. That’s kind of an accomplishment. It was a lot of fun back then. I hope no one has reached that bar. I hope we’re still the worst match he’s ever seen. To be fair, I don’t think he knows we were employed there for eight years.”

Dax Harwood also discussed his opinion of Paul Heyman who, it is safe to say, he has serious trust issues with.
