One WWE star “would love” to see FTR return to the company after their AEW contracts run out this April.
Chad Gable joined athletes from the Special Olympics for a training session last Friday in San Antonio, Texas. As part of the event, Gable spoke with media and discussed the possibility of reuniting with FTR in the coming months.
“Selfishly, I would love it. Those guys were and are guys that I consider professional rivals, but also my best friends, which, sometimes that’s the best combo because not only can we push each other, but we really challenge each other in a way that I’ve never been challenged by other people. And I think it’s such a competitive nature between us, me and those guys, that’s what created some of the magic that we had back then.”
“And it’s not lost on me that it could happen again. And I think you’d see now with some of the character evolutions that we’ve had, and just all of us maturing a little bit over these years, might see the next level in the next iteration of that, if it were to ever happen.”
Dax Harwood recently addressed the contract situation and absence from AEW shows. Following an incredible run which has included FTR lifting the Tag Team Championship in AEW, New Japan and Ring of Honor, the pair would be a coup signing for WWE.
Chad Gable also spoke on his relationship with Kurt Angle, sharing how as a teenager, the Alpha Academy member was a fan and went to meet his Olympic Hero.
We’ve done a lot of the ‘Table for 3’ stuff where we talk and share stories. And I think I’ve told this story before, but I met him at Mall of America when I was… It was one of his first years with WWE after his tape, his VHS came out and I brought it, got him to sign it, and told him like, ‘I’m going to be in WWE someday.’ I don’t know how old I was. I was young.”
“And he’s like, ‘Alright, good luck. We’ll see you down there.’ And then 15 years later, I was wrestling him in Chicago, like in WWE, so it’s a very interesting, unique story, man. Life will take you funny places, man.”
