AEW Star Says They ‘Shoot’ Don’t Get Along With FTR Backstage & Doesn’t Care About Their Future Plans

AEW Star Says They ‘Shoot’ Don’t Get Along With FTR Backstage & Doesn’t Care About Their Future Plans AEW

A pair of AEW stars shared that not only do they not get along with FTR anymore, they don’t care if they come back to AEW or not.

After online buzz remains high that perhaps FTR could make a return to challenge for the AEW Tag Team Championships, at least one star doesn’t care.

In a new interview with WrestleZone, Colten Gunn commenting that earlier in their careers, they hoped to emulate Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler, the tag team known as FTR.

Colten Gunn said:

“So when we got into it, we had to look at a team that we wanted to emulate and be like and we just gravitated towards FTR. We’d ask them questions all the time and look for guidance. We respected them so much and then we wrestled them the first time. We’ve wrestled them four times and when we wrestled them the first time, we were so excited.

“Right after that match, everything changed with us and FTR. They no longer saw us [as somebody they helped], they saw us as peers and they saw exactly how good we were. They didn’t have time for us anymore so we made it our vendetta that we were gonna end their legacy and we did. We beat them…”

With Austin Gunn going on to elaborate:

“Yeah, I got sent a few things on Twitter that Dax was talking about us on his podcast and it just put all of that into perspective.”

“Shoot, me and Colten don’t get along with FTR anymore backstage. So like he said, we don’t care where they go. We don’t care about their contracts, we don’t care about them coming back. That’s shoot. We don’t get along. We hate to see it come to that.

“I never wanna bash any other wrestlers, but I think they wanted to be these guys backstage where everybody came and asked them questions and they wanted to be the veterans backstage and when me and Colten no longer asked them for advice, I think they took that personally and now you can feel it backstage. We don’t talk to them, they don’t talk to us. I don’t care. I don’t care.”

The Gunns are the current AEW Tag Team Champions and are set to defend their titles at AEW Revolution on Sunday March 5th, 2023 against The Acclaimed, Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal and a team as yet to be determined.
