AEW Star Opens Up About Relationship With Young Bucks Deteriorating AEW

Dax Harwood of FTR has opened up about his relationship with the Young Bucks deteriorating after Full Gear 2020.

At the November 2020 pay-per-view, Matt & Nick Jackson defeated Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler for the AEW Tag Team Championship.

Speaking with Matt Koon on his FTR podcast, Harwood admitted that at the time, he felt like he and Wheeler had been lied to by AEW, who had told him that FTR would be one of the teams that the promotion’s tag division would be built around.

Also discussing his relationship with Tony Khan, Harwood said:

“I felt like we were a backdrop. I felt that everything we had been promised, when we came in, we were promised that the tag division was going to be built around these two teams, and I felt it wasn’t being built around us.

“I felt we were lied to and at the time we were being lied to. I think my relationship with Tony got even more strained, I felt the relationship with the Bucks completely deteriorated.

“I take the blame for that. I take the blame for it because I shouldn’t have taken wrestling so seriously. If Tony decided that he didn’t think we were in that league or we should’ve been presented in a certain way, it’s his company.

“Same thing with Vince (McMahon). I hold no ill will towards Vince or Tony (Khan). Tony is one of my closest buds now and I love him for what he’s done for me and my family.

“I should’ve looked back and said, ‘If Tony doesn’t look at us in this light, what can I do to prove him wrong?’ Instead, I had the same thought, but I was going to be combative and fight for it, and I shouldn’t have.

“It’s his company. If there were, if there are ill feelings between us and the Young Bucks, it was because we took it personally and we shouldn’t have taken it personally.

“I think they took how we felt personally, and they probably should have because we probably weren’t being the best team players at that point.

“I can speak for me, I wasn’t being the best team player because of all the s**t I had going on in my brain.”

Harwood and Wheeler are currently on a wrestling hiatus while they consider their next move, with their AEW contracts set to expire in April.

Harwood recently addressed the hiatus, which you can read more about right here.
