FTR had a lot of embarrassing moments during their run as The Revival in WWE, but Raw 25 stays in the minds of many, including Dax Harwood.
On the January 22, 2018 edition of Raw, WWE celebrated the show’s 25th anniversary with appearances from various legends like Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker and Chris Jericho.
During their appearance during the episode, Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler were beat down by Triple H, Shawn Michaels, X-Pac, Scott Hall and the New Age Outlaws.
Speaking on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, Harwood discussed a bad experience backstage at Raw 25 with Shawn Michaels.
When talking about how upset he was about The Revival’s beatdown on the show, Dax said:
“For a lot of guys it’s like ‘oh, it’s a paycheck, who cares,’ but not to me, There’s a legacy I want to leave. But that happened and I talked to Shawn [Michaels]. That was the first time we had talked since the [Performance Center] days.
“I told him, ‘Man this happened, tore my bicep, went through a really dark period and thought I was going to quit but thankfully I have the greatest wife in the world and she has supported me and brought me out of this funk and out of this dark place and I’m here now, I’m super happy.’ He said ‘I was the same way, I was in this very dark spot that my wife, she’s beautiful, she pulled me out of this dark spot too. You and your partner are way too talented to be doing what you’re doing tonight, you are way too talented to stay at this point. Just keep your nose to the ground and keep grinding and you’ll get over.’ I said ‘oh Shawn, thank you so much.'”
Harwood continued to talk about things changed immediately when he and Michaels were in front of his friends:
“We had this bonding moment, and then we got in front of his friends, X-Pac, Hunter, Billy [Gunn], Road Dogg, Scott [Hall], and as soon as we got in front of his friends, he started making fun of me and making fun of my situation and what happened with my bicep. I was like man I just poured my heart out to you and as soon as we get in front of your friends, cause we’re going over that they’re going to beat the s–t out of us, you decide to take all of that stuff and make fun of me about it?”
Dax Harwood has said on many occasions that Bret Hart is his favorite wrestler of all time and now we know another reason why.
