FTR Explain Decision To Stay With AEW & Not Return To WWE AEW

Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler have commented on their decision to re-sign with AEW instead of returning to WWE.

Following speculation about their contracts coming to an end this month, FTR won the AEW Tag Team Championship on the April 5 edition of Dynamite.

After the title change, it was confirmed that FTR will be staying with AEW instead of leaving, following speculation that they were going to return to a Triple H-led WWE.

Speaking with Raj Prashad of Uproxx, Dax Harwood confirmed that he and Wheeler had made their decision prior to WWE announcing its sale to Endeavor.

Discussing their AEW futures, the duo noted:

Harwood: “I think that Tony (Khan) gets Dax and Cash, FTR, better than Vince.

“I think he understands that we are average, everyday human beings that just caught on with the fans because they can relate to us, because we’re either family men or just regular human beings.

“We just enjoy physicality and we enjoy fighting, and I think that they can live their lives through us. (Vince has) a business track record that proves that he is obviously very intelligent to the business, but I think he thinks he knows what the Revival was better than we did.

“That’s why he came up with all those cartoon costumes he gave us. In contrast, Tony understands that no one knows who we are better than us, and no one can display our characters or show our characteristics better than we can.

Wheeler: “The conversations we have with Tony, the relationship we have with Tony compared to (Triple H) or Vince, we get along well with both those guys over there.

“Vince, to our faces anyway, was always very respectful, respected our work. Same with Hunter.

“But with Tony, I feel like we can have open, honest discussions with him about how we feel, where we think we need to change something or pivot. And I know that he’s receptive to it.”

It was officially announced last week that Endeavor has purchased WWE and will merge it into one sports and entertainment company with the UFC.
