Just over a week ago now on the post-Double or Nothing episode of Dynamite, the debut we’d all been waiting for happened as FTR appeared on AEW TV. The duo formerly known as The Revival in WWE planted the seeds for an eventual dream match with The Young Bucks.
Despite being set to make their AEW in-ring debuts next week against The Butcher and The Blade, FTR has revealed during an Instagram live stream that they have not yet signed official AEW contracts, and are currently just working on handshake agreements with the promotion.
Because they have yet to sign official AEW contracts, the duo will be able to take independent bookings once shows resume following the Coronavirus pandemic. During the stream yesterday evening, FTR namedropped Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson as people they’d want to work with.
There is no word if FTR are planning on signing proper AEW contracts in the coming weeks or months. For the latest on this, make sure you stay tuned to WrestleTalk.com.
WrestleTalk’s Louis Dangoor exclusively reported back in April that FTR had no intention of signing exclusive contracts with AEW, as they had a desire to work in Japan and the UK.
Due to the travel bans imposed by the Coronavirus, that hasn’t been possible yet, but don’t be surprised to see the duo on a whole load of shows in different countries over the coming months once restrictions are lifted.
