Last night at Fyter Fest, FTR and The Young Bucks were defeated in a fantastic eight-man tag team match by The Butcher, The Blade, Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr.
Following on from this, AEW announced that next week at Fight for the Fallen, we are going to see FTR go head-to-head with The Lucha Brothers in what many people are labelling a “dream match”.
To promote Fyter Fest, FTR appeared on Busted Open Radio, where Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood also spoke about their time working for Vince McMahon and WWE.
During their appearance, the team formerly known as The Revival spoke about pitching to do a specific move in WWE, which was rejected by Vince and Triple H. You can read more about that by clicking here.
In the same interview, Dax and Cash also spoke about the frustrations they felt while working for WWE, having the following to say on the matter:
“Obviously, in the WWE we had a lot to be thankful for. Right now, I’m sitting in my house and I’m looking at my beautiful wife and daughter and I am thankful they gave me the opportunity to allow my family to have the life they did. On the flip side of that, my first love before my wife and daughter was professional wrestling. I am infatuated with professional wrestling. It’s done so much for me as a kid and into adulthood.
“We both felt like if we stayed in the WWE that we would just be spinning our wheels. There is so much more I want to give back to professional wrestling. I don’t want to just sit back and relax. I don’t want to rest on any laurels or anything like that. We want to leave a mark and we want to leave a legacy in professional wrestling, and obviously, on top of that, we want to make money too. With AEW and Tony Khan, they provided us the opportunity to do both and we think for the legacy we want to leave for wrestling. We want to do wrestling proud and I think this is the best opportunity to do wrestling proud.”
FTR are killing it now with AEW, and it is only a matter of time before we see the dream match between them and The Young Bucks, something fans have been clamoring for for a number of years now.
