Last night at AEW Fyter Fest, FTR were involved in one of the best matches of the night when they teamed with The Young Bucks to take on The Butcher, The Blade, Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr.
Seriously, if you are doubting just how stacked AEW’s tag team division is and haven’t seen that match, I strongly urge you do to so.
FTR and The Young Bucks were unsuccessful in their match last night, with Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler picking up their first losses since joining AEW a few months ago.
Speaking about the change from WWE to AEW, FTR spoke on Busted Open Radio about using the spike piledriver, something they weren’t able to use in WWE:
“The shatter machine, we have to, well we don’t have to, but we enjoy calling it the goodnight express, is a move we took from another great tag team you may have heard from. We incorporated that and put our own little spin on it. But, going to AEW with the spike piledriver, that’s something we always wanted to use in WWE. We even talked to Hunter about it and he said no. We asked other people.
“We asked Vince about it and they obviously didn’t want to use the spike piledriver at all. We came to AEW and we started incorporating the spike piledriver just almost as a restart for us. It is something we want to incorporate into our matches. But, for the shatter machine, no one has ever kicked out of it. We learned that from another great tag team that had the same kind of finisher with the same kind of premise. No one ever kicked out of it. We just want to take the spike piledriver and utilize it to its fullest extent.”
Next week at Fight for the Fallen, we are going to see FTR compete in what many people are calling a dream match with The Lucha Brothers. You can see the other matches that have been booked for next week’s show by clicking here.
