FTR Superstar Dax Harwood has revealed that a sensational return to WWE is a possibility in an exclusive interview with Inside The Ropes’ Kenny McIntosh.
With their AEW contracts set to expire in April, the duo of Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler are set to become the hottest free agents in professional wrestling.
Collectively known as FTR, the pair were recently named Wrestling Observer Tag Team Of The Year for 2022 and Harwood has admitted that the decision on their next career move is a difficult one in an exclusive chat with Inside The Ropes’ Kenny McIntosh:
“I think that every day, every, every hour of every day, my mind changes or like I think of something new, or I think of something that could affect what we’re going to do in 2023 and beyond. You know, man, there’s so many things that I want to accomplish and to continue to accomplish in wrestling, and Cash as well.
And whatever decision that I decide to make, it obviously has to be 100% on board with him too. I talked about on my podcast last week, though he told me he has his ideas of what he thinks we should do, or what he would like to do, he has his goals in mind too, and so do I. And you know, they kind of parallel each other I think, but he said his exact words were ultimately you have a family you have to look after, and whatever you want to do, whatever is the best decision for you and your family, is what I will want to do as well.
Because him and my wife and my daughter are very, very, very close. And you know, I have to take a lot of things myself, and I’m sure he does as well, but I’m just speaking for myself, I have to take a lot of things into consideration. I have to take time away from home.
Obviously money as well, because I’ve got to be able to take care of my wife and my daughter. And then going in the future too, I want to provide for my daughter and give her life that I was unfortunately, you know, I never got to have. But also, you want to make her work for it too.”
Harwood noted that both he and Wheeler were keen to leave a lasting legacy on wrestling, and with the duo feeling that they had unfinished business in WWE, signs could point to a return:
“But then on top of that, we talk about it too ad nauseam, the legacy that we want to leave in professional wrestling. That’s so important to me and to Cash. But wrestling has done so much good for me in my life. I’m not even talking about the 19 years that I’ve been wrestling, I mean beyond the 19 years. The 32 years I’ve been a fan, it has done so much to me.
Growing up all through high school. I never did drugs, I never drank alcohol, you know, I never got in trouble ever. All because I just wanted to be home watching wrestling, you know, and idolised, I’m sure you’ve heard of him before, his name is Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart. I idolised him, and I wanted to be him. And I thought that for me to be able to make him as happy and make him as proud as he made me. I had to follow his words and follow the way he portrayed himself on television. And so it’s done so much good for me. I just want to be able to do that much good for it as well.”
