Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler recently made their triumphant return to All Elite Wrestling after a hiatus to challenge The Gunns for the company’s Tag Team Championships.
The future of FTR in the promotion hung in the balance as The Gunns only accepted on the condition that Harwood and Wheeler put their careers on the line. This came at a time when the team had been open about their difficulty in deciding where their future lay once their contracts expired.
On the April 6th edition of Dynamite, their fate was decided in a match that saw the champions try every trick in the book to either win or get disqualified to retain their titles.
In the end, it wasn’t enough as the challengers pinned their opponents to reach the top of the tag team division for the second time with their careers in AEW secured.

Since then, Harwood has confirmed that both have re-signed with the company and on the latest edition of Rampage said it was a four-year deal after which they plan to retire.

While FTR are now confirmed to be All Elite for the foreseeable future, Harwood’s podcast appears to be less secure. The official Twitter account for the show has ominously posted that there will be an announcement on its future on Wednesday, April 19th.
“This Wednesday We will make an announcement pertaining to the future of this podcast.”
