FTR have revealed that they once waited for a WWE producer after a day’s filming as they wanted to “beat the sh*t out of the backstage figure.
Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood performed together under a number of aliases in WWE from 2014 until moving to AEW in May 2020. During this six-year period, the pair became the company’s first ever Triple Crown Tag Team Champions, claiming the gold on NXT, Raw and SmackDown.
However, it was in NXT where the duo enjoyed their strongest run, with acclaimed feuds against the likes of American Alpha and Ezo and Cass.
On the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite on December 22nd, FTR teamed with MJF to take on CM Punk, Darby Allin and Sting at the Greensboro Coliseum. Speaking on Elite POV, the pair recalled the last time that they appeared at the famous venue, which involved planning to beat up an unnamed WWE producer.
“We were in Greensboro and I walked by this area and I remember, ‘Oh, this is the room where a producer in WWE said something to Cash’ and he got so mad and he came to me and was like, ‘I’m going to fight this guy.’ I said, ‘Alright, let’s do it.’ We both waited and when we got done filming, we were going to beat the shit out of him. He kept filming forever and we were like, ‘Ah, whatever,'” said Dax.
Cash added that the pair waited for half an hour while the producer kept himself busy to make sure he stayed out of harms way.
“We waited for like 30 minutes. I was determined.
He was purposely trying to stay as busy as possible. He knew I was going to kill him.”
The special Holiday Bash edition of Dynamite saw AEW’s flagship show crack one million viewers for the first time in almost three months. The show drew 1,020,000 viewers which was up from 948,000 the previous week.
