You know when you’re on an incredible run when even the competition have to admit that you’re the very best in the world.
While FTR have been one of the more highly regarded tag teams in the world for a number of years, 2022 has seen their stock skyrocket.
Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler began the year with AAA tag team gold and have since added both the Ring of Honor and IWGP World Tag Team Titles. Not only that the two men have appeared in a number of highly acclaimed bouts across numerous promotions. Their bouts with The Briscoes and The Young Bucks will undoubtedly be remembered for years to come.
In fact, their run as has been so good, even stars in WWE have been forced to take notice.
In response to a social media post from Sportskeeda asking if FTR were the best in the world, Monday Night Raw star Mustafa Ali replied that he believes that they are.
Yeah, yeah they are.

It has recently been announced that FTR will be putting their ROH World Tag Team Titles on the line against The Briscoes at ROH Death Before Dishonor on July 23rd.
FTR famously defeated the ROH stars at Supercard of Honor in April. The near-half hour long bout garnered acclaim across the board, and a five star rating from Dave Meltzer.
The match is the third championship bout to be confirmed for the show with Samoa Joe defending the World Television Championship against Jay Lethal and Wheeler Yuta defending the Pure Championship against Daniel Garcia in a Pure Rules Match.
