Next week’s edition of AEW Dynamite is set to feature The Gunns putting their AEW World Tag Team Championships on the line against the returning FTR, with the added stipulation that if FTR lose, theyll leave the promotion entirely. As a result, many fans have began to question whether Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler may truly be done with AEW, with rumours also circulating in the past that WWE would be interested in bringing the duo back to the company.
Speaking recently to Scott Fishman of SEScoops, FTR’s Dax Harwood reiterated that the duo’s AEW contracts are indeed up in April, and whilst they’ve yet to officially put pen to paper, they’ve both already made the decision on where their future lies.
“I’ve been very transparent for over a year. Our contract comes up in April…Never have I said I am trying to have a bidding war with AEW and WWE. Money is great. I like money. It does factor into a decision. But for the first five years of my daughter’s life, I was leaving. All she knew was daddy’s leaving. She didn’t understand the importance of me leaving for a job so she could have the life I didn’t have. She and Maria would take me to the airport and she would cry her eyes out only because she knew daddy was leaving. More importantly than any kind of monetary gain, my decision is for my family. Then after my family comes our legacy. My best friend in the whole entire world knows every single thing about me as a performer and human being. I need to make sure I do him justice with the decision I have to make too. I think what is best for us is to look out for is our legacy. Money is great and awesome. Professional wrestling has done so much for me. I have to do just a little bit for that. We have to keep that in mind too. It took a long time to figure out what we wanted to do. There is zero pens to paper right now for our decision. We know what we want to do. We’ve got all the blessings we need. I think people will realize by next Wednesday on Dynamite they will know what our decision will be.”-Dax Harwood
This past year saw FTR capture their “seventh star”, with the pair now finding themselves as former NXT, Smackdown, Raw, AAA, IWGP, ROH, and AEW World Tag Team Champions, cementing their place in history amongst the all-time greatest tag teams.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on FTR’s future as soon as we hear more, although it’s unlikely that we’ll have to wait too much longer to gain our answer.
