FTR Begged Tony Khan To Wrestle The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express

FTR recently sat down with WrestleTalk ahead of their title defense at AEW Full Gear. Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler talk about their desire to wrestle tag team legends The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express. 

Back on the August 12th episode of AEW Dynamite, the AEW Tag Team Champions had a segment with the legendary team. During the segment, FTR shocked everyone by hitting a spike piledriver on Ricky Morton. 

Harwood mentions that they’ve begged AEW President Tony Khan to wrestle the tag team legends.

“We’ve begged Tony [Khan]. Both of us have begged him multiple times to please book this match, please book this match”. He’s apprehensive and he has his reasons to be apprehensive. There could be backlash from the internet saying these guys are, because of COVID, maybe they’re more suseptible to the virus. There is backlash and there is reasons why he isn’t doing it yet. I understand that but man, FTR vs. Rock ‘n’ Roll is great on the marquee, but also the way that myself and Cash, and I’ve talked about it all the time, but the way that we wanna make people feel, that match would help us make people feel a certain way.

Harwood continued by noting that for whatever reason, but people feel a certain way for Morton just like they do.

“That would help us evoke so much emotion… because if we got the chance to beat on Ricky Morton that would help our stock rise. You know, just the Spike Piledriver rose our stock so much more than a year of having great matches, and that would just help us so much if we can ever get that done.”

FTR will take on The Young Bucks with their AEW Tag Team Titles on the line at this Saturday’s AEW Full Gear PPV.
