FTR Reveals That They Have An Almost Handshake Deal With AEW

FTR (Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler) (F.K.A The Revival in WWE) was recently a guest on The Jim Cornette Experience podcast to talk about a number of topics, which includes how they started a couple of years ago, which ultimately was the start of their feud with the Young Bucks, if their appearance on an episode of Being The Elite was any indication of a long-term deal with AEW and how they believe their relationship with AEW President and CEO Tony Khan began.

Below are the highlights from the interview:

On how they started a couple of years ago, which ultimately was the start of their feud with the Young Bucks:

“You know, we have no professional qualms with them or jealousy towards them, but it did bother us that in 2016, they never came to us and asked us, ‘Hey is it okay that we do this?’ They just out of the blue started saying it.”

“Well, I think that’s because when you say it on an internet show, without the consent of the person, there’s no fear of retaliation.” “So, you don’t have to worry about getting punched in the mouth by the person you’re saying it about, because you can hide — you get the anonymity of hiding behind social media, or the internet, or your phone screen.”

On if their appearance on an episode of Being The Elite was any indication of a long-term deal with AEW:

“So, we’re negotiating still.” “We have a short-term, almost handshake deal, because they want to get this thing done finally, because it’s been talked about for so many years. So, we’re not under any long-term obligation with anybody.”

On how they believe their relationship with AEW President and CEO Tony Khan began:

“First and foremost, Tony has been great to us. He has trusted us, and you know, he’s got trust in us, full trust, which is probably why he’s allowing us to appear on these handshake deals.” “And me and Cash you know, we are men of our words, like we said earlier. But he’s been great to us and he’s a huge fan of the wrestling business, and more importantly, at least to us and our pocketbooks, he’s a fan of ours, because he loved Mid-South stuff.”

“But, you know, I think he really believes that with myself and Cash, he really believes that we are the guys who can get over. During this pandemic, he wants us to give this match with the Bucks that everyone’s been dreaming about for years, and years, and years, and he wants to be the first guy to get that match.”
