During an interview with WrestleTalk, FTR Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler discussed their desire to wrestle legendary tag team, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express.
If you recall, back on the August 20th episode of Dynamite, the AEW Tag Team Champions had a segment with the legendary team.
In fact, FTR shocked everyone by hitting a spike piledriver on Ricky Morton. Harwood mentioned that they’ve begged AEW President Tony Khan to wrestle the 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.
He 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 defend the AEW Tag Team Titles against The Young Bucks at this Saturday’s AEW Full Gear pay-per-view event.
