FTR are tag team specialists, but how about six-man tag team specialists?
With All Elite Wrestling's tag team division blossoming, to the tune of about 20 teams, many fans have pitched the idea of six-man tag team championship belts. However, they've popped up in both New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor, only to be quickly forgotten and rarely used. The former Revival duo aren't in any hurry for AEW to adopt more tag team titles.
"Maybe eventually down the line, but that’d be trying to run before we can walk," Cash Wheeler told Fightful. "We’re still trying to build up the tag team division and establish all the players there and make people care about every team as individuals and human beings. So, we don’t need to bring more championships into the fold when these aren’t even established. They’re less than a year old. We don’t need to bring more six man teams into the fold when we’re still trying to establish the two man. So, maybe down the line, but I think it’s unnecessary right now."
Even though FTR isn't over the moon about it, as of right now The Elite, Jurassic Express, The Dark Order, SCU, Strong Hearts, Inncer Circle, Private Party & Matt Hardy, and Orange + Best Friends would already have that division looking strong. Hypothetically if FTR did need a third, who would they end up wanting?
"I think that maybe the only person in AEW that is not afraid of the heat as much as us is [Chris] Jericho, but he’s already got his own thing going on. I don’t know if there are too many people that fit in or maybe we don’t fit in with them there. Because we understand that there’s a line between having great wrestling matches and drawing money, and I want to have as many great wrestling matches as I can, but more than that I want to draw money. Because that money is what’s going to allow me to pay for my daughter’s education, gonna allow me to pay for my house that my wife wants to buy and all the bills we’ve got to pay. If there is one person I could pick, maybe I would say the closest to us, and he’s a New Yorker, so that’s pretty funny, is MJF. He may be the closest one to FTR. He can go out and talk the talk and not really care if someone gets a little heated with him. But, to be fair, he is one of the guys that got upset with us for being on Jim Cornette’s podcast. So, I don’t know," Dax Harwood stated.
As of now, Fightful has heard of no plans involving six-man tag team championships within All Elite Wrestling.
