FTR want to give back to wrestling.
Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are in the midst of arguably the best run of their careers in AEW and when they eventually leave the wrestling business, they want to leave it better than they found it.
Speaking to Alistair McGeorge of Metro, FTR discussed his love of wrestling and wanting to give back.
"I feel like we owe wrestling so much. We had nothing growing up. I can tell you now that if it wasn’t for wrestling – I come from a family of addicts and I would have went that path. It was the easiest path and the one that I knew other than wrestling. If I didn’t have something to hold onto and grasp at to lead me in a different direction I would be… not good," said Cash.
Dax added, "Without wrestling, who knows? I wanna leave it better than I found it because I owe it everything. We left [WWE] together because of our legacy and we started in AEW because of our legacy, and that’s a very important thing to us. But our job is also to make sure that when we’re done and we hang it up, everybody that we worked with is better than we were before. This might get me a little heat, but Cash can tell ya I don’t give a damn about heat. We’re not gonna be the guys at 45, 50 years old and 50 plus who think that we need to go out there and still have 30-minute matches and beat everybody. That’s not us. We want to give back."
Dax & Cash are set to team with The Pinnacle at Blood & Guts against The Inner Circle on Wednesday.
The duo said that if the eight other men in the bout can match their intensity, "it will be one of the greatest and most brutal matches in the history of professional wrestling."
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
