Dax Harwood says he will never forget the way Vince McMahon has not forgotten him all over the place

Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler are taking some time off now that their AEW contracts are set to expire in April. We likely saw the last FTR video on AEW TV.

Harwood and Wheeler are currently figuring out their next step in the professional wrestling business. As of a month ago, many fans thought a return to WWE was highly likely, since FTR trusted Triple H’s creative vision to them. However, that was before Vince McMahon played his power to return as CEO of WWE.

Now that Vince is back, there is a lot of anxiety and concern among wrestlers that it is only a matter of time until he calls the shots as a booker. raw And SmackDown.

In the last episode of FTR with Dax HarwoodDax explains that WWE is a less attractive place for him now that Vince is back. He illustrates this point by explaining how McMahon tried to make him feel like shit after he won the 2010 World Championships SmackDown Tag team titles from the new day in 2019.

When the match ended, the four wrestlers reunited for the match with Vince backstage. Bear Harwood, McMahon praised The New Day for their performance in the match. FTR was hoping Vince would have similar reactions for them, but instead he tried to make them feel like crap:

“And this time [McMahon] He says, “Everyone tells me you guys are the next great tag team. Everyone tells me you’re the next Arn and Tully. Well that’s your problem. You’re the next Arn and Tully. You’re just two great wrestlers. That’s it.” And go.

And I’m like, this son of a bitch thinks he hurt my feelings by saying that. But he didn’t. He made my dreams come true by letting me know that we are the next Earn and Tully. We are just an awesome tag team. We’re just great wrestlers.”

“He just didn’t like us. He wasn’t infatuated with us. I think it had a lot to do with that accent I have… He didn’t like us for some reason. And he made sure to tell us that today. With our brand new belts in our hands, at the highest level. We’re the first champions.” A triple tag team in WWE.WWE Raw,WWE SmackDown,WWE NXT,no one did it at the time,except for us.And we were so proud of that moment.And he decided to ignore us for that moment.

That’s the thing I’ll never forget as a human being, how you try to make people feel. Since the fans were with us, we obviously didn’t hurt your business. We went out there, put our lives on the line, for you, for your company, and kick back with so many endorphins coursing through our bodies, you decide to say it to us. This is one of the things I can’t forget.

And we’re talking about what I’m going to do in the future, and now that I think about it, with him back driving, uh, he’s making things a little questionable for me.”

Harwood’s issues with Vince continued throughout their time on the main roster, including once when WWE required The Revival to work 17 consecutive days on the road. Harwood also stated that their on-screen partnership with Randy Orton was cut short because Vince didn’t like them, and Vince frequently made last-minute changes to the script that drove everyone crazy. And don’t get Dax started with the 24/7 title, which he won at one point but would refuse to do so again, because it’s a title that diminishes his position on the card.

Dax and Cash were so frustrated with their poor creations in WWE that they asked for their release and turned down big money offers to stay for several years.

Harwood recalls that a lot of fans said they should be happy collecting WWE paychecks, even if they were stuck catering. Aside from the obvious issue of job dissatisfaction, Dax made it clear that fans have the wrong idea of ​​how much money they make. He said his first major contract was for about $125,000. That’s as low as what WWE’s main roster deals are, and the number shrinks dramatically when all the travel expenses that come with living on the road four to five days a week are factored in.

By the time they requested their release from WWE, there was no dollar amount who was willing to sacrifice his happiness and mental health in order to remain in WWE. He turned down contracts ranging from $450,000 to nearly $1 million a year.

This is how Dax Harwood wanted Vince McMahon to escape WWE. Now that Vince is back in power, I wouldn’t bet we’ll see FTR appear in WWE anytime soon.
