AEW's FTR Reveal When They Lost Faith In WWE
"I'm not sure we lost faith in Hunter that day as much as we lost faith in that company..."
FTR (WWE's The Revival, of course) made their in-ring debut on this week's AEW Dynamite, defeating The Butcher and The Blade.
Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood left WWE earlier this year after being granted their respective releases and during a recent interview on the Jim Cornette Experience, Harwood revealed the moment their WWE main roster run started to turn sour: "Raw 25 came along and we had heard rumblings of what we were doing. When we found out, it broke my heart. That was when Hunter and The Kliq came out and ran through me and Cash. They hit us with every one of their finishers. We came to the back and I punched a brick wall. I started flipping out.
"Cash grabbed me and was like, 'it's okay, it'll be alright.' I was in tears, not because I was sad, but because I was so upset and hurt. A guy we had so much respect for, and we still do, we couldn't believe he would allow that to happen to us. On the flip side, it's not his company. He doesn't call the shots. Vince calls the shots."
Harwood later added: "X-Pac said thank you. Everyone else walked right past us. That really hurt us. I can't say anyone loses faith in Hunter. I'm not sure we lost faith in Hunter that day as much as we lost faith in that company."
