FTR Asked To Face Each Other In AEW

FTR comment on their upcoming AEW match

While they usually team together inside the squared circle, Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler will go one-on-one on Wednesday's edition of AEW Dynamite from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

Speaking about the upcoming match on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, FTR revealed they wanted to face each other but had to find the right time to have the match.

"That was our idea, totally. We had to fight for it, but that was completely our idea," Wheeler said.

"We've always wanted to have a match, but we didn't just want to have a match just to have a match. There had to be a reason. This is the perfect reason to do it. The Hart Family means a lot to both of us, personally and professionally. So being able to show respect to Owen Hart and his whole family, what better way to do it than allowing the two biggest Hart Family fans in the world to compete," Harwood added.

Wheeler then noted that as soon as the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament was announced, they thought it would be the perfect opportunity to have the match and they constantly badgered Tony Khan until it was made official.

"So when we heard about the Owen, we were like, 'We've got to go to Tony with the idea of the singles match.' And he did like it, but he was like, 'Okay, I've got to see if I can make it make sense.' And we just stayed on him about it, 'Hey, can we? Can we? Can we?' Finally, he was like, 'Alright, I've got a way where we can make it all work. Yes, we can do it. I'll announce it and in Philly, it's going down.' So yeah, he liked the idea but we had to make sure, 'Please let us, this means a lot to us.' And he finally gave us the nod and here we are," Wheeler added.
