Vince McMahon Thought FTR Vs. The Good Brothers Was The Worst Match He Had Ever Seen
Vince McMahon was not a fan of FTR vs. The Good Brothers
It’s no secret that Vince McMahon is not a big fan of tag team wrestling, nor is it a secret that he didn’t quite get FTR’s appeal when they were in WWE.
FTR - then known as The Revival - often wrestled The Good Brothers of Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson during their run. Although the two teams clashed many times, one outing at Royal Rumble 2018 apparently didn’t tick Vince McMahon’s boxes, with Dax Harwood revealing McMahon’s thoughts on the match on the FTR podcast:
"It was a running joke between us [FTR and Good Brothers], because we had worked together so much throughout the year, that they didn’t care who won, just whoever won before, the other team would win the next time. We would always play the game of flip-flopping. ‘It’s your turn to win today.’ Then, we had a match at Royal Rumble, maybe it was Raw, whatever. We come to the back and Vince (McMahon) is waiting for us, all four of us. We thought the match was good. it was like an eight-minute match. We came to the back and he said, ‘Welp, that was absolutely the worst wrestling match I’ve ever seen in my entire life.’ The worst wresting match he has ever seen. This man has been in the business for 50 years. This was the worst match he’s ever seen in his entire life. Since the 70s, owning the company since 83. You can ask Anderson or Gallows, he said it’s the worst he’s ever seen. I kind of took it as a badge of pride. You’ve been through the (Hulk) Hogan era, (Steve) Austin era, Bret (Hart) era, you’ve seen every match possible. Top to bottom. You’ve seen Sivi Afi, dude. Sivi Afi, and we had the absolute worst match of all time. That’s kind of an accomplishment. It was a lot of fun back then. I hope no one has reached that bar. I hope we’re still the worst match he’s ever seen. To be fair, I don’t think he knows we were employed there for eight years," said Dax.
