AEW’s Dax Harwood Explains What Is Missing From Today’s Wrestling


AEW star Dax Harwood would love to see more emotion in wrestling, an aspect that he believes has been lost in favor of big moves.

Harwood, one-half of FTR holds the IWGP, AAA and Ring of Honor World Tag Team Championships with his tag-partner Cash Wheeler.


During FTR’s conversation with Culture State, Harwood spoke about recent matches with The Briscoes as an example of emotion.

“There weren’t really any big moves. All it was, was selling… The big suplex to the floor which did hurt like hell, we sold, all of us, all of us sold for like two minutes … The thing that makes them remember is their feeling, you know? How they felt.

“That’s what’s missing in wrestling, is the emotion. My wife will watch when I’m on. She has no idea what a 450 feels like, or a Shooting Star Press, or even a Snapmare, you know? She doesn’t know what those feel like, but she knows what sadness feels like, and frustration, and happiness … So when you can make people feel that then you’ve got them, and that’s when it becomes a classic.”

FTR defeated the Briscoes at April’s ROH Supercard of Honor XV event to win the ROH World Tag Team Titles.
