Dax Harwood Discusses Tension With Tony Khan & The Young Bucks


On the most recent installment of his podcast, Dax Harwood opened up about his and Cash Wheeler’s hostilities with AEW President Tony Khan, as well as The Young Bucks. He delved into the origin of the hostility and also discussed FTR’s prospects in the professional wrestling industry after their AEW contract expires in April 2023.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:


On FTR’s AEW contract expiring in April: “The biggest decision of our career is in April. Whatever we do in April will probably be the last thing we ever do in wrestling, period. At least on a national level in the ring for sure. So, I’ve got to take a lot of things into consideration as far as what we’re going to do, where we’re going to go, and I have an idea with my heart what I want to do.”

On FTR’s strained relationship with Tony Khan and The Young Bucks: “It felt like we were the backdrop, I felt that the company was — we were promised that the tag division was going to be built around these two teams. I felt that we were being lied to and I think that my relationship with Tony got even more strained. I felt that the relationship with the Bucks completely deteriorated because of that.”

On when his disagreements with Tony Khan began: “I think at this point [following losing the AEW World Tag Team Championships to The Young Bucks at Full Gear] here is where the conflicts between myself and Tony started. I say that knowing that it was not Tony’s fault. I say that in knowing that AEW is his company. I felt that this match was the most important match of our careers, ever.”

Recalling FTR’s talks with Tony Khan began following WWE release: We called Mark Carrano. ‘Yes, we agree to your terms. Please give us our release and thank you.’ So, he gave us our release. The following day, whenever the contracts were cut and we got the paperwork from Mark Carrano that said we were officially released, is when we started talking contracts with Tony Khan.”
