Dax Harwood Tells Story About Sting Leaving Him A Voicemail Following Match


During the post-ROH Death Before Dishonor media scrum on Saturday night, FTR’s Dax Harwood told a story about a nice voicemail Sting left him thanking FTR for a match they had with him and Darby Allin at AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam back in 2021. He said,

“So we had the match at Arthur Ashe, and I was on vacation with my family. I got a call from Sting, but I was out on the beach. I came back up, saw my phone, and listened to a three-minute voice mail from Sting. I still have it saved on my phone. He said, ‘hey, I can’t thank you enough. You guys went out of your way to make sure that I looked as good as possible.’ He said, ‘I was afraid that I would embarrass myself. Then I got on Twitter and read the results and the reviews, and found out people still love me.’ In my mind, I’m like, ‘you’re Sting, of course, we still love you!’ But he had that doubt, and those are the things that [I care for]. Greatest tag team of all time, whatever. But my hero, from when I was a kid, has a voicemail to me. He took time out of his day to call me and say, ‘hey, you’re the best, you guys are the best I’ve ever been in the ring with. Thank you so much for that. That made my career.’ Those are the things I care about.


“If I’m being honest, I don’t think I’ve ever sat down and thought about it. Are we the greatest of all time? Are we Mt. Rushmore material? The things I think about is when Bret Hart, Dennis Condrey or Arn Anderson text me, these people that I’ve looked up to, loved, and admired, and they tell me how great we are and what we did was greater [than past tag teams]. Those are things that I’ll forever remember. Like at Arthur Ashe last year, we had this match with Sting, and I went to him the week before in catering. I said, ‘hey, I know that at 62 years old, you probably have some doubt in your mind, and that’s OK. We all do, we’re all insecure. I said, ‘but, if there’s ever a night you wanted to go 30 minutes, next week is your night, because I promise you we can make sure [of it.]. I told him, ‘we know Sting better than you know Sting.’”
