Dax Harwood is on one hell of a run in 2022. He achieved a five-star rating for his tag team match with the Briscoes at ROH’s Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view event. His recent Dog Collar match, a rematch against Dem Boyz for the ROH Tag Team Titles, is also receiving critical acclaim. So what’s next for him?
According to Matt Koon, the co-host of the former Gentleman Villain podcast, Dax will soon be getting his own show. The podcast, which is scheduled to launch on December 29th, is titled “FTR with Dax Harwood.” A new Twitter account for the show has already been created:

In addition to the podcast news, Harwood also provided an update on his health after that brutal Dog Collar match. He said,
“Well the match, the outcome… I talked to Cash about this and I always wondered why Bret Hart said the match with Steve Austin at WrestleMania 13 was his greatest match ever. I love the match, I think it’s incredible. But I always thought, and he’s had matches that were technically better than that one, but as soon as that bell rung when we were finished, I knew right then why he thought that was his greatest match ever. That’s how I feel about the Dog Collar match. I think the Dog Collar match, and I’m not a gimmick wrestler, I’m not a Blood & Guts kind of wrestler. I’m a lock up, gritty wrestler that tries to use wrestling holds or wrestling moves to tell the stories. But after that bell rung, after that last bell, I knew that was the greatest masterpiece I’ve ever structured and put together. It was a very emotional time for me, walking to the back with those guys. It’s very cliché for me to say, but it was indescribable. Physically, I feel like sh*t. I was telling you before we started recording that I still have a huge bruise on my ass, my lower back is in shambles. That’s the thing that I don’t understand about some of the wrestling today, is that they take these bumps and they get these bruises in these matches and then they get right back up. We’re kinda telling people that once you’ve fought for the last thirty, forty, twenty, however old you are years, it’s true that it’s fake, but it’s not fake when I’m flying home in discomfort. It’s not fake when I do get home and I can’t play with my eight year-old daughter because I feel so physically bad. That’s one of the things that I wanted to express here is that wrestling is an art form and in my opinion, it’s the most beautiful art form, but man, it does take a toll on your body.”
