During a recent edition of his “Wrestling With Freddie” podcast, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. lavished praise on the tag team match between FTR and Brian Cage & Big Bill on an episode of AEW Collision earlier this month.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On FTR vs. Big Bill & Brian Cage: “I don’t think I’ve ever given them, I don’t know if we’ve given them any love on this show, outside of like, ‘We respect them.’ These dudes [FTR] wrestled Brian Cage and Big Bill and they made — Cage and Bill are responsible for this too — but they made them look like a team I want to watch wrestle for the next ten years. All four men did a great job in this match. Big Bill and Brian Cage have something that I don’t think … I think they know they have something, and they got to figure out what that is. They looked awesome as a team.”
On his thoughts on the match: “He starts against Brian Cage, Brian Cage is just mauling him like a bear, smashing him down — here’s a shoulder block, here’s a clothesline, ‘You ain’t sh*t.’ And Wheeler’s like, ‘Yo, I ain’t sh*t. I gotta tag out.’ And then Dax Harwood comes in, he’s like, ‘Don’t worry, bro, I got you.’ And Brian Cage is like, ‘You ain’t got sh*t.’ Shoulder block, clothesline, pick you up, and then Dax Harwood is like, ‘This guy is crazy strong.’”
