FTR's Dax Harwood expressed his straightforward thoughts about WWE legends Booker T, Jim Cornette, and several veteran personalities who often share their opinions about the current state of pro wrestling.

Over the past few months, wrestling oldheads, most of whom are podcasters, have been criticized by the current generation of wrestlers. Most recently, AEW star Kenny Omega took a sarcastic jab at Jim Cornette, saying the veteran is simply playing a character. Cornette went off on Omega on his podcast, slamming him for "ruining" the business.

During the ROH Death Before Dishonor media scrum, NBC Sports Boston's Steve Fall asked FTR if they consider themselves one of the best tag teams in wrestling. Harwood recalled his interactions with Bret Hart, Dennis Condrey, Arn Anderson, and Sting.

Harwood paid tribute to the legends before him and had no problem if Cornette, Booker T, Hart, and others criticized FTR. Dax said he would use their words to better himself:

"If [Jim] Cornette wants to s*it on me, that's okay, you know. I'm okay with that because he's earned that right. If Bret Hart or Booker T or whoever says, 'I'm not a fan of those guys because they did this,' that's okay because they earned that right and I'll listen to 'em and I'll say, 'well, maybe I can.' Maybe I can take that and say, 'okay, maybe I can better myself.'" (from 1:25:09 to 1:25:31)

The former WWE star also mentioned that he would never be angry at legends not liking certain stuff because he knows they paved the road and earned the right to criticize:

"But I'll never get mad at them for not liking somethin' because they earned that right. Because they were away from their family a lot longer than I'm away from my family now, you know, and they paved that road." (from 1:25:32 - 1:25:42)
