FTR's Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler comment on their relationship with Tully Blanchard in AEW
Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler commented on their relationship with Tully Blanchard. Dax revealed that it was their idea to team up with Tully in the first place.
Dax Harwood: "130% our idea. Obviously, Tully and Arn are big influences on both of us. But aside from influences, they are heroes of ours too. It was a natural fit having Tully with us. He is one of the greatest if not the greatest tag team wrestler of all time. Myself and Cash are considered by many fans, and we are absolutely pleased to be considered, one of if not the greatest tag team of the generation. And how much can we be even more elevated than to be allied with Tully Blanchard? A 130% our idea, and Tony loved it, and that's how we came about it."
Cash Wheeler went on to talk about how the alliance formed naturally when everyone saw them standing together backstage in AEW.
Cash Wheeler: "Exactly, I think everybody just, you see it, you see us, you see Arn and you see Tully. And Tully especially has been out of wrestling for so long, he has so much knowledge that has not been passed around and has not been passed down. I think everybody just knew as soon as it was said, as soon as you saw us standing together backstage, the lightbulb went off for everyone. Dax and I had talked about it for years prior to that, how cool it would be. So once everyone saw it in person, the lightbulb went off for everyone."
