• “WWE realizes aww sh*t we f**ked up” – Wrestling Legend On Report Of WWE Wanting FTR Back

According to Fightful Select, WWE wants to bring AEW Tag Team FTR (fka The Revival) back to the company:

“WWE has expressed interest internally about possibly bringing back the team formerly known as The Revival.

In 2019, the two passed up what were then huge offers of $850,000 each, with Mark Carrano even mentioning that he could possibly get them to $1 million each before they left for All Elite Wrestling.

WWE is unable to approach FTR directly (right now).”

After this report came out, All Elite Wrestling informed Fightful that Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler of FTR have over a year remaining on their current contracts.

Dax appeared on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast and had the following to say about the report of WWE being interested in FTR:

“We didn’t need any damage control. I think both companies are in the business of getting talent and getting talented talent, not just any talent, and I think they’ve seen the wave we’ve made, especially in the last 8-10 months, more so in the last 4 months. So yeah, why wouldn’t they put feelers out? Why wouldn’t they ask about it?

Here’s the thing – we respect Tony so much. We would never, in a million years, while we’re under a contract with the company, would we ever go behind his back and talk contract status with anybody else. No other company.

We would never do that to him because we have too much respect for what he’s given us and what he’s allowed us to do.

Now on the flip side of that, we’re gonna go where professional wrestling takes us, and wherever the best opportunity is for us and wherever we can build on our legacy.

That’s the most important thing. Obviously, money is really, really cool. I’m allowed to take care of my wife and daughter.

But whenever we initially got the contract offer from WWE, I called my grandmother and I told her how much it was, and I told her, ‘I think I’m going to turn it down.’

And her exact words were ‘David, how much money do you need?’ I was like ‘oh my god, she’s right.’ My dad and my mom busted their a$$ to take care of me. If they can do it, I can do the same thing and I don’t have to do this. I do it because I love it.

So we’re going to go wherever the love of wrestling takes us.”

Legendary Manager Jim Cornette addressed this situation on his podcast and said the following:

“It may be WWE realizes now with the performances they’ve been putting on that, aww sh*t we f**ked up.

Or maybe it is more like, we still do not give a sh*t for tag team wrestling, but these guys are valuable to the other company so we will definitely make a play for them.”
