Dax Harwood and Money Wheeler of FTR appeared on the “Wrestling Perspective” podcast this week to debate, amongst different issues, their match in opposition to each other within the Owen Hart match.
Dax Harwood talked in regards to the followers beginning to cheer them during the last month:
“The followers are beginning to take to us. It’s who you’re and never attempting to play a personality or attempt to play wrestler or attempt to be somebody you’re not. I feel they see that in us and I feel they imagine in us. That’s what it’s all about is being passionate and displaying that keenness. For us proper now, our ardour is being the most effective and profitable.”
“I feel the followers can gravitate in direction of that as a result of they need to do the identical whether or not it’s a job or in life or their household. They need to be the most effective they probably can. Generally our ardour comes out otherwise and so they might not see eye to eye with us, and that’s once they determine to boo us, however proper now, they imagine in us.”
“It’s very, very arduous to make followers imagine in one thing now. That’s what we’re right here for is to convey out emotion and I feel we try this with our matches,” Dax mentioned.
Money Wheeler added:
“I feel one large distinction in our mindset once we go into how we would like a match to go, is so many individuals are available with the mindset of, ‘Alright, these are the strikes that I do. How will we get there?’ We go in with the mindset of, ‘Okay, what do our opponents do and the way can we work these into the match to make that make sense so we are able to get the most effective reactions for that?’”
“So as a substitute of entering into with what strikes will we do and the way will we hit them? We go on with, what do our opponents do and the way can we make them imply probably the most? In order that’s, I feel, what makes us completely different,” Money mentioned.
Dax on how the thought for his match with Money within the Owen Hart match got here to be:
“That was our concept. Completely. We needed to combat for it, however that was fully our concept. We’ve at all times wished to have a match, however we didn’t need to simply have a match simply to have a match.”
“There needed to be a motive and that is the proper motive to do it. The Hart household means so much to each of us personally and professionally. So with the ability to present respect to Owen Hart and his entire household, what higher approach to do it than permitting the 2 largest Hart household followers on this planet compete?”
“How can we’ve a single match in opposition to one another, simply straight up backwards and forwards wrestling match in our imaginative and prescient? There was no approach to actually make it make sense anytime earlier than as a result of we don’t ever need to tease a breakup or do a breakup. I’ve little interest in that. I’ll retire earlier than we ever even entertain that concept. I’ll say that proper right here proper now. Print it. Tattoo it. I don’t care.”
“We’re by no means going to do a breakup angle. So once we heard in regards to the Owen, we had been like, ‘We gotta go to Tony with the thought of the singles match.’ He did prefer it, however he was like, ‘Okay, I gotta see if I could make it make sense.’ We simply stayed on him about it, ‘Hey, can we? Can we? Can we?’ Lastly, he was like, ‘Alright, I received a manner the place we are able to make all of it work. You’ll do it in Philly. It’s happening.’ So yeah, he favored the thought, and he lastly gave us the nod, and right here we’re.”
