FTR’s Dax Harwood, one-half of the dominant tag team, recently took to social media to discuss what’s next for the team after a jaw-dropping loss on AEW Collision.
On October 7th, 2023, FTR was defeated by Ricky Starks and Big Bill, losing their AEW World Tag Team Championships in a brief 4-minute match that left fans in disbelief.
Having held the championship belts for a commendable 185 days, The Top Guy pair had fended off every challenge. Nevertheless, their recent grueling match against Aussie Open at WrestleDream had taken a toll, making them vulnerable to their newest challengers.
The match began with a swift attack on Wheeler, culminating in a scene where he was slammed through the commentator’s table. This left Harwood in a challenging position, defending the titles solo. Despite his brave efforts, the onslaught by Starks and Bill was too much. Multiple choke slams wore Harwood down until a final spear from Starks sealed their fate.
So, What Did Dax Harwood Share on Social Media Following Their Unexpected Loss of the AEW World Tag Team Championship? After the match, Harwood took a moment to reminisce on their journey by posting a series of snapshots from FTR’s time in All Elite Wrestling. Accompanying the photos was a caption that read:
What a run. Love you all. Top Guys Out.
This cryptic message left fans speculating if this was FTR’s way of announcing their departure from Tony Khan’s AEW. Addressing the fan theories, Harwood quickly clarified:
Guys, I say ‘Top Guys Out’ all the time. We ain’t going nowhere. This is our home.
It’s worth noting that Harwood and Wheeler remain committed to AEW. They had recently re-signed with the promotion, ensuring they’ll be showcasing their talents there for years to come.
