FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) have been awarded with Wrestling Republic’s Men’s Division Tag Team of the Year Award for 2023.
The team of AEW stars Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood, most commonly known as FTR, have been on the very elite of tag team wrestling for a few years now.
Despite dropping the AEW World Tag Team Titles way earlier than everyone expected, FTR had a very solid year by starring numerous instant-classic bouts and fantastic moments that received great scores in the Wrestling Republic scale.
The Voting Committee’s Reasonings For The Choice
“A prime example of a union of minds and body is clear with Dax Hardwood and Cash Wheeler,” said Wrestling Republic Podcaster Soul. “Starting the year leading fans a stary, if they would stay with AEW, to beating The Gunns and becoming two time AEW tag champs. Leading to great matches with the likes of The Bucks at ALL IN, Better Than You Bay-Bay, Aussie Open and more. Even with the loss of their titles, they put on a true classic with Bullet Club Gold on Collision. As well as continuing to honor the late great Jay Briscoe at ROH: Final Battle.” Soul also concluded by stating that “they are continuing their legacy as the greatest tag team of all time.”
Wrestling Republic Owner Ben Allison also stated that “put simply, FTR are the best tag team on the planet today and nearly every tag team match they had in 2023 was a banger.”
What’s Next For FTR?
Ever since dropping the AEW World Tag Team Titles to ‘Absolute’ Ricky Starks & Big Bill, both Wheeler & Harwood made it clear that FTR plans to regain the titles and become the face of the AEW Tag Team division once again.
And if we take the high-level performance and strong soul they put into all their 2023 matches, fans can be sure that it won’t be too long before FTR regains the #1 Contender spots and walks away with the titles anytime in 2024.
