FTR weren’t a fan of being called at the last minute.
Dax Harwood addressed refusing to do an angle with Randy Orton in a recent episode of the “FTR with Harwood” podcast. Harwood and Cash Wheeler just came in from the global tour just in time to receive a call from the management. WWE travel services needed them to beat down Orton on RAW for a storyline.
“We were called by the WWE travel services to tell us that we were needed for ‘Raw’ and we lost it. We said, ‘absolutely not.’ They said, ‘Well, right now, the creative [plans are] you guys are coming in and are going to attack Randy, and then ‘NXT’ is going to come in and jump you guys and beat you down.’ We said, ‘No, absolutely not. We’re not coming in to do that.’”Dax Harwood on FTR
With their five Tag Team Championship reigns, FTR was one of WWE’s most impressive teams. The pair established themselves by doing it all on “WWE Raw,” “WWE NXT,” and “WWE SmackDown.” They got the last of these from The New Day at Clash in 2019 with Randy Orton.
