Kevin Ku Says Violence Is Forever And FTR Was Suppose To Happen; FTR Asked Tony Khan

One half of the tag team Violence Is Forever Kevin Ku alongside Dominic Garrini are arguably one of the best tag teams in indie wrestling today.

The team has traveled across the world and competed and won titles in various promotions including BLP, SUP, DPW, ACTION, and more.

At Beyond Wrestling Heavy Lies The Crown 2022, VIF called out FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler), challenging them to a bout to decide who the best tag team.

While speaking with Jeremy Lambert & Stephen Jensen on The Spotlight, Ku reflected on the callout.

“They gave us an open mic and told us to say whatever I wanted and said if I wanted to talk about FTR, I could. So I said, ‘Okay.’ I don’t know how many people know this, but that match was supposed to happen a couple of times last year, end of 2021 into 2022. Obviously, they’re pretty busy, so it never worked out with their scheduled. So, we’re waiting,”

he said

Ku continued,

“I keep a list of my phone of wrestling accomplishments, wrestling goals, and who I want to wrestle and who we want to wrestle as a tag team. They are right up there and they have been for a very long time since we realized they were taking independent bookings. There are a couple of companies where it was supposed to happen, I won’t say who they are since it didn’t happen there, so I don’t want to put them on blast. It was supposed to happen at different companies, it just never worked out with their schedule. When we did extra work (at AEW) in Nashville, we actually talked to both of them and they were like, ‘Yes, we want this happen, we’re going to go speak to Tony Khan right now about taking more independent bookings.’ That was right before they started winning all the tag team titles. Obviously, it was hard to take a random independent date with a tag team that Tony Khan knows nothing about.”

Violence Is Forever worked the 2/16/22 AEW Dark: Elevation tapings.

When it was noted that Tony Khan knows of VIF due to them being booked he stated,

“I assume nothing. I’m good friends with people he’s known and tape traded with back in the day. I’m sure that he watched a lot of wrestling, but I don’t know how much he knows of us as actual wrestlers. I’m sure he’s heard of us, but I don’t know how much he actually knows of us. I fully believe that if he knew who we actually were, we would be there right now. That’s not me trying to blow smoke up my own ass, I’m very confident that we are two of the best wrestlers, period, in the world right now. Look at our last year or two years. You can’t touch that. We’ve been everywhere, we’ve done everything, and we haven’t stopped. We never have an off-day. None of our matches are off days. We always go as hard as we can, doesn’t matter if there are five fans or 6,000 fans. We will do everything we can.”

FTR is the current reigning AEW Tag Team Champions. Violence is Forever are the reigning DPW and SUP Tag Team Champions.

It it unknown if and when the two teams will square off.
