FTR AEW Contracts Status Update

As noted before, FTR made their surprise AEW return at this past Sunday’s Revolution 2023 event in San Francisco, California. Following the AEW World Tag Team Championship 4-Way match, which was won by The Gunns to retain their titles, the Gunns gave a post-match promo boasting about them being the best tag team in the world. Their promo was interrupted by FTR’s surprise return, who proceeded to beat up the Gunns.

PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that his sources stated that FTR are currently believed to have recently signed new long-term deals to stay in AEW for the foreseeable future. Johnson reported that FTR’s recent absence from AEW programming and teases of them leaving the company was done just for storyline reasons.

Prior to the signing, Dax Harwood had teased that FTR’s contracts with AEW would be expiring this April.
