FTR Comments on “The More Time Passes, The More Likely CMFTR vs. Elite Is”
DAZN held a recent interview with FTR’s Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood. One of the topics discussed included FTR’s thoughts on a potential Trios match between CMFTR and The Elite in AEW in the future.
Dax Harwood – “If the cards fall into place and the story the is right and the opportunity calls for it, hell yeah, we can do it.”
Cash Wheeler – “It’s hard to know with all the moving parts that are involved for anybody, but wrestling is all about making the most money for yourself and the company you work for. I think everybody here all agrees with that. The more time passes, the more likely it is we can get to there. You never really know, and I don’t want to say yes, but I hope so.”
