AEW will celebrate Tag Team Appreciation Night tonight on Dynamite, but tag team aficionados Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler, collectively known as FTR, will not be able to compete.
Harwood, formerly known as Scott Dawson in WWE, revealed to the Battleground podcast that he tweaked his knee during a recent 12-man tag match and was unable to finish after being helped to the back.
“I played high school football and someone chop blocked me and I tore my ACL, that was in 2002. My right knee has always given me some problems. I had a clean out of my knee and the doctor who did my surgery in 2004, left an actual pants button in my knee. That button had been there for a decade and chipping away at my cartilage. I have this terrible knee and it’s gotten way better. I wear the brace on my knee for mental (reasons).”
“Cash came off the rope with an elbow drop, I just tweaked my knee a little and I haven’t gotten an MRI yet, I’m just doing some rehab and icing it and taking precautionary measures. The only bad thing is, we have looked so forward to Tag Team Appreciation Night on August 12 and we were looking forward to having a match and we’re not going to be able to do that because of the injury.”
