Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler collide in an Owen Hart Foundation Tournament qualifier. Last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite brought the usual array of upcoming match announcements before its main event, with a surprising Owen Hart Foundation Tournament qualifier the pick of the bunch this time around.
FTR tag team partners Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler will face each other for a spot in the tournament proper. It goes down on next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, with the winner set to join Kyle O’Reilly and Samoa Joe, who has already advanced into the competition. It will be Wheeler’s first singles match since signing with AEW in May 2020. On the other hand, Dax has contested high-profile bouts against Jungle Boy, Chris Jericho, PAC, and CM Punk on top of his FTR tag team duties. The duo has never gone one-on-one, giving this contest extra appeal.
FTR is currently in the form of their lives. Reigning as the ROH and AAA World Tag Team Champions, their singles match comes on the back of red-hot, acclaimed tag bouts with The Briscoes and Young Bucks on successive weeks. Expect a contest befitting the Hart family name and legacy.
