Long rumored and expected after their release from WWE, FTR are officially part of AEW after making their maiden appearance on Wednesday’s Dynamite.
Following the Young Bucks and Matt Hardy’s victory over Private Party and Joey Janela in the opening match, the Bucks were jumped by The Butcher & The Blade who were sitting at ringside and got in a skirmish with the Bucks during the match.
As they fought, a black pickup truck was shown pulilng up to Daily’s Place and Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler jumped out. They walked into the ring and instead of attacking the Bucks, they went after Butcher and Blade. After brawling, they hit a spike piledriver on Blade and the Shatter Machine on Butcher to clear them out before turning down a handshake from the Bucks and walking out.
AEW tweeted out FTR’s new t-shirt where it was revealed the letters stand for “F*ck The Rest.” Originally, it was expected they would go by The Revolt, but issues with another North Carolina tag team using the name nixed that.
The duo was released from WWE on April 10th.
