Revival Have Very Unusual Deal With AEW
When FTR showed up on AEW programming a couple of weeks ago, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that the duo had officially signed with the promotion and would be joining an ever-growing stable of excellent tag teams.
Not so fast…
Apparently, Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler haven’t signed on the dotted line nor committed anything beyond that of a handshake deal with AEW. While answering questions during a live stream on Harwood’s Instagram account, they revealed they haven’t signed a contract to wrestle yet.
All signs indicate that the duo will sign a deal and are already being booked for their first match on AEW programming as they are scheduled to meet The Butcher and The Blade. There’s no reason AEW would book them to go over if the intention was not to keep them around.
They’ve also picked a fight with The Young Bucks in a match that most tag team fans have been anxious to see.
There Could Be a Reason Both Sides Are Holding Off
FTR mentioned they have the right and some desire to do some work on the independent scene and for AEW, as financial uncertainty continues to be of serious consideration, perhaps waiting to sign these two to a big-money deal is the right way to go about this.
No sense in locking yourself in just yet if everyone is cool working together once things are a bit more solid.
