After the unforgettable backstage altercation at AEW All Out last September, anticipation has been building among fans for a dream match-up: CM Punk teaming up with FTR against Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks, the prominent members of The Elite.
Recently, Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler of FTR shared their thoughts on the potential bout in an interview with DAZN Wrestling. Reflecting on the possibility, Harwood stated, "Should the stars align, the storyline feels right, and the opportunity presents itself in a way that's organic, then absolutely, why not?" He further emphasized the importance of authenticity in wrestling narratives.
With the AEW World Tag Team Champions scheduled to meet the Young Bucks at AEW All In this month, introducing CM Punk into this mix would certainly stir the pot.
Wheeler Discusses Match Uncertainties
Wheeler weighed in on the intricacies of the potential match-up, saying, "Given the numerous dynamics at play, it's a challenge to predict.
Wrestling at its core is about maximizing revenue both for the wrestlers and for the promotion. I believe we're all on the same page regarding that. As time unfolds, the possibility of this match materializing seems to grow, but in the ever-evolving world of pro wrestling, there are no certainties.
While I can't confirm anything, I am genuinely hopeful." Insiders have provided only sporadic information about the backstage incident, likely constrained by non-disclosure agreements. From the whispers among the wrestling community, it appears the crux of the disagreement primarily involves the Young Bucks and Punk.
Interestingly, there have been reports suggesting Omega and Punk shared a rather civil exchange after the dust settled. This might be hinting at a potential one-on-one clash between the two. As of now, fans and industry insiders alike are left in suspense.
Will these six men be able to set aside any backstage animosity and create a moment in the squared circle that could be remembered for years to come? Only time will tell.
