Dax Harwood spoke on his FTR podcast about Triple H and his role in FTR. Harwood believes that Triple H has respect for them, but that he had no plans to build a company around them. He had some other favorites of his own. “He’s someone who changed the trajectory of my career, Cash’s career, and he did it by being a boss first, being a mentor second, and I learned, you know, I’ve said it before, we were never Hunter guys and’ll hold to that until the day we retire.
I do believe that we were one of his favorites, skill wise, talent wise, I think we were, but we weren’t one of the guys I think he wanted to build the company around or the brand around. I think he understood what we offered.
I think he understood how, this is egotistical, but how good we were in the ring, the stories we get to tell, and I think he knew that we could be a piece to the puzzle, but I don’t think he wanted us to be the whole puzzle”.

Dax Harwood also revealed who Triple H's favorites are. Harwood recalled one detail after his surgery. Despite everything, Harwood thinks Triple H respects FTR. “He loved Gargano and he loved Ciampa.
He loves those guys. He loved Fergal and those were his guys. So when I say we weren’t his guys, it’s not that he wasn’t a fan of ours, or we weren’t any of his favorite in-ring guys, it’s just we weren’t the guys that I think he wanted to build the company around.
Like I said, we were out for a couple of weeks. Both of us got injured. I had surgery and Ciampa was just a little banged up. Hunter would call or text him and ask, ‘How are things going?’ I had surgery and I’m sitting at home and I’m trying to rush back because we got to come back to drop the belts to Gargano and Ciampa, and I heard nothing.
We weren’t Hunter guys. I don’t hold any ill feelings towards him because of that. We just weren’t. But I do think that he was a fan of our work. I know he was. He told us. I think that he was a fan of us as talents. It’s just not who he necessarily wanted to build the company around”.
