Final Thoughts…

It is hard to overstate how talented Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler are. My favorite wrestling match I’ve ever seen in person was The Rock vs. Mankind for the WWF Championship at a house show when I was 10 years old. But my SECOND favorite is a 2016 match between The Revival and American Alpha at an NXT show in Seattle. I could’ve watched them wrestle forever. Never before had I been so sucked into the story and psychology of a tag-team match–it was a masterpiece. FTR was never allowed to reach their full potential with WWE and I am excited to see what heights they can reach in a place like AEW.

I’m also excited to see Marq Quen in action. Every time Private Party is on screen lately, I say to myself “Oh yeah! What happened to those guys?” Their win over the Young Bucks during the inaugural Tag Team Championship tournament was a defining moment of the early episodes of dynamite–an indication that we were in for a wild ride, that anything could happen and expected results could never be taken for granted. They were off to a really hot start, and then just kind of disappeared. A lot of the perceived absence has to do with the pandemic and a generally deemphasized Tag Team division, but I am genuinely stoked to see (at least one of them) back in action!
