FTR were the guests on this week's "The Sessions with Renee Paquette," where they discussed their match with the Briscoes and the rumors that WWE has interest in them.

Dax Harwood was asked what he thought of the FTR-Briscoes match at Supercard of Honor

"I told Cash after the match was over, 'That's our Bret-Austin'. I don't know if we'll ever have a better match than that one, and that's okay with me. I can hang my hat on that. I can hang my hat on that whole week, you know, them and The Bucks match. But specifically that match, I can hang my proverbial wrestling hat on that match and say, 'This is what I do for a living, this is my legacy, and this is why we were the best tag team in the world.'”

“No one thought of any move we wanted to do. It was all built on intensity and emotion and winning. That's it, because we wanted to be the best tag team in the world, and they wanted to be the best tag team. We thought we were the toughest bastards in the world and they thought they were the toughest,” Harwood said.

“So going into it, all we knew was emotion, intensity, and trying to win, because everyone can relate to that. That's how we built our match. Because in your workplace, you want to win every single day so you can keep your job. That's just what we built the match around, and it was fuc*ing beautiful. I didn't want to watch it for two or three days. Then finally I was like, 'You know what, I'm going to watch it on the elliptical.' I was in the gym and broke down in tears while I was watching it. That's how much I loved it."

Dax addressing the rumors of WWE being interested in signing FTR:

"I think we know about as much as everyone else does, but we left that place because they didn't put a focus on tag team wrestling, and we knew there was a ceiling to where we could go in the company. We wanted to do more. We wanted to be known as the greatest tag team of all time, we had to leave there to do that, and we knew that so that's why we were so insistent on them giving us our releases.”

“I sent him (Cash) a screenshot of all the different news outlets or whatever saying they want to re-sign us. That's flattering and it's cool. You know, we've got some more time.”

“But I told Tony (Khan), you know, because obviously he heard about it, that there's no way that we would ever talk contracts with anybody while we were working for him. We have way too much respect for him and our word means something.”

“Then I start thinking like, Okay, do they want us or do they want AEW to not have us? You know, it's cool for Cody to do what he's done. But you know, there's just so many unknowns there. Will we ever focus on tag team wrestling like we've been able to the last two years? Money is not everything for us. I do have a family, so I have to take care of them. But it's not all about the money. It's about what we leave behind for wrestling, too."
