Their contracts are due to expire this summer and AEW has a one year option that can be picked up. It was noted in the report that word should be coming soon on if AEW plans on picking up the option/contract extension.
FTR has been getting a bigger push on AEW TV as of late. Their match on AEW Dynamite with The Young Bucks received rave reviews and many are calling their match with The Briscoes a contender for Match of the Year.
However, while things seem to be going well for Harwood and Wheeler in AEW, they have not ruled out a return to WWE. Last month, Dax was asked if he would ever return to WWE. His response was, "Yes, If the money and circumstances were right..."
During their previous WWE run, they had excellent matches in NXT but once they were brought up to the main roster, they were used primarily as a comedy act.
