Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler won their debut match on tonight’s (June 10) episode of Dynamite. The commentators described FTR as “the hottest free agents” in wrestling.
The former Revival started things off by driving to the ring from North Carolina.

Their match against the Butcher and The Blade didn’t have any flips, but there were lots of fists, a brainbuster, and the tag rope being used to maximum advantage.
There was also a “superplex followed by a flying elbow drop” spot, though Wheeler’s elbow drop looked more like a top rope splash.

FTR did execute the Goodnight Express, formerly known as the Shatter Machine, but it doesn’t look like that’s their AEW finisher. They instead chose to finish off their opponents with a spike piledriver.
Speaking of spiked piledrivers and brainbusters, Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson happened to be scouting the duo from the empty audience seats. Hmm...
After the match was over, the Young Bucks came out to formally introduce themselves to FTR, and then all hell broke loose between a bunch of teams in AEW, including the champs, Kenny Omega and Hangman Page.

What did you think of FTR’s debut match in AEW? Do you think the spike piledriver is an upgraded finisher compared to the former Shatter Machine?
