The world of WWE is constantly buzzing with activity, both in front of the cameras and behind the scenes. One of the most talked-about topics in recent months has been the controversy surrounding Vince McMahon and the various headline-grabbing incidents associated with his name. It’s possible that the company might even weave a subtle nod to these challenges into one of their on-screen storylines.
During their tenure in WWE, FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler, formerly known as The Revival) frequently faced off against The Good Brothers (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows) in several matches. This included a high-stakes pay-per-view showdown at WWE Royal Rumble 2018. Despite their best efforts, neither team could gain a definitive upper hand, resulting in a humorous back-and-forth of wins and losses between them. However, one particular match between the two teams was dubbed by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon as the “worst match ever.”
Speaking on his FTR podcast with Matt Koon, Dax recalled Vince’s reaction to a Revival vs. Good Brothers bout.
“It was a running joke between us [FTR and Good Brothers], because we had worked together so much throughout the year, that they didn’t care who won, just whoever won before, the other team would win the next time. We would always play the game of flip-flopping. ‘It’s your turn to win today.’ Then, we had a match at Royal Rumble, maybe it was Raw, whatever. We come to the back and Vince (McMahon) is waiting for us, all four of us. We thought the match was good. it was like an eight-minute match. We came to the back and he said, ‘Welp, that was absolutely the worst wrestling match I’ve ever seen in my entire life.’ The worst wresting match he has ever seen. This man has been in the business for 50 years. This was the worst match he’s ever seen in his entire life. Since the 70s, owning the company since 83. You can ask Anderson or Gallows, he said it’s the worst he’s ever seen. I kind of took it as a badge of pride. You’ve been through the (Hulk) Hogan era, (Steve) Austin era, Bret (Hart) era, you’ve seen every match possible. Top to bottom. You’ve seen Sivi Afi, dude. Sivi Afi, and we had the absolute worst match of all time. That’s kind of an accomplishment. It was a lot of fun back then. I hope no one has reached that bar. I hope we’re still the worst match he’s ever seen. To be fair, I don’t think he knows we were employed there for eight years
