During their appearance on The Push, FTR revealed that Dusty Rhodes was the driving force in getting them together.
Dax Harwood stated:
“Dusty wanted us to be a team. I think he enjoyed that we were both southern boys and he liked our accents, our style of work and that we also weren’t the biggest guys in the room. We’re 5’10 and surrounded by 6’5-6’6 guys and you’re often overlooked, but he told us never to leave each other’s side…be seen together all the time so that everyone can see what [Dusty] sees just on the surface.”
“No one is ever gonna be Dusty but he knew being able to converse and being conversational with your audience and with your peers is what makes you money because you’re on their level now.”
Cash Wheeler added:
“The craziest thing about learning from Dusty was that half the time you didn’t even realize you were learning until after he already taught you, like he would Mr. Miyagi you…he would get you in touch with who you are as a performer and not what other people’s perceptions of you should be or what your idea of yourself as a wrestler was. He would find out something about you that was different and he would find a way to transition that into wrestling so that you’re being more organic with yourself and more real."
