Dax Harwood talked about other people's comments about FTR in his FTR podcast. Many criticized them for most things, and that they are difficult to cooperate with. “Still happy today unless you’re listening to some of the internet wrestling community and read the reports, I’m the most unhappy man in the world.
You know what’s crazy is, I want to take just a second to talk about that. Like, I tweeted about it and said that, I get painted and I have for years man as being unhappy or difficult to work with or whatever because I stand up for myself and that’s weird, you know.
Like, I was talking to my friend CM Punk, you may have heard of him just the other day and, you know, it’s crazy and I’m speaking for myself and not him, but in this industry for so long, especially with only one place to go until just recently, in this industry with one place to go you’re always just supposed to fall in line.
You’re always supposed to do what you’re told with no questions asked. And if you don’t, if you fight back just a little bit and speak up and push back just a little bit, man, you get painted in a certain narrative."- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com
Dax Harwood talks about his career
Dax Harwood is a special person who has his own principles and ways of communication.
He did not allow many things. “The ways they use that paint is they go to the dirt sheets and they anonymously say, oh, he’s unhappy and he’s so difficult to work with. No, I just want the best for my career and for Cash’s career, too.
And, you know, I’ve always wondered why. Like, I’ve never gotten to any kind of, I’ve argued with Tony, I’ve argued with Bruce, I’ve argued before with Vince, Mark Carrano, I’ve argued with these guys but not to the point where, you know, it was like, your mom’s a bitch, you know what I mean? It was me arguing my point and why I think this might be better or this could work better.
So, you know, in this industry, it seems like if you try to be better or try to better yourself or try to better your position and you do it without being a backstabber and you did it face to face, man, you’re labeled as difficult to work or unhappy.
But if you are a backstabber and you go behind people’s back, maybe cut their throat to the promoter or the booker, then nothing ever gets said about you, it’s just weird, man. I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my entire life.
I’m not just talking about my 19 years in wrestling, I’m talking about my 38 years on this earth. I have said it a million times, I have a beautiful wife, beautiful daughter, lucky enough, blessed enough, fortunate enough to have the house that.
Not saying it’s any kind of multi-millionaire house, I’m just saying I have a roof over my head and I’m lucky to have food in my belly and I’m lucky that I’m able to provide for my family. And then on top of all of that, the fucking ice on the cake, I get to perform and do a job that I dreamed of when I was five years old and you can’t get any better than that. So, yeah, the happy thing, I wanted to get that out there”.
