Wheeler: Dude, we didn’t doing the short arm with little children and just, I love it dude.

Owen Hart became a topic of conversation during the interview and Harwood said he’s hoping that both he and Cash are a part of the AEW Owen Hart Cup.

Harwood: Obviously we want to be in the puts us in there but if he doesn’t, I’m just as proud to work for AEW just because he’s doing something like this.
