Dax Harwood doesn’t mince words.
The FTR tag-team member and AEW star demonstrated this character trait during the latest installment of his “FTR with Dax Harwood” podcast.
“The Top Man” spoke candidly as he shared his thoughts on how Kofi Kingston’s long-awaited WWE Championship reign with Brock Lesnar in WWE came to an abrupt end in 2019 on the FOX premiere episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
Below are some highlights of the podcast where Dax Harwood shares his candid thoughts on the matter
How Kofi Kingston was upset when he lost the WWE title to Brock Lesnar: “I was very, very upset. I remember texting Kofi. It was actually a group text with The New Day and me and Dan. [Cash Wheeler]. I apologized to him and said, ‘I’m so sorry this happened to you. We are very upset. I can’t believe it’s true.’ Not because of anything with Brock, but how much work we put in and how he worked to get to this point. Especially when we were working with him, with Randy, I saw him outside of Vince’s office or going into Vince’s office every week trying to make things better, trying to make his championship run better. He has worked hard to become a great champion.”
How Kingston worked really hard to make his WWE title reign great: “I think a lot of people, maybe they think, ‘Oh, man, his championship run didn’t work out anyway. It wasn’t for lack of trying. Because every week I saw him try his hardest to do something. Nothing. It broke all of our hearts, the whole locker room, it broke all of our hearts that that’s where the championship was taken. Nothing to do with Brock, but because Kofi worked so hard, and seeing someone work that hard for so long has been taken away from him. To take this opportunity away from us, what will they do to us?”
