Konnan Reacts To Cash Wheeler Getting Arrested – Exclusive

This past Thursday, AEW World Tag Team Champion Cash Wheeler, real name Daniel Wheeler, turned himself into Orlando authorities after a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Wheeler is being charged with one count of aggravated assault with a firearm, allegedly stemming from a “road rage-style” incident on July 27. Wheeler was given a $2,500 bond, told not to speak with the alleged witnesses or victims, and instructed to turn over all his firearms to authorities.

In an exclusive Haus of Wrestling interview, I asked AAA booker and former WCW star Konnan what he thought about Wheeler, who is a former AAA World Tag Team Champion, and his arrest.

“It isn’t going to affect anything,” he said. “I’m going to tell you what was weird to me. So, I worked with FTR, okay? And I had some good conversations, especially with Dax. Cash is like really kind of a quiet guy. Dax is more like the outspoken guy. So, I had some really good conversations with them.

“I have to give them a lot of credit. They never called it in. They worked their f-cking ass off. You know? They take a lot of pride in having good matches, and they were down here with Vickie Guerrero, who did an incredible job. So, I’m gonna put that to the side. I loved working with them.”

Earlier today, on an AEW media call, Tony Khan confirmed that the planned match between FTR and The Young Bucks for the AEW World Tag Team Championships at AEW All In London is still moving forward is scheduled. However, he did note that he is still keeping a close eye on the situation as it continues to unfold.

“I felt bad for him when I saw him in that video when he was in court,” Konnan said of Wheeler’s arraignment hearing footage that was streamed online. “You know, he’s probably thinking, ‘F-ck, everybody’s seeing this. What the f-ck am I doing? I f-cked up.’ But sometimes, in those five seconds, where you let your emotion override your intelligence, that’s happened to all of us, including myself. But still, he’s lucky he wasn’t fired. He’s lucky the guy didn’t pull over, and he had a gun. I mean, that could have gotten way worse. You know what I’m saying?”

My full conversation with Konnan is now available on the Haus of Wrestling YouTube channel and podcast feed.
