Major Update On If FTR Vs. The Young Bucks Will Go Forward

This past Thursday night, one-half of FTR, and AEW World Tag Team Champion Cash Wheeler, real name Daniel Wheeler, turned himself into Orlando police after an arrest warrant was issued for him. The warrant was issued on July 28 and was in regard to one count of aggregated assault with a firearm; he has pled not guilty to the charge. According to the alleged victim, Wheeler pulled up next to his vehicle after swerving in traffic and pointed a black semiautomatic handgun at him while staring intently. The alleged victim claims they were scared for their life.

Wheeler was given a $2,500 bond and told not to contact the alleged victims or witnesses and to hand over all his firearms to authorities. One restriction the judge did not pass down on Wheeler was that he surrender his passport, leaving the door open for him to still travel to London for AEW All In. Shortly after the news broke, Haus of Wrestling reported that while many within the company, both talent, and management, were caught off guard by the news, it did not appear FTR vs The Young Bucks was going to be pulled from the historic card. We were pointed to his passport not being taken and a tweet MJF issued stating the match would still be happening.

Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso reports that the match does look to be proceeding as planned for Wembley Stadium this weekend. It should be noted that the confirmation was couched with the words “as of now” since this is still a fluid situation, and things can change. This is something we also noted in our original reporting this past Friday afternoon.

This new report also echoes more of what we reported on Friday by stating that it is still unclear whether Wheeler let AEW President and General Manager Tony Khan know about the charge before news broke last week. Khan is scheduled to do a media call this afternoon and may address what he knew and when. I will be on the call representing Haus of Wrestling and will be live tweeting any relevant news from our Twitter account.
