FTR has to be on cloud nine this Easter weekend as they’re going to be managed by Bret Hart soon. It was announced by Big Time Wrestling that Hitman will be in the corner of the ROH & AAA Tag Team Champions come June 10 when the promotion puts on an event in Webster, MA. They’ll be facing a squad full of legacy as Arn Anderson will manage Brock Anderson and Brian Pillman Jr. in the opposite corner.
“FTR will FINALLY get their chance to be managed by Bret Hart when they take on the team of Brian Pillman Jr & Brock Anderson with Arn Anderson!” Tweeted out the Big Time Wrestling social media.

Cash Wheeler noted how big of a moment this is for the two, especially his partner Dax.
Oh yeah, this is real. Talk about a year.
Someone go check on Dax. https://t.co/JcYHHUYS8y

Before the news broke, FTR spoke to the Two Man Power Trip podcast about how it is definitely a bucket list item to have Bret display some sort of mentorship at ringside.
“He’s that guy that just touched lives. So for us to be able to say that there has been so many Legends that we’ve lost in the past couple of years that I would have loved to have gotten the chance to work with like we never got to work with Bobby Eaton, stuff like that, I don’t want to miss out on those anymore,” FTR said. “So there’s a chance that even if it’s just for one night or it’s just backstage where he’s talking to us, giving advice, that’s cool with me. I don’t know. Whatever could be possible. I’m not going to add any fuel to that fire. But even if it’s just a one-night thing, where he’s backstage, hanging out, just giving advice to people, that would be cool just to get to work with Bret and let him know how much he’s influenced us, even though he already knows because we talked about it nonstop.”
