Dax lost the match in the end due to Sharpshooter’s submission. Still, his fighting spirit and performance were appreciated by the fans. He took to Twitter and reacted to this gesture, something that he had never experienced.

“After my match with Adam Cole on Wednesday night, Long Island decided to give me a standing ovation. I’ve never felt anything like that in my career. Y’all made all this happen. Not some kind of “push”. Not a “turn”. It was y’all. The appreciation you’ve shown isn’t unnoticed.”

He acknowledged the fans who showed him immense respect and love and also said that it is something that happens organically.

Harwood posted another tweet to thank those who supported him despite losing the match against Cole.

“I’m just a 5’10 North Carolinian with a less than ideal body. Y’all shouldn’t like me, but I’m damn sure happy y’all do. I went to failure tonight; but I didn’t fail.”

Cole Advanced to the Owen Hart Foundation tournament semi-finals, and now it will be interesting to see whether FTR goes for the AEW Championship title.
