FTR --Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood -- recently spoke with the Metro UK media outlet for an interview to promote the big "Blood & Guts" showdown between The Pinnacle and Inner Circle at this Wednesday night's edition of AEW Dynamite on TNT.

During the interview, the two members of The Pinnacle spoke about how important the pro wrestling business has been to them throughout their respective lives, as well as how they both intend to give back to the industry as much as possible when the time is right.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where both Wheeler and Harwood give their thoughts on this particular topic.

Cash Wheeler: "I feel like we owe wrestling so much. We had nothing growing up. I can tell you now that if it wasn’t for wrestling – I come from a family of addicts and I would have went that path. It was the easiest path and the one that I knew other than wrestling. If I didn’t have something to hold onto and grasp at to lead me in a different direction I would be… not good."

Dax Harwood: "Without wrestling, who knows? I wanna leave it better than I found it because I owe it everything. We left [WWE] together because of our legacy and we started in AEW because of our legacy, and that’s a very important thing to us. But our job is also to make sure that when we’re done and we hang it up, everybody that we worked with is better than we were before. This might get me a little heat, but Cash can tell ya I don’t give a damn about heat. We’re not gonna be the guys at 45, 50 years old and 50 plus who think that we need to go out there and still have 30-minute matches and beat everybody. That’s not us. We want to give back."
