In another comedy segment, The Usos revealed they put Ucey Hot in the gear of FTR.

Speaking on his FTR podcast with Matt Koon, Dax reflected on the segment.

"We thought it was funny. I knew, going in, I was going to make the absolute most I could out of it. I wanted to oversell it and I wanted to show him [Vince McMahon], ‘we’re more than what you think.’ Even if you’re going to try and embarrass us until we leave, we’re going to have fun doing it. As soon as we got to the back, the last thing we did on stage, I did this forward roll and I barrel rolled all the way through the curtain and to the back. When I got to the back and stood up, we got a standing ovation from everybody, Vince included. Paul Heyman, who I don’t trust any more than I trust my fucking doll to read the Bible, he came up to us and gave us this hug and said, ‘You always thought you were going to get over by being a great wrestler, huh? You thought you were going to be over by being a great wrestler. Now, you’re over with the man,’ and he pointed it to Vince. ‘Oh God dude, fuck off.’ To be fair, that’s a lot of the office. Whenever you’re high on Vince’s list, everybody is your best friend and they love you and they think you’re the greatest thing in the world. When Vince doesn’t care about you, that’s when they forget about you and don’t have time for you. Woof," said Dax.

Despite being embarrassed by the Usos on multiple occasions, FTR won the subsequent match against the Usos on the May 20, 2019 episode of WWE Raw. They did lose the rematch at WWE Super ShowDown.

Elsewhere during the podcast, Dax recalled WWE's idea to have FTR spoof 80's tag teams near the end of their WWE run. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
