Just a couple of months ago, all that anyone wanted to talk about was the Revival supposedly requesting their release from WWE.
Fast forward a few weeks and they’re the Raw tag team champions, and Tye DIllinger, TJP and Hideo Itami have all been released ahead of them. So, I guess they’re staying put.
One half of the team Dash Wilder has spoken The Mirror about the supposed release request, and apparently we got it all wrong.
“I won’t touch on it too much, but what I will say is that it was lost in translation. There were some things that got out there that I don’t think people knew the full story about. I don’t think it aggravated us, it kind of gave us… again, we like to be angry. We like to be mad at things and have something to fight for. So that gave us more fuel for the fire and we were like… ‘we’ll have fun with the internet over that, as they don’t know what’s what, so we’re not going to tell them otherwise.'”
Wilder also went into detail about the push the tag team division is slowly starting to get within WWE, and what his hopes are for the future.
“I feel like our work is just beginning now. We feel that winning the championship means nothing, it’s about what we do with them while we have them, and what we do to elevate their standing in the company. It’s about what we do with the rest of the division to elevate it, and make everybody reach their potential. We’ve felt for a very long time that the Raw tag team division has some amazing talent and some great characters, and they need the right platform and the right platform to show that. I think, with us as champions, we’re going to do everything possible to do that.”
“For instance – and this might not sound like that much of a deal – last night was our first time on the main card of a pay-per-view since our call up to the main roster in 2017; we’d only done Kickoff shows. It was the first time that the Raw tag team titles have been defended on the main card of a pay-per-view for almost a year. We wanted that – to say we were on the main card. That was a step for us. So we’re finding life at the top as more work than ever, if that answers your question in the longest way possible!”
The Revival do not currently have a match for WrestleMania 35, but there are still a few weeks left to start a feud heading into April 7.
