During a WWE conference call interview, WrestleTalk had the chance to speak with reigning WWE Raw Tag Team Champion Scott Dawson, who had some very interesting comments about WrestleMania 35, tag team wrestling and a number of other topics.
Dawson also made a very interesting comment about legendary manager Jim Cornette. Having admitted that the Midnight Express (Bobby Eaton and Dennis Condrey) were his all-time favourite tag team and expressing his belief that all three should be in the WWE Hall Of Fame, Dawson was asked about whether he would like Cornette to manage The Revival in WWE:
“I would love Jim Cornette to manage us. That’s a man who, if you think about it, from 1983 to 2019 his name has been a professional wrestling headline. He could come back today, manage Dash and myself and make the people love him or hate him, whatever he wants to do. We would make so much money with him.
Is he interested in being our manager? I dunno, I would love to hash it out with him and see what he thinks. That would be a dream for me as a fan and as a professional. I would love to make some money with him.”
With The Revival looking to be heading into WrestleMania as the Raw Tag Team Champions, Dawson also had plenty to say about how the belts were used on last year’s WrestleMania, where Braun Strowman teamed with 10-year-old Nicholas to defeat The Bar for the straps:
“What were my thoughts on that? Probably the same as everyone else. I felt like it was slap in the face. That was one of those things where I had to swallow my pride a bit. That’s one of those things that adds to the chip on our shoulder when something like that happens.
It made us want to work harder, it made us want everyone to take notice of The Revival and say, ‘Man, these are the guys we need to go with.’ I took it as a hit to my pride at first but it made me want to work harder.”
