While it was speculated and teased in the past, it seems that The Revival are in fact headed to AEW. This week’s episode of Being The Elite closed with a shot of the letters FTR in the sky, signaling the arrival of the recently released WWE team.
The 200th episode of the show finished with the Young Bucks saying there was something they still had to do. This was heavily implying their possible rivalry and match with WWE’s Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson (now known as Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood). Now, the Bucks have confirmed it.
The team has been calling themselves The Revolt and FTR since their release from WWE. They have also had a long-running rivalry with Cody and the Young Bucks dating back to their time in NXT. The feud initially started over which team could claim they were the best in the world. This rivalry saw the Bucks and Cody come up with the FTR handle, originally meaning “F*** The Revival”, before Wheeler and Harwood changed the phrase to “Fear The Revival”.
Both teams had gone on Twitter to say that one day they would wrestle one another. That day now seems closer than ever before.
