Former WWE Tag Team Caused Rift Between Triple H & Top Star WWE

An AEW star has revealed that support from a top WWE star led to the dissolving of a popular television trio.

In 2019, Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson, collectively known as The Revival, began teaming with Randy Orton.

On the recent episode of FTR With Dax, the former Scott Dawson revealed why the split happened and the divide it caused between two of WWE’s top stars.

Harwood explained that Orton’s interest in the pair came from the way they called matches in the ring, which wasn’t something that seemingly happened often at the time.

After this, Harwood says:

“That’s the day he said, ‘There’s something here. This is something that I want to do’.”

Orton’s commitment to the project would, ultimately, be the thing that brought it to an end, with Harwood reflecting:

“Every week, he fought. And, again, like I said, Vince wasn’t there, whether he was sick or whatever.

“Whatever it was, he wasn’t there, and Randy was going to the office and he was talking to Hunter every single week to make sure this was something; to make sure we kept this up.

“Until it was that they completely took him away from us.”

Harwood would state that:

“The fans were buying into it and it wasn’t their idea.”

The first-ever WWE Tag Team Triple Crown winner would go on to say:

“I remember him and Hunter actually getting into a little — I don’t want to say spat or an argument — but Hunter was trying to get Vince’s vision to Randy and just let it be because that would be the easy way out; Vince is going to fight for who he wants.

“And Randy finally called Vince and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ And Vince said, ‘Okay, if you feel so strongly about it, let’s do it.'”

Despite Vince McMahon being willing to give it a go, it would be a shortlived arrangement, running from August 2019 to the WWE draft in October 2019 where Orton would be sent to Raw whilst The Revival would end up on SmackDown.

The Revival would leave WWE in April 2020, joining AEW in May of the same year.
