As we earlier reported, Braun Strowman was facing some heat from wrestling fans for some comments that people felt were unfair to independent wrestlers. A week after he made those comments he seems to be rethinking his position.
Strowman basically implied that independent wrestlers who “couldn’t make the bills” were not welcome in the business. However, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Strowman now regrets what he said.
Meltzer is reporting that, after some of his friends in the WWE talked to him about his comments, Strowman realized why people were upset and he has since apologized.
While there’s no real evidence of this apology that Strowman was supposed to have given, he has since deleted his controversial comments.
Elsewhere, for all intents and purposes, it seems that The Revival is on their way out of WWE and happy about it. WWE, however, is not as happy with the “Top Guys” declining to re-sign.
The latest sign that the WWE isn’t happy at the thought of The Revival taking their talents elsewhere came when Scott Dawson posted a Youtube video from an NXT house show.
Dawson posted the match which was supposed to be from his own video collection and featured The Revival vs The Undisputed Era.
Shortly after Dawson posted the video and Tweeted the link to it, the WWE had it blocked due to copyright claims, a fact that Dawson apologized for.
While Dawson’s WWE contract will be over in just a few weeks, his tag team partner Dash Wilder will still be under WWE contract till June. Wilder’s contract was extended to make up for the time he missed due to injury.
For all intents and purposes, it looks like the two intend to continue as a tag team, maybe in AEW. Over the months, they have filed a series of trademarks for the catchphrases they’ve been known for.
