The Revival have been rumored to be leaving WWE for quite some time now.
Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder reportedly requested for their WWE releases about a week ago. Both men are seemingly unhappy with their current position in the company. Dash recently filed a trademark for #FTR and also posted a goodbye emoji on Twitter after Sunday’s Royal Rumble.
On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez discussed The Revival’s current situation in WWE while addressing Dawson’s sudden pairing with AOP’s Rezar at Royal Rumble.
“Here’s the thing everyone, I don’t know what’s happening right now, okay? But I know that… I think something’s going on. Something storyline wise. Because alright, so last week they set up the The Revival vs Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins. The moment I saw it I thought, okay they’re doing some kind of story here where like Hawkins is going to beat The Revival and his losing streak is going to end and it will be at the hands of The Revival and everyone knows that The Revival wants out so they’re either going to be buried or they’re going to be buried in real life and storyline.”
“They’re going to be buried in storyline for some reason, but something is going on. So then at the Rumble one of them [didn’t wrestle] like that makes no sense why is one of them gone? And then there was the while thing with Ziggler like Ziggler’s out of here his contract is expired he’s doing his comedy show, he’s not going to be at the Rumble he’s talking about how he doesn’t want to be a producer at this stage in his life.”
“Like they build this up big like he’s done, of course [Ziggler] shows up in the Royal Rumble, so now I 100% believe that they are doing an angle with The Revival. I don’t know what it is, but I think we’re going to find out more tonight.”
“It’s a storyline, there’s some kind of weird storyline going on here.”
It would be interesting to see in which direction The Revival treads next, both in WWE and real life.
