The Revival reportedly wanted to request their release from WWE before their match on this past Monday’s episode of RAW, however WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon & WWE COO Triple H had been preoccupied throughout the day with preparing Braun Strowman’s RAW Segment. Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson ended up waiting until after their match was finished to discuss the subject, according to Dave Meltzer on a recent edition of The Wrestling Observer Radio Program.
Meltzer is also reporting that The Revival’s contracts don’t expire until April Of 2020. As of this writing, the team has not yet received their release. The Revival continues to work WWE Live Events, having competed in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match this past Friday night in San Antonio, Texas that has been praised by wrestlers and fans in attendance. Sasha Banks would then take to Twitter to congratulate the team on their entertaining match, inciting an interesting exchange which ended with Sasha posting a GIF that read, “take me with you.”
Meltzer also mentioned how Dash Wilder’s trademarking of #FTR on January 1st was no coincidence, which means that they have been thinking about leaving the company for awhile now. Wilder & Dawson claim that #FTR refers to “Forever The Revival,” but the hashtag was actually first used by The Young Bucks when they feuded with The Revival over Twitter in 2017. The Bucks said it stood for, “Fix The Revival” or even, “f–k The Revival” at times.
