Last night on RAW, The Revival took on the B-Team and the Deleters of Worlds in a tag team triple threat match for the RAW Tag Team Championship.

As a tribute to Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart following his death earlier in the day, The Revival used the signature Hart Foundation’s Hart Attack finisher on Matt Hardy during the match.

This caused WWE Hall of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley (also known as Bully Ray) to feel disgusted. Dudley is of the mindset that the move should have been used as a tribute to finish the match. This did not happen, as the match continued after the move was used.

Dudley tweeted the following:


Dash Wilder of The Revival saw the tweet, responding to it through Twitter:

This also led the other half of The Revival in Scott Dawson to respond to Wilder:

It is worth noting that The Revival have used the Hart Attack before.

The reaction on Twitter to Dudley’s comments was mixed. Some felt that using the finishing move was a simple way to pay respect to Neidhart and the artform without changing the result of the match, while others felt on such a night it should have ended the match to better highlight the moment.
