The Revival were given their WWE release months after first requesting them. Now Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder are able to carry on as Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler respectively.
Cash Wheeler explained to Talk Is Jericho that things were decent for them in WWE, but they weren’t happy. The tag team titles didn’t mean what they should and it didn’t matter who the champions even were.
“Things were going decent for us, they’re going well all things considered, but we’re not happy. The tag titles don’t mean anything. I would rather lose to the tag champs for the rest of my career than hold them, because it’s just going to be seen as a failed championship run.”
Dax Harwood then elaborated on this point. He stated that one of the biggest factors for leaving was that tag team wrestling was a featured part of every other company’s programming except for WWE.
“That was one of our biggest factors in leaving, was that tag team wrestling was featured everywhere else except for WWE and we wanted to be a part of that. We could sit back and, apart from our NXT stuff, we could have no legacy in wrestling or we could go out and make history.”
We’ll have to see where Dax and Cash end up next. AEW seems to be a likely destination for them. Things could pick up sooner than we might think, especially since AEW is filming live television once again and they were granted an immediate release.
