The Revival mince no words about how they feel.
The current RAW Tag Team Champions The Revival have not held back about their feelings regarding how WWE views tag team wrestling and how they as a team, want to bring that form of wrestling back to prominence in WWE. The Revival reportedly reportedly their releases this past January and Dash Wilder commented on those reports and said that the reports were lost in translation.
The Revival are set to defend their RAW Tag Team Titles today at WrestleMania against Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins and recently, both Dash and Dawson spoke with FOX Sports Australia and talked about the current state of tag team wrestling in WWE. Dash Wilder described it as "Atlantis" and Scott Dawson followed up by adding that he partially blames WWE for that and went on to explain why he puts part of that blame on the sprorts-entertainment company.
Dash Wilder: "It's not a 'bit' of a lost art. It's become Atlantis."
Scott Dawson: "This is going to sound terrible, but I kind of blame our company for that. Because the individual stars made so much money, so people had that goal in mind to be an individual star here, and for us we knew that to make the most money, we needed to be a tag team, we needed to be a unit. Collectively we're individuals but mentally we're one. That's how we had to think to make the most money that we could. In the 80s obviously tag team wrestling was huge, then it kind of died off a little bit, then you had Edge and Christian and the Hardys and the Dudleys, even Too Cool and the APA bringing back tag team wrestling, and then it just got lost. I don't know if it's because the whole culture of the world is becoming more selfish or what. I'm very proud of what we've accomplished and what we're doing, and that we've never had an argument or had selfish ambitions."
