Dash Wilder throws the idea out there.
The current RAW Tag Team Champions The Revival are a mere three weeks away from walking into WrestleMania 35 as champions. The duo do not have a match set for the "Show Of Shows" but Dash Wilder threw the idea out there of having a 2-Out-Of-3 Falls match against Bobby Roode and Chad Gable. Wilder shared that idea during an interview with talkSPORT and added that the bout with Roode and Gable is something that all parties involved will attempt to lobby for.
“Personally this year – I don’t know it’s possible or within reach but we’re going to do everything in our power [to] make it – would be a match with Roode and Gable, two-out-of-three falls, for the tag team titles,” Wilder revealed. "I feel like those guys have so much to offer as a tag team and they’ve only scratched the surface – especially on TV – compared to what they can do. I know what each guy is capable of individually and what they’re capable of as a team because we’ve wrestled them on live events all across the world at this point. We’ve had 40-minute matches, two-out-of-three falls matches, straight-up matches and I can’t say enough [about] how much more they have to offer to this division and how great both guys are – as much as I love that we’ve beaten them. I’d love to have a two-out-of-three falls match with them because the four of us will go out there, work harder than anybody else is going to work and we’ll give fans something to remember. That’s something we’re going to pitch for until the day is over. I don’t know if it’s going to happen, what’s going to go on but up until WrestleMania goes off the air we’ll be pitching that."
In a recent interview, Dash Wilder briefly touched on The Revival reportedly requesting their release from WWE and during this interview with talkSPORT, he spoke about some of the changes to WWE's tag team division that he would like to see be made. Wilder talked about the lack of television time for tag teams as there would be weeks on end when the Tag Champions would not be featured and that is one aspect of the tag division that he and Scott Dawson want to bring change to.
“For us, we want a healthy, competitive tag team division where all the tag teams get matches on TV and not just every now and then. They’ll be weeks where the Tag Team Champions were off two out of three weeks in a row. It was Roode and Gable that were off two out of three weeks and it’s hard for anybody to get invested in anybody like that. It’s hard for anybody to care or for anybody to have a reason to and I can’t blame them. If I only saw a champion every few weeks, I wouldn’t really invest myself as a fan as well as I see someone like Roman, someone I see every week then that’s something I get behind because I see them every week. There’s a continuity there and there’s just always something going on." Wilder explained. "If I see somebody once and then I don’t see them again for a weeks I’m like, ‘Oh, I forgot about that.' We just want to see the tag team division featured, prominently. Because we know what it can bring to the show, we know what it has to offer. Look at the three-way matches that The Dudleyz, The Hardyz and Edge and Christian had. I don’t think they actually ever main evented a pay-per-view, but they were the matches that everybody walked away talking about. There was a time when tag team wrestling was one of the hottest things on the show,” Wilder recalled. “And then you look back even further: you had the Road Warriors, The Hart Foundation, The Rockers, Arn & Tully, Legion of Doom – so many tag teams that were so good, and they had time to go out there and have great matches, develop characters and they had time to do real storylines and have them unfold over time. Nothing felt rushed or forgotten about. Everything had its place and that’s what we want. We don’t care if we’re the last tag team champions or we never win the tag titles again after this. As long as the division itself is getting opportunities. We have a lot of teams right now on RAW that I feel are very capable and very good and just need that opportunity to show that. As long as that’s happening, as long as there’s fair treatment and equal opportunities with the other matches and performers, then we’re happy and that’s what we want.”
