Exclusive: WWE Stops Paying The Revival After Taking Them Off The Road

Things are dicey for one WWE team

When the WWE Elimination Chamber tag team match was set, The Revival were conspicuous by their absences. When Fightful reached out to people within WWE, we learned that not only were Revival not figured into the company's plans, but they were sent home. One in the company said "they'd be here if they could be."

It didn't end there. Multiple sources within WWE have heard that The Revival either weren't getting paid, or that it was "extremely scaled back" because they've already exceeded their downside guarantees. The same source that noted that the pay would have been scaled back mentioned that The Revival have asked for their releases a half-dozen times since early 2018.

Word among the locker room was that Dawson and Wilder were making efforts to gain an amicable exit from WWE and hoped to be released at the same time.

We should be clear that this situation was said to have unfolded before the turn of the month when the duo worked a series of live events in New York. They've not returned to TV since.

At least as of last year, Scott Dawson's contract was set to expire in early April, and Wilder's set to expire ten weeks later.
