Dawson & Wilder first reportedly asked for their release in January 2019. WWE offered the duo multi-year deals at around $550,000 each, which were passed on last year.

On Jan. 10, Fightful Select reported Dash and Dawson were approached with another deal that exceeded the previous number and there were also offers of reduced dates.

One WWE source said that Dawson and Dash had not outright rejected the deals, but haven't been quick to accept them, either. The situation surrounding the two has very much remained the same, with them wanting a well-booked tag team division. The source stated that WWE is "throwing everything at the Revival, and they're just saying 'we'll let you know.'"

Their contracts expire in the spring of this year. The duo recently filed trademarks on "Shatter Machine" and "#FTRKO." They already had the trademark on "#FTR"

On Thursday, Scott Dawson posted the following tweet.

The Revival is set to compete on Friday's SmackDown in a number one contender's fatal four-way tag team match against Heavy Machinery, Lucha House Party, and John Morrison & The Miz.

Fightful will have live coverage of WWE SmackDown beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
