Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder are only frustrated because they care.
The Revival made headlines in January when they reportedly asked for their release from WWE. The request was reportedly made following the duo being frustrated with the creative direction of the tag team division. Things eventually calmed down and The Revival went on to win the Raw Tag Team Titles on the Feb. 11 episode of Raw.
"It gets frustrating whenever, for example, the last few months at our live events, we have a team that wants to try and outwork us and be the best tag team out there. That's Bobby Roode and Chad Gable. We're having these matches where we're going for 30-45 minutes and we're trying to tear the house down every single night and make the fans believe in tag team wrestling," said Dawson. "It gets frustrating that sometimes, you start to feel that hard work doesn't pay off but then, I gotta remind myself why I'm doing this. And it's to better professional wrestling."
The Revival and Chad Gable & Bobby Roode tore the house down at live events earlier in the year, doing 2-out-of-3-falls matches that were well-received by those backstage and the live audience.
Wilder jumped in, saying, "It's easy to get frustrated. Anybody who is passionate about something will know that feeling. If you're passionate and you care and you know what it can be and what you bring to the table...If you could just clock in and clock out, no stress. But when it consumes every hour of your day, it's different."
Dawson added, "It'd be way less frustrating if we didn't care and we just looked at it as a job."
Two people who have supported Dash & Dawson throughout the year have been the Women's Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Bayley. The Boss N Hug Connection have openly credited The Revival for helping them become a better team and publicly support them on social media.
"When we get frustrated and down because we don't think certain people are behind us to give us 'the nudge.' (Sasha Banks & Bayley) always stand up for us on social media and interviews by telling people 'these guys are really good.' They keep us relevant. And international TV doesn't," joked Dawson.
Earlier in the WWE Now interview, the four discussed working hard and always wanting to improve, no matter where they are positioned on the card. Host Cathy Kelley stated, "You can't get complacent." To which Dawson joked, "You can (get complacent). And you can get rewarded for it."
The Revival is set to defend their Raw Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania 35 against Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins. It's also being reported that newly designed Raw Tag Team Titles are on site at WrestleMania 35.
