The Revival and their “no flips, just fists” attitude is a constant reminder that the old-school aspect of pro wrestling isn’t dead. Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson have competed with the best NXT had to offer and captured the NXT Tag Team Titles two times before being called up to the main roster.
Dash and Dawson’s terrible luck when it comes to injuries has been well documented. For some reason, they can’t catch a break. They’re now a presence on Raw and challenging whoever they can to make some noise for themselves but it just hasn’t been able to translate into that next level push they desperately need.
Their old-school approach to pro wrestling means they studied the greats. Arn and Tully, Ricky and Robert, and Bret and Jim are among people they have honored with many hours of tape watching and note-taking. When it comes to being able to cut a ring in half and draw heat like a classic team few do it better than The Revival.
Bret Hart recently sent his niece, Natalya, a picture of himself in a store holding a battle pack of The Revival. Apparently, Dash and Dawson are The Hitman’s new favorite action figures. This fact made Scott Dawson comment how his life is now complete. It is certainly an awesome compliment to receive, to say the least.
