According to a report by Dave Meltzer, WWE could be about to change the gimmick of The Revival heading into WrestleMania season.
The contracts of the Top Guys set to come to an end in early 2020, and it remains to be seen whether or not they will be re-signing with the company. But it appears that a change could be coming to the former SmackDown Tag Team Champions, with WWE considering a gimmick change.
According to Meltzer, WWE is considering making them comedy characters, which is why Dash Wilder tripped during his entrance on SmackDown last week.
For the avoidance of doubt, Meltzer penned: “The booking plan on SmackDown is to turn The Revival into comedy characters. There are mixed feelings on this for obvious reasons and it still may get shot down, but the deal where Wilder tripped and fell during the ring entrance was supposed to be the start of it. The Revival only has a few months left on their contracts and haven’t agreed to a new deal after attempting to get a release months ago. The proposed idea is to do a spoof of the Fabulous Ones, which, funny enough, is actually the original Fargos heel gimmick in the late 50s.”
