Dash Wilder of The Revival has seemingly calmed the talk that he and fellow Revival tag team partner Scott Dawson want to leave WWE amidst rumors of frustration.
Wilder is the second tag team personality in WWE over the past 48 hours to come forward and suggest rumors of him wanting to leave WWE are false. On Monday, Karl Anderson used his seven-year-old son to send a message to WWE fans that they shouldn't believe everything they read. While reports and rumors ran rampant that The Revival's Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder had requested their releases from the company, Wilder seems to be setting the record straight.
Nearly a month after the rumors surfaced and with The Revival now tag team champions on Raw, Wilder spoke with Mirror Online, and during the interview, explained that the rumored reports weren't 100% true.
"I won't touch on it too much, but what I will say is, that it was lost in translation," Wilder stated. He added, "There were some things that got out there that I don't think people knew the full story about."
When the rumors first surfaced, Wilder said the duo decided not to correct the Internet speculation because they wanted to use it to fuel them towards a better standing with WWE. At the time, they weren't completely happy with how they'd been utilized but they worked better angry and with something to strive for. He explained that they saw the rumors and said, 'We'll have fun with the internet over that, as they don't know what's what, so we're not going to tell them otherwise.'
Now that they have the titles, Wilder says the team has placed the responsibility upon themselves to elevate the entire tag team division on Raw. "I think, with us as champions, we're going to do everything possible to do that," he said.
What This Means
Perhaps The Revival wasn't pleased with things, but as champions, they're now in a place they want to be, can see themselves getting the credit they deserve and are looking to grow the division and make it more respectable. As champs, it seems clear, WWE doesn't want them going anywhere.
