Backstage News On The Revival's Contact Situation

WWE has been working extensively to keep The Revival, who reportedly requested to be released back in January, but they haven't been able to reach a new deal with Wilder and Dawson yet.

The company offered The Revival massive five-year contracts worth $500,000 annually a couple of months ago. Dawson and Wilder had yet to sign the contracts, and unfortunately for WWE officials, it doesn't sound like they're going to have a change of heart.

According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com (h/t Ringside News), The Revival still haven't agreed to WWE's contract offer, which is a sign that the current Raw Tag Team Champions could be leaving the company soon.

After The Revival reportedly asked to be released from their contracts, WWE tried to repair the damage in short time. Dawson and Wilder defeated Bobby Roode and Chad Gable to become the new Raw Tag Team Champions in February.

Following their short title reign, however, The Revival were involved in a number of "embarrassing" segments.  It seemed as though the company was trying to punish the duo for simply not agreeing to WWE's new contract offer.

Last week, The Revival once again captured the Raw Tag Team Championships, so WWE is obviously still hoping that a big push will help them change their minds. It'll be interesting to see if this last-minute push is enough to convince Dawson and Wilder to stay.

Mike and Maria Kanellis also reportedly asked to be released in January, and there were hints that they were both leaving when their deals expired. However, the duo wound up signing new contracts with WWE. Perhaps the same fate awaits The Revival.

What This Means

It's been said that WWE is offering superstars five-year terms on new contracts in order to prevent them from leaving for a rival company. But so far, The Revival have shown that money isn't all that matters to them. They obviously want better character direction and opportunities in WWE. But right now, it doesn't look like they're content enough, and it wouldn't be a surprise if they wound up leaving in short time.
