Dash Wilder of The Revival recently spoke with The Mirror out of the U.K. for an interview. During the discussion, Wilder addressed recent rumors regarding he and Scott Dawson asking for their WWE releases, what to expect from the tag-team scene in the company going forward and more. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On reports that he and Scott Dawson requested to be released from their WWE contracts: "Hmm, I won’t touch on it too much, but what I will say is that it was lost in translation. There were some things that got out there that I don’t think people knew the full story about. I don’t think it aggravated us, it kind of gave us… again, we like to be angry. We like to be mad at things and have something to fight for. So that gave us more fuel for the fire and we were like… ‘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.'"
On big things on the horizon for the WWE tag-team scene: "I think things are going in the right direction. Right now, it’s a very difficult time for it, it’s a certain season and everything is dialed in and focused in on that particular area, if you know what I mean. There’s a show in a few weeks that’s kind of a big deal, so there are directions that are set in place that can’t really be altered. Come April, May and all that, I think we’ll see a lot more tag teams and a lot more screen time and storylines involving tag teams. I do think there’s a lot behind the scenes – we’re doing a lot to ensure that, and it will come to fruition in the coming months."
