The Revival appears to be the real deal.
The tag team is back on TV and picking up some steam. However, that doesn’t take away the fact that both Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder have been injury prone since making it to the main roster.
Make no mistake about it though, fans are rooting for them to make it big.
It’s well known by now that Dawson suffered a bicep injury in August. Typically, that type of injury would have kept him out for 4-6 months.
A partial tear would have to require 3-6 weeks of rehab time. It appeared that the severity of his injury seems to be somewhere in the middle. Dawson suffered the injury at the WWE live event in Halifax.
Although he worked live events the next two days after the incident, he was examined by WWE doctors while backstage at a Raw TV event.
It was a real shame that he suffered the injury because his tag team partner Wilder had just returned to action after he recovered from a broken jaw.
As a result of this injury, The Revival’s match against The Hardy Boyz at the SummerSlam pay-per-view event was pulled off the table. The pair debuted the night following WrestleMania 33 but have yet to establish an enticing feud on RAW due to injury.
They are known for their incredibly physical style and attempts at hurting superstars in the ring. However, they have been largely absent since their debut due to Dash Wilder suffering a Jaw injury which kept them off of TV for several months.
Having only just returned several weeks prior to the injury to begin a feud with the Hardy Boyz, the team were finally starting to pick up momentum once again. Now, they are back and rocking and rolling.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in San Antonio, TX at the AT&T Center on the USA Network, The Revival picked up another victory in tag team action and after the match cut a promo about how they are not sports entertainers but professional wrestlers.
The word pro wrestling has been nixed from using on TV for some time now in the WWE due to WWE Chairman Vince McMahon’s beliefs.
One WWE fan decided it was a great idea to bring up the subject and tweet Wilder, who responded but later deleted it. He stated that Vince was “is already” upset in reference to the fan noting that McMahon would be upset about saying, professional wrestlers.
Wilder also had some good comebacks to fans who were trying to rile them up:
