Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson Request Their Release From WWE



robe warriors

Dave Meltzer has confirmed a major rumor that has been circulating over the past 48 hours, reporting in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that both Dash Walder and Scott Dawson of The Revival have asked for their release from WWE.

According to reports, the RAW Superstars asked officials to be released from their WWE contracts immediately after their tag team match against the Lucha House Party this past Monday night. As of this writing they are still with the company, and are not expected to be granted their release any time soon due to the rapidly rising levels of competition.

It’s almost a guarantee there would be immediate interest from AEW and obvious money in a long program with the Young Bucks. While less of a sure thing, ROH and Impact Wrestling would most likely offer them deals, and with their style, NJPW could be a great fit if there was interest from the company.

Dash Wilder (Daniel Wheeler, 31) got his start in Georgia around 2007 working for the NWA Anarchy promotion and gradually expanding year-over-year into North Carolina, Tennessee and eventually a tour in Japan with the ZERO1 promotion.

Scott Dawson (David Michael Hardwood, 34) had a similar start in North Carolina starting in 2005. He was signed by WWE at the end of 2012 and worked for a year as a singles competitor, appearing as an enhancement talent on NXT television, and occasionally working with Rusev in a tag team before suffering an ACL injury which took him out of action for over half a year.

While Dash arrived to NXT in 2014 he was immediately packaged with a returning Dawson, and the two were called “The Mechanics”. After taking part in the inaugural Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, they won the NXT Tag Team Championships from The Vaudevillians in late 2015. Their biggest program was undoubtedly with American Alpha, Jason Jordan and Chad Gable, dropping the titles at NXT Takeover: Dallas, and regaining them at NXT Takeover: The End.

The Revival debuted on Monday Night RAW immediately following WrestleMania 33, but their run was almost immediately cut short when Wilder suffered an injury that took him out of action for two months. Shortly after his return Dawson also suffered an injury, putting the team on the shelf for another six months.

Upon their return they were used sparingly but never consistently, and almost never in ways that made them look like a legitimate presence in the tag team division, despite being considered one of the best teams in the world during their run in NXT.

    The Revival and the Women’s division are the only two things I want to see in WWE right now…
    The revival goes… I may go to

    Looking at this realistically, the is no chance the Revival would ever become anything big in the WWE at any time in the future. They are small guys who have already faced multiple injuries since being bumped up to the main roster. The reality is they are talented, yes. But at this stage, they would be far better suited with companies like ROH or AEW once it gets started.

Murphy Returns To Action On WWE Smackdown, No Mention Of Relationship With Mysterio Family



WWE Superstar Murphy returned to the ring this week on Friday Night Smackdown, losing a short match to Cesaro, who is in the early stages of a program with Seth Rollins.

Murphy had not previously wrestled since the first week of December. There was no mention of his on-screen relationship with Aalyah Mysterio or the rest of the Mysterio family, so it looks like WWE may have completely dropped the angle.

Prior to their split, Murphy and Seth Rollins worked a program with the Mysterio family for nearly the entire second half of 2020. Things escalated when it was revealed that Murphy had begun dating lucha legend Rey Mysterio’s daughter, Aalyah.

In the end after months and months of singles and tag team matches on television and pay-per-view, Murphy became a full-fledged babyface and earned the respect of the family, separating himself from Rollins in the process.

Universal Title Match Announced For WWE Fastlane, Tag Team Match Scrapped



WWE Fastlane

There has been a major change to the main event at WWE Fastlane.

It was originally announced that Daniel Bryan would team up with the 2021 Royal Rumble winner, Edge, for a tag team match against Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his cousin Jey Uso. Instead, Reigns will now defend his title against Daniel Bryan in a singles match.

Bryan emerged victorious from a grueling Elimination Chamber match at WWE’s most recent pay-per-view, but Reigns once again skirted a legitimate title defense by demanding Bryan’s earned championship match take place immediately afterwards. Reigns nearly got caught with the Yes Lock, but was able to put down his opponent with relative ease.

This evening on Friday Night Smackdown, Bryan defeated Jey Uso in a Steel Cage Match to earn one more opportunity at the so-called “Tribal Chief” before Reigns moves on to Edge and the main event of WrestleMania 37.

WWE Fastlane takes place on Sunday, March 21 streaming live on both WWE Network and, for the first time, NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming service.

Michael Cole welcomed Daniel Bryan to the ring to kick off the show. Bryan acknowledged that Edge vs Roman Reigns is the dream match everyone wants to see in the main event at WrestleMania 37. He talked about rolling out of the ring at the Elimination Chamber feeling like a failure, watching Edge spear the champion and point to the WrestleMania sign. Bryan admitted that he’s been putting his own career on the backburner for the sake of giving back to the younger stars who are ready and deserve his spot. But he’s wrestled more in the last three weeks than Reigns or Edge have in the last three months, and promises to be the one who ruins everyone’s WrestleMania dream match.

Roman Reigns came out with his entourage and mocked Bryan for finally finding his ambition again. He claimed that Bryan doesn’t really love wrestling anymore, so much as he needs it. Reigns said that Bryan needs him at the Head of the Table just like everyone else in WWE. Jey Uso took the mic and told Bryan that he wasn’t walking out of the Steel Cage tonight. He didn’t lock Roman out of the cage, he locked himself inside with a pitbull. Uso took a shot at him, but Bryan easily sent him over the top rope like a chump and stared down the champion.

King Corbin def. Montez Ford

This was supposed to be a tag team match but Corbin refused because he’s a singles star, and demanded a singles match against either member of the Street Profits. Corbin won a short but solid match with the End of Days after Sami Zayn caused a distraction outside the ring. Zayn demanded that he return the favor in his match, but Corbin refused and stormed off.

Angelo Dawkins def. Sami Zayn

Another short but solid match with a distraction finish. Zayn had it won after an Exploder Suplex into the corner and lined up for the Helluva Kick, but noticed Montez Ford yelling at the documentary crew outside the ring. Dawkins rolled him up for the win. Zayn screamed at the doc crew and lost his mind after the match, choking out one of the camera guys and demanding to know who hired him and if he was with “the company”.

Reginald tried to give Carmella a bottle of champaign backstage, but she called him a snake and knocked the bottle out of his hands. Carmella called Reginald out for his obsession with Sasha Banks and fired him!

Dominik Mysterio def. Chad Gable

Dominik once again looked really good working through the basics here, and Gable being Gable was able to handle more of the technical stuff and make it look good. Commentary played up that Dominik was going to be a big star in the future but he was still just starting out and Gable was at the peak of his ability. Then Dom dodged a moonsault and rolled him up to win. Rey Mysterio immediately took to the apron and dove onto Otis, taking him over the announce table.
