WWE announce The Revival have had contracts AXED with rumours Wilder and Dawson could join rivals AEW


THE Revival have been released by the WWE after months of talks - and could join their bitter rivals AEW.

The talented tag-team - made up of Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder - have been criminally underused since being called up from NXT.

Despite winning the RAW championships twice, they have barely been seen on TV in months and weren't at WrestleMania 36.

And the WWE today confirmed the duo are leaving the company, and free to join their bitter rivals.

There have been rumours for months the pair could end at Cody Rhodes's AEW promotion, once their no-compete clause is over.

A statement said: "Effective today, Friday April 10, 2020, WWE and The Revival have agreed on their immediate release from WWE.

"We wish them all the best in their future endeavors."

Fans reacted with excitement at the news - and urged All Elite Wrestling to sign The Revival up as soon as possible.

One replied to the WWE: "You never treated them well."

Another added: "About time. Hope they go somewhere where they’ll be utilised."

And one said: "AEW will welcome them and respect their talents."

The Revival shot to fame on the NXT brand - putting on a number of stellar matches before their call up in April.
