The Revival Exclaim They Are Not ‘Sports Entertainers’
As seen on WWE Raw last night, The Revival turned some heads when they cut a post-match promo exclaiming they are not “sports entertainers”, but rather “professional wrestlers”. The promo came after the tag team defeated two local talents in quick fashion and WWE.com has since published the following on The Revival:
The revival of The Revival continues, as Dash & Dawson put on an (accurately) self-described “tag team wrestling clinic” against a pair of intrepid locals who found themselves on the receiving end of a picture-perfect Shatter Machine in mere minutes. But The Revival’s post-match interview quickly became the focus of their evening, as they had a few choice words for the Legends scheduled to appear at next week’s Raw 25th anniversary show.
Taking full advantage of the live mic they were offered, Dash & Dawson took aim at veterans from “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to Shawn Michaels to The New Age Outlaws by designating themselves as “professional wrestlers” instead of “sports-entertainers” who were molded by a boardroom. Proclaiming that “beer baths” and “crotch chops” had turned WWE into a mockery, The Revival promised they would never be pressured to change from their old-school mentality and presentation, and left with a message that was clear, simple and across the board: This is their Universe now.
