Dash Wilder Reveals what Match The Revival Pitched for WrestleMania 35, Talks Fastlane


During a recent interview with Talk Sport, Dash Wilder noted that The Revival pitched a “2 out of 3 falls” tag-team match with Bobby Roode and Chad Gable for the upcoming WWE WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On what The Revival pitched for WrestleMania: “Personally this year – I don’t know it’s possible or within reach but we’re going to do everything in our power make it – would be a match with Roode and Gable, two-out-of-three falls, for the tag team titles. I feel like those guys have so much to offer as a tag team and they’ve only scratched the surface – especially on TV – compared to what they can do. I know what each guy is capable of individually and what they’re capable of as a team because we’ve wrestled them on live events all across the world at this point. We’ve had 40-minute matches, two-out-of-three falls matches, straight-up matches and I can’t say enough how much more they have to offer to this division and how great both guys are – as much as I love that we’ve beaten them [laughs]. I’d love to have a two-out-of-three falls match with them because the four of us will go out there, work harder than anybody else is going to work and we’ll give fans something to remember. That’s something we’re going to pitch for until the day is over. I don’t know if it’s going to happen, what’s going to go on but up until WrestleMania goes off the air we’ll be pitching that!”

On the RAW tag title match at Fastlane: “I was very happy with how that turned out and it was a match that wasn’t announced until, I want to say, Monday night? So there wasn’t a whole lot of build behind it, there wasn’t a whole lot of story behind it, but all three teams are very happy with the outcome because the crowd was there with it, the crowd was reacting, the crowd was invested and that’s what you want. And it’s a lot harder to get that when there isn’t a much of a story going into it. So for it to turn out as well as it did and go as well as it did – because triple-threats can be very tricky, especially tag teams because there’s six guys there, seven including the ref. That’s a lot of bodies in there, a lot of movement. That can become chaos real easy and I was very happy with how we worked and controlled ourselves.”

On how injuries killed their WWE momentum at first: “Like right now, we’re doing a great job with getting Richochet and Aleister [Black] established and they look great, they look like stars. They’ve been presented well and I feel like we were in a similar situation but ours just happened to get derailed by the injuries. I broke my jaw after my second Monday night, so we’d only been on two weeks and I had to get it wired shut. I missed two months, I came back and we immediately started something with The Hardy Boyz. We came out, beat them up after a match and had a good thing going towards SummerSlam. We were very excited about that because they were a team we had looked up to for a very long time. They’re just two North Carolina boys like we are and they kind of made us realise you can come from a small town in North Carolina and be successful, you don’t have to think it’s unrealistic. They inspired us more than I think they even know because they opened our eyes to the fact that we can get to WWE someday. So for us, that was going to be a dream match. We get to wrestle the Hardy Boyz at Summerslam… wooo, who would have thought that would be possible?! And then Dawson tore his bicep a month after I came back. So within three months, we had two pretty significant injuries and that really hurt. The first one, we were still around, we were still on TV. The second one was a little bit longer, more rehab for Dawson and that one hurt a lot because we were going to work The Hardyz at SummerSlam and get that opportunity the NXT guys are getting now and there’s nothing you can do about it – it’s out of your hands.”
