Dash Wilder briefly spoke in a new interview about reports surrounding The Revival requesting their WWE releases prior to winning the Raw tag team titles.
“Hmm, I won’t touch on it too much,” Wilder told the UK’s Daily Mirror. “What I will say is that it was lost in translation. There were some things that got out there that I don’t think people knew the full story about.”
As we previously reported, despite rumors suggesting Dash and Dawson’s release request stemmed from frustrations relating to The Revival’s position within the company, the duo had actually become disillusioned with the state of WWE’s tag team division as a whole.
Wilder also says the online speculation didn’t really bother him or his partner Scott Dawson.
“I don’t think it aggravated us,” he added. “It kind of gave us… again, we like to be angry. We like to be mad at things and have something to fight for. So that gave us more fuel for the fire and we were like… ‘we’ll have fun with the internet over that, as they don’t know what’s what, so we’re not going to tell them otherwise’.”
