The Former Revival Hit With WWE Cease And Desist Over T-Shirt Design

Harwood and Wheeler getting lots of interesting mail lately...

Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler of FTR (aka Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder of The Revival) have been hit with a cease and desist by WWE, regarding the design of one of their t-shirts, according to a report from Cassidy Haynes of bodyslam.net.

The design depicted the two in the colorful, baggy outfits that were reportedly proposed to them by Vince McMahon, as a means of turning the two wrestlers into a comedy act. The shirt featured the phrase "New Name, Same Game", with the drawings of Harwood and Wheeler in the costumes.

The shirt was available on Pro Wrestling Tees, but was taken down roughly two weeks ago, around the same time that the two received the order from WWE. The letter claimed that WWE owned the rights to those images.

The two wrestlers were previously hit with a cease and desist from independent wrestlers Zane Riley and Caleb Konley, over the use of the phrase "The Revolt". Riley and Konley wrestle together with that team name, and felt that Harwood and Wheeler were co-opting that name for their own use as a duo.
