The Revival's 5 Best WWE Matches

Would you SAY YEAH on these choices?

Admittedly, the names Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler may take a little while getting used to. Contrary to that, there's a pretty good chance that the former Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder won't miss a beat once they return to the ring, whenever and wherever that may be. Considered one of the strongest and most cohesive tag teams of the modern era, the former Revival members have delivered in big situations.

Looking back through their brilliant tenure in NXT, as well as their rather hampered time on WWE's main roster, Dawson and Wilder have churned out performances that have gone far beyond expectations of the standard WWE tag team match. An Anderson and Blanchard for contemporary times, you could just as easily say that Dawson and Wilder have been the best opponents that a number of their peers have ever worked with.

Let's take a little stroll down memory lane and look back upon the best performances we've seen so far from the "Top Guys". Barring unforeseen circumstances, we can expect more tandem classics like these down the road.


5. Vs. American Alpha (NXT TakeOver: The End)

Revival alpha

With it sadly looking like Jason Jordan will never wrestle again, the skinny on his WWE career will probably be "he was Kurt Angle's illegitimate son." I prefer to remember his potential as a true athlete, teaming with fellow mat standout Chad Gable as American Alpha. And I'd also like to remember this often unsung bout.

The grace of the babyfaces matched up with the Swiss timepiece-level precision of Dawson and Wilder to epitomise the Revival formula: old school tag rasslin' + the wonders of modern innovation and athleticism = gold. This was Steiners vs. Midnights in 2016.
