NXT tag team get new name
The tag team of Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson, popular amongst many fans of NXT for their work in the tag division have officially gotten a name from WWE. The duo had been billed by their individual names, but it appears that after using the hashtag ‘The Revival’ for a few weeks, that will be their new official name.
Speculation comes due to the fact that the duo have been announced as ‘The Revival’ at recent NXT live events.
On the bright side, at least they're not called team Dash and Dawson. On the not so bright side it seems as if their ‘the Mechanics’ name which is popular amongst fans will not be used in an official capacity any longer.
The Revival makes sense as a name and does almost as good a job at communicating Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson's throwback-style. So a team that's often been compared to The Brainbusters has their own "The" name. And advocates for Mechanics will always have Dawson's training jacket so that is something.
The NXT tag team champions have a bright future ahead of them with their mat-based approach gaining traction with the crowds and it is hoped by WWE that with their new name, they will begin to push more merchandise.
