What's the story?

On Monday Night Raw, it is alleged that Scott Dawson and Dash Wider, otherwise known as the Revival asked for their release from the company. Not much is known about how that went down, but a bizarre Twitter interaction may have given us the WWE and Revival's next move.

In case you didn't know...

It is reported that The Revival immediately asked for their release backstage after their match against Lucha House Party on this week's Monday Night Raw.

The tag-team have been heavily linked with All Elite Wrestling after a 'dream match' narrative was cultivated between them and All Elite Wrestling's The Young Bucks. Although any promotion would be lucky to have a team as talented as The Revival.

The heart of the matter

So what's going on with the WWE and Revival? Did the company turn down the Revival's request to leave? If they did, how long are the Revival's contracts? Well, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reported that WWE are fearful of them leaving and keen to rebuild that bridge.

This is something that bizarrely seems to have been confirmed by a Twitter account under the name Michael Harwood who replied to a Cageside Seats tweet regarding the Revival's request to leave the WWE with the following,

"They were asked to give them three months to prove things are going to change"

But why is a tweet from this seemingly random account that important? Because Scott Dawson's real name is David Michael Harwood. The tweet has since been deleted, but here's a screenshot of it.

Has the WWE's response to the Revival been revealed?

Before you start thinking it could just be a random Twitter account, ask yourself why is the real Scott Dawson following it, and why was the tweet and account subsequently deleted after it started to get noticed?

Scott Dawson follows @theharw or Michael Harwood - but why?

So, the implication is that this is either a member of Scott Dawson's family or is Scott Dawson himself and that he revealed the WWE's response to his and Dash Wilder's request to leave.

What's next?

Three months from now is April, which would mean that if the WWE doesn't 'prove things have changed' in that time that the Revival will be free to walk. That would suggest that their contracts are up in three months also. Something I tweeted about yesterday!

Stay tuned for more developments on this Revival story.

Do you think WWE can prove they have changed in three months and convince the Revival to stay? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
