WWE Releases The Revival, Hulk Hogan – WrestleMania 36 Note

WWE Releases The Revival

WWE Releases The Revival

Finally, The Revival are no longer part of the WWE. Earlier today, WWE announced the releases of ScottDawson and Dash Wilder.

The Revival’s departure should come as no surprise. Several times over the past 12 months, the duo asked for their release.

Up until now, WWE has declined their request. They offered both huge increases in pay, but it was not enough to change their mind.

Dawson’s deal was already up, but Wilder’s contract was extended due to injuries. Wilder’s contract would have lasted until mid June.

It seems that there is no 90 day non-compete cause. This means both are free to work wherever they want.

Both have been filing trademarks in recent weeks and seemed headed for All Elite Wrestling (AEW). The only issues is that AEW taped months of TV due to the coronavirus. 

Right now, there are no wrestling promotions holding events and joining AEW seems likely. Fans will just have to wait until the pandemic allows life to return to normal.

Hulk Hogan – WrestleMania 36 Note

Hulk Hogan WrestleMania Role

There were no surprise appearances at WrestleMania 36, but WWE did try. The company wanted to bring Hulk Hogan in for the event.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, a deal could not come together. The sticking point apparently involved the financial end.

If Hogan and WWE brokered a deal, there is no word on what Hogan would have done at WrestleMania 36. We do know, the 66 year old would not have wrestled.

WWE wanting Hogan is a questionable decision. Due to the coronavirus, WWE has kept older personal away from the Performance Center.

Perhaps, Hogan would have done something via satellite. With everything going on, being around others is too dangerous for someone his age.

Before it was postponed, Hogan was set for his second WWE Hall of Fame induction during WrestleMania weekend. He would have joined as part of the NWO.
