Dash Wilder says he’s had to fight for everything his whole life and has the scars to prove it. Growing up in the mountains of North Carolina, Wilder quickly learned that the only way to survive was by exploiting the weakness of others. Today, Wilder brings that meticulous nature into the ring. Together with his tag team partner, Scott Dawson, Wilder plans on continuing to pick apart the competition in Raw's tag team division.
In 2015, Dash & Dawson, known collectively as The Revival, made it all the way to the semifinals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, falling to eventual tournament winners Samoa Joe & Finn Bálor. Following that, the pair of ring generals downed Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady en route to challenging The Vaudevillains for the NXT Tag Team Championship. Their pursuit paid off in November, when they dethroned Aiden English & Simon Gotch to win the tandem titles.
The ruthless roughnecks have since declared themselves the best tag team on the planet. Though they were defeated for the championships at NXT TakeOver: Dallas, they now they get an opportunity to prove their mettle as part of the Raw tag team division.
