• RAW Tag Team Champion Reveals The Match They’ve Pitched To WWE Officials For WrestleMania 35
During a recent interview with talkSPORT, RAW Tag Team Champion Dash Wilder (of The Revival) revealed which match they’ve pitched to WWE officials for WrestleMania 35.
Below is what Wilder said:
“Personally this year – I don’t know it’s possible or within reach but we’re going to do everything in our power to make it – would be a match with Roode and Gable, two-out-of-three falls, for the RAW Tag Team Titles.
I feel like those guys have so much to offer as a tag team and they’ve only scratched the surface – especially on TV – compared to what they can do. I know what each guy is capable of individually and what they’re capable of as a team because we’ve wrestled them on live events all across the world at this point.
We’ve had 40-minute matches, two-out-of-three falls matches, straight-up matches and I can’t say enough how much more they have to offer to this division and how great both guys are – as much as I love that we’ve beaten them [laughs]. I’d love to have a two-out-of-three falls match with them because the four of us will go out there, work harder than anybody else is going to work and we’ll give fans something to remember.
That’s something we’re going to pitch for until the day is over. I don’t know if it’s going to happen, what’s going to go on but up until WrestleMania goes off the air we’ll be pitching that!”
