• WWE Is Interested In Top AEW Tag Team
According to Fightful Select, WWE wants to bring AEW Tag Team FTR (fka The Revival) back to the company:
“WWE has expressed interest internally about possibly bringing back the team formerly known as The Revival.
In 2019, the two passed up what were then huge offers of $850,000 each, with Mark Carrano even mentioning that he could possibly get them to $1 million each before they left for All Elite Wrestling.
WWE is unable to approach FTR directly (right now).”
FTR is one of the top tag teams in the world today. Below are their major accomplishments in pro-wrestling:
– 2x WWE RAW Tag Team Champions
– 1x WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions
– 2x WWE NXT Tag Team Champions
– First WWE Tag Team Triple Crown Champions
– 1x WWE 24/7 Champion
– 1x AEW World Tag Team Champions
– 1x ROH World Tag Team Champions (current)
– 1x AAA World Tag Team Champions (current)
At an upcoming indy event, FTR will be managed by Bret Hart for one night only.
FTR will FINALLY get their chance to be managed by Bret Hart when they take on the team of Brian Pillman Jr & Brock Anderson with Arn Anderson!
It happens on Friday June 10th in Webster, Ma!
