• WWE Made The Revival Surrender Their Trademarks To The Company In Return For Their Release
3-Time WWE Tag Team Champions, The Revival, were released from WWE a couple of weeks ago. However, their release came at a cost.
As we noted earlier, Scott Dawson’s deal with WWE ended in April, but Dash Wilder’s deal was supposed to end in June, due to him missing time due to an injury.
Fightful reported that WWE took advantage of this situation and made The Top Guys give up “a number of trademarks” to them:
“They were going to add significant time to Dawson’s (now Dax Harwood) contract that extended him out beyond where Wilder (now Cash Wheeler) was. WWE gave The Revival an out if the duo signed over a number of trademarks that Wheeler and Harwood spent their own money to acquire.”
The deal was being worked out for a while, and WWE was successful in getting what they wanted. It is unknown which trademarks they got, but it is known that The Revival had applied for “No Flips, Just Fists”, “Top Guys”, “Say Yeah”, and “#FTRKO”.
