The Revival was ready to quit the WWE last month but on Monday Night Raw, Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder finally reached the top and won the WWE Raw tag team titles.

The team came in with “FTR” on their tights and wanted to prove that they were the best tag tram in the business and did it when they beat Bobby Roode and Chad Gable for the titles in a very long, hard fought match.

Revival’s WWE road to the tag titles

The Revival has been frustrated at their status in WWE but more than that, they were frustrated with the WWE not seeming to care about the tag team division.

The WWE convinced them not to quit and promised they were making changes. They proved that on Monday Night Raw.

After months of silly things like Lucha House Party Rules of 3 on 1 and makeshift tag teams and a dominant team losing their title thanks to a pee joke, this week, WWE let their actions speak louder than their words.

The match was long, lasting over two commercial breaks and letting two great tag teams deliver a great tag team match with no shenanigans. The Revival won with a great tag team move (The Shatter Machine),

Now, it is time WWE continued to prove they care about tag teams and this is not just a one-time affair to make The Revival happy.

The Revival: FTR

With The Revival as the new WWE Raw tag team champions, fans have started to ask questions about Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder.

One big question is what The Revival: FTR means.

There are two answers to this. FTR in the beginning stood for “f*ck The Revival” and was started by The Young Bucks as a friendly social media feud.

The Revival then changed that and adopted FTR as their motto: “Forever The Revival.” The tagline is theirs now and the future of the WWE tag team division might be in their hands.
