It’s about time for a title. The night after WrestleMania 33, the Revival debuted on Monday Night Raw, sending a lot of fans through the roof. The Revival are quite possibly the best NXT tag team of all time and their promotion to the main roster seemed to be a long awaited coronation. Things didn’t go quite that way though as a lot of roadblocks got in their way, but now we’re on to something new.
This week on Monday Night Raw, the Revival won the Raw Tag Team Titles by defeating Chad Gable and Bobby Roode. This is the first Tag Team Title reign on the main roster for the Revival and comes a few weeks after rumors that the team might be leaving to head to AEW. The team had been chasing Roode and Gable for a few months, with their previous matches ending in controversial fashion.
It’s a long time in the making. Check out Revival’s debut on the main roster:
Opinion: I was in the crowd the night the Revival first showed up on Monday Night Raw and have been a fan for a long time. It’s very cool to see this finally happen and it’s very long overdue. The team has a unique style in this day and age and make it work very well indeed. I’m hoping it’s a nice long reign instead of something just to make them feel better, which certainly isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
