TOP GUYS OUT?
This hasn’t been the first, or probably the last we will hear about The Revival setting themselves up for success once they leave the WWE. They’ve reportedly turned down numerous new contract offers from the company. WWE owns the rights to use The Revival name. If the tandem was to leave, then they would most likely use the Shatter Machine name outside of the company. They’ve also been the targets having their contracts extended due to injury. This action was reportedly taken after they had requested their release a while back.
It’s not all doom and gloom though, other WWE superstars have re-signed with the company after bad times in the company. Mike and Maria Kanellis resigned after asking for their releases. The same went for Rusev and Lana. Most recently in Ring of Honor, Marty Scurll has apparently gotten the deal of a lifetime. Could WWE get somewhat creative to keep The Top Guys?
We will keep you up to date on The Revival and their status with WWE as it happens.
