The Revival def. Heath Slater & Rhyno
December 18, 2017
The Revival were beginning to make waves in Raw’s Tag Team division before a series of injuries hampered their progress, but Dash & Dawson are all healed up and ready to roll. The “top guys” returned to action in earnest this week on Raw, making relatively quick work of Heath Slater & Rhyno with a face-busting Shatter Machine to The One-Man Band after Rhyno was dispatched at ringside.
Apart from Dash & Dawson’s return, two interesting developments sprang from this contest. The first was that Titus Worldwide — complete with new Director of Statistics Dana Brooke — took notes on the match in the backstage area. The second was that, following Kurt Angle’s directive that Slater & Rhyno needed to “toughen up,” The Man Beast revealed he had an idea on how to bring his partner’s intensity up in order to keep pace with the likes of Cesaro & Sheamus.
