Okay, so The Revival were one week off in their assessment that they could get one over on a squabbling Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley. But Dash & Dawson’s prediction came true all the same, as civilities broke down between the thrown-together heavyweights in the middle of an impromptu tag team match. The tag team specialists capitalized accordingly, earning the kind of marquee win that has long been frustratingly out of reach for the two-time NXT Tag Team Champions.
Unsurprisingly, Reigns & Lashley’s alliance was a tenuous one at best, though it seemed they would work through their aggression and power their way to a victory all the same. But when Reigns tried to steal the winning tag in the same manner Lashley had last week, things went pear-shaped in a hurry: Reigns olé’d a charging Dawson into Lashley on the apron and Speared the chrome-domed “Top Guy” —but unfortunately, Dash Wilder was the legal man, and he trapped The Big Dog in a match-ending roll-up. So, The Revival finally get a signature victory, and Reigns, who was chewed out by Lashley following the loss, is forced back to square one.
