Scott Dawson: Bio
Scott Dawson has been a survivor his entire life. Forced to grow up fast, Dawson overcame adversity and became the “man of the house” at an early age. Dawson cut his fighting teeth through bouncing in local clubs — developing his take-no-guff attitude and strong jaw. Competing alongside tag team partner Dash Wilder, Dawson systematically tore apart the opposition in NXT.
Though the duo, known collectively as The Revival, did not emerge from the inaugural Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic as the victors, they nonetheless put in an impressive showing, making it all the way to the semifinals, where they lost to eventual tournament winners Samoa Joe & Finn Bálor. Following that, the pair of ring generals challenged The Vaudevillains for the NXT Tag Team Championship, and their pursuit paid off in November, when they dethroned Aiden English & Simon Gotch to win the tandem titles.
The ruthless roughnecks have since declared themselves the best tag team on the planet. Though they were defeated for the championships at NXT TakeOver: Dallas, they moved on to become part of the Raw Tag Team division and immediately proved their mettle by scoring a victory over The New Day in their Team Red debut.
