The Revival headed to AEW sooner than expected?



The big news on Friday was The Revival getting their release from WWE.

WWE had sent Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder home before the announcement. The belief was that the company was going to make them wait out the rest of their deals.

Wilder, due to various injuries, would’ve seen his contract expire in June because time was added to his deal while Dawson’s contract was set to expire this month.

At the time of the news that WWE let them go, there was speculation as to whether there is a 90-day non-compete for Wilder’s contract since it was an early release for him instead of a case of his contract expiring.

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet shed some light on the situation in a post on his official Twitter account. He noted in a tweet that they do not have a non-compete clause. Thus, they can sign with any promotion right now instead of waiting.

“FYI - I’ve confirmed with sources that The Revival do not have a no compete clause and are free to work wherever now, hence the “immediate release” wording from WWE.”

As noted, the belief is that they will be headed to AEW (All Elite Wrestling) now that they’re free from WWE.
