The Revolt, formerly known as The Revival, decided to have some fun at the expense of Vince McMahon with a new t-shirt only to have to take it down weeks later.
McMahon had plans to turn The Revival into a comedy tag team months before the company granted them the request of their release.
The idea of them turning into a comedy version of The Fabulous Ones tag team from the 80s but the tag team didn’t like the idea although they’ve made it known that they were willing to do it.
Photos of the original artwork for the team and what they would look like surfaced online. The Revolt put out a shirt featuring one of the images on it. You can see the artwork here and the shirt below:

The shirt is no longer featured in their Pro Wrestling Tee’s store and there’s a good reason as to why.
The tag team received a cease and desist letter from WWE for using the image on the shirt. BodySlam.Net reports that the letter sent by WWE claimed that the company owned the rights to the image. It should be noted that the shirt did have some edits to the image that made it slightly different from the original artwork.
Per the report, the tag team got the letter about two weeks ago, which is around the same time that they pulled the shirt.
