UPDATE: We reported earlier today here on eWn that The Revival once again requested their WWE releases last week. The requests were not granted for a second time. According to a report from Bodyslam.net, the two turned down their most recent offer to re-sign with the company. Their latest offer was reportedly worth more than $700,000 per year. That is the same offer Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson eventually accepted, but The Revival turned it down.

Dawson and Wilder are "just ready to go" and continue to be "extremely frustrated." They simply don't want to sign new deals no matter what WWE offers. Dawson's contract is up in April, while Wilder's is up in June.

I can't wait to see them hit the Shatter Machine on Marko Stunt.  They're going to be a great addition to AEW'S tag roster.

700k a year is a nice chunk of change though. I wonder what AEW will offer them?

Almost makes me wonder if they're not pushing to see just how much $$$ they can milk Vince for.

Though at the same time, if Vince keeps putting the Revival in the dumb shit they have been, what's he gonna do to them after they ink big-$$$ deals and they can't go anywhere for the next five years?

900k a year to allow someone to make you look like a complete bumbling idiot on TV...Wonder how much the guys who got paid to kiss McMahons naked ass on TV got paid? How much is dignity actually worth?

According to jackass fag meltzer, they are offered 975k a year, each. A million a year, for 3 years.

They are very good, but WWE doesn't give a fuck about tag team wrestling so there's no reason for them to sign aside from the obvious. If they want to bet on themselves and wrestle meaningful matches, then they leave. If they're okay just collecting a check and getting embarrassed weekly, then they stay

They're certainly not pegged, at least for the time being, as being the designated flag carriers for wwe anytime soon, so I see nothing wrong with shopping your value out in the market.   Wrestling has gained some stability nowadays in terms of options, so they should see what AEW, Japan, and everyone else has to offer.

They're not going to be difference makers for AEW. They're great wrestlers but not needle movers. Vince offering that much is insane.

Vince offers that much because they are his toys and no one else can have them. He has done that all through the WWE/F's history.

I'm not saying I necessarily disagree re them being needle movers, but you never know - all depends on how much they're capable of creatively.
 
I mean, we all know Vince would absolutely laugh at the idea of Jurassic Express...and look how over they are.
 
Most (or at least a lot of) fans were very much over Dean Ambrose...yet look at what Jon Moxley has done.

Jurassic is something different than the usual so it's interesting. Revival is just vanilla. Unless they can offer something very different than what they have done in the WWF, I wouldn't even spend the money on them if I was AEW.

The match vs the Bucks alone is worth AEW throwing money at them. That's been brewing for years and would be a huge draw for them

They should take the money and run (or stay, as the case may be).
