WWE has done a good bit over the years to limit their occurrence, but there is only so much they can do. Injuries are an industrial hazard that comes with the job. They’re unavoidable. Even the safest, most technically sound wrestlers sometimes injure others or themselves. Be that as it may, for the fans and the wrestlers themselves, injuries are an irritation. Sometimes, they can outright derail history. Edge, Daniel Bryan, and many others have had their careers ended or, at least, shortened by them.

It appears, much to my personal dismay, that we are watching history once more be derailed by injuries. The Revival has been sidelined by injury again. The first time was Wilder getting his jaw broken, which put them out of commission for 6 weeks. This time, it is the other tag team partner who is injured. The irony makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time. Dawson reportedly has a ruptured bicep. Regardless of the severity of the tear, this injury means their callup momentum has been completely stalled not once, but twice. I hate to say it, but we are nearing their exit from WWE, I feel.

It sucks to say that as well. The Revival are my second favorite tag team in wrestling, behind the Young Bucks, but don’t tell them that. Either of them for that matter. I would prefer to live.

The Revival are an awesome tag team, and every time they are on my television set, my eyes are glued to it, even when they are merely jobbers taking part in a random brawl like they were when last they were on my television set. Nevertheless, their leaving the WWE is the last thing I want to happen, but I feel it is coming unless something major happens to give them momentum upon their being reunited.
