Each time the camera lights go on, one star shines brighter among the rest. This individual is victorious, constantly showing themselves and the WWE Universe they are deemed worthy of air time, our time and our hearts (or hatred for our beloved heels). Each month, this particular person will be awarded NXT Superstar of the Month and for the month of June, this title goes to The Revival’s Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson.
I won’t lie, it’s usually difficult for me to choose the NXT Superstar of the Month because there are so many talented individuals who have moments of victory, success or stolen the attention of members from The NXT Universe. Even though I had to think for a brief moment as to who to choose this month, The Revival continuously kept popping up as my first choice. Clearly, they are the best choice.
Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson made history at NXT TakeOver: The End when they had their rematch for the NXT Tag Team Championship against The American Alphas. Dash and Dawson lost their titles to Jason Jordan and Chad Gable at NXT TakeOver: Dallas and they were nothing short of determined to get them back. The majority of The NXT Universe (myself included, a huge fan of The Revival) didn’t think Dash and Dawson would retain their titles. Everyone was either behind The American Alphas or thought they were a sure win. To our surprise (happily surprised for me), The Revival retained the titles, becoming the first 2x NXT Tag Team Champions.
I couldn’t be more thrilled for my boys. They are really a dominant force in NXT who without a doubt live up to their name, reviving the Tag Team division. I have no doubt they will be keeping these titles around their waists for quite some time, including winning their rematch against The American Alphas in a 2 out of 3 Falls match scheduled for next week. Regardless of the length of their reign, they have solidified their place in NXT history which most of the NXT roster – past, present and future – can’t say for themselves.
