The Revival WWE Contract Status Update
As noted before, The Revival requested their release from WWE in January 2019 – a request that was rejected by the company. As of this past December, The Revival have not accepted WWE’s offers to remain in the company and their current contracts expire somewhere between April to June of this year.
Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp reported that as of last week, The Revival still have yet to outright reject any of WWE’s offers to remain but at the same time are also in no rush to make any decision regarding their future. Sapp also reported that The Revival’s demands for any new deal have remained the same in regards to wanting improvements made to the booking of the company’s tag team division.
Sapp also reported that while most of WWE’s top executives and backstage management have always wanted to keep The Revival in the company, Vince McMahon has yet to be fully on board due to their demands and his feelings on their act as a team in general.
WWE Ice Cream Return Update
As noted before, Good Humor revealed on their official website that official WWE-branded ice cream will be making its return, albeit not in the original ice cream bar style.
Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin reported that these new WWE ice cream sandwiches will be officially going on sale this April and will have a suggested retail price range of $3.00 to $5.29.
