As noted, NXT star Scott Dawson of The Revival was recently asked on Twitter if he would be participating in the six-team tag team turmoil match on SmackDown this past Tuesday night. Dawson replied, "We're the hottest act in tag wrestling. You think we're going to debut in a stupid multi-team gimmick match?! #TheRevival #TopGuys #GTTOAT"
Dawson went on to delete the message and posted a follow-up, noting that his original tweet "was stupid."
Admittedly my last tweet was stupid. I've worked w/ all those teams & have the utmost respect for them. Stupid tweet to try to rile fans.— Scott Dawson (@ScottDawsonWWE) November 23, 2016
Road Dogg also explained his response to Dawson, stating that it was a joke and he was just ribbing him as seen below:
@jonmartin_TKO yes they do, soon! It was a joke but y'all look so hard for the negative that you end up finding it. Think!— Brian G. James (@WWERoadDogg) November 23, 2016
Dear @ScottDawsonWWE this is an official apology for ribbing you on social media. I've upset the balance of the "universe" I beg forgiveness— Brian G. James (@WWERoadDogg) November 23, 2016
@Raw_Wrestle just messing with a buddy of mine. Y'all take Twitter WAY too seriously.— Brian G. James (@WWERoadDogg) November 23, 2016
@jhack97 I totally think that, I was joking around because I'm friends with the guy. C'mon man!— Brian G. James (@WWERoadDogg) November 23, 2016
