– WWE NXT Tag Team Champions Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder recently spoke with the WWE website for a Q&A. The full interview can be found at this link. Below are highlights:
How it feels to be champions:
DAWSON: Validated. That’s the only way I can describe it. Since we were young, this was our No. 1 goal. After a year here in NXT as a tag team, tearing the house down on every Live Event, we finally got one opportunity at the NXT Tag Team Championship and we took full advantage of it. Now, we can officially call ourselves the best tag team on the planet. We have the hardware to prove it.
DASH: Exactly. It feels right. It feels like we are everything we said we were. It feels like we worked our whole lives to prove people wrong. And that’s exactly what we did.
What makes their team mesh so well:
DAWSON: For starters, we’ve known each other for more than 24 years. We grew up together in Kill Devil Hills, N.C. Besides the obvious of knowing each other inside and out, our goal since we were young was to be the Tag Team Champions in WWE. It seems all the other Superstars here wrestle to please the crowd. They wrestle to feed their egos with “This is awesome” chants. We fight to feed our families. We fight to win. If, at the end of the night, the NXT Universe likes us, OK. If they don’t, that’s perfectly fine, too. As long as our check cashes the next day, we’ll be all right.
DASH: Our bond is a bond that you can’t manufacture or reproduce. When Scott made it to NXT, we knew it was just a matter of time before I was here, and we talked about it every day. By the time I walked through the doors, we already had everything planned and ready. We aren’t here to win popularity contests or to be the most raved about on podcasts or blogs. We are here to bring back the meaning of tag team wrestling. Tag team wrestling is more than two guys slapping hands. It’s about knowing what the other is thinking, knowing what you have to do, and not being afraid to do it, whatever it takes.
DASH: We care about being the best at what we do. Not just in NXT, but in the world.
DAWSON: We are ushering in the tag team revolution here, and I honestly don’t think there’s a better team on the planet. Tag team wrestling will be at the forefront because of us, and we’re going to make a lot of money doing it.
