Former WWE Star Took Major Vince McMahon Criticism As 'A Badge Of Pride'
Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler, then known as The Revival, consistently faced criticism from Vince McMahon while he was still in charge of WWE's creative direction. Although they won tag team championships while on WWE's main roster, they were given undesirable bookings and storylines meant to embarrass the duo.
Harwood and Wheeler decided they were going to leave WWE when their contracts were up, and Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows were in a similar boat, as the two teams kept getting booked to face each other. Harwood recalled how they ended up getting terrible feedback from McMahon after a match together.
"We came to the back and he said, 'Well, that is absolutely the worst wrestling match I have ever seen in my entire life.'" Harwood stated that he took the harsh criticism as a "badge of pride" and viewed it as an accomplishment considering the amount of wrestling matches McMahon had witnessed for over 50 years.
