WWE’s SummerSlam card will likely be without the “Top Guys.”
According to WWE’s Mike Rome, Scott Dawson of the Revival suffered a ruptured bicep at a WWE live event over the weekend, which will force him to be out of action for an “undetermined amount of time.”
The news comes hours after Rome revealed that former Raw Women’s Champion Bayley is expected to be inactive for her match against current champion Alexa Bliss due to a separated shoulder.
Neither Bayley nor the Revival have never appeared on a SummerSlam broadcast having made their respective official main roster debuts after last year’s event.
Dawson’s tag-team partner, Dash Wilder, missed considerable time shortly after the team’s April call-up to the main roster after undergoing jaw surgery. The duo returned to WWE television last month and were currently working an angle with the Hardy Boyz, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
The Revival gained the attention of the WWE Universe during their run in NXT, which included becoming the first two-time NXT Tag Team Champions in brand history, as well as winning the 2016 NXT Year-End Award for Match of the Year for their 2-out-of-3 falls match against #DIY (Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa) at NXT TakeOver: Toronto.
SummerSlam will air live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Aug. 21.
