The Revival made their debut the night after WrestleMania 33. The New Day made an open challenge to any team on the roster and out came the former NXT Tag Team Champions to a huge pop from the crowd. Consequently, the Revival destroyed the New Day’s ice cream cart and  proceeded to beat them in their very first match on Raw.

Cash credited the New Day with being the most helpful trio in the business. He said, “Guys who went out of their way to help others any chance they got.” He also referred to them as, “three of the best dudes I’ve ever met.

The Revival and the New Day had quite the rivalry on both Raw and SmackDown. After their debut victory against Woods and Big E, they proceeded to shatter Kingston’s left knee.

The following episode of Raw, they picked up another win against Big E and Woods, hitting the latter with a Shatter Machine in midair for the win.
