* ForgottenFirstMeeting: Met Wrestling/JimCornette when Dawson was an indy wrestler and Cornette was looking for new talent for ''Wrestling/RingOfHonor'' and tried to sign him. Dawson reminded him of this when they met at a ''NXT [=TakeOver=]'' event, with Cornette having completely forgotten it despite being a fan of Dawson's.

* DeepSouth: Both of them hail from North Carolina (Dawson is from Whiteville and Dash is from Old Fort), and Dawson's Southern work ethic is heavily emphasized as a part of his character, having been part of various redneck/Southern boy tag teams. After coming together with Dash, they formed hard-working, dirt and grime, smash-mouth tag team originally called the Mechanics (hinting at a clear willingness to get down and dirty), now the Revival, and they've got a Southern metal anthem called "Southern Proud" for a theme song.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Despite them cheating profusely, they still show respect for the rules of tag team wrestling and call out Lucha House Party for using "Lucha House Rules".

* FlawExploitation: His WWE.com bio states he had to do this in order to survive up in the mountains of his hometown. Shown extensively during points in certain matches, such as crawling underneath across the ring to stop a hot tag from the other side during the Revival's tag team title defense against American Alpha at [=TakeOver=]: Dallas. (On that occasion it wasn't enough, as he and Dawson botched their finisher moments later and wound up losing their titles in the end, but it was still a notable stroke of brilliance on Dash's part.)

Wrestling/EnzoAndCass and Lucha House Party.
* SignatureMove: BoringButPractical: It's not said this way, of course, but this seems to be the general ethos of the Revival, who pointedly eschew flash and even technical window-dressing in favor of out-brawling opponents. Their mantra is "no flips - just fists."

* DeepSouth: From Whiteville, North Carolina, and his Southern work ethic is heavily emphasized as a part of his character, having been part of various redneck/Southern boy tag teams. The latest and already most successful one was initially called the Mechanics (hinting at a clear willingness to get down and dirty) and their theme song can be best described as a Southern metal anthem.



* TookALevelInBadass: After he formed the Mechanics/Revival with Dash Wilder, the duo were mainly used as enhancement talent until the both took a huge leap in the mentioned trope and scored their first victory over the incredibly over Enzo and Cass.

* DeepSouth: He's from Old Fort, North Carolina, he's one-half of a hard-working, dirt and grime, smash-mouth tag team originally called the Mechanics, now the Revival, and he's got a Southern metal anthem called "Southern Proud" for a theme song; yep, he qualifies.



* TookALevelInBadass: Both he and Dawson went through this and both went from barely being on TV let alone winning a match to after an upset victory over Enzo and Cass, becoming a major threat in the tag team division. Took a further level when he and Dawson dominated the Vaudevillians to win the tag team titles. Nowadays they're crafting a resume as expert heels in highly-acclaimed top notch matches against teams like Wrestling/AmericanAlpha, Gargano & Ciampa, and TM-61.
