WrestleMania notes: Revival-Hawkins & Ryder, Demon Balor


- While a Raw Tag Team title match has yet to be made official for WrestleMania 35, the build to one continued after last night's Raw.

WWE uploaded a post-Raw video where Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins challenged The Revival to a Tag Team title match at WrestleMania. Dash Wilder told them that The Revival would take it under consideration.

Hawkins' storyline heading into WrestleMania is that he's gone 269 straight matches without a win.

The Revival defended their titles against Ricochet & Aleister Black last night and won by countout. Scott Dawson was under the ring and stopped Ricochet from being able to make the count. Black laid out Wilder and Dawson with Black Mass after the match, then Ricochet hit the 630 on Dawson.

Hawkins and Ryder are both from New York, with WWE pushing that WrestleMania is taking place in their home area. MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey is hosting WrestleMania 35 on Sunday.

- On last night's go-home episode of Raw, it was confirmed that Finn Balor will be using his "Demon" character for his Intercontinental title match against Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania.

Lashley and Lio Rush did an in-ring interview and were asked about rumors of the Demon showing up on Sunday. Balor appeared on the video screen and then became the Demon. Balor said his Demon will be Lashley's nightmare.

Balor defeated Jinder Mahal & Lashley in a handicap match last week to set up him getting the Intercontinental title shot at WrestleMania.
