If you're told that you're going to be given opportunity after opportunity & you keep busting your ass only to not be rewarded, eventually you'll stop busting your ass so much for the same pay & the same position because you come to realize that it's all bullshit & you've just been naive & drinking the Kool-Aid for so long. Or, as C.M. Punk called it "imaginary brass rings." A glass ceiling, if you will.
The problem is that WWE has been coasting so long with no changes so that now damn near the entire roster is at that point, Kofi included (he was just the example I gave, there's a lot more too, I don't have anything against Kofi) & it reflects on the show as a whole. It is part of the reason why the show is so boring & forgettable. It's just paint-by-numbers every single show, every single week & the roster has all fallen in-line as they realize too that now they're just a part of the grind & nothing is going to change. So it has just become a job for a paycheck to a lot of the guys. It's no longer about trying to up the ante or steal the show or make an impact. It's now, hey, I gotta go seven or eight minutes, let's get this over with.
There isn't any passion or emotion anymore, no one seems to be hungry.
