The poor attempt to imitate Edge/Lita didn't help either.
I don't recall Edge losing many matches when he held the briefcase. At the time he was consistently making a fool of Matt, Kane and Flair and being a complete jackass while they fed him midcarders in his offtime or let him host a show to talk shit about people when he was injured.
I think AJ is actually suffering because they lost faith in Dolph Ziggler. They stuck them together hoping there'd be a big spark and controversy, but he's consistently character-less and can't cut a promo. They gave him Big Zeke to help him some more, but while he's a great wrestler/worker he just lacks in the personal charisma department, so they ended up reducing the time all of them get.
The chemistry in the group is also just off.
I think WWE threw them out there hoping they would immediately spark and when they didn't get the reaction they wanted they dialed them back. They don't have patience for anything.
