If true, this is disappointing to me. I understand that Eric Young had been in the company for a long time and I commend him for his effort. However, it simply wasn't good enough.Eric Young has reportedly signed a new deal with TNA Wrestling. He had been in negotiations even though his contract had ended. According to a backstage source, the new deal will allow him to take independent dates when TNA doesn't need/use him.
EY has received numerous pushes with a stupidly wide variety of gimmicks. He has lacked direction for many years, going from goofy to serious to mentally unstable all to very little effect.
Possibly as a reward for his loyalty and effort, he was even given his own stable. The World Elite had potential and I enjoyed the grouping whilst it lasted, but EY was never a convincing leader or authoritarian figure.
With all the changes and false starts that Eric Young has had on TV, the only discernible goal that I can see for them is to keep him on television. If it proves to be correct, this re-signing does not bode well. I can foresee no result other than a repetition of the same schizophrenic booking for him that we've seen already.
