keeping it casual
So where is he?
The discussion turned to the length of the show, and James insisted that it’s easier to watch and write a two show. He said no one understands “the monumental task” of writing three hours per week, but thinks RAW has a fresh start and look now after the shake-up that is helping. “Do I wish I could get a two hour and twenty-minute show? Sure, because I could get the Luke Harpers and Tye Dillingers on,” he admitted. “I don’t want a third hour, but I’d love to have an extra fifteen minutes.” X-Pac admitted he wasn’t a fan of the brand split years ago, he is this time around. James joked that he didn’t understand it the first time mainly because he was high, but he thinks the split gives people “opportunity” to shine.
"Randomly gave up"? :mj2I feel like Dillinger JUST got promoted, yet he's ALREADY lost in the shuffle. That's awful. This is worse than Breeze. They just randomly gave up on him.
Tye and Tyler are similar in that they were the hottest mid card acts in NXT, yet kept jobbing to the stars and never getting anything substantial in terms of a push or storyline. Breeze at least had a brief stint on the top of NXT in Spring and Summer 2014 with Kidd, Zayn, and Neville. Dillinger never got that in spite of getting over. Even if he was a walking meme, they should've used that momentum to put him in a hot feud with the NXT Champion. In spite of all this, he could've STILL been a solid mid card champion. I feel like he was on TV for two weeks before inexplicably disappearing. That's an embarrassing lack of effort on behalf of WWE. So to conclude, I disagree that they could even be compared to Bryan's level of potential derailment on NXT, but the main roster did neither guy any justice when they could've been solid mid carders."Randomly gave up"? :mj2
There was nothing random about any of this. It's just been par for the course.
NXT offloads the people they don't have plans for when they threaten to derail the product they have planned (there was a Bryan-like upswell benieth both Breeze & Tye befrore they were offloaded), and they're left to tread the waters of purgatory on the main roster indefinitely.
