Leaver’s remorse? There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster. Like, a lot of a lot. At times that might sound like a great idea, but it can also cause problems with having too many people running around at the same time and filling up the roster. It leaves wrestlers without as much TV time or stories to go around, and one person isn’t all that happy with how it’s been going.
Tye Dillinger was recently asked on Twitter why he never went back to NXT. In response, Dillinger actually said that he tried with no further explanation. Dillinger came to the main roster full time in April 2017 and has had limited success, with his greatest achievements being a few failed attempts to win the United States Title. He has recently been on the shelf with a hand injury but returned to action over the weekend.
Here’s what Dillinger did at his best. Check out some of his main roster work:
Opinion: Can you blame him for wanting to leave? Dillinger was big and popular down in NXT but on SmackDown Live, he’s a guy with a cool entrance and little more. On his best days he’s an afterthought and that’s not exactly a great place to be in. It’s a problem for multiple people on the main roster, including Sanity and other big names from NXT. This shouldn’t be such an issue, but there is no sign that it’s getting any better.
What should happen to Dillinger? Can he be a success on the main roster? Let us know in the comments below.
