There are only so many spots on the WWE main roster, which means not everyone gets to be featured on TV every week.
Former Impact Wrestling World Champion Eric Young knows this all too well, as he hasn’t been used consistently since getting called up to the main roster.
Young was once the leader of Sanity, but during an interview with News Channel 5 he opened up about why the group didn’t work on the main roster, and he also revealed why he didn’t want to take on a producer role with WWE.
“The Sanity gimmick didn’t work on TV. The other two guys went back to NXT and I was asked to go to Monday Night RAW. Right now, it’s a holding pattern for me. I can say that I’m very well taken care of. I’m very respected in the circles there.”
“I did some producing. I was asked to come do some producing, so I did 16 weeks of that. I liked it, but I’m not ready to retire. I’m lucky. I’ve avoided getting hurt lots of times. I’ve definitely been injured. Wrestled with a broken ankle before. Wrestled with a broken wrist, broken fingers, sprains, pulls and all that, but I’ve never missed a show ever in 20 years.”
