Eric Young is one of the many wrestlers to come to Impact Wrestling after being let go from WWE. The others to join Impact Wrestling include EC3, Curt Hawkins, Heath Slater and the Good Brothers; Gallows and Anderson.
There are still two wrestlers that haven’t appeared yet: Zack Ryder and Rusev. But we will hopefully hear from them soon. Eric Young though, has gone on to comment about the WWE system as a whole.
What was said by Eric Young:
“We don’t need to go on and on about it, but the system is broken. It’s hard to get a word in. Even when you’re doing nothing, it feels like you’re just trying to fix people’s mistakes all day. There is no creativity.
They want everyone to do things the same and be the same and bump the same and sell the same. And there’s millions of rules, which I’m sure you guys have all heard and talked about on the show at length, and people talk about on the internet.
The secret rules. Those change daily and it’s just really hard to understand what’s going on and why it’s going on. The system is flawed. And I would say that to anyone there. I would say it to Vince himself.”
On his interactions with McMahon, he added: “I said my piece to him. He seemed to be responsive to it. And nothing ever came from it.”
“I don’t take it personally. He made a mistake and, as a leader of the company and the person that decides everything, it’s a massive mistake to pass on somebody with me.
You have a three-hour television show and you can’t find five minutes for Eric Young? Your show is broken. It’s as simple as that.
I’ve proven that I can do whatever. Any role. I’m not saying I can do it. I’ve already done it and I’ve proven that I can do it and do it very well.
So, for me, it’s a huge miss. A huge mistake. And now it’s someone else’s gain. And, personally, it’s my gain. My soul hasn’t felt this good in a long time. That’s just the truth.”
This would explain why a lot of wrestlers are angry with the company.
This does explain a lot of the wrestlers’ anger with the company. Even Tommaso Ciampa, has recently admitted he’s angry with WWE creative. It is also one of the biggest reasons why Jon Moxley left the company and joined AEW.
There were rumours at the start of the year that a lot of wrestlers weren’t happy with the company and wanted to leave. This could actually be proof of this, with him being maybe one of the rumoured people back then.
