Sanity had to be one of the worst NXT call ups to the main roster. The group were massively successful within the black and gold brand before being moved up to SmackDown in 2018. From there it all went downhill for the faction. Eventaully they all went on their separate ways with varying success. Alexander Wolfe went back to NXT UK and joined Imperium. Killian Dain returned to NXT. Nikki Cross has done extremely well in the main roster, she has created a successful tag team with Alexa Bliss and has even had a Women’s title shot.Eric Young was relegated to WWE’s Main event and was rarely seen on TV.
Young has now re-joined Impact Wrestling and has a lot to say about his time in WWE. While being interviewed by Busted Open Radio, Young said that if you cant find a spot for him in a three hour show then the show is broken. Here is the full quote, courtesy of Fightful:
“Sometimes you fall out of favor. It’s not what you did or didn’t do, I never changed who I was and I’m not going to. I’m not a political person, never have been, that’s probably been a hindrance to my career. I refuse to be political. The truth is, the system is broken. It’s hard to get a word in. Even when you’re doing nothing, it feels like you’re trying to fix people’s mistakes all day. There’s no creativity, they want everyone to be the same, bump the same, sell the same, and there’s millions of rules, those change daily. It’s really hard to understand what’s going on. The system is flawed and I would say that to anyone there and Vince himself. I’m not the first person he’s made a mistake on and I won’t be the last person he’s made a mistake on.
I don’t think it’s anything personal. Anytime we were in a room together and we spoke, he was always respectful. We had two decently long conversations, they went well, and I thought he understood where I was coming from. I’m a man and I’m not gonna stand in a hallway for four hours to talk to him. That could be wrong and stubborn on my part, but I’m a 40-year-old man and I’m not gonna wait in the hallway like a child to maybe get five minutes to talk to him. I said my peace, he seemed to be responsive, but nothing ever came from it. I don’t take it personally. He made a mistake and as the leader of the company and the person who decides everything, it’s a massive mistake. You have a three-hour television show, if you can’t find five minutes for Eric Young, your show is broken.”
Young was always one of Impacts best talents. The fact that he has returned to the promotion that nurtured him as an athlete will be good for both the company and Young. There is no doubt that Young will have a better chance at success than he ever did under Vince McMahon and WWE
