Quick introduction to those that don't know the depths of Eric Young, he's thirty-two years old from Ontario and has been with TNA from 2004. Right moving on to why I think EY should set his eyes on another promotion if TNA continue to drop the ball with him.
Eric Young has had a variety of gimmicks he began "jobbing," comic relief with TNA but has had more serious roles along his career such as feuding with Robert Roode and Jeff Jarret even becoming the leader of World Elite who at one point. Whom I thought were going to play a huge part in the development of under-achieving, new and willing to learn talent... guess I was wrong. I've not had problems with any of his gimmicks he's shown he's a decent actor; as well as being capable with a microphone.
Lmao, take a look at these two videos... testament to him being capable of playing other roles than being a random jobber.
So now you're probably wondering, "What about his wrestling ability?" Well I'll just cover that with a few videos...
So we've covered Eric Youngs comic relief, his loyalty to the company and his abilities on the microphone and to portray other decent characters that aren't always jobbing. We've also seen him perform a few spots, moonsaults and what-not. So I guess you're wondering, that's decent wrestling but not great. (For all you DB and Kurt Angle fans, don't worry I love them too.) Well, I didn't believe I'd need to amend this to the blog because Eric Young always shows off his grapples, holds and reversals but here's a little preview anyway...
Now after reviewing all of the above and judging how he's put himself out for the company and jobbed to Robbie E for example. Do you think he should move on to another promotion? I know WWE hasn't mentioned him but he's clean and more than capable of the following, wrestling, pulling off a gimmick heel/face or tweener and he knows his way around a microphone.
I'm not posting this because "I hate TNA," or anything but he's obviously rubbed someone in the "back," the wrong way since I've seen Eric since his debut as one of the most improving former developmental talents. Instead they chose to push Crimson who can barely wrestle or speak and has been around for a few months, Robert Roode who deserves it but you can't say he deserves it more than Eric Young; I'd say about the same.
Not sure what TNA is doing with this, I'm interested in seeing the responses namely because I'm starting to feel like I'm the only person that's noticed Eric Youngs potential.
