• RAW Wrestler Takes A Shot At His Current Position In WWE
Breezango was no doubt one of the most over teams on SmackDown Live throughout 2017. But unfortunately, WWE did not capitalize on the opportunity. Instead of giving them some good feuds and a push in the ring, WWE booked them in backstage segments in which they did detective parody every week.
The duo is rarely seen on TV since being moved to RAW. Things just got worse as one half of the team, Fandango, recently suffered a shoulder injury due to which he will be out of action for the rest of 2018.
Seeya guys in 6-? Months ?

This means that there are very low chances of Breeze getting an appearance on TV. A fan on Twitter questioned Tyler about the same thing but in a strange way. He wrote: “Hey Tyler, ready for six months of getting your a** kicked as a jobber till Fandango gets healed up? lol”
Hey Tyler, ready for six months of getting your ass kicked as a jobber till Fandango gets healed up? lol

Breeze’s reply showed how much annoyed he is about his current position in WWE. He would obviously want to get in the ring and compete in some matches instead of remaining backstage all the time.
Hasn’t that been the last 3 years? https://t.co/FLwgwrLRpm
