• Vince McMahon Halts Humberto Carrillo’s Push

Former 205 Live wrestler Humberto Carrillo got drafted to RAW and got an immediate singles push.

Humberto was scheduled to face AJ Styles for the United States Championship this week on RAW, but the match never happened as he got attacked by The OC.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon has halted Humberto’s push because he thought he wasn’t getting over with the fans:

“Vince is done with Humberto Carrillo for the time being. He’s giving him the ‘Cedric Alexander.’ Like you’re still gonna see him on TV.

I’m sure he’s gonna win here and there, but like it’s exactly like Cedric Alexander. He got a few weeks, Vince thought he wasn’t getting over, so he’s just — he’s done.”
