Where has WWE gone wrong with Tyler Breeze - and how to fix it

Tyler Breeze was one of NXT's longest running superstars until he was promoted to the main roster last year and it seems this is where it all went wrong for the self-obsessed star. 

Breeze failed to win a championship of any kind during his NXT career and many fans predicted that eh was to be given the opportunity to defeat John Cena for the United States Championship on his main roster debut, as a way of repaying his loyalty. 


Breeze instead made his debut on Smackdown as Summer Rae's new boyfriend and immediately stepped into a rivalry with Dolph Ziggler, a feud that should have elevated him to the mid card of the main roster.

Instead, it seemed this feud failed to suit him in the way that WWE had hoped and Tyler and Summer then decided to go their separate ways, and Summer actually managed to have a match at WrestleMania this year.

Tyler has since failed to be used correctly by WWE and was even used to put over fellow NXT superstar Apollo Crews last week in his Raw debut. Where did it all go wrong for Breeze?


Tyler Breeze is currently 0-49 when it comes to his in-ring record in WWE in 2016. He has by far the worst record in he company currently with the likes of Heath Slater and Bo Dallas currently living the dream as part of The Social Outcasts. 

WWE could have done so much better with Breeze if they used them in the same way as they did in NXT and allowed him to first be accepted by the WWE Universe. Putting him in a feud with Dolph Ziggler as his first rivalry was the worst way to introduce him to an audience that was perhaps unaware of him before. 

Breeze's gimmick is one that is considered unique and WWE has failed to give Breeze many of the opportunities he deserved, with many fans questioning why he wasn't paired up with Dolph, since it is a tag team just waiting to happen. 

Breeze himself doesn't seem concerned about this damning statistic, laughing it off on Twitter after being was asked if he should go back down to NXT:

This gives the impression that Breeze only cares about the money he is making rather than the opportunities that he is being given to fulfill his dream, which hopefully is not the way he intended the statement to be received.
