WWE: Officials Unhappy With Superstar’s Ring Work

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE officials are apparently unhappy with Shad Gaspard’s ring work. Although Cryme Tyme was initially released from the company on account of bad behavior, it’s being said that while their backstage attitudes have seen a tremendous improvement, it’s the slow learning which Gaspard has displayed that have many backstage in WWE questioning his future with the company.

Shad recently had a meeting with Johnny Ace, and it was explained to him that the company feels they cannot rely on him as a solid in-ring performer because his wrestling skills are not not up to par with his partner’s. As most can see, Shad’s ring time is generally very limited when he is wrestling in tag matches, with most of the wrestling being done by JTG. Shad’s limited ability is also the reason why you never see him in singles matches, and company officials are unsure whether or not they will ever be able to push him as a singles wrestler if the time ever came to break-up Cryme Tyme. It should be noted that Gaspard trains down at FCW while in between road trips, however it appears as if his work is not improving with the amount of quickness that WWE would like.
