‘Road Dogg’ Jesse James made an interesting disclosure recently, claiming that Aiden English was never given a consistent WWE push because of his looks. The American was a strong presence in the tag team scene, first teaming up with Simon Gotch as part of the Vaudevillains before forming quite the popular tandem with Rusev (AEW’s Miro) as part of the Rusev Day stable that also had Lana (CJ Perry.) during his tenure with the promotion from 2012 to 2020.
During his recent Oh…You Didn’t Know podcast, James revealed why English was never given a chance as a singles star.
“I don’t think a lot of people were behind Aiden English from the get-go, and I think it was totally about his looks. Because if it was about anything else, you would know he is extremely talented. “He is great on the mic. He works now with IMPACT as a commentator and is really good at it. Did that at NXT for a while.”
Aiden English went on to join Impact Wrestling after being released from WWE in 2020, but he recently claimed that he expects 2022 to be his last year as a wrestler.
