Why Ryan's Push Was Halted

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that the reason why WWE halted Mason Ryan's push following last year's Survivor Series PPV is because the company felt he failed to connect with the audience. It's still being said, however, that WWE is planning to renew his push as they believe he has great potential.

As far as Ryan's non-participation in the Royal Rumble match is concerned, it's being said that WWE decided against featuring him in the match as management felt the bout would have done nothing positive for him.
