Watch this video from 15:30 onwards, followed by this one, it's footage of Shelton and Charlie Haas at ROH from just two weeks ago. I tapped at how awesome this match was. WWE were just holding him (and Haas) down really.
Eric Escobar was very out of shape and was obviously having a hard time in adapting to WWE's wrestling style. If you add to that he always has been a below average wrestler (even in Puerto Rico). Not the case with the likes of Carlito and Judas Messiah (Ricky Banderas).
