A large portion of the problem is that Evan should not be / should never have been on Raw. I'm not saying he is not talented enough because I have high hopes for him. But he is on a show with 95% of their roster being heavyweight Top-cards in that kind of senario you can only believably push him but so much. I think he should have been on Smackdown to begin with after being drafted from ECW. If he were on SD instead, he could have had some amazing programs with Ray Mysterio, CM punk, Chavo, Ziggler, Mcintire, rodes, the list goes on. My point being he could have had a --much-- larger push and by now may have been a Mid-top tier with the proper footing.
Bourne is one of the reasone I pray they bring the cruiser weight belt back, I think his career would soar with that kind of title run.
