Mason Ryan's sizable push was halted weeks ago due to his inability to connect with the audience. Nonetheless, WWE creative plans on renewing his push in the near future as they feel he has great potential. The Welsh wrestler was ultimately kept off Sunday's 30-Man Royal Rumble Match because they felt it would have done "nothing positive" for him.
Vince McMahon at least initially had an "infatuation" with Ryan, hence his fast track to the main roster last year and subsequent protection on television.
