It seems like Tye Dillinger is heading for an attitude change, as the Perfect 10 has been caught at recent house shows attacking his tag team partner.
Since his call up after Mania, Tye Dillinger has been sparingly used on Smackdown Live. The former NXT standout got a huge pop when he emerged at the number 10 spot at the 2017 Royal Rumble, as the crowd was chanting “10” before his music had even hit.
While he may have been over in NXT, putting on stellar performances against the likes of Andrade “Cien” Almas and Bobby Roode, his main roster arrival has been rather flat. Rarely being used on television after April, showing up to put over other talent or occasionally fail to capture the US title, it seems like the creative team just doesn’t have anything for the Perfect 10.
Or do they? At recent WWE Live Events, Dillinger has been shown acting in a heelish manner. He had been tagging with Sin Cara at recent local shows, but over the past few events, Dillinger has sucker punched Sin Cara after their matches, leaving him layed out in the ring as he walked to the back.
Most recently, at last night’s event in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Dillinger and Sin Cara faced off. Sin Cara would win the match after Dillinger yelled at the crowd, saying that they couldn’t chant “10” because none of them were perfect 10s except for himself.
Could a heel turn for Dillinger mean big things in the future? Let’s hope so.
