Ezekiel Jackson: He's Just Not Ready to Stand On His Own in WWE

Ezekiel Jackson is a not a main event performer.

A lot of wrestling fans have tricked themselves into believing that Jackson is ready to become a star. It's a common occurrence when WWE starts pushing someone. The fans will make themselves believe they have to in order to justify the push.

People see him getting a couple of wins and some strong performances, and they automatically assume that he's ready.

The honest truth is that Jackson is not.

As far as an in-ring performer goes, Jackson is average or below average. He has some decent power moves, but that's about the extent of his skills. He has yet to show any ability to tell a story in the ring. For now, all that he has going for him is his incredible physique.

With that in mind, WWE needs to figure out a way in order to build up momentum and credibility for a few months before trying him out as a singles star.

You simply cannot throw Jackson at the likes of Edge and Undertaker at the moment. Those two veterans can carry matches, but it would be painfully obvious that Jackson is not on their level.

Improvement has to come before he's ready to work at the main event level.
