Mantell spoke on this week’s Talking Smack and said that Holland is too green to be put in the main event picture:

“That guy [Ridge Holland] is not ready,” said Mantell. “He is sloppy in the ring. No wonder Big E got hurt. The guy is not that talented to be in the spot he’s in right now.” [1:08:16 to 1:08:29]

Mantell also said that he is not good on the mic, and it is hard to understand what WWE s trying to do with him.

“I didn’t mean to bring it out, but Ridge Holland is just not ready. He does stuff that can tell he doesn’t have that much experience. I don’t know what they see in him. Maybe another English guy to put with Sheamus. It’s the only thing I can see. He’s not even that good a talker” (H/t Sportskeeda Wrestling)
