One of the stables that seemed to be on the launching pad on the WWE rings until a few years ago, then suddenly disappeared from the company's television screens, is that of Sanity, a team composed of Eric Young, Nikki Cross, Alexander Wolfe, Killian Dain and initially also Sawyer Fulton.
Already in 2017, however, the stable begins to lose a piece, when the WWE separates its path with that of Fulton, released prematurely from his contract. In the end, however, the stable also reaches the Smackdown rings, where it lasts far too little, not even a year, between 2018 and 2019.
After having completely dissolved the stable out of thin air, Nikki Cross and her husband, Killian Dain, began to work in single, while instead Wolfe was hijacked in the Imperium and in the end, Eric Young was even released, after being drafted on Raw and never used.
Alexander Wolfe comments on the end of his stable
After being released with the wave of NXT layoffs a few days ago, the former Imperium Alexander Wolfe, wanted to pull out a very interesting story about his first stable arrived in the WWE rings, revealing to the microphones of Ringsiders Wrestling: "Going back with the plans, currently the plan before the pandemic was to bring Sanity back on stage.
But eventually, the pandemic came and Eric Young was released, although no one imagined this, not even Triple H. The only thing I know for sure because he said it himself, EY, was that one of the first who called him was Triple H, who told him 'I'm sorry man, I didn't know', I don't know at this point what he tried to do, if he tried to sum it up somehow, I can only speculate now, but there was no animosity, there was no empathy, just a bitter pill to swallow, when you ask 'Okay guys, don't you want me?...
We are all human, we all have feelings. Anyway, the original plan was to bring us back together in Sanity, so that we have the three of us together, going against the Imperium and could have done a lot of things, but in the end, as always, blah blah blah comes into play, from Eric's exit Young from the company to 'we'll do this with Killian' to 'maybe we'll put Drake Maverick on' or somebody else.
We could have formed Sanity version 2, but everyone would have wondered 'Where is Eric Young?' But in the end, none of this happened. In the end, they made the budget cuts and I was on the list too, even though I would have left anyway because my contract expired on June 15th, so they wouldn't just renew it."
Alexander Wolfe's WWE career has had its fair share of ups and downs. Originally part of the group SAnitY in NXT alongside Killian Dain, Nikki Cross, and Eric Young, the faction found great success on the black and gold brand.
When the group was brought up to SmackDown, Cross was left behind to remain in NXT, and the three men never found their footing on the main roster.
