WWE: Superstars Who Would Benefit from a NXT/Superstars Format Change
The current WWE roster is packed with talent. Wrestlers like Cody Rhodes, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, CM Punk, The Miz and Sheamus have a very strong connection with the fans.
Whether it be incredible in-ring ability, exceptional character development or a combination of the two, these wrestlers have gotten the WWE fans eating every single thing they do.
Other wrestlers like Tyson Kidd, Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins and Yoshi Tatsu have great in-ring ability, but the fans don't see them as serious threats to any championship.
Then there are "wrestlers" like Mason Ryan and Ezekiel Jackson, who have the size WWE officials love, but have extremely limited wrestling skill and have a personality has exciting as watching paint dry.
Recently, I wrote an article regarding a change to NXT and WWE Superstars that would be beneficial to the WWE (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1039347-nxtsuperstars-how-a-format-change-would-benefit-the-wwe-and-its-wrestlers).
With these certain changes, many of the WWE roster have the opportunity to step up and showcase their talent. Also, with the recent talks of WWE bringing a Cruiserweight show to their YouTube channel, some of these wrestlers may have an even bigger chance to step up.
I feel these are a few wrestlers I feel would benefit from a change to NXT and Superstars.
Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins
It's well documented that the Tag Team division needs serious help. Seeing Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins form a team is great.
Not only does it get them out of no-man's land, but it adds another Tag Team to the weak division.
Justin Gabriel fits the category of someone who can wrestle, but has no personality to connect with the fans.
A format change to Superstars with a revival of the Cruiserweight division could be exactly with Gabriel needs to become a top competitor.
The lack of the Women's/Divas division can't be ignored. With a small percentage of the WWE Divas having wrestling ability, the rest is just eye candy.
By giving them more time and bringing back someone like a Fit Finlay to help train them would certainly boost the division, possibly to the Attitude Era days.
The son of The Million Dollar Man as always shown great talent in the ring. However, even as a part of Legacy with Randy Orton and Cody Rhodes, he was never able to grasp the fans.
Lately, with his "DiBiase Posse," which are the fans he hangs out with before shows in the arena parking lots, he has been getting the crowd behind him.
He could use NXT/Superstars to show he has great in-ring ability and this also gives him a chance to develop a bit of a win streak before contending for the United States Championship.
Since being kicked to the curb by The Miz, Alex Riley has done nothing but come out of the losing end of a short feud against Dolph Ziggler.
Riley has the WWE look, he just needs a little more charisma and some time to shine. Maybe a tag team with Mason Ryan?
Much like Justin Gabriel, Tyson Kidd is a great wrestler with no character. A rejuvenated Cruiserweight Division would do wonders for his career as well.
Drew McIntyre and JTG
I know, I know, but follow me on this. Unless this current Drew McIntyre angle is going somewhere, he'll certainly be fired. Why JTG is still on the roster is a mystery as well.
Typically, the comedy is left for Santino Marella and now Natalya (which is a bigger joke than this slide).
These two, a man from the streets and a man with class teaming together, learning each other's culture. If you can get past that, you'll also see these two are very good in the ring and I think they'd work quite well together.

Big Vinny Mac has the most to gain from this. Aside from the money he'll make from the creation and build of new superstars, it would force every wrestler to step their game up.
This would overall give him a better product and once again, make him more money.
What Do You Think?
Would these wrestlers benefit from a format change? Or will they all eventually take the road to obscurity?
Would a format change help any wrestler? Would it help the WWE?
