The WWE Roster Rundown: SmackDown 2/10

Hello! My name is Trevor, and I am here to bring you this week's installment of the SmackDown Roster Rundown. It's a different kind of recap that focuses on the individual performers and how well they performed on a show-by-show basis, rather than looking at specific events or matches.

Each wrestler will be graded in four categories. In-Ring is simply that, their in-ring ability, though more than the others it's graded slightly on a curve. Why? Well, the Big Show is never going to technically outwrestle someone like Daniel Bryan; that much is obvious. But he can still wrestle a good big man match and look good in the ring without being maybe as athletically impressive or technically sound as a smaller wrestler of a different style.

There's also charisma, which describes their ability to connect with the audience and non-verbal acting such as posture and facial expressions; mic work, which is both the quality of their promo delivery and to an extent the content, though I realize oftentimes that's scripted and not their fault; and finally, their gimmick, how much of a character they are and how well they live it on a weekly basis.

They'll be graded from A to F, with A being excellent, B good, C average, D poor and F actively terrible. I confess to being a fan first, so it's possible that sometimes my own opinions will bleed through, but I maintain an effort to be objective. And, as always, opinions vary, and you are always entitled to disagree with me and let me know why in the comments. I live for discussion.

That said, let's see this week's SmackDown Roster Rundown.
