With the advent of Monday Night Raw becoming to a three-hour show permanently, in an ideal world, WWE should use the extra hour to promote some of the younger stars they have under contract.
Their developmental territory, FCW, has several stars who already have wrestling experience from the independent circuit, and their main roster has several men who have been misused or under-promoted in the last few years.
WWE's midcard (Intercontinental/US Title) scene used to be where the future WWE or World Champions were built.
Nowadays, it's like a wasteland for people that WWE have no clue what to do with.
Before I get into who I've chosen to go on this list, I'm going to give honorable mentions to current superstars who didn't quite make this list.
In my opinion, men like Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio are above the midcard scene.
They're men who I look at as being upper-card superstars—not quite main-eventing, but beyond IC/US Title level at this stage in their careers.
Tyson Kidd is another name who deserves an honorable mention, and if he wasn't going into a tag team program with Justin Gabriel in the near future, then he's one who would definitely be on this list.
Feel free to leave your own suggestions for superstars that WWE should build their midcard around over the next 12 to 18 months. Let's get to it.
