WWE Superstars come and go. They come with a lot of potential and go when the story lines run dry.
Hornswoggle has not had a decent storyline for some time now. So how is it that he still keeps a spot on the roster?
Simple. He appeals to the kids. They see someone their size and can relate to him.
I for one do not care to see Hornswoggle compete in the ring. It's like watching child abuse.
So what to do with a diminutive veteran of six years who until last Christmas did not have the ability to speak?
Easy. Give him a job where his newfound ability to speak would bode well. Make him the full-time host of Saturday Morning Slam, WWE's new kiddie show.
The opportunities are endless. Have him introduce segments. Send him behind the scenes at a WWE pay-per-view event. Let him answer e-mails from kids. Do a weekly segment where he asks the Superstars and Divas questions submitted by children.
Hornswoggle could reinforce WWE's "be a STAR" campaign by closing the show with some kind of inspirational, supportive activity.
It's perfect. It fits right into Hornswoggle's wheelhouse. It also goes a long way toward ridding him of a past that includes such stints as Little Bastard, as well as an unflattering and unfunny satire of Jim Ross complete with palsy-stricken face.
He remains employed, and the WWE has an extra spot to recruit promising young Superstars.
Plus, it keeps him right where he belongs, and that is out of the ring.
