WWE has a problem. The company currently offers six hours of prime-time television every week, and ratings are down. How far down? Since Raw went to three hours, ratings have steadily declined, and now rest at historic lows.
The problem, aside from possible overkill, is that WWE isn't making use of its entire talent roster. While it's good business to focus more attention on the top of the card than the bottom, it's also important to make new stars as often as possible. As the current headliners leave the company, become stale, get injured or simply age out, there have to be replacements standing by.
WWE has begun attempting to make some new stars. Newcomers Ryback and The Shield have gotten monster pushes out of the gate. Other wrestlers, such as The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow and R-Truth have visited the main-event scene from time to time. It's a good start.
However, there are a number of talented workers on WWE's roster that don't see much, if any, time on television. WWE would do well to give these guys some screen exposure. If nothing else, it would cut down on appearances by Great Khali and Hornswoggle.
