WrestleMania 29 is right around the corner, which makes now a great time to evaluate how well the WWE roster is doing compared to a year ago.
Wrestling is about creating stars, but how well has WWE done in that area?
Who has moved up the card? Who has been struggling? And how is WWE positioning its current talent?
Counting the pre-show, last year's event had 28 men and women wrestling. Only three of them are no longer with the company, and surprisingly, all of them are women (Eve, Kelly Kelly and Beth Phoenix).
This list takes a look at how a certain talent is perceived by comparing their involvement in last year's show to how they are booked headed into this year's show.
Wrestlers who weren't around or didn't compete at WrestleMania 28 (Ryback, Damien Sandow) are not included here. Part-time wrestlers like The Rock, Jericho, HHH and The Undertaker aren't listed either, as they're virtually in the same boat as they were last year.
Here is an evaluation of the wrestlers who competed at WrestleMania 28 and a look at if they are currently better or worse off.
