Right now, there are only two true full-time stars in the WWE: John Cena and CM Punk.
Don’t believe me?
You’d have to go back to Hell in a Cell on October 3, 2010 to find a pay-per-view main event featuring full-time talent that didn’t involve one of those two (Brock vs. HHH, two extreme part-timers, at SummerSlam 2012 was the only main event not involving Punk or Cena).
That is 31 out of 32 pay-per-view main events in a row that featured CM Punk or John Cena in some form. With Cena and Ryback likely to take the final match at Extreme Rules, this trend is sure to continue.
The point of these facts is that the company desperately needs to build new talent. Cena is currently 36 years old and Punk is out healing from injuries. Somebody has to step up.
There is an entire roster of choices that WWE can choose from. Guys like the members of The Shield are doing just fine and being groomed for a big role some day. Others are not so lucky.
Here is a list of 10 talents who are being wasted and not used to their full potential.
These men and women won’t necessarily become huge stars, but they can easily be used better than they are now and help create a more compelling, deeper roster than we are seeing today.
