All I keep reading on wrestling sites is that Vince McMahon is on a crusade to push younger stars,that he realises that it is the need of the decade as to ensure the future of the company.

Now while I admit, WWE have been trying to push Sheamus, and are not doing that bad a job, what about everybody else?

The following stars SHOULD be the future of WWE:

MVP, Kingston, Christian, Miz, Carlito, Swagger, JoMo, Ziggler, DiBiase Jr, Rhodes, Masters R-Truth and Bourne.

Yet, at the moment anyway, WWE just lacks faith in them. Think back, when was the last decent mid card feud? You have to go back a long way.

WWE had hit gold when they half pushed Kofi. The crowd loved him, he had the charisma. But thats all it was, a half push. WWE let backstage politics get in the way of a decent push and dropped the ball.

WWE seem to have no faith in Bourne, Masters, Carlito, Christian or MVP. All of them are very rarely seen on tv. Bourne jobs, Masters plays with his pecs, Carlito is just shown on camera once in a while, Christian has been irrelevent since returning to RAW and MVP longs for the days when he was the longest US Champ in history.

JoMo is being put in random matches, along with R Truth and Ziggler and Avatar is in a average feud with Matt Hardy. No decent feuds between them. The same goes for DiBiase, while Rhodes was written out of storylines just to lighten the load on the creative team.

So, loyal readers, I ask you, is WWE really pushing their young stars or are they dillusional? (from VKM, Michael Hayes and Brian Gewritz to the creative monkeys)
