There are always wrestlers we want to see make it. Whether they had before and are looking for a second run at the top or someone who hasn’t quite made it but deserves to.
Here is my list of who I feel are the most deserving of a push along with a recap of their previous glory before sliding down on their respective rosters.
Here was a wrestler who was truly a sight to behold when he first started in the WWE then WWF.
He was unstoppable against all those who went against him. He holds the record for most men eliminated in a single Royal Rumble (11) and would go on to become WWF champion though only for one night, a two time Intercontinental champion, nine time WWE tag champion, one time WCW tag champion, one time hardcore champion and ECW champion.
Yet when he removed his mask a few years after entering the squared circle he began to lose that terrifying nature that made him so good.
Sure he became ECW champion after losing his mask but he hasn’t done much since.
Now he basically has meaningless matches with the rookies on NXT or jobs to Drew McIntyre.
Though there is some hope if they can team him with Rey Mysterio more often as their recent match against the SES showed some great chemistry between these two.
Was there any doubt that he would be on this list? Chavo was at one time a great wrestler in the Cruiserweight division in WCW and has held numerous titles in many of the major promotions including the Cruiserweight championship twice, ECW championship, and WWE tag team championship twice.
Yet now he is best known as the guy who lost virtually every match he had against Hornswoggle for the better part of an entire year as well as being the butt of the jokes made by the guest hosts of RAW.
Chavo is the kind of wrestler that could excel if given the chance to. He would fit perfectly into either the IC or US title picture and would be able to put on great matches with any of the other guys trying to get their hands on those belts.
It appears he may be starting his push with his feud with Primo but it is too early to tell.
Here is a guy who was built up to be the next IC champion only to never have it happen. Dolph was a WWE tag champion as part of the Spirit Squad before being sent back to OVW.
When he returned to the WWE he came back as a much more developed character and began to win some big matches.
It would have seemed that he should have been guaranteed that he become either the IC or US champion with how well he did in matches and the heat he would get from fans.
He seemed like a surefire winner for the Money in the Bank match at this last Wrestlemania but was unsuccessful and since then has just been floundering in the mid card.
Another highly decorated wrestler with major title reigns in both the WWE and TNA.
A two time ECW champion, two time TNA champion, nine time tag champion, hardcore champion, light heavyweight champion, European champion, and three time IC champion, Christian has definitely shown that he’s capable of winning gold and can put on great matches.
Yet after ECW folded and Christian came to Raw he has gotten lost in the mid card.
He was the other wrestler besides Dolph Ziggler who was heavily favored to win the MITB match at Wrestlemania and if he had he could easily gotten the push he needed to keep his momentum going after losing the ECW title on the final ECW.
Morrison is the greatest success story from the show Tough Enough and has shown to be able to have great matches.
He was an ECW champion, five time tag champion, and three time IC champion.
Yes his mic skills may be lacking at times but he can get the crowd on his side regardless. He out of everyone on this list seems the most prepared to become a world champion.
Yet since he’s lost the IC title he hasn’t been able to really find a place where he fits in anymore.
He falls into the same category as guys like Christian and Ziggler whom the WWE doesn’t know how to use properly which led to Morrison haphazardly teaming with R-Truth in a squash match against ShowMiz at Wrestlemania.
Yet there seems to be the msot hope for him with his current win over World Champ Jack Swagger in a non title match, which should hopefully allow him to become a contender for the title after Extreme Rules.
