The WWE has always been about making the stars and letting the big name talent have their turn in the spotlight but after the draft, wrestling fans have noticed that RAW seems to now be stacked with main event players. Now it may end up being a good thing for some of the fans to see all these huge names on RAW like Batista, Jericho, Cena, Triple H, Edge, Randy Orton, and many others but what does that mean for some of the mid card talent on the show? Well it means gloom and doom because with all of those stars, that gives the younger talent less time to get over and the backstage politics will be ever so important to suceed.
There are some mid carders who may end up suceeding on RAW but its a small number; guys like Sheamus, The Miz, Ted Dibase, and John Morrison may end up becoming stars but thats it folks. Guys like Carlito and Goldust may end up on the chopping block like Shelton Benjamin due to the huge roster size.
MVP and Kofi Kingston must be happy men like the rest of the guys on SmackDown now because SmackDown really does lack big names. Jack Swagger and The Big Show is now going to be the world title draw for May and yea it may sound funny but now there is no reason that WWE cannot make stars on that brand this year. SmackDown is full of up and comers like Kingston, Christian, MVP, and others but also it has some veterans to put these young guys over like Big Show, Kane, and CM Punk. SmackDown should be even more entertaining because now it will be a show focused on the wrestling and it will also showcase the wrestlers in ring ability on a weekly basis.
I think this is the year that WWE takes it huge step in creating some new stars and if you look closely to the rosters, you could see at least eight guys who could get a mega push this year. I believe it will be good for the company in the long run and it sure as hell will make for some great television.
