Don't get me wrong—as entertaining as some of the WWE superstars on the RAW and Smackdown brands can be, most of the time, when it comes to actually playing a decent role in the industry, they are pretty pointless. It's a wrestling corporation, after all, so that should be their main focus. And be good at it.
However, on the flip side, there are some WWE Superstars and Divas that show intensiveness and a passion for the business. But without having the chance to be pushed forward by the WWE writers, they can't show their full potential.
Now, because I am very lazy, I will do five from each list—five useless WWE Superstars and Divas and five of them who need a massive push to achieve their full potential in the business.
The good old Brit himself. I used to have a lot of respect for him as a competitor, but now I feel he is nothing but a waste. There is no point to him being on the show. He doesn't entertain me in any way, shape or form, apart from his silly hair and the way he wears his trunks. He doesn't have in-ring ability that up to scratch anymore. So why be there at all?
As much as I value him for being a British WWE Superstar—as that is very rare—I think now it's time to leave it to the amazing likes of Wade Barrett.
God, this man entertains me with his dancing. But the guy is big. He has around three moves. He cannot speak English. Overall, I have no particularly outstanding memories of The Great Khali, therefore I believe he needs to take a step back. I don't think the WWE is a place for him anymore.
Ah, this unique fellow. His half-brother, "Dashing" Cody Rhodes, must be so proud to see Goldust like this. Don't get me wrong; way back in time, Goldust was pretty great in the ring—possibly better than Cody now—but to me, there seems to be no point to Goldust anymore, hence his appearance here on my list. He's in quick matchups that fill gaps where you don't get to really see him, anyway.
Since her separation from the side of Zack Ryder, she's probably competed on Smackdown twice. Maybe more. But the point remains, rather than the WWE being wise and using more than the same four divas every week on Smackdown, they could be training Mendes up week-by-week and letting her compete and win the crowd over. But at the minute, she seems like she shouldn't be named on the roster at all, and therefore is here on my list.
Okay, so there's two of them, but I couldn't help but feel that this pair is completely useless. I've been watching the WWE again since late 2009, and I've seen the pair compete singularly and together—around three or four times. The other times they have appeared is when they used to escort guest hosts to the ring on Monday Night RAW. The pair's only decent in-ring ability is the Switch-a-roo. But that's something any twin could pull off.
I really do adore Santino. When I see him, he is the ultimate highlight of RAW. The image I chose shows just how much ability he actually has. Now Santino's only appearances are in dance contests and tag team action in his quest to win over Vladimir Kozlov—which is, I suppose, his push in the eyes of the WWE, but he's destined for one-on-one action, and he's destined for greatness. Push needed!
Since late 2009, I have seen Natalya compete twice.
As much as I love the Hart Dynasty as a whole, she needs more one-on-one action. She's probably destined to become one of the WWE's most talented Divas, but once again, as usual, the WWE is blind to see it yet. She's a bit feisty, which will always make for a powerful diva. Shove her in a match with Michelle McCool. I'm certain she'd come out on top.
Why has he not been any sort of champion yet? He is amazingly entertaining, and the crowd loves him. High-flying action means you'd never get bored. You can tell he loves his career and has a passion for the WWE and what he can do in the ring. I reckon if he gets more one-on-one matches and a massive push in the right direction, he's well on his way to becoming a massive star.
Woo. Christian. The WWE just does not realize what they have in front of them. Instead of letting Dolph Ziggler have a shot at the Intercontinental Title on this week's edition of Smackdown, why could they not have let Christian?
For many reasons—one being, Kofi Kingston versus Christian would have been a much more interesting match. The speed of Kofi and his unpredictability, combined with Christian's veteran status, would have been much more enticing. Ziggler versus Kingston, first of all, is a match we have seen for a couple of weeks on the trot now, making it dull and boring.
Christian, like Matt Hardy (if you haven't already read my article on Hardy, full of my opinions) is adored by many fans and has great ability, yet the WWE, once again, fails to see what they have. Use him!
Yes, the picture is of LayCool as a team, but the only half of this team I believe is now destined for greatness is Layla El. Gradually, week by week, we see her getting more feisty, charismatic, and even better in the ring. If only she could accept the title she has is hers and hers only, and be able to defend it with the ability she has in the ring so deep inside herself, she could go down in history, in my opinion, as one of the greatest women's champions.
She needs to split from Michelle McCool and enter a feud. This will enable her to: 1) build up a fanbase and let the crowd love her, 2) show she has always been the only women's champion, NOT McCool; and 3) go on to compete for the Women's Championship on and off for the rest of her career, and let people have faith in her that she can do the same over and over again.
I already know a few of my close friends who would disagree with many of the people I've chosen in my lists, but I hope people out there could actually see where I'm coming from with the Superstars and Divas I have chosen. It isn't like I've said these Superstars and Divas are awful at what they do. They just are not used often enough, or smartly enough, to even have a point in them being in the company anymore. Comment and even get back to me personally with how you feel. Thanks for reading my articles!
