Smackdown: 10 Talents That Could Revitalize the Blue Brand

As of late, WWE seems to have very little interest in the happenings of Smackdown, and even the show as a whole, on some occasions. This is evident, by the fact that Smackdown has had the same main-event match for more than three Pay-Per-Views, and only once has there been a stipulation in the series.

I'm talking about Randy Orton vs. Christian for the World Heavyweight Championship. Now, these two are good in the ring and put on a great match, but it's becoming very tiresome to watch. I'll say that Smackdown looks to be doing OK with what they have: playing on Randy's anger issues and turning Christian heel. All good things, but there's only so much that can be done.

Now, since the draft, Smackdown has been in a bad way with losing Edge to retirement, Mysterio to RAW, Alberto Del Rio and several rising names for the sake of giving RAW more people not to give airtime too, especially with the recent Punk/HHH/Cena angle, because that takes a lot of time.

Now, Smackdown has been doing what it can with what it has left, and despite giving Ezekiel Jackson the Intercontinental Title, it hasn't been too bad, with Mark Henry on a tear, Rhodes in the hunt for singles gold and The Usos finally becoming relevant, but I still think Smackdown needs a bit more help.

Now, this isn't going to be your typical list. There will be familiar names, but you'll see a few new ones on here when it comes to talk like this, so you'll have to bear with not seeing Chris Jericho on this list (though I would love to have him back on Smackdown.).

So, here I've compiled a list of guys who could fill out Smackdown's mid-card, NOT be sent to Superstars (if they know how to be used), and main-event scene. These guys are from all over the place, so bear with me.
