So with a large amount of WWE wrestlers being released from their contracts or negotiating to get out of their contracts early there are a lot of wrestlers that I think that WWE should put focus on some of these talents since that there is a lot of good potential that just keeps on getting screwed over by creative.
Goldust: I am going to be putting Goldust low on this list mainly with rumours going around for the past few days that he could be doing the same as his brother and trying to release himself from his contract. Goldust over the many years has been a rather mid-carder for WWE and when he returned in 2013 and won the tag team titles with his brother, Cody, I thought things might have went well for him. But instead they went rather badly, especially when they decided to have Cody dress up as Stardust. Ever since he returned after injury he has been used more as a comedic role and spent something in the span of three-four months trying to form a tag team with R-Truth which, some of it has been good, it has went on for far too long and then had them forming two other teams to then have their partners turn on them and then have Golden Truth be actually formed. Hopefully this does go somewhere. But I just realised something rather baffling to me, THEY ALREADY DID THIS. Years ago when Booker T was still a active wrestler he and Goldust formed a tag team where Goldust was trying to get Booker to join him in rather bizarre ways and this is just a repeat. 14 years later and WWE are reusing stories. Nevertheless I would have loved to see Goldust at least have one last run with the Tag Team titles if he is deciding to leave the company.
The Ascension: Ever since The Ascension came up to the main roster from NXT they haven’t gotten over well with the audience what so ever. Even though that they were over with the crowds in NXT which does rather baffle me as a fan. I think that a reason why they didn’t go over well with the audience is because of the terrible booking that creative did give to them. They should have booked them to be rather strong being able to take out most of the tag team roster. However due to the time that they were brought up the tag team division was pretty naff to begin with. There were not that many good teams then and they just then got pushed back into a corner then teamed with Stardust for a few months. What I think WWE would need to do would to be re-package them in a rather different to what they are. Have them be sort of like The Eliminators, since there finisher is rather similar to theirs, have them interfere in matches with whoever the tag team champions are at the time and then keep on booking them as good heels from then. Hopefully something good could happen to them when Konnor comes back from suspension.
Dolph Ziggler: How is it that a former World Champion can go downhill so fast? Possibly due to injuries that he has sustained. But when was the last time that we have seen Ziggler actually do something rather big and major? A very long time. He has been put in some of the worst story lines that WWE have had in the past several years and I think that it would be a good chance for him to actually win a title and become a credible wrestler yet again. He hasn’t had a title since cashing in Money in the Bank briefcase on Alberto Del Rio and that was quite a while ago. Currently he has been in a really long and boring programme with new NXT call-up Baron Corbin and that should have been over a while ago instead of still continuing on. I hope that something does happen good to Ziggler soon because he just seems to be in a rather rut when it comes to going anywhere currently in WWE, a title win (quite possibly US Title) could see him reignite his career as champion.
Zack Ryder: What can I say, Zack Ryder is the one superstar that I can think of that gets screwed over time and time again by WWE’s creative. He had a great run in December of 2012 winning his first ever single title on the main roster beating Dolph Ziggler for the US Title, then going on to drop it to Jack Swagger, got assaulted by Kane in a storyline between him and John Cena and then finds his ‘girlfriend’ Eve Torres making out with Cena. From then there was nothing major that he was in until this year when he was a part of the Intercontinental Championship ladder match where he managed to surprise a lot of people and was able to win it, but then went on to then loose the title to The Miz on the next night. I think that WWE were stupid to have him not even have a legitimate run with the title. What they should have done was have The Miz win then have Zack going up against him and then when Maryse was brought in for Miz and then bring in Emma to be on Zack’s side that way it would be a good programme that they could do and could see Zack being a good mid card competitor. Hopefully he could be back as a contender to a title sometime this year.
