If they insist on keeping him, there are ways to better utilize him. Given his apparent speaking ability that he showed in 2014, rather than use him as a cartoon mascot I think the best way to utilize him to the betterment of the company was as a heel manager. Besides, he's been off air for a long time. There's a portion of the audience that would not even know him.
You right.

Meet & greets.

Visiting ill children.

Shilling kid friendly products associated with WWE.

Basically, what he's spent the majority of his career doing. Aside from the occasional on-screen comedy role, that's his purpose. And evidently, that's why they keep him.

They have six hours of WWE programming to fill each week. Use everyone you have.
Yeah, they should.

Except with Hornswoggle.

If your overall argument is WWE should use everyone they have to fill their six hours of programming each week, why would Hornswoggle need a bigger role to do that?

He spent the past 4 years as filler.

He doesn't need to have a more prominent role as a heel manager to continue doing that or what he's doing behind the scenes.

It's 56 active male and female performers in WWE (not counting The Authority, the part-timers, Heyman, Lana, Flair or Zeb). Put all of that energy into them, considering you hired them to be more than what you hired Hornswoggle to be.

I'd watch it.
Absolutely. That's strictly how heel manager Hornswoggle should be portrayed. I was thinking Not Social Outcasts, but in some respects he'd be perfect for it.

Hornswoggle as a Roman's mouthpiece. He's an emperor and champion after all and every court needs its jester.
