It's not about just correcting utilizing Hornswoggle. The larger issue is that the WWE should be seeking to maximize the value of every person on the roster, and looking for ways to maximize what each individual brings to the table. Especially when injuries continuously thin out the roster. I used Hornswoggle as an example as someone that the WWE keeps on the payroll but has kept off air for almost a year and a half. 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.

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.
Unless they want to cut bait on a number of wrestlers, they should be having this examination with every person on the roster. Whether it's Damien Sandow and David Otunga to Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns.
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.
