Ok what is going on with the main roster?

This is pretty much old news and random rant to many but I needed to get this off my chest.

I have not been watching SD for weeks except for the NXT invasion angle because I assume it would be better without the "top guys" , AND IT WAS

I feel like I'm watching the same episode over and over , Nakamura pretty much does basically nothing with the IC belt when there are like hundreds of talents who could help elevating it with loads of angles , instead we have multi men tag team matches literally every fucking week.

We havent seen Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas ( not counting that 24/7 stuff)on Live Tv in like months ? Years ? When they finally get featured , its during that Braun/Fury segment to implicitely cement / portray the WWE talents as geeks


RAW has AJ Styles as US champion and instead of having him in programs to elevate the titles they have him do those same multi men tag matches, come on I used to love those back in the late 2000's because it was not that redundant , now it feels like the cards are hogged by the same 10 to 15 wrestlers when there is like 200 employees out there


Even minor shows like Main Event only has like 2 matches with literally always the same faces ( Hawkins and Ryder vs Eric Young and Random Partner)

I get that they are trying to get mainsteam audience by involving boxers and mma fighters but it doesnt mean that the midcard should be nonexistent

Even if you dont push everyone , give your talents some air time , you have talents like Akira Tozawa , Peyton Royce , Liv Morgan , Sarah Logan , Apollo , Harper , EC3 , Mansoor , Cesaro, Ember Moon , Drew Gulak, Brian Kendrick , Shelton Benjamin , Miz , Zack Ryder, Heath Slater , Matt Hardy etc who are all skilled entertainers and /or performers without exception and fans are not even sure whether they still work here or not ffs

Re: Ok what is going on with the main roster ?

You're right but why on earth are you complaining about Bo Dallas and axel and using them as an example of the roster being geeks?

These two clowns don't represent the roster. They are there specifically for comedic relief and to be murdered. Insulting that you would compare good talent with them

Re: Ok what is going on with the main roster ?

Its a massive problem. 95% of the roster is completely irrelevant, you could replace 95% of the roster with a cardboard cutout of them and it wouldn't matter, thats how irrelevant most of them are.

Its just the same people and the same matches over and over again.

Nakamura is doing less than nothing as IC Champ. He's been a garbage IC Champ (not his fault) so why not just put the belt on The Miz? Gives Miz something to do. Puts the IC Title on someone who actually puts in some effort and is passionate about it.

Why just continually send the same few people out there endlessly doing the same matches when there could be so much variety?

Their role in the company has nothing to do with their talent though. They're good talents

Yes good for comedy. And there's nothing wrong with that. They aren't good enough to be any higher.

I don't get why there's a complaint about them being killed.

If Rollins can be FOTC then there's no such thing as not being good enough to be higher anymore.

Re: Ok what is going on with the main roster ?

Honestly, it would be great if WWE focused more on their current talents rather than relying on old legends, part-timers, and MMA guys. There's plenty of good talents on the main roster who are being under-utilized atm.

Nah, Seth Rollins is good enough to be a top guy.

Are you having trouble having access to my older rating threads? Did you forget to vote for one of the currently rated talents? Click on the link below, search through my RTC threads, and bump up any of my old rating threads so you can still get your votes counted in

Seth was built up. Right now I wouldn't buy either one of them beating miz clean. But that's not the point.

Wrestling is a tier system. These two are lower tier. Their booking is not representative of the overall booking of the midcard, upper midcard or main event.

So saying two lower tier losers getting murdered means the WWE think their whole roster are geeks doesn't make sense.

If it was nakamura in that spot then it would make sense.

I'm not arguing ops overall point. I'm arguing two jobbers being killed being a bad thing.

Re: Ok what is going on with the main roster?

Bo Dallas is still one of the top 3 NXT Champs. The dude oozes talent, yet WWE has him doing.. that. Axel is a good talent, but lacks charisma. He could be used better too.

Like OP said, everyone can be better. WWE just sucks at utilising them.

Feels like AJ has been feuding with 205 for the entirety of the year

Basically the same issue it's always been, More coasting along than being productive.

AJ is carrying two uninteresting guys to relevance but also seemingly holding himself back, He's better off with different stable mates or running solo.

Nakamura should be in a feud with Bryan by now not playing prospect with Sami as a hype tool to get Bryan to align with them.

Plenty of better options has always been the case here but coasting seems to be the 'In' thing these days.
