...and on RAW at least I think they are finally starting to turn this around. If you want to have a deep roster like they had in the height of the Attitude Era and the Early/Mid 2000s WWE needs to be giving the guys they have pushed to main event runs vs Orton/Cena interesting high profile feuds OR tag team title feuds while they are out of the main event picture until they eventually rotate back in. A large part of the roster being so thin is that guys get pushes to go up against the big 2, but after their program with the big 2 are over they get "demoted" to lesser titles or feuds with midcarders that go no where and are not interesting.

One of the ways they should be doing that is utilizing older stars that are over like Hogan/Foley/Nash etc... who want to come back for a month or two to have short feuds with main event guys currently out of the rotation (e.g. Miz, Christian, Sheamus etc...) Remember Legend Killer Randy Orton vs Hulk Hogan? That buildup was great IMO. And by having them feud with each other over personal issues, create an actual storyline to the feud other then the stupid Mark Henry/Sheamus "I'm tough and you're tough so we're going to fight for no apparent reason" story. Once they have had 3-4 high profile feuds then you can give them a feud with a younger guy to move them up the roster as well or have them lead a stable of younger guys. The big thing is WWE needs to stop doing what they did to the Miz/Swagger/Ziggler and probably Alberto Del Rio next and putting in in main events/winning the title and then immediately sending him to feud with Alex Riley/Hornswoggle/Morrison(he's a jobber currently) et al.

Younger guys need to get some extra personality. Older guys need to put over the younger guys while they still have the chance. WWE has to invest in their younger guys and give them a shot. That's what I believe the problem is right now. Outside of the main events, no one really has much credibility.

One of the major problems is that every time a new so called star is made they are rushed. They never aim for the IC/US title they want the big belt straight away. So basically what that does is make them look bigger then everybody else but once they job to Cena/Orton they go into obscurity.

They are just lousy at building new talent anymore. They don't put forth the time and effort. Looking back to the Attitude Era (no, I'm not an AE mark, but this is a fine example), the entire roster seemed to be keeping busy in something interest at all times.

Val Venis got a huge reaction during his debut, just based off of the vignettes and promos they aired of him. We need more effective build ups before the debut itself.

Venis was looking legitimate in 2000 and a little bit of '01. They did a great job with the midcard back then. And some of that was because people had gimmicks and characters. Now it's hard to care for someone when they have no character, even if they're talented wrestlers.
