My guess was due to limited TV time and wanting to emphasise the Mistico/Hunico feud

Still it's stupid to make him look like a bitch. He's the best seller in the WWE next to Ziggler

Because WWE views anybody who's not currently in a storyline as a tackling dummy who gets used solely to make the guy in one look better. They did the same thing a few weeks ago with Alberto Del Rio and John Morrison. Despite WWE's recent punishing of Morrison, it's not indicative solely of that. They also did it for Del Rio to assert his dominance after a WWE title loss by beating a guy with some half decent accomplishments (LOL) to his name.

I don't blame them when it comes to Heath Slater. He might sell well but he's a bottom of the barrel personality.

This same thing happened to Bryan although he was made to look better but he was still a pawn in the sin cara vs sin cara feud

Yes, he is a jobber, but Cara should not be made to look that good. Squash matches are kinda stupid, unless it's a monster vs under 80kg person, or something like that. There should be more competition.

Why Heath Slater was squashed is easy to understand and accept, the guy sucks and really isn't good for anything outside his selling.

That he was squashed in 45 seconds on the other hand, is pretty much in no way justifiable (though understandable if you beleive the bookers are morons). The entire point of squash matches is to be a platform for the guy winning, a platform to demonstrate his moves and how he carries himself in the ring. It does the guy nothing for him to squash a jobber in such a short amount of time before he can really do anything. Why have the match if there wouldn't be any time actually given to it?

He is hated by a few people, and he is not included in a really big story line. Plus, he doesn't have much of a character, may as well job him until he get's into anything good.

This.

With Squash matches, the superstar/wrestler should use most moves in their arsenal to defeat the opponent.

Because he is a jobber. I knew it from the day the Corre split up, he would become a good jobber. And it's about time the WWE have a full time jobber...

Probably just paying his dues, he has his chances to impress during house shows and such. When hes just squashing on tv and not getting any house show opportunities, thats when you worry!
