4 heavily underutilized superstars on the current WWE roster
Dean Ambrose (now Jon Moxley), Tye Dillinger (Shawn Spears) and Goldust (just straight up Dustin Rhodes) are just a handful of the superstars WWE has recently lost due. With more opportunities arising elsewhere for many talented superstars, WWE is at a constant threat of losing out on more top performers - and that could seriously damage the company in the long run.
Many current superstars who were successful in NXT were called up to the main roster due to their popularity and success with the fans, but were soon forgotten about - which must have surely disheartened them.
In this article, we have compiled the list and achievements of four superstars who were destined for a brighter future but have been underutilized and forgotten on the main roster.
#4 Eric Young
As a “TNA/Impact Original”, Eric Young won 11 championships during his career in that company. To produce similar results on a much larger platform, Young decided to join WWE where he was made part of the NXT brand. After some high profile matches and the creation of the SAni†Y (or SAnitY) stable, he was an NXT Tag Team Champion.
His main roster career did take off fairly well in 2018, along with his stable, but the creatives soon ran out of ideas for them and they disappeared from television.
Eric Young was drafted to Raw during the 2019 WWE Superstar Shake-up, without his SAnitY teammates, and began his singles run on the main roster. Since then, he has just been seen as part of the 24/7 Championship drama a couple of times, and was attacked backstage by Seth Rollins (after Baron Corbin approached him to be the special guest referee for their match.)
The entire wrestling community knows what Young can do between the ropes, and it’s high time the WWE brought him back to prominence, rather than keep him on the sidelines or they could lose a very big asset to a rival company soon.
