There are many names that came up in Kevin Owens' "pipe bomb" promo that are rarely on TV. Now arguably, you could make a case for any Superstar that could be given more TV time, but I'm only interested in Superstars that would add more value to the TV product on either Raw or SmackDown Live.

The Superstars suggested could be used to begin an epic feud, entertain the crowd with awesome promos or just simply put on great matches. Some of these superstars are on TV already but could be used in a larger role, while others are hardly seen at all.

Becky Lynch is a fine example of someone who is given some more TV time and she became a huge star. Seth Rollins is massively over and Superstars like The Miz, Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles and Samoa Joe do really well, as they get TV time.

WWE has done great things by giving Aleister Black, Ricochet, R-Truth and Drake Maverick TV time recently and they are all doing great things in their own way. Drew McIntyre is getting over and Lashley has exactly the right amount time each week.

Each Superstar on this list has a range of reasons why they should be featured more on WWE TV. It is not necessarily about the main event, as not everyone is destined for that. WWE usually puts on great main events, but at times the mid-card of Raw or SmackDown Live can require an energy injection. I believe these Superstars have a lot more value to add on WWE programming.

Finn Balor

This guy is fantastic. Finn would benefit from more promo time to get his message across. He is obviously a great wrestler. The ordinary man capable of extra-ordinary things is a great description. He could also develop the demon side of his character more. It can appear like anytime he is not winning a feud, he puts on the demon paint and wins a match. No explanation whatsoever. He is about to begin a feud with Shinsuke Nakamura which on paper is mouth-watering. I hope this feud plays a major role on TV, as it could be one of the stand out feuds of the year.

He could also reunite with The Club when it is time for them to turn face. It's been a while since we had a great faction again in WWE. The Shield were great a few years ago but they are all but done and dusted. Finn brings in the cool guy factor and if the current club is built right then he could make it awesome. This could lead to a World Title feud against AJ Styles that could make him the focal point of Raw or SmackDown Live!
