#4 Baron Corbin

The Lone Wolf hasn't been seen in three weeks.

Granted, Baron Corbin is one of the least-liked Superstars on the WWE roster today, but that doesn't take anything away from who he has evolved into. Corbin is arguably the top heel in WWE right now and has racked up quite an impressive resume. The Lone Wolf has had a tremendous year thus far. He defeated Kurt Angle in the latter's final match at WrestleMania 35 and had a lengthy Universal Championship feud with Seth Rollins.

Like it or not, you can't deny the fact that Corbin has become a mainstay in the upper mid-card in WWE. Hence, it comes as a bit of a shocker that Corbin will probably sit out of this year's SummerSlam event. Corbin was last seen on the Raw after Extreme Rules three weeks ago. The former US Champion has no ongoing story-line on WWE television and has been missing from WWE's weekly shows.

#3 Shinsuke Nakamura

The King of Strong Style Shinsuke Nakamura finally relived his previous days of glory a month ago at Extreme Rules, where he won the Intercontinental Championship from Finn Balor. Nakamura has been steadily gaining some momentum, defeating the likes of Ali and Apollo Crews recently. Ali was rumored to challenge Nakamura at SummerSlam after he pinned the IC Champion a few weeks ago, but that doesn't seem to be the case as WWE doesn't have an IC Championship match lined up for SummerSlam.

Honestly speaking, Nakamura and the Intercontinental Championship's bizarre exclusion from SummerSlam is absolutely underwhelming. WWE isn't doing justice to the IC Championship and its titleholder. SummerSlam is proof of how poorly WWE is treating the Intercontinental Championship.

Many fans would agree that a star of Nakamura's caliber should have a match at SummerSlam. Moreover, the Intercontinental Championship has been devalued by this incidence, which is just a shame.
