The Superstar Shake Up hasn't been kind to everyone in WWE
The Superstar Shake Up hasn't been kind to everyone in WWE

All superstars aren't created equal. When the Superstar Shake Up hit the WWE, it was exciting because of the possibility of the new stars that could show up or switch brands. We were also promised that the NXT stars that had showed up since the start of 2019 would finally be assigned to a brand.

The Shake Up came and went, with the main change being AJ Styles and Roman Reigns switching brands. Many other superstars switched shows (Bayley, Ember Moon to SmackDown) while others joined a brand they had already been a part of before (the Miz, Cesaro).

Every superstar cannot be featured on TV every week, so its not surprising that some show up one week and others show up another week. The build to Money in the Bank was also going to leave some stars out, but they could have at least been featured in qualifying matches for the event.

But a handful of superstars that found homes during the Shake Up have not been featured much on the shows to which they were assigned. Nikki Cross hadn't shown up much at all until the go-home Raw before Money in the Bank.

And EC3 went from posing in front of mirrors backstage to getting driven through a table by Braun Strowman. What's the deal with the superstars that have been barely featured since WrestleMania or not featured at all? Here are a handful of superstars that have either not appeared on TV or that haven't been featured much at all after the Superstar Shake Up.

EC3 had a lot of potential when he re-joined the WWE as a member of NXT. He was given a decent push as a star to watch, but didn't win any titles. His time in NXT was short as he was among the six superstars that management called up at the end of 2018 and beginning of 2019.

The stars showed up sporadically, but EC3 had two matches and wasn't allowed to speak much. That was his main strength, and they actually let Heavy Machinery have more mic time than him.

Raw ended being the show to which he was assigned, and his lone appearance on the show was when he was chosen to face Braun Strowman. Strowman wasted little time in burying EC3 in the ruins of the announcer's table instead of facing him in a match.

It seems like a huge waste of someone that could really be rivaling someone like Sami Zayn or Kevin Owens on the mic. Instead, the guy with a million dollar body and million dollar mouth has been made to look like Monopoly money.
