15 WWE Superstars That Can Save Their Careers With The Brand Extension

The news of a brand split shook up the entire wrestling industry and we aren’t even sure how it’s going down yet. SmackDown going live is one of the facets we are aware of and with that comes a brand split. Both SmackDown and RAW will have exclusive rosters similar to the 2002 brand split. The two shows will see a draft in July that will change the structure of the WWE. They tried splitting the rosters in the past but ended up having to quit on the idea due to SmackDown being treated as completely inferior to RAW in just about every aspect.

WWE wants things to be different this time around by doing right by the creative idea of a brand split. The negative to this is we will only be able to see our favorite wrestlers on one show per week rather than both. The ability to see specific dream matches also won’t happen unless there’s a roster change, but that may add to the intrigue. One specific positive is it will give more wrestlers a chance to be utilized on television once again. The prior structure of the same stars appearing on both RAW and SmackDown only allowed so many wrestlers to get television time.

Many of the performers set to the side by WWE management and forgotten by fans will have a chance to become a relevant member of the company once again. The amount of talent needed on television each week will be doubled and that is going to give opportunity to many wrestlers in need of it. This could have a potential career changing impact to quite a few wrestlers in need of it. A good number of talents are celebrating the news in the WWE locker room and we’ll look at them here. These are the top fifteen wrestlers that can see their careers saved with the brand extension.

1 Alberto Del Rio

WWE signed Alberto Del Rio to a high paying contract towards the end of 2015, but his impact on the roster has been non-existent. Del Rio is now the most forgettable former World Champion on WWE’s roster, apart from Jack Swagger. WWE does desperately need a big Latino star to appeal to the demographic and Del Rio was meant to do so with the signing. A big push could come Del Rio’s way with two rosters opening the doors for more talent getting pushes in the main event picture. Vince McMahon clearly believes in the ability of Del Rio as seen with his various title reigns through the years and the brand split can see him go from irrelevant to a main eventer. You have to believe this is the last opportunity to make Del Rio relevant again.
