Creative Has Nothing For You: 15 WWE Wrestlers Stuck In A Rut

The current WWE roster is probably the most talented one in years, as the company seems to have snatched up all the top wrestlers from around the globe in their own basket. From signing sensations from Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling, the company’s main roster is packed with so many world class athletes that even the writers themselves cannot decide on whom to push and whom to bury. The Brand of WWE has become so lucrative for these wrestlers that they cannot help but get seduced by the company’s call, as over the past few years we’ve seen so many wrestlers join the company.

The thing is, this is hampering the progress and situation for some of the older guards as well as other guys who worked their way to the top over the years as they have been left to rot in a corner by the WWE. Because of the acquisition of superstars who seem to fill all the levels of the roster, some of these wrestlers who’ve been in the company for many years seem to be sidelined into irrelevancy. Because of the limited time slot and so many storylines already in the hands of creative, they seem to pay no heed to these washed away athletes who can’t help but obey whatever is commanded by Vince.

What creative does do for these superstars is put them in fringe shows like WWE Superstars or Main Event to job to emerging mid-carders, as they only have these irrelevant shows to give signs of improvement in hopes to get a push into at least appearing on WWE TV. Some of these superstars who do appear on WWE TV on a weekly basis are stuck in such a difficult predicament, having to wrestle the same superstar every week or doing the same exact thing every week which hampers the uniqueness of the superstar. Let’s take a look at 15 Superstars in WWE who are stuck in a rut right now.

Jack Swagger’s fall from grace in the past few years is depressing, as someone who was being touted as the next Kurt Angle is now a definitive jobber in the WWE. Swagger’s WWE career started with a bang, as he won the ECW Title followed by Money in the Bank and the World Heavyweight Title in a matter of 3 years, but things fell horribly for him. He was first managed by Vickie Guerrero with Dolph Ziggler and then by Zeb Colter who formed “The Real Americans” with Swagger and Cesaro. This got him somewhat over with fans, before they were disbanded and Swagger was continuously put against the anti-American Rusev in an America vs its Enemy match which has been recycled so many times over the past few years. Swagger mostly spends his time competing in fringe shows like Superstars and Main Event, where he loses to emerging mid-carders and recently feuded with Alberto Del Rio and Zeb Colter in an America vs Mexico type of a feud(which he lost). He makes sporadic appearance as the “The Real American” trying to fight for his country but failing every time, as the talented and trained wrestler deserved much more than what creative has served him over the past few years.
