|This is a good thread because it made me realize something:|
I went and looked at both rosters and could find NO ONE I thought was underpushed! I guess this really is a great year for wrestling. For the first time in a long time, I really like the way things are.

How is Batista "overpushed"? Yeah, he's a member of Evolution, but whenever an Evolution member takes a pin, it's invariably Batista. He's a 2-time tag title winner, but that was only because: 1st time) they wanted Evo to have all the belts, and 2nd time) RVD & Booker were being sent to SD. And, for what it's worth, Batista is at least the equal of Orton on the mic (personally, I'd say he's a bit better than Orton).
Maybe "overpushed" is a bad choice of words on my part. Maybe "already getting pushed, thus is disqualified for being underpushed." I really just don't care for Batista. He's got the look, yeah, but I think he's a boring wrestler, charisma-less in the ring, and I've never heard him talk so I can't comment on that one. The only great match I've seen him in was the one at Wrestlemania XX, but that was all Flair and Rock.
I'm gonna be an ELF!

|Hey, I got my wish, sort of. Lance Storm was on RAW tonight, and....|
It's official! Lance is now the most under-pushed talent on the roster. Remember how on the sitcom The Facts of Life all the girls eventually got fatter than the girl who was cast as the fat girl? That same cruel irony played itself out tonight when one of the most boring workers in WWE went over the guy who's gimmick is to be boring. I can see them wanting to get Rhyno over as a monster now that he's on RAW, but did they have to feed Lance to him? Poor Lance. Poor poor Lance. He comes out, gets started on a character-changing promo, and is completely squashed. And for a squash, Lance's workrate was about six times better than the guy who squashed him. Oh, poor Lance!
I try to weigh the pros and cons though:
1) PRO: Lance gets to be on RAW for a change.
2) PRO: Looks like Lance is turning heel.
3) CON: Lance gets fed to Rhyno in a squash.
Somehow, I don't think the two pros out-weigh the one con.
Oh, poor, poor, poor Lance!
Lance, I weep for you.
So sayeth Randy Stilton, the real Stinky Cheese Man!

|Where the heck is Tommy Dreamer. I liked that guy. I was thinking they should bring back the Hardcore title and give it to him. I know what your thinking not another belt but it's just a gimmmick belt and at least for me I could look forward to a good old fashioned hardcore match each week instead of a Mark Henry match.|

|Dreamer's back is meeeeeesssssssed up. Making him wrestle every week would just be asking for trouble.|
Besides, Raw doesn't need "hardcore" matches, much less a belt & division.

|And, let's not forget, before his injury, Mark Henry was on a tear of really solid big man work.|
I'd agree with the Matt Hardy being underpushed idea, but there's been some smoke in terms of rumors and bluster about him being more dedicated to his girlfriend than to the wrestling life. Who knows where he'll be in a year is a question WWE probably asks themselves, and you can't invest a major push in someone you can't be sure of, barring injury, being there to bring a return on their investment. I like Matt as much as the next guy, but there's probably more than meets the eye with his current situation.
As for who I think is being underpushed? Up until recently I would have said the horribly mismanaged cruiserweight division, but the Chavo/Rey feud seems to be getting legs. Right now, I can't think of anyone I'd like to see a lot more of in WWE than I do now.

Matt Striker making a Morrissey reference just one week after "coming out" strongly against gay marriage leads me to believe that might have just been him heeling it up.
