We all have opinions about the quality of the shows. I gather a large part of that comes from us not liking how certain favored wrestlers of ours are "misused."

Well, here's your chance to complain constructively.

Who do you feel is being misused the most, based on the talents you see them having? I'll start it off:

I have no real complaint here. I'd like to see Tajiri or Rhyno used better, but they don't deserve a higher spot on RAW right now. There's not enough room for them on TV.

WWE Smackdown
Paul London. I would rather he take Spanky's lead and go to a company where his athleticism is appreciated. But I'm sure he's making good money right now, and one positive is that he's less likely to get permanently injured if he's not being used a whole lot or being given longer matches. Once he's paid his dues, I hope to see him promoted up the line - but it looks fairly dim.

Jonny Fairplay. What was the point of bringing him into the company if he's not being featured? Apparently, he has a bodyguard now, so maybe this is an excuse for him to ease into becoming a regular TNA manager. Given enough opportunity, I think he could be a real asset to TNA wrestling. Everyone else seems to be in the right role. Guys like Christopher Daniels and Chris Harris aren't getting over enough with the TNA crowd for anyone to buy them being regular main eventers, so I cannot complain about their status.

This is a very well run company, as far as booking goes. I love most of the angles - especially the new stable Generation Next and the growing feud between Ricky Steamboat and CM Punk. Punk is so over that he doesn't need a championship - even if he's currently a tag champion. I want to see good things happen for 'American Dragon' Bryan Danielson, and it looks as if he's getting another shot at climbing up the ROH mountain. I saw a Velocity or Heat match of his a year or so ago. He'd be an awesome guy to watch wrestle in WWE every week. He looks bland, but once he starts wrestling, there's no need for any superstar looks - his wrestling alone puts him over.

My thoughts...

WWE Raw:
I think there's more they could do with Gregory Helms, as long as they get him away from Rosy and end the Hurricane was cute for awhile, but it's run its course. I'm baffled as to why they seemed to be pushing Tajiri so hard when he arrived in RAW after the lottery, then he seemingly disappeared off the face of the planet. Even though it sounds silly considering he's the champion, I feel like they could be doing more with Benoit. It just seems like he's in the background rather than the foreground of RAW's major storylines.

WWE Smackdown:
I felt that they pulled the trigger on the Rico/Haas reign well before they needed to. I felt like they were starting to gel as a team, and don't see what putting the titles on the Dudleyz does for the division. Also, Haas is one of the few newer guys brought in from OVW who's actually a decent worker. In addition to Paul London, I think there's a handful of other cruiserweights that could be used to make an exciting division, even though I won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

In regards to Jonny Fairplay, I can't say I was all that impressed with his mic work when he came in. You have to remember that TNA expected a big media blitz when he came in, which didn't happen. There was no buyrate pop and very little coverage from the mainstream media. Disregarding his exposure on Survivor (which we've seen doesn't really do him any good in TNA), I can't see him as being really all that more beneficial than any other potential manager. TNA seems to push a different tag team or individual every week, so it's hard to say who seems to be left out in terms of exposure. I give them credit for wanting to give everyone their fifteen minutes, but some consistency would also be good. I also didn't like the way they hotshotted the title in the weeks leading up to the debut of Impact, but that doesn't really apply here so I won't go too much into that.

Can't say much about ROH, since I haven't seen enough of the product to make an accurate assessment of the use of their talent.

How shall I put this....I know enough to know that this thread is potentially a really, really bad idea and I don't want any part of it on the board.
