So I believe it's been a week since my last blog, I'm sorry about that, lot of problems, bad bad week, bad break up, I'll stop right there, I think I already made almost everyone think I'm an attention whore.
Anyway, if you've been following my blogs, you know the rules, two talents per episode. Our talents of the day are...
WWE's own Evan Bourne :
Now this will be a controversial pick, a lot will say "So you want Bourne as WWE Champ ? Nobody will believe he can, he's too small"
Or at least that's the kind of stuff I heard from a few youtubers, anyway, underused does not equal needs to be the WWE/WHC Champion.
Evan Bourne is a classic example of why WWE needs the cruiserweight division back, he's very talented both in the ring and in the air, if you want any proof of what he's able of just watch this match :
Evan Bourne like many other superstars, can't reach his top in WWE, simply he won't be a believable champ, this is sad but true in my opinion, I myself wouldn't believe Bourne beat the likes of Batista & Cena, it's just not believable, therefore, for Evan Bourne to finally shine, WWE needs to bring back the cruiserweight division, now don't tell me "They don't have enough to start a division" Barretta, Bourne, Mysterio, Kidd, Chavo (If he accepts to go back), Gabriel, Slater & many more also the WWE can sign even more cruiserweights and from what I remember, cruiserweights like the X-Division stars are always the highlights of the night. Be it WWE, WCW or TNA.
And TNA's own : Eric Young
This in my view is a simple case of bad gimmick & writing.
EY has been the victim of funny gimmicks and bad writing as many other wrestlers have, having done "funny" gimmicks (or corny ones if you prefer to call it so) really has ruined any chance he had at success, when people think of EY they will most likely think of the "Super Eric" gimmick, or the Team Canada afraid guy gimmick.
I am a huge fan of the man, I think he really has all it takes to succeed, I thought his push with the World Elite faction was gonna be his breakthrough point and I was sadly sadly disappointed as they stayed in the shadow of the MEM and the flashes of brilliance the World Elite faction had were quite few and eventually TNA did with World Elite what they always do with storylines, they let it fade into the non existence and brought back the corny crazy EY gimmick.
As funny as it may be I am quite disappointed about this because in World Elite he looked to me as a very solid heel and I hope EY gets his chance one day.
So that's it for today, hope you enjoyed the read
Please do leave your comments and suggestions about Superstars to be used in the next episode.
And also due to the number of people who asked for Tyler Reks, he could be the next WWE Underused Talent I discuss
Thanks for your time
