True Underutilized Talent in: The WWE

The way I'm determining Underutilized talent in this post, is if I believe the superstar isn't being used properly, and to their full potential.
Drew is an extremely underutilized talent. Drew was brought in as the chosen one and almost immediately won the Intercontinental Championship in a good match against John Morrison. Drew held the title for 5 months before dropping it to Kofi Kingston and a good outing. His reign was fairly entertaining but he didn't have many fueds. Drew was okay for a while but after being drafted to RAW he's been jobbing every match. Even when not jobbing he only gets in small bits of offense.
Kofi is doing okay at the moment, but he could be a bigger star than he is. Kofi is "the Ultimate Midcarder" When the WWE needs to freshen things up with a Midcard Title reign, he's their guy. Kofi almost always gives an exciting match, even though he isn't the most compelling on the microphone.
Swagger's career shortly after losing the World Heavyweight Championship was horrid. Swagger lost nearly every match, and was just continually falling down the ladder. Then, near Wrestlemania 27 he began coaching Michael Cole, Swagger should've been used properly then, either getting huge heat with Cole as a manager, or by turning face by beating down Cole. Swagger then had a mini-feud with Evan Bourne and lost almost every match, since ZigSwag has started, he's getting his shine back, but he still has enormous star potential and is a great technical wrestler.
Do I need to explain?
My god WWE are you really as stupid as you try to be? Barrett was RED hot when he joined the RAW roster, he had great mic skills, and put him some really good matches even though he was a rookie, Barrett proved he could main event PPV's by wrestling John Cena, and Randy Orton in the main events of two consecutive PPV's. Barrett lost the leadership of Nexus to CM Punk and basically his career died. He had an IC title run, he lost it to Big Zeke, lost some more, beat Daniel Bryan repetitively and then gained wins on other Superstars and he looks to be making a comeback, I hope Wade becomes a Main Eventer very soon, because he's the most Underutilized talent in the WWE.
