As for Bourne, I agree, he is <i>usually<i/> underutilized. The good news? Paul Levesque is in charge now! Since Hunter was the one who requested to bring Bourne over from ECW because he claimed that "athletes like him are the future of the company" I think there is a good chance that Bourne will get another good push once he is healthy again.
