That WWE don't make the most of their outrageously talented, outrageously deep roster is a criticism repeated so often it is on the verge of becoming cliché, yet it is almost always valid.
This company has hundreds of contracted wrestlers, yet only a handful are legitimate stars. The likes of Shinsuke Nakamura, Asuka, and Braun Strowman have had their auras shattered by overexposure and middling in-ring records. Remember Sanity? Neither do the writers.
Fortunately, 2019 has brought considerable improvement in how WWE present their wrestlers.
