WWE don't always make the most of their massive roster, but the group has rarely been as rich with talent as it is today. From top to bottom, Raw, SmackDown, and NXT are all stacked with world-class wrestlers, and while the group suffers from a lack of high level star power, this is largely down to the way they've been written.

The company currently have close to 140 individuals listed as active performers. That's a lot, and Creative have unenviable task of coming up with a well-defined character for each. Unfortunately, they fail just as often as they succeed, and while some flops are inevitable on a roster of this size, the number of WWE superstars currently saddled with go-nowhere gimmicks is far too high.

These performers are crying out to be repackaged, and while switching their characters wouldn't guarantee improved fortunes, their current roles are only dragging them down. They need personas that cater to their strengths, hide their weaknesses, and allow them to build momentum. Success where their current situations have failed, in other words.

Who are these wrestlers, and how should they be repackaged? Let's take a look.
