WWE is a hierarchical company; it has a large mid-card scene, which has prevented many stars from reaching the main event scene. This has led to repetitive main-event feuds and storylines, while those stuck in the middle of the card are often thrown together in random storylines without reaching that elite circle. As Vince McMahon once said, ‘no one since Cena has grabbed the brass rings’ (which is a highly contentious statement in itself).
The truth is that WWE Superstars have a lot of skills, some in more areas than one. While few of them are perfectly well-rounded, many of them possess a lot of potential to be big stars, but are struggling to get over with the audience because of difficult creative decisions or a lack thereof. How good are they? This list will answer that by determining who’s the best and where WWE Superstars rank in relation to one another.
This article will rank WWE’s entire active roster based on a combination of positive and negative factors from each wrestler’s storyline and real-life attributes. Each wrestler will be given 3 positive attributes and three negative attributes (if applicable), and afterwards they will be given a score between * and *****, with the lower-scoring wrestlers coming first.
So where did your favorite wrestlers rank in relation to their peers?
53. Eva Marie
1. Very attractive
2. Is working hard to improve on her in-ring skill
3. Is good at promoting WWE in outside ventures
1. Has VERY little experience in, or understanding of, professional wrestling
2. Cannot cut a promo very well
3. Is vilified for being the walking example of hiring models for a wrestling promotion
Eva Marie has been condemned by many wrestling fans for being just another pretty face who thinks that she can learn how to wrestle in a few months and be a big star. As veterans like Natalya and Paige can tell you, such is not the case.
Eva Marie has spent the majority of her WWE career on Total Divas, with a few sporadic appearances on RAW and SmackDown. During her earlier matches, she did not even know how to sell properly, and would get up almost instantly after taking a wrestling move. As for her promo skills, she speaks with such deadpan seriousness that you can’t tell when she’s actually trying to be fired up. Maybe she’s just nervous, but she’s demonstrating that she doesn’t have enough know-how to work a proper match on RAW.
She’s 27, so there’s a lot of time for her to improve on her in-ring work if she wants to. She's currently of-screen, working with Brian Kendrick to improve her abilities. Even with someone as good as Kendrick, she has a long way to go.
Final Rating: 3/4*
