Rusev deserves a chance to showcase his talent.

Five superstars that need a chance to shine during WWE's injury crisis

Published 1 Comments

The WWE currently have a number of top superstars out of action due to injury which could see them miss WrestleMania 32 in Dallas, Texas.

The likes of Seth Rollins, Cesaro and Randy Orton will most likely be absent from WrestleMania while it’s unclear whether Daniel Bryan or Sting will even compete inside of a WWE ring again.

With some big names looking to miss out on a special night, the WWE will need to do whatever they can with their current crop of talent to make sure they play a big part in the coming months. The talent is clearly there, and if the WWE don’t capitalise on their abilities then big shows – such as WrestleMania – could be affected.

Here are the superstars I believe should be given a chance to show what they can do in the current situation, and perhaps they may impress enough to break through to the real main event picture.


Fans may slowly be giving up on a Dolph Ziggler push because it’s always been a case of ‘what if’ or ‘when will it finally happen?’ with the show-off.

He’s had certain opportunities in the past to try and get over with the WWE Universe and he did what he could with the faith the company had in him. He has all the talent in the world to fill any void left by an injury-hit superstar and really make another push towards the top.

He’s still over with the majority of the WWE Universe, but he hasn’t been involved in a feud which could see him be a major star in 2016. There are some big names available on the roster for Ziggler who could help him to be a big star again while a heel turn should also be taken into account.


Neville is someone who probably won’t get a rocket-like push simply because the company may think he’s too small to be a huge part of the main event scene.

That’s obviously a shame because Neville is one of the more solid performers in the WWE, you can put him up against anybody in the WWE whether it’s an up-and-coming NXT star or a bonafide main event player, Neville will go out and steal the show.

The WWE does need a top high-flier to make a real impact and they have a couple who could really go on to impress if they’re given an opportunity to shine. They need to put some more faith in Neville, rather than have him float around doing nothing.


I still don’t understand why Rusev hasn’t been given the chance to show what he can really do because he does have all the tools to eventually go all the way.

It’s clear he never really recovered from his losses to John Cena and his momentum did take a hit slightly, and his feud with Ziggler wasn’t exactly something that would elevate him to the main event picture. Rusev is a monster heel, though, he has a great look and a great move-set to match that.

We know he can be a good champion and he can even talk on the microphone with a good balance of comedy and seriousness. He’s a huge asset to have right now because with heels not able to compete through injuries, Rusev is somebody who can step up to the mark and solidify himself as a top heel in the company.


Talking of having a top heel in the company, Kevin Owens should probably be the go-to guy when it comes to being the biggest heel in the company.

Fans can say what they want about his look and how he doesn’t look like somebody who can play a huge part in the company moving forward, but the fact is Owens is better than the majority of the roster when it comes to in-ring work and on the microphone, he has all the tools a heel needs to go over.

I still think the WWE will give him a chance to shine in the coming months because he’s too good to pass up on. If he continues to impress like he is doing then it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Owens being a top star by the time WrestleMania 32 rolls around.


This was an obvious name that was going to pop up and rightfully so, Ambrose is another star who has all the tools to succeed the highest level.

He’s definitely lost a lot of steam, however, as he isn’t really getting involved in any notable feud which can actually help him become a top star regardless of all the talent he is. That doesn’t mean the WWE should give up on him, though, they should put faith in him so he can actually have some backing by the company to give him the confidence to succeed.

With so many stars out the WWE do need to allow guys like Ambrose to step up and show what they are capable of, rather than forcing the same superstars down our throats every single week.
