Heath Slater picks up first win of the year versus Adam Rose

Heath Slater has finally picked up his first pinfall victory of the year at the expense of Adam Rose at last night's live event at the Nassau Coliseum. 

Long time coming

It has taken Slater six months to get his first win of 2015 and he had amassed 44 losses so far this year, currently the worst in the company. 

Lately both Rose and Slater have become a part of discussions that would see them both heading to NXT, the place where Adam Rose originally came from. Many think Rose could be reverting back to his old Leo Kruger character after the Rose character sizzled out. 

Rose has had no direction on the main roster since he turned on his Rosebuds, and WWE didn't even finish the Bunny storyline to give Rose a storyline to adhere to. Instead Rose was back on NXT for their Wednesday Night show this week in his new pirate type attire as he took on Tyler Breeze. 

Slater is pretty much in the same position as Rose as he has been used as a jobber since 3MB split up and Drew Macintyre and Jinder Mahal were released from the company. Slater did look like he could have been going after the United States Championship for a time, but it ended up being a way to fill time and add some comedy to the open challenge. 

Best of a bad bunch

Adam Rose's record is a little better that Slater's as he is 5-56 so far this year, but it isn't a great record either.

Other superstars with bad records include Bo Dallas who is currently 3-39. This one at least makes a lot of sense given the fact that he has hardly been on TV over the past few months so he was used at house shows to put other superstars over before he entered a rivalry with Neville. Even though he looked like he could be the one to get the win over The New Sensation it ended up being another loss for the Inspirational Superstar. 

Cameron makes up the list as her record stands at 2-35. Since she headed back to NXT and continued the training she was never given before her WWE debut, the former Funkadactyl has improved vastly in the ring. The problem is that up on the main roster there is no room for divas who do not possess the full package. 

Diva struggles

The women of NXT have revolutionised wrestling and now the main roster know that they have competition.

Whilst the likes of Nikki Bella, Paige and Naomi are currently running the show for WWE, Cameron isn't yet on par with her former tag partner and I think WWE are currently giving her matches to give her experience and to allow her to further improve. 

These four superstars seem to be the stand out ones with bad records at the moment, but there always needs to be jobbers in WWE because there will always be a talent to put over.

All four superstars could have bright futures if the WWE creative team turn it around, but at the same time it does make bad reading for all of them given that they have already had their 15 minutes of fame on the main roster.
