Wrestlers that should be much bigger superstars than they are.
Held back by politics, stupidity, lack of writers' understanding and sometimes even their own devices and demons.
They're called 'underutilised talents', but every now and then the miracle occurs and you see someone bust through the parameters under which he or she works.
I've seen it happen, up close and personal.
With Steve Austin, the time he was released by WCW and was given the forum to express himself in the original ECW.
With Mick Foley, when he agreed to turn heel on the fans and cut some of the most memorable promos of this or any other generation.
And even with Brian Pillman, when he stopped settling for upper mid card and wanted to be the talk of the industry.
These are, in my opinion, the Top 5 most underutilised talents in pro wrestling today.
Let the debate begin!
NUMBER 5 - TITO ORTIZ
Why not start right off with some controversy?
I was going to mention The Briscoes from Ring of Honor, because a long-term storyline between the young, hip, edgy Briscoes and the team of Miz and Morrison would be a classic.
But The Briscoes are not underutilised in ROH, just underexposed to the masses.
Tito, however, is finishing up his UFC contract this weekend. What does he do next?
Wear out his name in MMA, or capitalize on his love for pro wrestling and exploit his larger than life personality by joining WWE or TNA?
And remember, where Tito goes, so goes Jenna Jameson, the best self-promoter in show business today.
Forget these short term deals with Pac Man Jones and Floyd Mayweather. Tito and Jenna can be long term stars who command attention, and they can bring that attention to whatever wrestling promotion is smart enough to TAP into their controversial relationship.
