Rebuilding the midcard impacts the entire WWE roster


In many ways, the midcard of a wrestling roster is just as important as the top of the group. WWE has long neglected the belts that make up its midcard and that’s hurt the organization for years. Triple H is making an effort to rebuild the Intercontinental and United States Championships, its working, and the ramifications will have a long-term and positive impact on the WWE.

In the past weeks since Triple H has taken over creative the push to build both titles is on. SmackDown and Monday Night Raw highlighted the history of each title, reminding fans that some of the greatest competitors ever have battled for these belts. Then, each title was featured in big matches. Ciampa challenged Bobby Lashley for the United States title, while Shinsuke Nakamura and Gunther fought on SmackDown for the Intercontinental Championship.

In two weeks, there’s been more done for those championships in two years. Gunther and Lashley are two credible champions, two men that can become central players in the main event picture. But until that space is open for them, featuring them as important champions with credible challengers helps everyone involved. Ciampa and Nakamura looked like the threats that they should be seen as, one step below two individuals that could go toe-to-toe with Roman Reigns.

Rebuilding the midcard is going to help several men on both the Raw and SmackDown rosters. Individuals like Ricochet, Chad Gable, Mustafa Ali, and Madcap Moss can all find themselves inserted into the picture to get the opportunity to highlight what makes them vital members of the WWE Universe. Even if they don’t win the big matches, this move gives them the opening to show more of their in-ring talent which is exactly what wrestling fans have long called to see.

Rebuilding the midcard will lead to massive things for the WWE roster. Hopefully, both Gunther and Bobby Lashley enter the main event scene on their respective shows, while creating the space for two other names to take over the “workers” title and shine for the wrestling world to see. This is how the future not only WWE but wrestling as a whole is built.
