The talent in WWE has grown so much over the years and continues to get even better. This becomes noticeable during the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania season. Unfortunately, some very talented superstars miss out on the opportunity to showcase their abilities on a big stage. This is a testament to how much talent WWE has these days.

Recently, I wrote about three underrated members of the women's division in WWE. Going through the men's division there are a lot of wrestlers that are either underutilized or simply not used at all but should. In a tough task, I narrowed the focus down to the three underrated members of the men's division in WWE.


Ricochet is the first name that comes to mind when it comes to being underrated. He won the Intercontinental Championship and held the title for 99 days back in 2022, before losing it to Gunther. Other than that, he hasn't done much since. It seemed WWE wanted to push him into a tag team soon after that with Braun Strowman, but Strowman injured his neck and everything was halted.

Since then, RIcochet has appeared on and off on Monday Night Raw, but when he does, he always makes sure to bring his best in the ring, giving us banger matches. Most recently, he finally received a huge opportunity for a number one contender spot for the World Heavyweight Championship. He participated in a fatal four-way against Bronson Reed, Drew McIntyre, and Jey Uso. Although Ricochet did lose, he provided us with the most memorable part of the match as usual.

Not saying he will, but it would be amazing to see Ricochet participate and eventually win a Money in The Bank briefcase. The WWE Universe loves watching him every week and he has yet to win the World title in his career. He will likely win the WWE Speed Championship, but he deserves a World title opportunity. Plus, hearing his fiance' Samantha Irvin saying, "AND NEW" for her counterpart would be amazing to witness.

Chad Gable

In his WWE tenure, Chad Gable has only won tag team gold. For someone who was a Minnesota State Wrestling Champion (2004), and also had silver and gold medals, Gable hasn't matched that success in WWE in terms of accolades. He has earned the respect of the WWE Universe with his babyface turn after being a heel for so long. Many were pulling for Gable to be the one to dethrone Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 40, but WWE had other plans.

As a four-time tag team champion, Gable hopes to one day capture some singles gold. It is incredible to think that Gable has been with WWE for over 10 years and as good as he is, no singles gold to show for it. After having one of the best matches of the past year against Gunther (SLAMMY nominated), Gable is ready to take on a new journey in his career. He is ready to embark upon his first singles run in WWE. It may be defeating Sami Zayn on Monday for the Intercontinental title, or in the upcoming draft, he could be moved to create new opportunities for himself. Either way, he remains one of the most underrated superstars in all of WWE.

Karrion Kross

There were plenty of superstars in WWE NXT that could go in this final spot, but I saved it for a guy who also deserves a shot at the title. Whether it's a midcard or the heavyweight title, a revamped Kross should be in the midst of a huge push, especially now that he has his faction in The Final Testament. Since being under Paul "Triple H" Levesque's creative umbrella, Kross has brought a new finisher to go along with a more enticing character.

Once this promo aired, for the first time since his return it seemed like WWE had plans for him moving forward. For a while it seemed like there wasn't a clear plan, but maybe they were just searching for the perfect feud for him and they found it with The Final Testament and The Pride. ,

Now that Roman Reigns isn't hogging all of the gold or Gunther's title reign, things should be interesting when it comes to title reigns. There may be some shorter title reigns on the horizon. Although it would be nice to see Kross get some main-roster gold. Even if it's just a spot in the MITB ladder match, Kross deserves a push on the main roster. His social media promos have been top-notch including his in-ring work. Hopefully, it is only the beginning of us seeing The Final Testament wrecking everyone and everything.
