Wrestleshow did something to offend the wrestling gods. In the first draft, the show was loaded with stars and main event level talent. This draft and subsequent developments has seen the talent pool not just get thinner but to the casual fan it appears to be all dried up.
Hopper, Sektor and on the surface, LFB are all gone. Other talent has been picked up by Victory and all that's left at this point is a few names and a lot of question marks. Victory's first draft was about talent towards the future. This Wrestleshow draft is about finding the next star to step up and break through.
Wrestleshow may have to lean on established star power for the time being and will need to find someone to step up and fill the currently vacant role of hero quickly.
Kendrix. B+. Would grade out higher as he won his feud and retired Chris Hopper. This proves he can play on a main event level. The forgotten man in what was left of Dynasty. Kendrix needs to make some headway towards a championship or risk getting lost in the upper mid card.
Cecilworth Farthington. B - The ruler of the land of UTAH. He seems to be content behind a desk running the show. Lost in the laughter is a potential star. If he gets back in the ring and develops an aggressive side, he could make more of an impact for Wrestleshow than he does behind a desk.
Luke Dibbins. B. The UTA Hardcore champion has already gone farther than anyone was reasonably expecting. Extremely entertaining promos and under rated skills in the ring says that if he gets serious he could make an impact.
Duke Dibbins C. In every tag team there is a singles star that emerges. Duke is in serious danger of being the forgotten member. He's just as good as his brother but does he want more?
Sean Jackson. A - Sean's grade slipped a little. He's still one of the best but seemed to be spread a little too thin. He's beaten Jason Cashe and needs to move on from this and avoid getting tied down in a senseless feud. World title #3 needs to be the top item on his to do list.
Scott Stevens C. This was nearly an incomplete. Scott has been off camera for a good while and is in danger of becoming an afterthought.
Ron Hall C - Hall seemed to be content to flounder on Victory and that feud with someone named Wingate hasn't materialized yet. Had a decent showing in the ladder match at I.A, but why would a Hall of Famer be ok with a secondary title. The world is waiting for Ron to get serious and recommit himself. If he does, a rebirth and a breakthrough to being a major player isn't out of the question. If not, he needs to go back to retirement.
Sabrina Baker C - There seems to be nothing about her that catches your attention in or out of the ring. Still looking to find and establish herself on the Wrestleshow roster. Hopefully something happens and she stands out on her own and not draw comparisons to others.
Quinlan D+. Multiple identities, multiple looks and name changes. Same frustrating results in the ring. Did he squander his chance to become a player in his feud that fizzled out with Brother Judas? How many more chances can he be expected to get?
CBR A. The Canadian Star's road to redemption came full circle when he ended John Sektor's Legacy title reign at International Affair. One of the finest all around wrestlers in the UTA today and a bit under rated on the mic. The only thing holding his grade down here is the fact he seems to be in a comfort zone with the Legacy championship. CBR, UTA World Champion has a nice ring to it.
Zhalia Fears. C+. Has been off TV for most of this grading period due to injuries sustained in her feud with Crimson Lord. How has this affected her mind. Returned in a big way earning a shot at the Legacy championship at International Affair, how has the time off affected her in and out of the ring? Lots of questions to be answered here.
Dan Benson C. Not much to go on here. Surprised a lot of people by assisting Sean Jackson at I.A. Wait and see prospect.
Jason Cashe D Jason got his first taste of life in the major leagues of the UTA and seemed to wilt from the spotlight. Losing to Sean Jackson in his first try was no disgrace but a step back to recover his credibility with the fans would help instead of trying again and possibly ruining his credibility with another lopsided loss.
Ashley F Ashley is in serious need of a make over and a fresh start. Right now, Ashley is nothing to the fans but a body on a roster. Not good.
