Con: An Unbalanced Roster

Right now, there are exactly three top heels and three top faces on Smackdown. You have Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Jinder Mahal on one side, while on the other you have AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Randy Orton. If Orton were to disappear, there’d be an imbalance.

Shinsuke Nakamura is sort of damaged, but even if they booked him well to improve his standing, that’s still only two to three. There’s no one else right now who matches Orton in star power. No one is as credible as Orton.

There’s nothing that good booking can’t fix, and this is a problem that can be solved in a relatively short amount of time. That said, WWE needs to address this issue quickly lest a dearth of upper-card faces occurs.
