Let's face it: Evan Bourne has been reduced to a jobber. It's sad, really sad. A lot of folks in the IWC love Evan Bourne. We don't know much about his mic skills (considering they give most of the promo time to Cena) but his in ring ability is pretty damn good.

Firstly, and the one thing I personally love, he sells his opponents moves very very well. Especially moves such as the clothesline, where it looks like he's gonna break his neck. Secondly, typical underdog gimmick (like Mysterio) He's the guy everyone says is too small to be in the fight, the guy everyone counts out. Third, the fans LOVE him. Listen to the pop he gets. Nowhere near Orton's or Cena's, but well above the mid carder's pop or heel heat. Give him a little mic time, cut a couple of promo's, and for God's sake, let him win.

Which they have now been doing as of late. First, his win over Zack Ryder two weeks in a row. Now his most recent win in a Main Event Tag Team match with Cena. He was even able to get the pinfall with the absolutely beautiful Air Bourne.

Give him a shot at the U.S. title, or put him in a tag team with a big man. Whatever you do WWE, do let his talent go to waste.

What do you guys think of Evan "Air" Bourne?
