In some breaking news, WWE has released a surprisingly amount of their superstars. It seems like its been a while since they have released as many as they did.
Here is the following list according to the WWE website:
- Drew McIntyre
- Jinder Mahal
- Curt Hawkins
- Theodore Long
- Brodus Clay
- Evan Bourne
- Yoshi Tatsu
- Marc Harris (referee)
There is only one that I am truly shocked by which is Brodus Clay. I always liked Brodus Clay but when he returned a few years ago in a comedy role, often times that spells out doom for a long run in WWE. That is, unless you are Santino Marella. Its a shame because he could have been a monster opponent for some baby faces with a good manager like Paul Heyman. I never heard of him getting into trouble but maybe something happened behind the scenes that caused his superstar status to go bye, bye.
Drew McIntyre had a good start only to be buried in the long run, like so many others. Not much good on the mic but I always liked his look and he was a solid wrestler which seems to be a secondary thought now-a-days.
This next one is one that I kind of forgot was even on the roster. Evan Bourne has had some wellness policy issues in the past despite being a great high flyer with a cool name and awesome theme song. I’m not sure what the final nail in his WWE coffin but it would have been cool to see him back in the ring.
I won’t go into the rest of the superstars but its sad to see superstars let go because for most of them, this is their dream. WWE is the goal for most wrestlers because its the most lucrative in fame and fortune.
Some of these wrestlers might find success in other promotions like TNA/Impact Wrestling but they have had to skimp back on their own talent. Although I believe Brodus would be a good addition as a monster heel in TNA. Drew could be good as well but in a stable or tag team scenario.
