Paid Members WWFChilli Posted March 20, 2012 Paid Members Share Posted March 20, 2012 It's Wrestlemania season which means soon it will also be spring cleaning season. Where WWE usually dumps a few talents on there arse because they either have no use for them, they've outlived there usefulness or the writers just flat out do fuck all and squander someone. It's always interesting to see who gets the chop. Whenever a fantasy list appears on here of who people think will get released, they are usually oddly off the mark and we get a few surprises. So lets talk about the times WWE has been trigger happy with the future endeavors and what could have been done different. Who didn't deserve to be released? Was someone released for political reasons etc. IIRC the years with big cuts that come to mind are 1988 (Patera, Killer Bees, JYD, Muraco etc), 1992 (when half the roster fucked off because of steroids), 1999 (DOA, LOD, Public Enemy, Blue Meanie, Dan Severn, Paul Ellering and god knows who else was dumped after Mania XV) and most recently the largest spree of releases were in 2004 and 2005. In 04 Test, A-Train, Billy Gunn, some divas and some other people my mind blots out were released and in July 2005 about 20 talents were released (involving Kidman, Haas & Gayda, some cruiserweights, Mordecai, Kenzo and more) some thought this was to free up some dosh to lure Lesnar back when he popped in to see Vince for a coffee in early July 2005. If anyone (Lister probably) can give a more accurate list please do. So... mass firings. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
