I'm also not sure how popular on-line Jack Swagger will be on his return. After all, the majority of internet fans do seem to favor heels. I do agree about Riley though.
Yea, I was going through the WWE roster page and skipped over Otunga, then back tracked. He was great when he was with Lauranitis, but since then he hasn't been very relevant. I would much rather see him in an executive position (kayfabe wise obviously).

DiBiase, I always found to be talented in the ring, but they never really had a direction for him. He was good in Legacy, but even then he was just another branch on the tree and was overshadowed by Rhodes. I wouldn't mind him going back to his Million Dollar Man gimmick, even if it is a copy of his father's. It atleast gives him a gimmick and allows him to stick out.

Re: WWE release Trent Baretta (POSSIBLY MORE TO COME)

Honestly, all of us who knew who Trent was in the WWE or even remembered the guy knew that this was coming because they just were not using him. It is a shame that the WWE never did much the the Dudebusters and then never did much with Trent Baretta. He got a few small pushes here or there on Smackdown, but thats it.

Sadly, I have a feeling that Hawkins will be gone also. Then only Zack Ryder will be left and honestly, I have even forgotten about him.

He could do a couple spots but I never cared for him. May he find success elsewhere.

Re: WWE release Trent Baretta (POSSIBLY MORE TO COME)

I thought Trent Baretta was released a long time ago. I think they should get rid of Tensai, Hawkings, JTG, and DiBiase. If they are going to waste the talent then just release them already. Lot of people think Ryder is gone but i think he isn't going anywhere. He has his own youtube show, has almost 1 million twitter follwers, and he always gets a huge reaction when his music plays.

Re: WWE release Trent Baretta (POSSIBLY MORE TO COME)

Heard of Trent when certain marks would go on about him, but never once saw him wrestle. We probably weren't missing much. There's always ROH or TNA.

Re: WWE release Trent Baretta (POSSIBLY MORE TO COME)

When you have Mason Ryan , Jack Swagger , JTG , Ezekiel Jackson , Khali , Hornswoggle , Aksana , Brodus , Otunga , Santino and Ryder you fire Trent Barreta ? Very clever...

The only way Ryder and Swagger are getting cut is if they request it. They supposedly like the Ryder/Clay tag team and Swagger is a great mid card talent who has former world champion in front of his name. Ryder also still gets new merchandise which means he is still selling merchandise. He probably still makes them a nice little chunk of change.

Re: WWE release Trent Baretta (POSSIBLY MORE TO COME)

I thought Barretta was fun to watch but small guys that can wrestle are a dime a dozen. Not sure I ever heard him speak and he didn't really have a character so it's no surprise he's gone.

As far as other releases go, I'd be surprised if Dibiase got the axe because of his old man and Hawkins is hurt so I think he's safe for now just so Vince can avoid the bad publicity of canning a guy while he's out. Guys like JTG, Ryan, and Zeke serve absolutely no purpose at this point though.
