Re: WWE release Trent Baretta (POSSIBLY MORE TO COME)
It wouldn't shock me to see more guys released over the next couple of weeks... I think everyone is conveniently forgetting that WWE didn't release anybody at all in 2012 without a request (besides AW, but that's a different story). Pretty much everyone else who left last year requested their release: the Bellas, Beth Phoenix, Kharma, Tyler Reks, Maxine, I might be missing more.
I know that there's no proof, but I'm convinced that no moves were made due to Linda's Senate run, where all she had to hang her hat on was 'jobs creation.' Can't be firing guys while saying that, it's kinda hypocritical right?
All that being said, I think Trent is a talented guy & fun to watch in the ring, but he obviously wasn't going anywhere. He probably deserved better and should have been given at least a chance, but that's the way things go sometimes in WWE.
