Not confirmed at all, this is just bizarre speculation.

In the last week 2 have already confirmed through Twitter that they are officially no longer with the company, those two being Kid Kash and Rosita.

So anyway who do you think we should expect to see going in the next month or two?

I think it will probably be:

Chris Sabin - I know he's awesome but he's injured at the moment and no point of him being under contract.

Sam Shaw - Didn't impress me when he was on Gut Check and I don't really think he's got that much potential anyway.

Crimson
- His undefeated run was bad, went on way to long and was boring as a face and not much better as a heel. Wouldn't be a big lost in the long run I believe.

Gunner
- I like Gunner, thought he would have been good in the Aces&Eight but doesn't seem like there going to go that way so I'd expect him to get released, I mean he hasn't been on TV in ages.

Alex Silva - I don't even know why he's even on the roster in the first place to be honest lol...Just get rid of him

There the top 5 I can think of, I doubt they'll release anymore Knockouts mainly because there's only 7 left they can actual compete, might be a few more from the guys that could go but anyway
Cutting an injured Sabin does not look good on the company after all he has dealt with. Bischoff also called him a pro's pro after the Roode beating he did last summer. My guess is they will keep him and he'll show up as a "surprise" once healthy, probably on a future live Impact or at Slammy.

Silva and Shaw are on probably on developmental deals not PPA deals. Likely making enough money to stay afloat but nothing spectacular at all...a few hundred bucks a week. Silva showed growth last he appeared on TV, not a ton but he was improved. One if not both will likely have a while longer to develop and grow.

Gunner and or Crimson could be nearing the end of the road.

I think the one to watch is RVD and whether they choose to let him walk.

I don't know any of their contract situations but I'd like to see RVD, Taz, Devon, Anderson, Hernandez, Chavo, Christian York, Brooke Hogan, and Taryn Terrell gone.

I can understand the need for Hernandez and Chavo since the tag division is already depleted but if they can sign some guys cheaper I would be fine with that as well.

Christian York I thought had potential the first time I saw him but he just looks so out of place in the X Division. Like Hernandez and Chavo I'm fine with keeping him but if they can get someone younger and cheaper for the XD I would be ok with that.

Would love to see the A&8's angle play out and Devon moved to a backstage/development role and an occasional appearance on tv.

I could see TNA making roster cuts and in many ways they should. I don't think it would be to offset cuts of going on the road though. I think it would be because of the saturated roster. With that being said I think the problem with TNA's roster is their is not much upside. There's no way I would cut the Shaw's and the Silva's of TNA they haven't had a chance to show what they can do. Chris Sabin is a hard one for me because he obviously has talent and is a great hand but giving his spot to a new wrestler wouldn't be a thing. I think TNA's roster needs revamping so, while I hate to see anyone loss their job I'd like a TNA roster with more upside instead of the been there done that guys who aren't being used.

Sabin is not very likely to be cut...

- Dixie just gave an update on his rehab via twitter. I don't think she would do that, if they plan to release him soon
- Velvet Sky is back... as long as they're together, huge reason
- and just to add it: he's awesome

Gunner and Crimson... possible. They seem to have no ideas for both and so do I nor do I have a desire to see them again.

Taryn Terrell --> Not before they let her wrestle
Chavo and Hernandez --> No. Both are Dixie Carter guys, especially Super Mex
Anderson --> Maybe. Hope not and I as well don't think so

RVD is kinda likely though. His contract will be up in spring. He would resign for the same paycheck, but I don't think he would receive it again.

I should be noted, that the roster in the mid- and undercard is already very thin. The uppercard is sick though. They need no replace the better known releases with someone else than the Gut Check and OVW garbage.

Why should they get rid of york? even if the guy isn't x division fast because of the weird amount of muscle mass he gained out of nowhere, he's still a decent midcard guy and not winning crazy amounts of cash.

Didn't Dixie say she wanted to run two touring shows with the roster? If that's the case, I can't see them making any major changes or cuts any time soon. Anderson could be one to watch out for, though as they don't seem to know what to do with him and I understand he has a big, fat contract.

Default Re: Expect some roster cuts...

can we just cut anderson and rvd? i mean gunner too i guess but he wouldnt suck that much if you stuck him in a tag team. him and kash would've been fine b/c at least one of them can work a match unlike the current tag champs. surely the money saved from canning bob & ken would help. p sure Doug Williams is some sort of ovw trainer now too (and he owns anyway)


Like Bowlen said, Dixie just gave an update on Sabin so there's probably something lined up for his return. Hopefully they don't rush it anyway.

York isn't great but yeah i don't see why he'd be cut being an x division name and all. If he wasn't due to return from injury I'd probably suggest sorensen too since he's bland and generally not that good. Will make a decent babyface for a while on his return i guess.

legit keep forgetting Silva and Shaw have jobs.
