Did Lacey and Corbin get punished?
 
I don't know if I missed anything or were they written off for a reason or are they being punished

Corbin is in the King Of The Ring tournament, and he's probably gonna win, honestly.

Lacey Evans is still MIA, and good. She's the worst wrestler in the business. She has no reason to ever be on television. Granted, I still think she'll be holding one of the singles belts by the end of the year, because.....Vince.

One of them is taking some time off I believe.

Lacey aint in the championship picture and isn't in a tag team so WWE isn't booking her apparently. Corbin just finding a new feud I reckon

I initially thought they were taking them off TV after losing to Seth and Becky 100000 times, but not seeing them last night is a bit disappointing. Neither are taking time off. Lacey has been on Main Event and Corbin has just been backstage. We need Wrestleforum's favorite son back on TV asap.

Corbin has got to be a favorite to win KotR, it's either going to be him or Rick O'Shea.

RAW has been so much more enjoyable without them on it. Lacey is terrible in the ring and her character is just bad. She can stay on Main Event with Dana. Corbin was way overexposed and used far too much in high profile matches that he had no business being in.

Well if you're aren't fighting for the Womens Title you don't get TV time.

As for Baron Corbin, he's about to become King Corbin! Has a nice ring to it doesn't it?

Everyone's favourite son is in the KotR. They're probably figuring out where to go with him.

Lacey is just dead. And that is good. She has like no redeemable features. Guess she can't bop her head as good as Alexa can.

The WWE has nothing for them right now--story of the company and its talent. And I don't even like these two. But it's clear that they just cannot juggle such a large roster. They need to let a bunch of names go, not just for the company's sake but for the sake of the wrestlers and their fanbases. And not just scrubs like some unknown cruiserweight Perkins type or a guy like Shawn Spears, but some of their more notable ones that Vince uses sometimes in the title picture but obviously doesn't love. Guys/girls like Finn, Joe, Sasha, Asuka, Ziggler, Ember, etc

Either that or officially give people time off without penalty or fear of getting "time added" to their contracts. Popular underused talent who are doing nothing right now should be relaxing at home or even *gasp* be allowed to wrestle in the indies while under contract, not wrestling stale WWE house shows every week while they aren't in storylines for months at a time. That just hurts their stock and that in turn ends up hurting the company itself. Jobbing a guy like Ziggler out 20000 times may hurt Ziggler but it also hurts the company when they need to use him every 6 months or so. Who wants to watch a title program when you know it's just to feed to someone Vince prefers? That's how you lose viewers and fans.

WWE in its quest to put everyone out of business ended up killing their own brand. When there were territories, people could go in and out of the WWE, and it wouldn't feel like they were being put on a shelf because if they weren't being used they'd be doing something else in Memphis or something before being called back for a significant program. Nowadays when people are doing nothing they either job for months or only appear on house shows.
