Damn, a shitload of people got released on April 22. Makes me feel kind guilty in a strange way that I was celebrating my birthday while all those people were losing their jobs.

(including one of my faves Shelton Benjamin)

I hate it when people get released. Doesn't matter who it is, gotta suck to lose your job.
I agree, except when they ask to be released. Some guys, like Kaval, can still make a pretty decent paycheck in the indies. It's not WWE money, but it's still pretty decent.

It makes me kind of sad thinking that within the next year we will probably see about the same amount of people gone again. Then you start thinking about all the people that aren't really being used.

Seems weird seeing Daniel Bryan in there since he is the current US champ. They could have probably left him off that list since he came back so soon afterwords.

Carlito :(

wait, jericho was released? thought he just went away for a few months
His contract ran out. I don't think he signed another one and even if he did I don't know if we would know about it until he comes back.

Heaps of guys I was surprised to see let go. IMO MVP and Shelton were at the top of their game when they left/were fired. Disappointed to see Kaval, Carlito, Mickie James, Caylen Croft and Vance Archer part ways also.

Look again, he "departed." Which means his contract ran out and he chose not to renew.


Big stars never get the "Future Endeavors." Same with Shawn Michaels on that list.

Oh wow Caylen and Luke were gone?
Damn, didn't know that.


And at least we got to see The Hurricane shine once more before leaving.
