WWE Releases (10 Confirmed): Referee Marc Harris Cut

  • JakShowtime

    And, with that, NXT gets a little less crowded…

  • Mike McCarthy

    Maybe Vince got Triple H to agree to the cuts in favor of bringing back Flair.

  • K!NG

    Brodus Clay is the only surprise there IMO.

  • kurt

    Cute. Misuse brodus clay, give him an absurd dinosaur/funk music gimmick, and when it fails, have him be one of the first to get fired in years. He had such potential as a monster heel. Talk about dropping the ball. Whatever wwe.

    • LogicallySaid

      100% agreed. Brodus could have been a huge heel. Sucks when you see him gone & flyers like Bryan & Rollins are given a lot of attention.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Brodus was a great worker but the funkasaurus gimmick killed any potential there was in him. I’m truly surprised with Camacho getting cut, great look, great in-ring work and he never really got any sort of chance.

    • savokes

      Hah, so much for our thought of Bourne being added to a possible MITB ladder match for a contract to challenge for the title….

  • Swieb

    Fire Brodus Clay……and JTG still has a job there?

    • Patrick

      somebody call his mama.

  • CJ Blaze

    And JTG’s streak continues…

  • david

    Not really any surprises. Teddy Long hasn’t been used in a while for any real purpose. Brodus Clay is the guy with real potential. I think maybe the incident with Adrian Neville and his teeth could have hurt him. Otherwise he had so much monster heel potential. But it’s tough when you have Mark Henry doing a similar gimmick at times with more experience. There just isn’t enough room for two workers like that at the same time. Bourne made some really stupid mistakes and I’m surprised he lasted so long.

  • Xavier

    The Teddy Long era is officially over 🙁

    JTG is the equivalent of the dude on office space with the stapler. Through some type of glitch he’s still getting a paycheck and no one has caught it yet. LONG LIVE JTG!

  • Zack

    Can’t say I’m surprised about Evan Bourne but that doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed

    • CJ Blaze

      I always liked Bourne and even Tatsu. But I was hoping they would hold on for a little bit longer.

  • JR Texx (Jamie)

    Brodus Clay and Evan Bourne? Shame really, Evan Bourne has spent time healing, when he’s close they let him go, and Brodus Clay? well, WWE certainly lost a good potential heel.

    • Bryan Kole

      The problem is, Evan Bourne is ALWAYS healing. He does like 2-3 matches, then goes on the shelf again. No sense paying someone for around 4 matches a year. As for Brodus Clay, i agree. He HAD potential, but the “creative team” isnt worth a shyt, and burned his chances day 1.

    • Venom

      It could have been worse. I remember they released Test when he had a neck injury. He no fire rule wasn’t in effect for over a year when he had 2 strikes and an injury and they kept him on board. It seems like because of how much money part time talent are making they cut the dead weights. Still haven’t heard about JTG, Justin Gabriel and David Otunga.

  • CJ Blaze

    Add Aksana and Jinder Mahal to the list of future endeavored.

  • Skip Mathias

    Drew McIntyre… really?

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      So much for being the Chosen One, guess 3MB is done.

  • rschell21

    I have a feeling there are some more names coming up like otunga, Gabriel, Darren young, jtg, and woo woo woo your fired

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      I don’t see Justin Gabriel, Darren Young or Zach Ryder going.

      • theburningfire

        If they can drop Clay, who has massive potential, and 2 of the 3MB, who were regularly featured performers, I can actually see any of those guys going. Not saying I WANT to, but I absolutely could.

        • JR Texx (Jamie)

          True that.

  • Kyle

    I miss WCW

  • Oxbow

    horribly overrated gimmicks defined the attitude era. your nostalgia is clouding your judgment and making you emotional, its okay

    • Wolfgang Faustus

      Attitude was my favorite because it was the era where wrestling knew it wasn’t “real” so they took it far, made it entertaining and didn’t just focus on dudes in underwear. I understand we can’t have the same they had back then but aim for gimmicks like x-factor, the corporation, the nation of domination. Have the undertaker taking down pieces of the stage with lightening. That was an awesome time.

      • solemnservant

        The Shield brings back that feeling for me check them out they are a force to be reckoned for sure

    • Charlie Tyler Deaver

      ahhh the internet… where you can spread your opinion only to be shot down by little boys sitting on their mama’s keyboards thinking their actually meaning something when shooting down a pure honest opinion…. you go kid… you rock

  • Charlie Tyler Deaver

    come on playa!!! teddy and evan were the only ones i was sad about…

  • Seriously?! No more Teddy Long? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! 🙁 And they got rid of Evan Bourne as well? WTF?!

  • Angela M Stewart

    Brodus Clay? He is so under utilized, he has potential! I will miss seeing him

  • Ricky

    Only shocker was it took them this long to fire Bourne. I like him but he fucked up, then tried to thrown someone else under the bus, then got hurt. None of these really caught me off guard.

  • wrestler79

    If they really want to improve the first one on the next list should be Stephanie McMahon.

  • Dave

    One can only hope bray Wyatt follows the buzzards to the unemployment line

    • John Belrose

      He will not, he is too popular right now. I may not like his character but I do respect his ring acumen and his mic skills. Those right there contribute higher to a wrestlers popularity than most anything else. Granted that does not explain some of the popular gimmick wrestlers.

  • mike

    they need to get rid of zack ryder,,,and replace him with jeff hardy

    • Bryan Kole

      Yes on dumping Ryder, NO!! NO!!! NO!!! on hardy, i have NEVER liked either hardy OR Lita.

  • Cliff Holz

    Two questions, 1 Who is Camacho? 2 Why did you get rid of Teddy Long? I liked Teddy Long

  • shel

    never mind anything else, i still cant believe bray wyatt is mike rotundo’s son 🙂

  • shel

    never mind that , i still cant believe bray wyatt is mike rotunda’s son 🙂

  • M.C. Elroy

    Idk why you included the Shield in your tirade. Their gimmick was very Attitude Era-esque.

  • Bob’s Diner

    Well hopefully Evan Bourne finally gets the message now

  • Charles

    It’s a sad day when they break up the band.
