And so without delay, here are the Superstars who might very well find themselves in either TNA or Ring of Honor in the very near future:
It seems as if though the WWE likes to include surprise releases during its “spring cleaning” and the inclusion of Cody Rhodes is no exception. Rhodes has been underutilized ever since he and Goldust lost the tag team titles to the New Age Outlaws at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Even though he is currently in a storyline in which he chooses a tag team partner for Goldust, I expect this storyline to be scrapped due to Triple H reportedly not sold on the second-generation performer.
The WWE in my opinion won’t seem to miss Rhodes as I think he’ll be one of the top performers in Jeff Jarrett’s upcoming promotion Global Force Wrestling and perhaps the face of the company in years to come.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Just three years ago, The Miz was the WWE Champion as well as one of the WWE’s most despised heels. It seems as if though The Miz was suddenly on top of the world.
Fast forward to today: The Miz hasn’t been seen on television for a couple of reasons. One, he was filming the upcoming movie The Marine 4 and second, he’s another victim of WWE Creative not having anything for him. Heck, he was even replaced on WWE Main Event by the highly-touted Byron Saxton. Not a good sign for “Mr. Awesome.”
Brad Maddox and Vickie Guerrero
With the release of longtime SmackDown GM Teddy Long, it may not be too much longer that Brad Maddox and Vickie Guerrero could join Long on the unemployment line very soon. With The Authority (led by Triple H and Stephanie McMahon) making the matches as well as the end of WWE Brand Extension, the GM role has become yesterday’s news in WWE Management’s eyes.
Many WWE fans (myself included) were surprised that David Otunga wasn’t one of the eleven Superstars getting “Future Endeavored” on Thursday, considering the fact that he has pretty much been absent ever since John Laurinaitis disappeared from our TV screens in 2012.
Expect Otunga to be not so lucky the next time the mass releases start rolling soon.
He may have been on the WWE main roster for a few months now, but the man formerly known as Consequences Creed has not fared well so far. Despite teaming up with R-Truth, Woods has had a forgettable feud with the now-released Brodus Clay, among other things. With his outlook in the WWE looking bleak so far, look for Woods to get his walking papers soon.
