Default Why WWE Releases 11 Superstars?

Some details have come to light on today?s WWE releases, which included Brodus Clay, Drew McIntyre, Evan Bourne, Aksana, Curt Hawkins, Jinder Mahal, Yoshi Tatsu, Theodore Long, JTG, Camacho and referee Marc Harris.

Q1: why they were released does it mean they were fired or There Contracts expired already?

Brodus Clay, Camacho, Curt Hawkins and JTG where doing absolutely nothing or weren't improving in NXT.

Evan Bourne: Constantly injured, multiple wellness policy suspensions.

Theodore Long: Hasn't been on television in months

Marc Harris: Newest Referee

Drew McIntyre: His Ex-Wife screwed his career

Jinder Mahal: Mediocre Talent

Aksana: I've got no reason for this...

They where Future Endevored.

They got released so WWE could reduce costs, because the WWE Network is expensive. WWE are greedy bastards -_- !! Poor Drew.

WWE has to do cost cutting every now and again.

WWE has new stars coming in all the time from NXT and other signings.

To cut a long story short the WWE ditched the dead wood, all those released (with the exception of the wasted potential of Drew McIntyre) were either useless or could offer nothing more.

Brodus, Jinder, JTG, Hawkins, Aksana, Camacho and Tatsu were all mediocre or completely useless in some cases and offered nothing.

Evan Bourne ruined himself.

Teddy Long could go no further than he has.

Drew McIntyre is the only waste from the entire list, his career went downhill after his domestic.

You can't carry everyone forever. They just brought up a bunch of new talent. Someone has to go.

Brodus Clay: WWE reportedly lost interest in him after ending his tag team with Tensai and abandoning his Funkasaurus gimmick. This was stated to be confirmed when he unsuccessfully challenged Adrian Neville for the NXT Championship.

Evan Bourne: Despite being healed since the horrific car accident that injured his foot, WWE had nothing for him. This and along with the fact that he's had several wellness policy suspension.

Teddy Long: He let his contract expire and, as he's 66 years old and The Authority dominating RAW and SmackDown, there wasn't anything for him to do.

Drew McIntyre: Has been with 3MB and wasn't given another chance at a serious singles push like in 2009-2010. It's felt that his ex-wife, Taryn Terrell (now a TNA Knockout), beating him up contributed to his demotion. McIntyre actually losing to El Torrito proved that there wasn't going to be a chance for him. Personally, McIntyre shouldn't have been let go as the guy has potential and we would've thought that the incident with Terrell should've been moved on.

Jinder Mahal: Budget cut like all of the above. Like McIntyre, he was with 3MB. His initial serious gimmick didn't click well with the audience.

Aksana: She never had a push and in-ring skills were very sub par, evident when she accidentally injured Naomi in a match earlier this year. With Alicia Fox going crazy and even attacking her, what more could Aksana do at this point?

Curt Hawkins and Camacho getting the pink slips were said to be shocking because for the former, he still had more to prove as he's 29 and was very reliable despite hardly ever being used much and for the latter, he was said to be clicking in NXT and it looked like he would get a push over there.

You do know that all those people were released by WWE 5 Days ago. All of them sent comments out via Social Media 5 Days ago and we already discussed them days ago. Normally, WWE releases people every year. In the last few years, WWE really hadn't released a lot of people. Wrestlers and Divas simply let their Contracts Expire, did not sign Contract Extensions and left. Someone at WWE realized that they were paying 6 Figure Salaries to these people and they were making very little if any money off of them, so they had to go. WWE will simply bring up new people that they will do more with. Too many people think that when WWE signs you, you're guaranteed to be employed for a long time? Think again. WWE promises opportunity. Nothing more and nothing less, that's Vince McMahon's Credo. Just like Vince hired you, VInce can fire you.
