On Monday, "B2" Bull Buchanon was released from the WWE. A week or two ago, Justin Credible & Raven were both cut as well.

The roster is still jam-packed -- and that's not including the guys who are shaking ring-rust in OVW, on the injury list, or doing the vignette gig until they are brought back in.

I see several more cuts coming.

Guys I can see at risk:

1) Mark Henry. He might have a big contract, but he's as useless as tits on a bull.
2) Johnny Stamboli. He was working Heat for a while and never quite did anything other than get an upset win over D'Lo.
3) Chuck Palumbo. He's on a slippery slope and with Billy Gunn retired, I don't see Chuck getting any attention with his bland look.
4) Goldust. Surprised? Well, I wouldn't be. He's probably safe for now...
5) Jackie Gayda and Linda Miles. It would be a disaster for Vince. I see him letting their contracts run out, whenever that happens...?
6) Hardcore Holly. I don't know if this would happen, since he's been with the company the longest (longer than Taker I believe)... but he's no good to them anymore really. And I'm a fan of his too!

Who am I overlooking?

I was thinking of doing this post, even though it's kind of morbid on guessing who the hammer is going to fall on next.

1)Johnny Stamboli- He seems like a name like B2 that they would just get rid of without a second thought.

2)Jacqueline- reffing one week, wrestling the next. Not over even in Texas and her wrestling is slipping even.

3)The Cat- I saw his Velocity commentating the other day and he was really bad, he hardly even said anything... And unlike the bad commentator on the Raw B-show you won't have a mass suicide of 15 year old girlz if The Cat gets released.

Now might be wishful thinking

4)Kevin Nash- He put a dent into McMahons wallet without any return what so ever. I think the second Vince can do it he's gone. Hopefully

5)Scott Steiner- Won't happen next week. But Steiner is already stale to the mass audience, he can blade all he wants, I don't see it getting better. He might be released shortly after WrestleMania.

Again I have little knowledge of anybodys contractual situation, I'm just guessing who Vince would wave his firing wand on

The only one that really hasn't been mentioned so far is Terri. I'm sure she can be replaced by someone younger and less costly and whose plastic surgery hasn't pushed her to the "damn creepy looking" stage. Terri's a couple of years from looking like the 2000's version of Nancy Reagan, and that's not a bad thing, that's a really bad thing.

I'd also throw Three Minute Warning into this, but only if the brand extension ends and they no longer need filler tag teams.

No, they can't release Terri! Who else would step up and take on the role of Doink?

I'm thinking Mark Henry is next on the chopping block, but, and I hate to say it, but I wouldn't be too surprised to see Bill DeMott get tossed. I'd hate to see that, because given an actual character, the guy deserves at least one more chance.

I'm also thinking Crash Holly is dead weight, too.

I really kinda doubt that they would release Bill DeMott anytime soon, but I guess that depends on if there will be a future Tough Enough 4. I think that the Tough Enough series is probably over, but if they do decide at some point to do a fourth season, cutting one of the trainers of the third series a few weeks after it ends will really reduce the credibility.

As for the other names, I don't really care if someone like Mark Henry is released or not as long as he isnt on Tv. I don't have a problem with him doing a gimmick where he bends a metal rod or lifts a car at WWE events or house shows, because really that is what he is good at, being strong, not wrestling.

They did cut Tori before the final for Tough Enough 1.

I'd say Stamboli, except then they would have to re-do Bischoff's entrance video to get rid of him, so that might be the only thing keeping him around.
In another year, Mark Henry's contract might be near the point where Vince will be willing to get rid of him. However, it still is close to a million owed and Mark Henry is big.
Jackie should have been cut years ago.
Unfortunately, all members of the Tough Enough Bunch probably have lifetime positions with the company.
Palumbo has the physique Vince loves, so I doubt he'd dump him yet.
Thus, using WWF/E logic, Tommy Dreamer will be the next to go by losing a career match to a Tough Enough Kid.

Hopefully, Hardcore Holly, or A-Train.

Probably, Johnny Stamboli.

I think it'll be Mark Henry, although one tends to wonder if he has something in his contract about him not getting released or WWE having to pay him a ton if he gets released. I only wonder that because he should've been released years ago.

I hope Johnny Stamboli doesn't get released. I liked him back in his WCW days. Other than Henry, I can't really think of anyone that would get released. Maybe some developmental talent.

Here's my preferred cut list, though the likelihood of any of this varies.

1. A-Train
2. Jackie Gayda
3. Linda Miles
4. Big Show(I know that it's unlikely for Vince to dump such a "name" guy, especially when TNA would probably put the NWA title on him in a heartbeat just for the name. But does he really add any value to the product?)
5. Mark Henry(see above concerning the product at least)
6. Jaqueline
7. Terri
8. Bradshaw(I know he's inured, but his matches were getting to the point of unwatchable)
9. Nidia(useless)
10. Rikishi(When I see him on my screen, I think to myself that I'm going to see five minutes that could've been spent someplace else. The only thing over is his ass. There is a place for big guys on the roster; just not one dimensional lugs who require on-screen salad tossing to get themselves a pop)

Surely ths is the weirderst and most conceited notion that ever entered a human brain!"

Taker has got the longer tenure November 1990. Dickbob Holly came in right before Royal Rumble 1994. The only one longer would be Billy Gunn who debuted May of 1993. But is Billy Gunn still with the WWE?


But I doubt they will cut Holly, for his tough enough crap! Show won't be going anywhere soon. Bradshaw neither, remember how Bradshaw always gets those 2 week pushes before people realizes how much he blows. Plus JR is a big Bradshaw mark. Played with Texas Christan yee haw!


A-train, maybe soon but not right away! Stamboli and Crash, well they might as well start packing. How about Chuck Palambo?

"9. Nidia(useless)"

Take that back RIGHT NOW. She's a Hell of a lot more useful than Torrie, Dawn Marie, Ernest Miller, Chuck Palumbo, and countless other bottom-card flotsam.

Word. Nidia has a great future in the company, in my opinion. And in Hustler. ;-)

In my opinion A Train is great. He hard working in the ring. Always looks energized and dominating and is god awful with all that body hair. He's a freak and a hard worker. You can't ask much more of a wrestler.

I hope they give that Nash his walking papers. I could almost swear he gets hurt intentionally and milks the wrestling companies for all he can. I mean he hardly even looked in shape when he came back. Of course he'll get hurt when he's only giving 50%.

I think GoldDust must really be good friends with someone to take a what would be cool freaky gimmick and do nothing with it.

And why are they firing people one day the hiring Lil Guido the next?

A few weeks ago I would have said Jeff Hardy, but at least this petulant baby thing gives him something fresh to do. Heck... it worked for Christian (although Jeff can't compare to Christian on the stick). They have to keep all his antics in-ring and off-mic.

Other than that, I'd say Mark Henry, the TE2 girls, Stamboli, 3-Minute Warning, Sparky & Rikishi should be next on the chopping block (and not neccesarily in that order). And not cutting anyone is fine with me... I've got nothing against someone collecting a paycheck... as long as they stay in dark matches and off my TV.
