Let's see, going over my list... I'd imagine anyone who goes long periods of time without appearing on Raw/Smackdown.
Crash
Funaki
Hardcore Holly
Johnny Stamboli
Mark Henry
Molly Holly (I like her, but where's she been?)
Scotty 2 Hotty (he wasn't that popular back before he got hurt)
Shannon Moore (he's nothing w/o Matt Hardy)
Spike Dudley (he'll probably hang around, just because he can make anyone's offense look good)
Terri (I'm sure they can find someone else to do backstage interviews)
Iron Mike Sharpe

OK...send them off to. Palumbo might be salvageable. But if htey need to go to dump Nidia, so be it.

Of my last, the last one I expected to see generate controversy was Nidia.

In no relevant order----

1) Chuck Palumbo
2) Kevin Nash
3) Mark Jindrak
4) Torrie Wilson
5) Billy Kidman
6) 3MW
7) Funaki
8) Sean Morley
9) Jacqueline
10)Helmsley

All cuts made were judged on an economic basis as well as staleness......


Salvagable Talent-----

1)The Hollys (reform the tag team)
2)Mark Henry (have Teddy Long rep him and team him with Rikishi)
3)Rikishi (turn this tired act heel and pair him with Mark Henry---Natural disasters 2003!!!)
4)Ernest Miller (lets see him back in the ring)
5)Scott Steiner (for Christ's SAKE!!--the guy's a natural heel, portray him that way!)
6)Tajiri (Tag this guy with the Show and run them against the Guerreros--Speaking of which...)
7)The Big Show (see 6....singles action just exposes the fact that he can't go more than five minutes...)
8)Jeff Hardy (heel turn might freshen the act)
9)Any Tough Enough Alumni (Turn 'em all heel and into a Bill DeMott led stable that just runs roughshod between the two shows)
10)Bradshaw (re-pair him with Austin)

as far as i remember from the dying days of wcw, the cat was a pretty entertaining talker, but never anything worthwhile in the ring. i think their current use of him is more than enough.

as for bradshaw, i don't think i'd pair him back up with austin. bradshaw needs a real gimmick, not "generic texas ass kicker." especially with steve austin on the same show, who wrote the book on that character.

I've never seen the point of Spike Dudley, not even as a bump machine.

Here's a guy who weighs less than a cruiserweight with absolutely zero charisma and not one offensive move to speak of. His one claim to fame, the Acid Drop, is better executed by Trish Stratus, of all people.

The instant I see him on my TV, I reach for the remote. Talk about useless.

"Here's a guy who weighs less than a cruiserweight with absolutely zero charisma and not one offensive move to speak of. His one claim to fame, the Acid Drop, is better executed by Trish Stratus, of all people."

Funny, I've never seen Trish do the Acid Drop, which is of course NOT a springboard bulldog. And the reason Spike is popular is because he looks like an everyday guy, he's the quintessential underdog. He'll always get cheered, just for being him, and he's worth keeping around to put guys over as total asskickers or garner huge heel heat for the beatings they give him.

Oh come ON with your Trish's bulldog vs. Spike's Acid Drop comments. Trish's bulldog is the single most business-exposing move on the planet. I'm surprised HHH hasn't confronted her on this move. Spike at least makes an attempt to run over to the ropes before executing the move. He doesn't sit and wait for his opponent to pick him up and position his feet on the top rope like Trish.

But I agree that Spike is getting cut before almost anyone else (besides OVW talent and Johnny Stamboli).



The call is from heroism; will you accept the charges?

Thanks to the exciting non-finish to RR 2K3, I have nothing to write about Spf here. Please go about your business as usual. Thank you.

1) 3MW - They can't even work a basic tag match.
2) Crash Holly - Dull as dishwater. He's an OK worker but he can never be more then a comedy jobber. Let him go, let him work somewhere else for awhile and maybe bring him back in a couple years.
3) Kevin Nash - He's a liability. How can you seriously set up any type of feud for him knowing how easily he gets hurt?
4) Jacqueline - Only detracts from the Women's Division. Totally useless now.
5) Albert - He's not big enough to play the monster, he's not good enough to be anything else so he's just a waste of time and space.
6) Spike - His act is more stale then his "half brothers"
7) Johnny Stamboli - No charisma, minimal ring skills, no point to keep him.
8) Bradshaw - Approaching Billy Gunn for failed singles pushes record.
9) Ernest Miller - He's just terrible on Velocity. Let him go!
10) Jerry Lawler - His act is tired. He's barely funny or witty. His views are passe.

Who I wouldn't cut and why:

1) Kidman - Maybe he shouldn't be Cruiserweight Champion but put him in a tag team with Rey and he'll start to get over. Even if he doesn't, he's one of their better Cruiserweights.
2) Rikishi - He's a good opening match act to pop the crowd especially at house shows. He moves well enough for a big guy to be watchable.
3) Big Show/Mark Henry - Costs way too much to cut these guys. Hook Henry back up with D'Lo as his bodyguard and occasional tag team partner.
4) Chuck Palumbo - He's got potential and is probably a career tag team guy. Send him to OVW and get him out of sight for a couple months then repackage him in a tag team.
5) Scott Steiner - The guy is still over enough that they can salvage something out of him. It's not facing HHH in the Main Event. He needs to be a heel, that's the only way he can work a slower style. I say get him traded to Smackdown, start the heel act in the midcard for a couple months then feed him to Lesnar.

Being picky about the facts ruins the joke. For me, anyway.

I realize Spike's supposed to represent Everyman. Thing is, I don't watch professional wrestling to see Everyman. And beating up "the average guy" doesn't get a wrestler over with me, it just gets me changing the channel.

Cut HHH.

Seriously though, cut Bob Holly. He brings NOTHING to the table. Use him to get over the TE guys (a beat down) and then axe him.

Of course, they could cut half the talent ship and still have a awesome roster. Of course, the cut half would go work for the Jarrett's and then there would be competition.

A pipe dream, I know, but a dream nonetheless.



So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one---big hitter, the Lama---long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Having a guy like Bob Holly appear on NWA: TNA does NOT entice me to buy the competition.

Every company needs jobbers. He would fit the bill perfectly as a heel jobber for NWA:TNA.

gotta say that Crash Holly is gonna be on the next chopping block....

and it is somewhat of a damn shame; the man has/had a somewhat good gimmick, and is quality low level entertainment. possibly a run in ROH would be cool for him; ya know, ditch the gimmick, go workrate heavy, etc.

I agree. Everything I've seen out of him has been asslike at best. Maybe he was better in WCW.

kanyon was really good in wcw.. i just felt he didn't get much of a run in the wwe, mostly because the whole invasion angle sucked the life out of everyone.. that, and they forced him into a comedy angle, which i'm not sure was the best idea because he looks goofy enough as it is..
