Remember that thing where WWE appeared unwilling to release anyone? Apparently that thing is now over.

WWE.com list of cuts (so far)

- Brodus Clay
- Camacho
- Evan Bourne
- Yoshi Tatsu

That list appears to be growing, it was three when I first heard about it. A pivotal day for the how long has JTG been employed tracker.

Camacho and Clay were last seen losing feuds in NXT (though Brodus had a brief cameo on TV in mass runin.) Those aren't the first guys who've just happened to be fired right right after they were used to put over someone on the developmental show. (Tatsu was also destroyed the last time we saw him.) I'd worry for Tyson Kidd if Total Divas hadn't been renewed.

Tatsu will find work in Japan (and it was more a surprise he didn't leave earlier to find it.) Evan will get picked up by every US indy and seems a lock to get an offer from AAA if he wants it - no drug testing in either is a plus. Both have been off the radar for so long that they don't seem tainted by their WWE stint, just really cold.

Brodus would obviously roll into TNA in years past (then have forgettable six month stint before falling of the face of the earth), but they may be bringing in new guys now. Camacho would fit with his (half?) brother in NJPW but they're approaching critical overload of foreigners as is.

Please reply with clever puns.

Edit: Even since I started writing this post, Teddy Long and Curt Hawkins have been cut. WWE fringe people need to turn off the phones and hide.

Teddy Long! Man, that one stings. I honestly thought he'd have a job for life. I'd peg him for the HoF undercard and a Legends contract in a few years, though.

None of these guys were used very often, so that's no shock.

Ryder still employed. For now.

I think Camacho could've had a decent shot at getting somewhat over if they promoted him as Son of Meng and not Los Boriquas Reject #26, but it's still not a great loss.

Was Teddy Long the longest tenured employee after UT, HHH, Kane and Mark Henry? He was refereeing in 1998 - I can't think of anyone who's been around that long without leaving. (Not counting backstage officials and whatnot)

EDIT: also Aksana. Still no great loss.

Aksana too. They even changed the main photo on the WWE.com story to her. Released the same day as her ex...

Aksana gone. Between Yoshi and her, this is a bad day for memorable entrance music.

Jinder Mahal now too! I guess Hornswoggle is getting a proper 3MB promotion.

Drew McIntyre added to the list. Now it's a 1.5MB

Wow, Jinder Mahal is a little bit surprising just because he's been on screen a lot. Although I prefer all the other members of 3MB.

I agree that they could have done SOMETHING with Camacho but Camacho and Brodus have spent most of their recent screen time on NXT so maybe this means more time for newer NXT guys.

I wonder if Evan Bourne being released opens up a spot for Adrian Neville on the main roster as flashy spotty babyface guy.

Wouldn't that require Evan Bourne to have been on the main roster?



Everything is awesome.

AJ Styles come on down! Probably not. It sucks when anyone gets fired especially in this rather 21st Century heartless memo way. Teddy Long is probably the one I shake my head over. He could be one of those guys that could end the Authority storyline. I have no idea why they broke up 3MB when they have been on TV.

Drew was personally signed by Vince! Him and Eric Escobar!

I think they dropped the ball with that guy. Just as he gets the Future Shock over, he was buried.

Think we need to immortalize Brodus Clay happily smiling at his demise (and the others on this list.)

How are we going to have spur of the moment tag matches now?

Teddy is probably one of those guys that we should have to worry least about. More likely that he wishes to spend time home/retired and WWE ends the contract.

For a lot of these guys we can do the "omg! They were never used properly!" routine, but sometimes it's not a bad thing to release those you no longer really have plans for.
Yeah, 3MB was on tv, but as background sidekicks for Hornswoggle.
The only one I feel sorry for is Evan Bourne who was probably finally ready to return (he must've been cleared by now, right?) and then you don't get to return at all. Then again, he's the guy that's probably welcome in ROH or AAA and people will cheer.

Evan tweeted some inspirational thankyou message last week about how he'd been able to live his dream by working for WWE and for all his fans to stay tuned because the best is yet to come. I think he's known about his release for a little while.

SO SAY GOODBYE

But seriously that guy deserved better. So did a bunch of these folks, but they're all damaged goods and it's probably easier to get over all new people.

I look forward (???) to the inevitable Brodus Clay vs. Bromans house techno vs. funk dance off skits in TNA.

PS: So is it safe to say that, out of everyone, the person that got over most of all from 3MB was Hornswaggle? Because that's depressing.
