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.
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)
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.
How are we going to have spur of the moment tag matches now?
Look here Mr TV announcer. I'm 6'9", over 300 pounds, size 17 shoe and I'm no coward! I'm gonna go post on THE-W and if all these egg suckin' dogs talkin' out the side of their necks don't like it, I will whoop them just like I whooped Dirty Rhodes, Andre the dummy, the masked varmint, Thundermouth Patterson and that drunkin' indian Jay Strongbow!
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.
You were smiling? It wasn't long ago the dude was wrestling for us, and there we are, in the bar that just hosted our latest show this past Friday, watching him...do a spot with Hulk f'n Hogan...at goddamn WRESTLEMANIA. Awesome. (BTW, StaggerLee......
