    More releases and a retirement

    Post  Garibaldi on Sun Nov 21, 2010 4:11 pm

    WWE this week released six in ring names:

    Luke Gallows (despite him being told earlier in the day that they had something new for him and plans in place with Freddie Prinze Jr for a face turn)
    Shad Gaspard
    Vance Archer
    Caylen Croft
    Jillian Hall (finally the bad singing joke wore thin)
    Tiffany (Could spell trouble for husband Drew McIntyre)

    Also gone is "Big Dick Johnson", AKA WWE creative team member Christopher DeJoseph

    Retirement-wise, Matt "Spike Dudley" Hyson has announced his retirement from wrestling at an indie show recently
    ------------------------

    Shame about Spike as he rarely put a foot wrong, but he'd droppwed away from the big time and was getting older, so geting put without serious long term injury makes sense.

    With the releases, far to many cases of "half a tag team" getting released of late. It's like it's impossible for two members of a tag team to succeed enough to both get pushed any more. Only Miz + Morrison and the "Superteams" seem to both survive these days...

    It would help if they actually pushed the tag team division, no idea why they're breaking up the Hart Dynasty.

    I don't think that McIntyre will lose his job. He's got a huge upside to him, and one of the main reasons I feel Tiffany was fired was due to her domestic dispute (albeit with Drew, but it sounded like it was her fault) with McIntyre.

    Sad to see Gallows go, but I guess it was hard to find something for him after the SES broke up.

    Apparently he was due to debut a redneck face gimmick the week after the last match with Punk - who himself seems to be out of the ring for a while fllowing hio move to the commentary team on RAW - but they stalled and then suddenly dropped him.

    Punks injured to the end of the year at least and thats why he has moved into commentary to keep him on TV. It's a bit shitty because by all reports he was going to fued with Daniel Bryan/Bryan Danielson

    They did a stare down a while back which looked interesting. By aligning himself with Michael Cole there is a great chance that these 2 will tear down the house when Punk is back.
