When Jess McMahon and Toots Mondt partnered together in 1952 to create Capitol Wrestling Corporation Ltd., it is unlikely that either one thought that their little promotion would one day become the billion dollar company that it is today. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. as it is now called, is the biggest wrestling promotion in the world, and has attracted many of the best wrestlers from around the globe. Throughout the decades and different eras, the WWE has produced hundreds of wrestlers, and even though many have had long lasting and sometimes iconic careers with the company, the same cannot be said about other wrestlers.
The likes of Hulk Hogan,“Rowdy” Roddy Piper, The Iron Sheik, Bret Hart, Triple H, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ric Flair, The Undertaker, John Cena, and Randy Orton make up the upper echelon of superstars whose names will be remembered for all time throughout the industry. They are the types of wrestlers, whose style, appeal, skill, and work ethic, allowed them to become immensely popular with fans, which led to the WWE investing a lot of time and money in their careers. Then there are lesser big name wrestlers who make up the majority of the mid-card, who often times do provide enough popularity and financial return to warrant the WWE’s continued investment. Then there are superstars who find themselves at the bottom of the barrel, these are wrestlers who, sometimes through no fault of their own, have not been able to win over fans. These wrestlers often fail to connect with fans due to their unlikable gimmicks, lack of appeal, or genuine perceived lack of in-ring skill. No matter the reason though, if a superstar is unable to win over the fans, or the WWE sees no real future with the individual, than that wrestler will generally not last long within the company and get released. Here is a list of 10 wrestlers The WWE Will Release In 2016.
8 Curtis Axel
7 Adam Rose
6 Zack Ryder
5 The Dudley Boyz
4 Rosa Mendes
Out of everyone mentioned on this list, Cameron is the one individual that the WWE desperately needs to get rid of; the very fact that she is still being paid by the company in 2016 is mind-boggling. Ever since she has broken away from Naomi to go solo, it has become overly apparent that she is a terrible wrestler, even more terrible than Eva Marie, but at least Eva receives great heat from the crowds; Cameron on the other hand, garners absolutely no reactions from the crowd that can be considered favorable. It is possible that the reason she has lasted so long is because she was a part of the cast of Total Divas, but as of right now, she is no longer even a part of that show anymore; meaning that possibly the main reason for keeping her around no longer exists. Currently, Cameron is back down at NXT, but with Becky Lynch, Charlotte, and Sasha Banks each being brought up to the main roster this past year, and with current NXT Divas such as Bayley, Asuka, Dana Brooke, and Carmella (who are all far more talented than Cameron) likely being the next group to be called up, it is unthinkable that the WWE will waste a main roster spot on Cameron again; and if there is no hope of her making it back out of developmental, then there is no point in keeping her with the company past 2016.
