WWE continued to clean its cupboards today as they released even more wrestlers, a diva and yet another referee. None of the cuts will resonate on WWE television at all with the exception of Colin Delaney.
Colin Delaney– this was another one that after Tuesday night it made no sense for him to be an employee of WWE. He weighs about 100 lbs and has incredibly white skin even for a white guy. He was never supposed to be an employee of WWE in the first place and the fact they signed him to a contract with him is a mystery. As soon as Colin turned heel he was perpetually bitched out by Mark Henry and finally Tommy Dreamer ending his stint in WWE. This one is kind of a surprise as well since they just signed him to a deal a few months ago. WWE had to know that he was not a good fit for a company that still prides itself on looks first and talent second. What a shame, this could have been a really cool story years down the line if he would have remained employed. Although, his Independent stick just went up.
Stevie Richards– Well the hammer finally fell on good old Stevie. He had a nice long run with WWE and actually had some fun angles. He took over Sunday Night Heat and renamed it Stevie Night Heat. He was the ringleader of the RTC. He helped train with the McMahons and was trusted to work behind the scenes on some of their bigger matches. Stevie always seemed like he was going to fall in to the Scotty Too Hotty, Val Venis and Funaki stable of wrestlers who fall under the firing radar. Apparently someone pulled back his invisibility cloak and found him lounging about Titan towers. I have never said this before with a degree of seriousness but he is a guy that could really help TNA behind the scenes and in front of the camera. Problem with that is they have 237 wrestlers to fit in a two hour episode of Impact as it is.
The Highlanders (Robbie & Rory McCalister)– Is there any reason this waited until Friday when the writing was on the mat Monday night? This was called by yours truly as soon as I saw them in the ring with Cryme Tyme. These two were never given a chance to shine as a modern day Sheepherders type of gimmick. Instead they were a watered down Bushwhackers that just didn’t work. Then Robbie goes and gets caught on TNA TV. The fact they made it this long is an accomplishment.
Cherry is a mild surprise but on the surface she did not fit the WWE mold. She did not have centerfold model looks and they always dressed her conservatively. Whenever this happens and you are a valet instead of a wrestler your days are numbered. She was saddled with the stupid roller skates that made her legs look short and squatty but then they gave her sneakers which accomplished the exact same thing. The only thing to really remember her by was her bikini contest appearance that gave me some pant twitches. Right after that they put her in a burlap sack and made her pout around with the greasers.
Wes Adams– Who the fuck is Wes Adams? He wore a referee shirt and wasn’t named Jack Doan so he does not matter.
