Top 15 Wrestlers That Should NOT Be On The WWE Roster By 2017

The WWE is in a bizarre state right now with various talent all over the map. There are part-time stars that show up for a few matches each year such as The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar and Triple H. The true elite full-time main event superstars are John Cena and Roman Reigns, with Seth Rollins on the bubble when he’s healthy. Just about every other credible star is located in the next tier. Names like Kevin Owens, Dean Ambrose, Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus and many others make up the majority of the rest of the roster. This is how a roster is usually constructed but it gets more interesting with NXT.

NXT has introduced a new variable into the world of WWE. The developmental system ran by Triple H has rapidly evolved into a full-fledged traveling promotion with red hot momentum. Fans want to see NXT and treat the wrestlers like they are bigger stars than the names on Raw. The NXT brand has already created stars like Owens, Bray Wyatt and Neville to give the main roster new talent to showcase. WWE’s roster only has so few spots and with this many hot young talents in NXT, they are ready to get called up and make more money for the company.

The main roster wrestlers have to watch their back with fans demanding new stars on Raw and SmackDown each week. Hell, the free agent market has even shown to be booming with A.J. Styles debuting, along with Shinsuke Nakamura, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows rumored to be coming in. Competition between the athletes will see new levels in 2016. Everyone wants a spot but there are quite a few wrestlers that are trending downwards in WWE. Some are past their prime nearing retirement, many have seen their slim chances at success end and a couple are just awful. We’ll look at all and pick fifteen wrestlers that should not be on the WWE roster in 2017.

Brie Bella’s husband Daniel Bryan joins her at the top of the list for different reasons than anyone else selected. Bryan is one of the best wrestlers in the world and one of the most popular with a legion of diehard fans. The problem is he will likely never be able to wrestle for WWE again. Bryan has dealt with a couple of concussion issues and WWE doctors apparently don’t think he should be competing in a ring. The flip side is his own doctors are saying he is fit to wrestle and he’s been very open about his hopes to continue wrestling regardless of what WWE tells him. If they don’t think he’s able to compete now, they never will. The company and Bryan should agree to an amicable split and he’ll end up wrestling in other promotions like New Japan and ROH.
