Top 8 Recent Wrestlers WWE Should Have Released And 7 They Should Have Kept

It’s a tricky dynamic, but when you get right down to it, these are the top eight recent wrestlers WWE should have released and seven they should hav

WWE’s rotating roster doesn’t always leave you time to be sentimental. You might have a personal favorite superstar, but all it takes is a string of bad matches, some backstage issues, or even just one of Vince McMahon’s whims, and they will be out of the company the next day. This is just the way that business works and WWE is a business. Still, there have been plenty of employees that WWE have parted ways with who should still be with the company today. Granted, some of these stars didn’t really come into their own until they left WWE, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t incredible pieces of talent who could help make WWE better.

On the other end of that are superstars that need to be shown the door. Firing employees may sometimes be an awkward subject, but sometimes, there is just no getting around the fact that there are rostered WWE stars who are occupying a position that another wrestler - such as some wrestlers who were unfairly let go - could very well be using to entertain fans everywhere. It’s a tricky dynamic, but when you get right down to it, these are the top eight recent wrestlers WWE should have released and seven they should have kept.

8 Kept - Wade Barrett

7 Release - Eva Marie

We see what WWE sees in Eva Marie, which is really just another way of saying that we see that Eva Marie is an incredibly attractive woman who has mass market potential. We’ll also admit that Eva Marie’s brief run as the ultimate coward heel on SmackDown who found a way to avoid every match was incredibly entertaining. However, she managed to ruin even that because of a wellness policy violation that has kept her out of in-ring action for some time.

6 Kept - Alberto Del Rio

4 Kept - Cody Rhodes

3 Release - Bo Dallas

2 Kept - Drew McIntyre

1 Release - Dolph Ziggler

Here’s a tough one. If Dolph Ziggler left WWE tomorrow, what would his legacy be? You’d like to think that he’d be remembered as a former world champion who put on a series of classic matches, but the truth of the matter is that Ziggler would likely be best remembered as that guy that kept falling on his face reaching for the brass ring. Ziggler’s never really lost his in-ring skills over the years, but he’s never found the perfect character and still struggles to cut a good promo. To be honest, WWE would have been better off either letting him go or bouncing him down to NXT a few years ago in order to let him find his character. As it stands, he’s an expensive piece of midcard talent.
