So its the time of year is around where the talk of potential roster cuts is on its peak, we have put together a list of four Superstars who could get the axed.
In the world of pro wrestling, there can be stretches of great profit then out of nowhere there can be a lull. Historically, WWE makes roster cuts in April after WrestleMania.
According to givemesport, there are four names circulating . Those names are R Truth, Aiden English, Emma, and Curt Hawkins.
R-Truth has had a long run with WWE as he signed with the company back in 2008. It should be noted that he did have a run with the company during the Attitude Era. Aside from his big push in 2010 when he challenged John Cena for the WWE Title at the Capitol Punishment PPV event, he has not been used higher than a mid-card talent.
This moves us onto Aiden English. Now that his former tag team partner Simon Gotch is no longer under contract with the company, he is back to his original gimmick that he had when he was in NXT, which is a singer. That gimmick dried up quickly in NXT and will likely do the same on the main roster. Unless he receives a gimmick change then there is no upside to his potential.
Emma is the next name on the list. After having runs in NXT and on the main roster, her WWE career has been brought down by injuries. In May of 2016, WWE announced that Emma had suffered a back injury during a live event that would require surgery, causing her to go on hiatus. Then in October of that same year on Raw, a repackage vignette was shown, teasing about a “makeover of Emma to Emmalina.”
These videos would air and air, but she didn’t make her return until February of 2017. Yes, 17 weeks later, she was back. Fast forward to May, she suffered a shoulder injury at a live event in Liverpool, England. However, that injury didn’t put her out of action for long as she returned on June 12th. Since then, she has not done much on television aside from a quick JOB to Nia Jax on last week’s episode of Raw.
The final name on the list is Curt Hawkins. After having an average run in WWE, he was released in June of 2014. To his credit, Hawkins, who is a good wrestler, took his talents to the independent scene and had some great matches with various wrestlers. On July 21, 2016, Hawkins signed to make his return to WWE and joined the SmackDown brand. Since then he has been a jobber and used as an enhancement talent.
