It has been a long time since WWE has made wholesale changes to their roster and given the fact that there is so much talent coming up to their main show, it would make sense that WWE would need to cut their budget.
Last time WWE released a list of stars at once was when they failed to hit the subscriber number needed for the WWE Network in 2014 and the likes of Drew McIntyre, Aksana and Teddy Long were given their exit papers.
Now rumors are suggesting that some superstars are set to be released imminently and could even be announced as departed as early as this evening. Here is a list of the five main superstars that could be facing the axe very soon.

ROSTER SHAKE UP?
The names at the top of WWE's release list have to be Adam Rose and Ryback. Ryback is perhaps the biggest name on WWE's radar right now for all the wrong reasons, whilst Rose's suspension followed by his Social Media comments can't have helped his cause.
The former Intercontinental Champion was last seen on WWE TV at the Payback event when he was defeated by Kalisto when the United States Championship was on the line. It was then announced the following morning that he had been remove from live events for the immediate future before The Big Guy himself wrote a blog on Tumblr that explained why he was yet to sign a new WWE contract.
Ryback seems to have caused a stir on Social Media with former WWE superstar Val Venus labeling him "Economically Illiterate" and it is hard to see WWE welcoming him back after publicly embarrassing them at such a high level.
The Social Outcasts team member was suspended last month for 90 days after it was revealed that he had failed a test in lines with WWE's Wellness Policy. Obviously all superstars are given these tests and are given chances to seek help if they do fail but are of course suspended for breaking the rules.
Rose then went to Social Media to air his grievances with the company before he was forced to remove the posts earlier today, it is thought to have been WWE that told him to delete them, but after two failed gimmicks and being forced into a group with four other superstars who are also having problems shining alone, could the writing already be on the wall for Adam Rose?

The former Funkadactyl has done herself no favors this week by agreeing with Ryback's comments on Social Media, this has instead seen her also become the victim of abuse from both fans and other stars.
Cameron had already stated that she had become the victim of an online bullying campaign and it was apparently something that was being looked into, but given that Cameron hasn't been used on WWE TV for a long time, she was sent back to NXT where she makes scarce appearances and she no longer has a role on Total Divas, could it finally be time to cut her loose?
WWE have stated that they are changing the company into a new era, this era will be for the new superstars who are coming through from NXT. So far WWE have stayed true to this promise and have allowed many stars to ply their trade on the main roster, but in order for the new to come through, the old have to bid farewell.
Sadly Mark Henry is one of the stars who should say his goodbyes, he hasn't been relevant for a long time and WWE will find it even harder to put him into a story line with all the new blood on the roster, so maybe now is the time to offer him a job that doesn't require him to wrestle?
The former Prime Time Player's name is probably banned from being mentioned inside Vince's office currently after the events that transpired following Daniel Bryan's retirement speech earlier this year.
Many fans thought Titus wouldn't even return to WWE, but he came out on Raw as a part of the United States Championship battle royal that was of course won by Rusev and it seems on his return Titus will be booked as badly as he was before he left, so why didn't WWE cut their losses? If it wasn't for the fans making a fuss about his fall out with Vince, it is likely that WWE would have released him already.
