It's fair to say that Vince McMahon has made his fair share of mistakes when it comes to letting certain superstars go.
Drew McIntyre was probably a blessing in disguise.
If anything, the Scotsman perhaps needed that exit as he reinvented himself on the independent circuit before WWE came crawling back.
Now, he's looking like a megastar with reports claiming Vince and Triple H are personally moulding him to become a Universal Champion down the line.
Then, there's Cody Rhodes who has made a huge name for himself on the independent scene after ditching the Stardust gimmick.
It can even be stretched to as far back as Kenny Omega who never really received a fair crack to show his skills in WWE.
Evidently, WWE is going to be interested in signing the most popular and talented names on the planet.
That's why it comes as no surprise that WWE has reportedly offered big-money deals to bring back Cody and Omega, as well as reportedly gearing up to offer deals to The Young Bucks.
This week, contract talks have been dominated by NJPW with Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer claiming that the Japanese promotion could be looking to re-sign Shinsuke Nakamura, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows very soon.
However, WWE has interest in NJPW star and former NXT name; Juice Robinson.
Robinson, who performed on NXT under the name CJ Parker has taken the independent scene by storm and is now the IWGP United States Champion.
'AIN'T EVER GOING BACK'
As his stock is rising at only 29-years-old, it's been revealed that WWE is interested in bringing him back to the company.
However, Robinson had defiantly shut down claims of returning while even taking a shot at a WWE official by name.
As you'll be able to see in the video below, he claimed he's never going back as he's trying his hardest to become a star.
According to Wrestling Inc, he said: "Fast-forward three years, WWE/NXT, all that s***, everything that you guys constantly ask me about, I know because that's what we talk about.
"That's what we talk about, we talk about WWE, but that's in the rearview mirror now, and guess what? I ain't goin' back. I ain't ever going back.
"It's okay because guys like Cody Rhodes, guys like Kenny Omega, more guys like that, Will Ospreay. 'Big stars, big independent stars!' Independent? You can take that and shove it up your ass, they're stars, baby.
"And I might not be a star yet, but I'm getting there. So titles do matter and guess what Canyon Ceman? I'm doing my damnedest to make myself a star."
Clearly, Robinson was wasted in WWE as he was never given a significant push on NXT, with Wrestling Inc adding that Ceman is the Senior Director of Talent Development for WWE.
Based on what he has said, though, he has very little interest in making that switch.
