Three WrestleMania 32 winners WWE should release next

Published 3 Comments

Football News

Earlier this month those in charge of WWE surprised many when several names were confirmed as being released by the company.

Whilst many of the superstars listed were expected, the way the news broke came across as hard-hitting to many members of the WWE Universe.

The likes of Wade Barrett, Damien Sandow and Cameron were just some of the names confirmed as parting ways with the business, with many speculating how many more were to be announced.

Wasted talent 

Although no additional wrestlers have yet had their names announced as being let go from the company, there have been many rumours circulating that a similar announcement is just around the corner.

What is even more significant is that the company is wasting talented superstars who succeeded as recently as at WrestleMania 32.

This proves just how badly booked the biggest event of the year was in 2016, as the company produced results which had little to no impact during the following weeks.

These three superstars, despite their success on The Grandest Stage Of Them All last month, are undoubtedly some of the most suitable to be considered for release next.

Alberto Del Rio

Despite being on the winning side of The League Of Nations when they overcame The New Day at WrestleMania 32, Alberto Del Rio's focus has been minimal of late.

Del Rio's current position amongst the main roster is a far cry from the effective return he made during the Hell In A Cell pay-per-view event last year.

The wrestler, who turns 39 next week, rarely appears on weekly WWE programming and if he does, comes across as unmotivated, disinterested and simply bored.

This when combined with the recent news as Cageside Seats has reported, that he is unhappy with WWE as he was promised a main event push upon his return, demonstrate why he should be one of the next superstars to be released.

Ultimately, anything WWE have in mind for Del Rio now will have very little impact in comparison to his return match against John Cena last year. 

Zack Ryder 

Prior to WrestleMania 32, the idea of Zack Ryder emerging as Intercontinental Champion was laughed off by much of the WWE Universe.

Against the odds however, the 31-year-old overcame the six other competitors and was awarded the belt.

Fast forward to Monday Night Raw and it seems WWE favoured when Zack Ryder was not receiving the reward he deserves as he lost the belt just one day later to The Miz.

Following this occurrence, it is a surprise WWE have kept Ryder on their books for so long as it is clear they are not willing to give him a suitable push.

After his success at WrestleMania 32, there is little chance that anything WWE work him into in the near future would have as much of a successful impact, meaning his time with the company will surely be up in the coming weeks. 

Eva Marie

Eva Marie demonstrated her inability to compare to the current female division within WWE during her match at WrestleMania 32.

Those in charge of WWE are aware that Eva Marie is heavily dependant upon other superstars in order to promote herself in the ring.

With the company having given her several chances to prove her worth especially during her time at NXT, her incapability of being able to succeed as an individual must add to her likelihood of being released.

Despite being adamant that the boos she receives from fans in attendance mean her character is working, Eva Marie seems increasingly unaware that she simply does not fit into the current roster.

Overall, these three WWE superstars demonstrate just how poorly the company can book both its superstars and events, which is why releasing them would be beneficial for both the business and the wrestlers.
