One of the best things the brand split has brought in the WWE is that more stars are being given a platform to shine.

Obviously, there are still massive names such as Cesaro that are being under-utilised, but who would have thought the cruiserweights would receive their own platform in 2016?


Or whether James Ellsworth would have three victories over WWE World Champion, AJ Styles?

The extension has also allowed the WWE to bring back former talents in a bid to boost the numbers on Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live.

It’s worked for some, such as Rhyno, who is the current SmackDown Live Tag Team Champion alongside Heath Slater.

But it didn’t work for others, just ask Jinder Mahal.

The company also brought back two members of the Spirit Squad on the blue brand, Kenny and Mikey, and they’ve been thrown into the feud between The Miz and Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship.

They didn’t side with their former cheerleading buddy. Instead, they sided with The Miz and still feature on WWE programming, despite it looking like it was a one-time deal.

However, Pro Wrestling Sheet have revealed that Kenny doesn’t have much to cheer about this week, as he has been fired from his day job for missing work to wrestle for the WWE.


Dykstra was a director at a non-profit charity he was working at, and they released him because he was missing an excessive amount of days, although it’s said he was understanding of their decision.

They went on to note that Kenny believes missing work –and getting released – is worth it as he’s trying to get re-signed by the WWE and live out his dream once more, and it’s a risk he was willing to take.

However, the company still hasn’t offered him a deal so it remains to be seen whether it was worth being fired from his job to try and gain a contract.

It goes to show the lengths someone will go to achieve their dream of becoming a WWE star, and not everyone gets a second opportunity.

The again, it didn’t exactly work out the first time for him.
