Could WWE's lower-card roster's unhappiness result in earlier-than-expected releases?



The frustration among several members of WWE's mid-to-low card talent being overshadowed by the likes of John Cena, CM Punk, Sheamus, Randy Orton, Alberto Del Rio, Big Show, The Miz, Rey Mysterio, Kane, Daniel Bryan, and Dolph Ziggler has reportedly caused scrutiny as of late.

It all began when JTG ranted on Twitter about not being used properly.


"Make decisions based on your worth, not your circumstance! I wish some one told me this two years ago."

"The camels back just broke! I had enough of this. As a pro athlete, I'm tired of me and my locker room brothers being taken advantage of. Fans have no idea what we go through. #itsanillusion. Yeah, I said it. Nobody wants to speak up, everybody's afraid of losing their job or getting taken off TV."

To tell you the truth, JTG is right. He, along with other little-used Superstars such as Drew McIntyre, Alex Riley, Mason Ryan, Trent Baretta, Ezekiel Jackson, and Justin Gabriel have found their pushes come to a halt, whether it's because of backstage politics or failing to get over from the WWE Universe.

This is where the WWE's annual housecleaning comes into play. Usually, the WWE releases several lower-card Superstars and Divas after WrestleMania in order to clear up roster space for up-and-coming developmental talent.

However aside from the departures of the Bella Twins, Kharma, and Goldust, no mass firings have taken place as of yet. The reason for this is Linda McMahon's Senate campaign. McMahon's reputation for being a "job creator" has prevented these roster moves to take place in order to avoid bad publicity for McMahon's campaign.

But could JTG's rant make the WWE change their minds about not "future endeavoring" several of its talent? It is certainly a huge possibility, considering that the end could be near for these aforementioned Superstars plus possibly Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, and Evan Bourne as well.

Things should get interesting in the WWE for the next several weeks.
