SLAM! Roundtable: WWE firings and hirings
By SLAM! Wrestling
With no immediate possibility of an NHL hockey draft, the SLAM! group gathered around the table to talk about everyone's second favourite subject, roster moves in the WWE.
As we all know by now, Jamie Noble was recently let go by the Fed, while Viscera and Gangrel were brought in. While the latter moves are likely one-shot deals and not permanent positions, it still makes you wonder what exactly WWE is looking for to fill out their roster. With that in mind, the SLAM! staff offer up their opinions on who should come and go in WWE.
SLAM! Speaks Topic #3 - "If you were in charge of talent in WWE, name
one wrestler/manager/etc. you would fire, and one personality you would
The Last Word
If I had to cut one wrestler, maybe Albert. I mean, really would anyone miss him if he was cut? I can barely remember which roster he's a part of and no matter which show he's on, would it change one iota if he just suddenly wasn't there?
As for bringing one in, I'm gonna go out on a limb with Devon Storm (aka Crowbar). I remember him being pretty decent when he was with WCW and to be honest, one of my favourite storylines was his infatuation with Daphne (stands to reason, she'd have to come in as well). I realize we already have one romantically-inclined storyline (Kane-Lita...well, not TOO romantic!) but I think if they did a slow burn with Daphne-Storm, it could work.
Even without Daphne in tow, Storm would be a decent mid-carder they could kinda
groom for the next level, the way they did with John Cena.
