Backstage News on WWE Not Renewing Contracts, Concern Over Christian’s Future

– WWE’s Scooby-Doo: WrestleMania Mystery was the #7 best-selling DVD and #11 best-selling Blu-ray in its first week of being released.

– As of this afternoon, Christian still has not been cleared to wrestle. There is a lot of concern over his future.

– While WWE made the decision not to renew Ezekiel Jackson’s contract this month, word is that they will not be doing a lot of cutting, outside of developmental talents and disciplinary incidents. Instead, guys who aren’t used that reach an age where they don’t see future upside in them, their contracts may not be renewed.

    I forgt about him, lot of changes there, but I’m just talking about today’s superstars. I’d love it myself if they were to repackage Tyson Kidd (as shared with us) so I can see him again. I just think the term gimmick in wrestling is something that’s just off the wall for a wrestler, something kind of unusual that some may be fickle about. I mean, people really like to weigh in on the negatives in wrestling nowadays. I can see Evan Bourne having a gimmick, we’ve haven’t seen him in a while. Bell hop or something.

    Except you have guys throughout the history of wrestling who have been well know, changed gimmick and its worked. Yeah smarks will always make comments about previous gimmicks, but if Ryder changed gimmick, it wouldnt be long before it was accepted.
    Just ask Charles Wright.

    I dont think you understand what racism means.
    Maybe its racist when people from America chant USA, USA then.

    if some people in india (or anywhere else for any nationalities) truely do that then that means that they are racists

    Not the ones we know about now though. Ryder as a ballet dancer or a badass Hells Angel biker, we’ll know he was the dude from Long Island that had half tights and “Woo Woo Woo” for a catchphrase. They’ve had the personas for too long so if they would have a new persona or gimmick then they should change a lot about themselves. I can see some of those suggestions, just not David Otunga for instance. El Torito though? Midget division?

  • 1985son

    He’s not there for his wrestling ability. Ppl in india will watch just to see one of their own

  • The Yes Guy

    Ok.. We said the same thing about Husky Harris.

    Just see how Over he is now..!!!

    So just get them a good gimmick and they’ll rock.!

  • !~brody~!

    they also need to release alex ryley, david otunga, camacho, el torito, and fandango

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I’m sure everybody feels the same way.

  • Shawn OB

    I don’t like being mean but Khalis got to get out. He sucks big time.

  • trevor

    for cost cutting they should release Jinder Mahal, Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins, Yoshi Tatsu, JTG, HUNICO(sin cara) and Brodus Clay who after his last gimmick is just a joke!!! The WWE has missed the boat on a lot of potential mega stars in the last few years so they have nobody to blame but themselves for lack of main eventers.
