WWE Releases Drew McIntyre, Evan Bourne, Teddy Long, Aksana and More

PNG WWE Logo transparent background WWE Network iconWWE has gone on a future endeavors spree today and released Evan Bourne, Teddy Long, Brodus Clay, Yoshi Tatsu, Camacho, Curt Hawkins and Aksana (as well as others—check the updates below!)

For the most part, these don't come as much of a shock. In fact, most of them were on the watch list for potential releases on the WWE Roster Hierarchy here at Smark Out Moment.

Still, Evan Bourne had been tweeting recently that he was returning soon, Teddy Long seemed as though he could have stayed with the company indefinitely, and Aksana had been spoken highly of several months ago and featured on television quite a bit as of late.

Curt Hawkins was a long time coming, considering how he has never been a regular on-screen talent ever since the breakup of the Edgeheads.

Yoshi Tatsu went nowhere fast, so that was inevitable. The same applies to Camacho, who wasn't all that much to begin with and dipped down even more with Hunico switching over to the Sin Cara character.

Without a doubt, the one that I'll be disappointed in the most is the loss of Brodus Clay. I've been a supporter of his and was really, truly hoping that he would make it at least as a solid midcard champion. Perhaps there's still time in the future. The same applies to Evan Bourne, who I had hoped would find a good spot in the tag team division.

UPDATE: Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal have also been released. This means no more 3MB! Wow...

UPDATE: Referee Marc Harris has also been released, bringing the current total to 10. What's the likelihood that we'll end up seeing this number climb to a dozen?

UPDATE: Make that 11, as JTG was just added to the list.
