It was announced earlier that Bull Dempsey (James Smith), Marcus Louis (Pierre Marceau), Sylvester Lefort (Thomas La Ruffa), Magno (Oscar Vasquez) and Peter Howard have been cut from the roster.
My reaction: I have no clue who the latter two are, and the other three were cuts that I saw coming. Louis and Lefort were two that I was expecting to be released last year, let alone this year. Dempsey, on the other hand, I figured had a chance to last until 2017 before being released but was definitely on my list to inevitably get dropped at some point. In the grand scheme of things, the WWE roster isn't changing, and hopefully all of these guys find good work elsewhere.
