WWE Future Endeavors Forecast 2018 Predictions of Releases

Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, January 6, 2018
While the beginning of the year brings about the ONE TO WATCH for 2018 where we discuss which WWE wrestlers are going to have the best year, the counterbalance to that is the FUTURE ENDEAVORS FORECAST.

In this segment, we discuss some of the people that we think will unfortunately not be on the roster come 2018 for one reason or another. Perhaps they will retire or be forced to take a leave of absence due to injuries. Maybe they will quit because of some kind of a dispute. Then again, most of them will probably just be flat out fired. Whatever the case may be, let's look at some potential options that will be wished the best of luck in their future endeavors this year.

Stay tuned to the list of releases from 2018 to see how the predictions turn out!

* NOTE: This isn't to say that we're necessarily wishing these releases upon the men and women that we mention. That might be the case for some, but generally speaking, this is about predicting what WWE will do more so than picking and choosing what we would like to see happen. This list represents the few that I feel the most confident will be gone, not who I would want to be leaving. *

Christy St. Cloud

NXT has a habit of going through interviewers and announcers very easily and she's the bottom of the totem pole right now. Someone like Kayla Braxton could end up randomly leaving, but they seem to be using her more, whereas Christy is still struggling a bit.

The Colons

Epico and Primo have been around for a long while and really have equally too much to show for their efforts as well as not too much to be proud of. Lately, they haven't even made their return to the ring after Primo's injury has subsided and he's been cleared to compete, which is very suspicious.

I wouldn't be shocked at all if we hear that The Colons are done with WWE this year and they go back to their father's promotion to be heralded as top talent there.

Dana Brooke

I feel like if any woman on the main roster gets cut, it'll be Dana Brooke, who perpetually has had almost nothing to do and doesn't seem to be going anywhere any time soon with her Titus Worldwide role.

That feels almost like a last ditch effort to try to do something with her and when it doesn't pan out, they might just call it quits.

Daniel Bryan

He wants to wrestle. It's doubtful WWE will clear him. Eventually, that's going to come to a head where he'll ask them to make the final judgment call, they'll say no, and he'll leave when his contract is up.

Dolph Ziggler

Do I even need to explain this one?

Kacy Catanzaro

Developmental talent are easy to release since they haven't developed a following and more often than not, they're axed since they find out they aren't cut out for the business in some fashion. With Kacy Catanzaro, she's attractive and athletic, yet she's already said that she won't be a heel, which Triple H actually went out of his way to disagree with. If she has that kind of "I won't" mentality, she'll either have to learn that she can't make that call, or she'll quit when she finds out that she doesn't have that control.

Lince Dorado

I feel like Dorado is the only guy who gets constantly overlooked on 205 Live, and I'm not sure why that's the case. The guy never does anything, and we sometimes go months without a single appearance from him.

It's a weird scenario, and out of everyone on that roster who doesn't have a preexisting "potential release" vibe hovering around them, he's the only on I can see them actively getting rid of for the standard excuse of "creative has nothing for you" problems.


Since taking his leave, Neville has yet to come back, and there have been reports that negotiations of his return have stopped. I guess he's going to be one of those names who goes to the indies and tries to make a bigger name for himself similar to Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger, which he may or may not be successful in doing.


Despite winning the SmackDown Tag Team Championship with Heath Slater, Rhyno hasn't accomplished anything since then. He's barely even been used as a regular jobber, let alone someone who wins matches.

At a certain point, you have to assume he'll take his leave and pursue other avenues in politics, which is something he's clearly passionate about.

Rich Swann

He's already indefinitely suspended and unless something happens that drastically changes the way he's viewed in this situation, he's basically just waiting on his release. Nobody will be surprised when that announcement is made.
