One of the more weirdly fortuitous things that's happened to the WWE is that the competition has made wrestlers jumping from the WWE to other organizations a running joke rather than any sort of threat to business

The IIconics were the most over heels in the womens division, so naturally Vince had ruin them.

They were taking tv time away from Charlotte, and we can't have that

I struggle with how they never pushed Kalisto. Guy was good in ring and personable when he was champ and doing local interviews. He just couldn't get a semi decent storyline even if he was weaker with what they'd script him promo wise. Just a worse look on the cut with Andrandes comments

Joe (if he has Christian's doctor) can go to AEW and do cool stuff for a few years. I expect Iconics there too since Peyton's hubby is there.
Shocked that Al Black didn't get cut

I think "doing cool stuff" at his age and weight is what got him into the situation where he's getting released

You know they say that all men are created equal, but you look at me and you look at Samoa Joe and you can see that statement is not true. See, normally if you go one on one with another wrestler, you got a 50/50 chance of winning. But I'm a genetic freak and I'm not normal! So you got a 25%, AT BEST, at beat me. Then you add Kurt Angle to the mix, your chances of winning drastic go down. See the 3 way at Sacrifice, you got a 33 1/3 chance of winning, but I, I got a 66 and 2/3 chance of winning, because Kurt Angle KNOWS he can't beat me and he's not even gonna try!
So Samoa Joe, you take your 33 1/3 chance, minus my 25% chance and you got an 8 1/3 chance of winning at Sacrifice. But then you take my 75% chance of winning, if we was to go one on one, and then add 66 2/3 per cents, I got 141 2/3 chance of winning at Sacrifice. See Joe, the numbers don't lie, and they spell disaster for you at Sacrifice.

I think Impact is the best possible home for a lot of the released wrestlers. Kalisto has X Division champ written all over him. Iiconics inevitable run as tag champs will be seen as deserved, because of how good they are together, not just because they were WWE wrestlers. Chelsea Green, she's already being welcomed back.
Mickie James, if she doesn't retire, will go to the NWA. Her husband is their champ and the face of the company. Bo Dallas I could see in the NWA as well.
Samoa Joe, he's a toss up. It's not about which company wants him, but where he wants to go. Hell, I wouldn't be totally surprised to see him go back to ROH. Everyone (except Vince) should want Joe.
The others, they've got a future of indie wrestling posters with, "featuring WWE superstar ___," on them.

I don't think it's so much that Vince didn't want him, he was pushed pretty well in the WWE. It's just that Joe just couldn't stay healthy. And again at his age, weight, and style he's basically an injury waiting to happen. And you can't really trust someone like that to make them a top guy, unfortunately.

I know he gets too keep his name, but he needs to find a way to keep his music as well.

I can understand not clearing Joe to wrestle with his injuries if they are frequent and severe enough, but Joe was also the best commentator they had in years.
