Kassius Ohno is due for a call-up. as is one or two of the Divas down in developmental.
I don't think they released anyone on-mass last year like usual. Several Divas and some developmental talent requested releases or had contracts run out. I think they only fired Buggy Nova and Trent Baretta.
If they do release some this year, guys like Ted DiBiase Jr., Ezekiel Jackson, Mason Ryan, Michael McGillicutty, Percy Watson, and Derrick Bateman will be the most at risk. The latter four have been sent back to developmental. Bateman as the youngest (and most talented of these names) has the most potential followed by McGillicutty who might survive (though he'd be a great guy to go to TNA).
Yoshi Tatsu survives as he's the only Asian wrestler on the main roster. If there are any other releases it might be some developmental guys who aren't even featured on NXT.
