    Judging by their tweets, Derrick and Briley (Dolph's brother) have both been released.

    Neither ever got a fair shake which is a shame. Briley was often stuck in interviewing positions in FCW and NXT, while Derrick never got main roster opportunities despite his good performances on NXT 4 and Redemption (his storyline with Johnny Curtis, Maxine, and Kaitlyn on NXT was really good).

    Gotta wonder if more releases have happened or are coming. It's been a while since we've got a mass release.

    EDIT - RELEASED LIST 5/17

    1. DERRICK BATEMAN
    2. BRILEY PIERCE
    3. SAKAMOTO
    4. AUDREY MARIE
    5. BRANDON TRAVEN
    6. PERCY WATSON
    7. ANYA

    WWE Spring Cleaning 2013 Thread

    Looks like they're starting with the NXT folks.

    First one gone is Briley Pierce, the brother of our World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler.

    Shame, he just debuted as a wrestler (jobber) on NXT last week.



    Derrick Bateman's gone too? Shame, he wasn't all that bad. Pretty funny personality back in the old NXT Redemption days.

    If I were Percy Watson I wouldn't answer my phone today.

    I'm guessing Fandango/Johnny Curtis is thanking his lucky stars today.

      Shame about Pierce but he still young , let him get more experience in the indies and I think he'll eventually be back.

      As for Bateman I thought he was ready for the main roster, shame also.

The other, of course, involves orcs."

        I see Percy going too, wouldn't be surprised if he already got the phone call. Sucks that they never capitalized on him after NXT 2.

        I'd say Yoshi and Hunico might be at risk too despite being great wrestlers, but at the same time, they do need great wrestlers like that to fall back on. I haven't watched much of Camacho, but him as well. And maybe Big Zeke too.

        As for divas, I would say Rosa but she is always safe (they need someone for the WWE.com photoshoots!) but you never know. I would have said Alicia a month ago but she's been doing a lot of press and charity lately so she's likely safe. If any divas go, I guess there's a small chance Audrey is released. And possibly Anya since she's been employed for nearly a year and still hasn't appeared on NXT, though they might just be working really hard on training her.

          If Hunico and Yoshi get fired it would be such a waste of talented wrestlers, Hunico was putting some of the best matches weekly before he got injured, hope they don't get fired.

            And JTG, who celebrated his sixth anniversary in WWE this week.

              Bateman seemed like he had potential, too bad on that one.

              No idea who the other guy is, although it's surprising that they'd release the brother of someone who's pretty highly regarded right now (and is the current World Heavyweight Champion).

                Bateman is an example of how WWE is so lazy and misses the boat with people. As Stefan mentioned, he's a funny guy, and he had a lot of personality and charisma. The knee injury may have hurt him but it's not like they were ever actually trying with him on the main roster anyway.

                And after Caylee Turner and now Briley Pierce, is it time to stop with the younger sibling experiments?!

                  I'm gonna laugh my ass off if JTG survives yet another round of spring cleaning. He's becoming the new Funaki in that regard.

                    Sakamoto's a gonner I bet (he tagged with Briley in NXT this week coincidentally). Yoshi's safe only because he's the only Asian guy on the roster. Same reason Funaki lasted as long as he did - and after Yoshi arrived, he was fired.

                      The WWENXT account tweeted this a few hours ago:

                      Which #WWENXT Superstar should be brought up to the main roster?

                      Not enough Briley responses I suppose! Also, maybe I take back my possible Anya release prediction, since they plugged her on the NXT Twitter account today.

                      I forgot JTG was on the roster when I made my predictions post (despite Michi changing the Raw party thread title earlier this week!)...that's how bad it is.

                        They've brought in a lot of new faces to NXT over the last year so it's not surprising they are letting a few go. Never really saw anything in either guy so can't say I'm disappointed.

                          WWE has also released Sakamoto, who was originally paired with Tensai before being sent back down to developmental, this morning. He was signed to WWE in 2011 after originally breaking into the business under TAKA Michinoku in Japan.


                          There are at least two additional names we have heard were released from developmental and are working to double source them.

                          Yep, I was right. Sayonara Sakamoto.

                            What a great week for Dolph. First the concussion, now his brother got fired.

                            Sakamoto? Don't you mean Sak O' Tomato? Or his other name, Sum Ting Wong? Seriously, after that (racist) burial by Cole and Lawler, I'm suprised he lasted this long.

                              What about Brodus' "fat friend that thinks he's Japanese"?!

                              Also, Curt Hawkins is at risk too, as always.
