from Jason Powell at www.prowrestling.net

WWE has released Shelton Benjamin, Mickie James, Slam Master J, Kung Fu Naki, and Jimmy Wang Yang. You can check out the official notice at WWE.com.

from wwe.com:
WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Divas Mickie James and Katie Lea Burchill as well as Superstars Shelton Benjamin, Kung Fu Naki, Slam Master J and Jimmy Wang Yang as of today, April 22, 2010. We wish them the best in all future endeavors.

Jason Powell’s POV: I’m surprised by the Shelton and James releases to some extent. Mickie was has had some issues behind the scenes with other wrestlers and was said to have been problematic on the overseas tour.


  • Bryan said,

    Mickie will probably win the TNA Knockouts Title within the year. Its been interesting the last 4 months or so how little air time she has gotten.

  • Andy said,

    Maybe Mickie will return to TNA under her old guise she used in TNA, Alexis Laree…..

    Have to wait and see how long a non-compete might be…..

  • Andy said,

    Add another name to the list. From prowrestling.net:

    WWE increased the cut list to seven when they released Mike Knox on Thursday night.

    Will Cecil Carr be the next one to get the ax/cleaver? Will he get his realease from HTM?
