WWE is a business, full of employees, both on and off-screen.

With Superstars on RAW, SmackDown Live, 205 Live, NXT and NXT UK, it's no wonder why the company struggle to give every member of the roster a deserved push.

There are some stars though, that have been very outspoken about their time in the company, with current RAW Superstar Dean Ambrose being known to be leaving the WWE after WrestleMania.

Reportedly frustrated with his character on-screen, the self-proclaimed Moral Compass of the WWE certainly isn't alone with his grievances, and probably won't be the only high-profile star to depart in 2019.

Here are five WWE Superstars who could leave the company this year, and if they do, where they should head to next.


#5 Mike and Maria Kanellis - Ring of Honor

Maria Kanellis returned to WWE, with husband Mike at Money in the Bank 2017.

Mike and Maria Kanellis' tenure in WWE has not been easy.

Mike genuine substance abuse problems have caused the pair serious problems, but so have the WWE's lack of any sort of push.

Appearing at the Money in the Bank 2017 pay per view, it seems that the Kanellis' have had no moments of note in the near-two years since their debut.

The pair were certainly a much bigger deal in Ring of Honor, and a return to the indie promotion doesn't seem that farfetched.

The couple were reportedly denied their releases from the company earlier this year, and whilst Maria denied that she'd asked for her release, fans quickly spotted that she said nothing of her husband.

With their WWE Network special also cancelled at the last minute, it may be time to say goodbye to love in 2019.
