There's not enough hype in the world to turn this one around

There is a lot going on right now as wrestling fans prepare for the biggest event of the year, which is obviously WrestleMania. For some fans, it is the equivalent to how some look forward to the SuperBowl, or perhaps how baseball fans prepare for the World Series. Nonetheless, it is our favorite time of the year and we go all out for this grand spectacle.

With all of the hype and the pageantry that surrounds WrestleMania, there is often times a crash afterward, if you will, and one of the things that typically happens in the days, or sometimes weeks after, is contract terminations. While it doesn't always take place, there have been plenty of instances in the past to support this claim.

Looking at the current WWE lineup of rosters, from RAW, SmackDown, and NXT, who are some of the current Superstars you see that could be in danger of being cut? Here's a look at 5 current WWE Superstars who could be in danger of being released in the aftermath of WrestleMania 34.

#1 The Ascension (Konnor & Viktor)

We are still waiting for The Ascension to "rise"

This one is a bit disappointing for me to include in this list. If you have followed me or my writing for any amount of time, chances are, you know how much I genuinely like and support The Ascension. Having followed them since the old FCW days, as well as meeting them both in person on several occasions, I have grown fond of the duo. However, life on the main roster has not been very welcoming for Viktor and Konnor.

Looking back now, it's hard to believe that these guys were once one of the hottest tag teams in wrestling while they were bulldozing through everyone in NXT. Their reign as NXT Tag Team Champions was something worth noting. But just as the cream rose to the top, things just as quickly went south for the former NXT Tag Champs.

As they currently battle their way out of this wet paper bag, that is the current storyline with Breezeango, it's hard to see light at the end of the proverbial tunnel for these highly skilled Superstars. Unfortunately, I can definitely see these guys being called to the carpet in the near future and being wished well on their future endeavors.
