Sometimes things just don't work out the way you want them to.

This is particularly true in pro wrestling, where it seems some talent is always being shifted about, either by their own volition or at the behest of their employers.

The fact is, sometimes, changing to another promotion can be good for a wrestler. Many athletes find a new lease on life after they are fired by one of the big promotions, like WWE.

But that doesn't mean that the company made the right decision in firing them or allowing them out of their contracts. In fact, many times it actually hurts the company to lose said talent.

In the WWE, talent shuffling happens on a semi-regular basis. Here are ten wrestlers the WWE should rehire.

#10 Simon Gotch (Grimm)


Simon Gotch brings old school wrestling and technical precision to the table, mixed in with a generous assortment of Mixed Martial Arts moves. He has a great look and presence to match his top-notch skills.

Why he was fired/Released: Gotch ended up losing his job at WWE due to perceived attitude problems backstage, and his inability to get a decent match out of Enzo Amore (who has also recently been let go.) He was also blamed for an incident with Sin Cara even though the latter was the first to get physically violent.

Why WWE needs to hire him back: Gotch is one of the better technical wrestlers active today, and has a great poise and presence. Much of his backstage problems can be contributed to the fact that he is something of a perfectionist when it comes to his in-ring work. Putting him on the 205 Live roster would group him with peers who also take their wrestling very seriously, and his charm and demeanor would help the struggling division immensely.
