The McMahon family returned on Raw this week to address the free-fall that Raw had experienced over the last two weeks.

In order to hype up the proposed changes, they announced that six wrestlers from NXT would be joining the main roster soon.

Among the call-ups were Lars Sullivan, Lacey Evans, Nikki Cross, Heavy Machinery, and EC3.

Since six new wrestlers will be coming up to the already crowded rosters with several under-booked stars (Andrade Almas, the Revival, Shinsuke Nakamura, the IIconics) some wrestlers might either be released or not used.

Here are some wrestlers who might be released in the coming months in order to make room for the superstars joining the main roster.


Mojo Rawley/Zack Ryder

Zack Ryder has been with WWE for more than a decade.

Mojo Rawley has been with WWE or NXT for four years.

While the Hype Bros team had a few interesting moments, the shelf life of the team was not very long.

Rawley's spastic nature and 'over-hyped' nature actually resembled an out of control child more so than an adult male.

Ryder has always been over with the crowd, but both men have been off of television for quite some time.

Rawley was getting a little footing as a more serious heel, but feuding with No Way Jose can only get you so far.

Since both Ryder and Rawley don't really have roles in the current state of WWE, other than possibly jobbing to others, they might either ask for their releases or just be released outright.

Either might have better success on Impact or NJPW, but it does not appear like either has much of a future in WWE.
