Ok, here is the scenario. WWE needs to trim the fat from the company, and decides they are going to sack a total of 20 people, broken down as follows:

12 male wrestlers
6 female wrestlers
2 non wrestling personalities

Wrestlers and personalities on any of the shows, inc NXT, count.

They then give you the book and let you choose who goes. So, who do you get rid of?

And as an extra, you can also hire one person from TNA. Who gets the pick?

Only 6 of those useless broads? Aww.

12 Male Wrestlers: David Otunga, Heath Slater, Brodius Clay, Drew McIntyre, Jinder Mihal, The Great Khali, Trent Baretta, Skip Sheffiled, Tyler Reks, John Morrison (he's about one foot out the door already), JTG, and Hornswaggle.

6 Divas: A.J, Akansa, Alica Fox, Brea Bella, Nikki Bella, Rosa Mendez.... c'mon, can't I keep going? Razz

Non-Wrestlers: John Lauranitis, and Jack Korpella.

(Note: Vickie Guerrero, I didn't list, because as much as she annoys me, as long as she's employed, it means more money to Eddie and his family, and I support that. for that, i'm willing to put up with Vickie and her X-Pac heat)

Male wrestlers: I've not done 12 because I've not watched enough of the newer guys to pass comment. It wouldn't be fair of me to pick them. The ones below I've seen and don't rate (Khali, Hornswaggle, JTG) or think should be cut because of age, injuries or lack of storylines (

Kevin Nash (a legend but time to move on and development new talent)
Rey Mysterio (well past his sell by date)
Undertaker (I love the guy but I think it's time for that one last Mania match and then bye bye)
JTG
Kane (they don't seem to know what to do with him and he's not getting any younger)
Hornswaggle (if he's still there)
Great Khali

I think they should keep Morrison as I think it would be unfair to drop him because of what his gf did.

I'd rather Vickie was dropped from appearing but agree that it would be nice to still have her on the pay-roll.

Personally, I wouldn't drop Vickie because she's a nuclear heat-getter, and they could use her to help get a new talent over. But as for who I would pick.

1. Great Khali (I'm sure he sells the product in India, but he's a danger in that ring)
2. Jinder Mihal (Of no use whatsoever)
3. Titus O'Neil
4. Tyler Reks
5. Rey Mysterio
6. David Otunga
7. JTG
8. Johnny Curtis
9. Michael McGuillicutty (though I'd keep an eye on him, as I think he might be reasonably decent in time)
10. Darren Young
11. Primo Colon
12. Percy Watson

Of the women:

1. Kelly Kelly
2. Tamina
3. Rosa Mendes
4. Nikki Bella
5. Bri Bella
6. Alicia Fox

Non-wrestling:

1. Johnny Ace
2. Teddy Long

I deliberated over Mason Ryan and Drew McIntyre, but I'd keep them around to form my UK stable under the leadership of William Regal. Regal with Barrett, McIntyre, and Mason Ryan makes a perfect British version of Evolution in my eyes.

As for a TNA talent to hire, it would have to be Bobby Roode.

I forgot that bit! I'd totally agree on Roode being the number one pick. That said, I'd try and Christopher Daniels in through the back door...Wink

I forgot about the TNA star.

Bobby Roode all the way. Although I wouldn't mind seeing both the Motor City Machineguns in the WWE under a new (but not stupid) gimmick. Just as themselves.

I nearly said the MCM as well. Imagine a match between them and Air Boom...

The Guns, Roode, Storm, Daniels, Kazarian, Styles, they could all be great assets to the WWE. But it would all depend on how they were used, and I think they would all be cautious about what they would be landed with.

(colossal name drop alert)

As Frankie Kazarian told me himself "it was always my deam to work for WWE- then when I got there it turned into a nightmare"

Yeah I'd imagine WWE can be a real shitty place to work if you're not one of the top guys or very popular backstage. All those massive egos, all the ribbing, stupid gimmicks.

Well, as its almost Halloween, let me offer an alternative. Through some cosmic adjoining of the physical and spiritual realms, WWE is able to sacrifice all of the Divas, and in return bring back to life 10 wrestlers who have passed on.

Each will return in their prime.

So who do you bring back?

Andre, Perfect, Eddie, Savage, Pillman, Benoit (solely from a wrestling point of view), Owen, Bulldog, Yokozuna, Earthquake (teaming with Andre and Yokozuna...)

Sorry in advance for the big gaps between names. Not sure why it's doing that, and not sure how to change it.

The blokes:

David Otunga

Brodus Clay

Heath Slater

Jinder Mahal

Johnny Curtis

JTG

Tyler Reks

Skip Sheffield

Khali

R-Truth

Alex Riley

Hornswoggle

Women:

Both the Bella's

Layla

I don't know much about the Divas, so can't think of any more.

Non-wrestlers:

Scott Stanford

John Lauri... Laura... Lari... Johnny Ace!

TNA talent I'd hire: I've always been a fan of Kazarian, but I don't think I'd choose him. I think Mark Haskins is pretty awesome, and would like to see him in WWE... But I'd like to see Bobby Roode in WWE even more. So my choice is Bobby Roode.

Who I'd bring back from the dead: Owen Hart, Kerry Von Erich, British Bulldog, Eddie Guererro, Chris Benoit, Test, Chris Kanyon, Randy Savage, Curt Hennig, Hawk (so he and Animal in their prime could take over the tag team division). That was harder than I thought It'd be. Narrowing it down to just ten was very difficult, because there's way more than ten I'd love to bring back.

Hmm, I forgot that Haskins has worked for TNA. I'd love to see Mark make it in WWE because the guy is absolutely awesome, and has worked incredibly hard to get where he is. When you consider he was the third string joke act in the FWA Academy "chavs" stable when Matt was in the Entourage, its incredible how far he's come.

Ah but if the mystic powers brought back Hawk in his prime you'd have to kill Animal and get them do the same. Otherwise you'd have a lop-sided team...Wink

Just for the sake of a once great tag team I'll make that hit!

All I've got to do now is decide which of the wrestlers I brought back to life I want to kill again.

Make them all like Captain Jack off Torchwood. Every time they die they come back alive. You could have some really bloodthirsty hardcore matches then! Or like The Doctor. Every time you have those matches and they die the come back as somebody else! Sort of a very leath lottery...Wink
