Heath Slater
While a lot of fans were under the impression that he would be on the receiving end of a contract release along with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre, Heath Slater has managed to survive and is still with WWE. Unfortunately, though, the company really does not have any plans for him at the moment. He's basically just a filler guy at live events, teaming up with various partners for the time being.

Heath Slater
During a recent interview, Jinder Mahal revealed that he was surprised by his WWE release. He stated that he and Drew McIntyre had no signs from management that they were on the bubble. Mahal noted that 3MB, which currently only consists of Heath Slater and Hornswoggle, was booked on a lot of events, so they felt that their job security was not a concern at the time. WWE, however, needed to cut cost.

Heath Slater
For those that are wondering about the fate of 3MB after Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre received their release from WWE earlier in the week, it appears that the company will keep Heath Slater and Hornswoggle together. The two of them worked a tag team match over the weekend at a WWE live event in Canada. The faced Diego and El Torito in a losing effort.

Justin Gabriel
While he is a reliable performer who does not cause trouble backstage, Justin Gabriel was one of the candidates to be on the receiving end of a release from WWE when the company was doing budget cuts. He apparently has survived the cuts and will remain with the company for the time being. It is interesting to note that Gabriel has not been utilized on Monday Night Raw since last September.
July 27, 2014
Alex Riley
Since WWE was doing budget cuts left and right in order to reduce the millions of dollars that they're losing this year, several names were mentioned as possible candidates for a release. Alex Riley was once rumored to be someone on the chopping board, but it looks like the commentator has made the cut. Unless WWE decides to get rid of the kickoff shows, Riley should remain with the company.
July 26, 2014
JTG
While morale is really low backstage due to the recent and severe drop in royalty checks, WWE performers are not speaking out on the matter because they are afraid of Vince McMahon. Many saw what happened to JTG when he voiced his opinion about low pay per view bonus checks. The former Cryme Tyme member was buried for more than a year and recently was given a release form his contract.
July 14, 2014
Rock
It is no secret that WWE would love for the Rock to be the centerpiece attraction at Wrestlemania 31. However, the possibility of that happening is becoming more and more unclear by the day. The studios have decided to move the release date of Fast and Furious 7, which features Rock in a big role, up a bit. It will now be shown in the theaters a few days after Wrestlemania. That means that the Rock will be needed to travel the world to do promotion for the film. His availability to WWE is in question.
July 10, 2014
Vince McMahon
When WWE stocks tanked really badly earlier this year, there were rumors floating around that Vince McMahon wanted his company to cut approximately $20 million in spending. That number has now been confirmed. No word yet on how close WWE has gotten to that goal, but the release of several performers from their contracts helped out quite a bit. More wrestlers could be let go in the near future to get closer to the $20 million mark.
July 7, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Anyone that follows professional wrestling closely, knows that WWE performers spend a ridiculous amount of time on the road for the company. Vickie Guerrero became one of the latest people to grow weary of that lifestyle and requested her release from her contract. Now that she is free of that hectic obligation, the former WWE diva is now on vacation in Hawaii.
July 6, 2014
Vince McMahon
Since the company has been undergoing budget cuts, a lot of things are changing in WWE. In addition to several long time performers being given a release from their contract, Vince McMahon and company have also scaled things back on the WWE Network. Tough Enough has been pushed back, and there might not be a second season of Legends House. At one point in time, it was a certainty that the show would be receiving another season.
July 6, 2014
David Otunga
Earlier in this week, Zack Ryder revealed to fans that WWE is no longer selling his merchandise. The belief is that it is a part of the company's plan to diminish his name value for when they decide to release him from his contract. Since the start of the year, Ryder has only been utilized eight times on television, all of which were losses. He hasn't had a victory on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown since December of 2012, when he pinned David Otunga on Raw.
July 5, 2014
Cameron
Sensing that they were going to receive quite a bit of backlash for overreacting to the arrest and having double standards for their performers, WWE has decided to reinstate Emma after giving her a release earlier in the day. Some have cited the previous arrest of Jack Swagger and Cameron, who actually attempted to bribe a police officer, as a reason why WWE was forced to change their minds.
July 2, 2014
Emma
A day after she was arrested for shoplifting, WWE has released Emma from her contract. There were those in the company that believed that she would be allowed to ride out the storm because the item stolen was not very expensive, but it turns out that Vince McMahon and company needed to make an example of her. Since she was not very high up on the card, it was easier for WWE to release her.
July 2, 2014
Jillian Hall
Through social media, Jillian Hall revealed to her fans that she is back to working on an autobiography. There is some skepticism as to how well the book will sell, as her name value drops the longer she has been away from WWE. It has been nearly four years since her release from the company. It also does not appear to be much interest from TNA in signing her, either. That will make it much more difficult for her to move the books.
June 29, 2014
Bo Dallas
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Bo Dallas had gotten married. Now, the identity of the bride has been discovered. It's Sarah Backman, a former WWE developmental diva. She's more known to the world as one of the top female arm wrestlers of all time. Sarah requested her release from the company a couple of months back after having quite the lackluster tenure in the developmental program.
June 28, 2014
Evan Bourne
When he received his release from WWE, Evan Bourne immediately contacted ROH and told them that he was available for work. ROH, however, took the smart approach and contacted WWE to get things in writing. During the conversation, WWE informed ROH that Bourne has not been cleared to work for their company. Bourne was flown out to the show, but had to remain backstage.
June 27, 2014
Josh Mathews
Yesterday, Josh Mathews received his release from WWE, losing his dream job because the company needed to save money. The announcer decided that he was not going to just sit around and mope. Instead, Mathews is backstage at the Impact Wrestling taping, which is taking place in New York City. The belief is that he is gauging to see if there is any interest from TNA in signing him to a contract.
June 26, 2014
Josh Mathews
It looks like WWE is not done handing out pink slips to their employees. Josh Mathews becomes the latest person to receive a release from the company. He was a bit of a utility person backstage, but most will remember him as an interviewer. Locker room morale might take a bit of a hit since Mathews was well liked and his enthusiasm for the WWE product was a bit infectious.
June 25, 2014
Drew McIntyre
Since WWE owns the name, Jinder Mahal is going by a different moniker now that he has been given a release and is looking for work on the independent wrestling circuit. He will now be known as Raj Singh. While he is taking bookings through an agent, it's interesting to note that he has not teamed up with Drew McIntyre in an attempt to be signed as a package.
June 24, 2014
JTG
When WWE announced that they were releasing several performers from their main roster earlier this month, it caught a few of them by surprise. JTG, however, was well prepared for his release. He had been expecting it for quite some time now. There was an incident a while back where he received major backstage heat from management for speaking out about payment. Since then, his days with WWE were numbered. JTG recently revealed to TMZ that he had started planning around the release way before it took place.
June 23, 2014
Great Muta
While WWE did not feel that he was good enough for the main roster, Yoshi Tatsu still has a couple of suitors left in the industry. Shortly after his contract release, the Japanese star was contacted by All Japan Pro Wrestling and Wrestle-1, which is owned by the Great Muta, about returning to his home country. Rumors are floating around that Tatsu would prefer to stay in the United States, so he may explore his options here first before making a decision to return home.
June 23, 2014
Bobby Lashley
A big reason why Bobby Lashley was given the TNA World Heavyweight Championship this week is because he is viewed as a marketing asset. The company immediately sent out a press release to inform them that Lashley had become the new champion. TNA is touting his accomplishments as a collegiate athlete, military personnel, mixed martial arts and professional wrestling to the media.
June 20, 2014
Drew McIntyre
As many of you already know by now, Drew McIntyre, who was once viewed as a future world champion in WWE by both Vince McMahon and the fans, received his release from the company earlier this month. The talented and underrated performer will now be forced to use a different name if he wishes to continue in the professional wrestling industry because WWE owns the trademark. The belief is that he will wrestle under his real name for the time being.

May 4, 2014
Heath Slater
When WWE started airing videos on Monday Night Raw to tease the eventual arrival of Adam Rose to the main roster, a lot of fans wondered which side of the fence that the developmental wrestler will be on. It appears that management will be utilizing Rose as a baby face, as he worked that role at a live event over the weekend against Heath Slater.
April 28, 2014
Roman Reigns

On WWE Main Event, Hornswoggle teamed up with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre, which has caused some speculations to arise.

However, his absence on this show was unrelated, as Slater missed the show because he is heading to Saudi Arabia for a tour with WWE.
April 17, 2014
Heath Slater
Since the company needs room for all the new stars that they are bringing up from the developmental program, WWE is expected to allow several of the veteran performers to leave the company soon.

April 14, 2014

There are also four spots available for last minute entrants.
March 25, 2014
Jinder Mahal
Earlier in the year, it was hard to fathom that 3MB would be working a match at Wrestlemania 30 because Drew McIntyre, Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal have been barely used by WWE in relevant roles. However, all three are now confirmed for the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal. The move should appease Slater a bit, as he has been growing a bit frustrated backstage.
March 19, 2014
Heath Slater
There are talks going around that Heath Slater could be leaving WWE whenever his contract expires.

Diamond Dallas Page
"I thought it was awesome. I love the kid. He was having the time of his life because he was a fan of all of us. So he couldn't wait for the Vader Bomb or the Diamond Cutter. I mean he loved it. And he's a good kid, he's a damn good worker. I hope at some point he actually gets the push. He could back it up because he can talk and he can work." - Diamond Dallas Page on how Heath Slater is backstage
