WWE has employed many a great wrestler over the years. However, whilst some of these wrestlers instinctively knew how to play the game (pun intended) and subsequently prospered both in front of AND behind the cameras, many others made bad business decisions, burned bridges that didnt need burning and effectively threw away their legacies in the process. Then there are the guys that have simply been away too long. Released after their push faltered, or dropped as their characters stagnated, these are red-hot names that could still mean top dollar to WWE if they were promoted in the right way. Accompanying each name on this list of WWE exiles is a fantasy booking idea, just a random, throwaway suggestion as to how the company might maximise the potential of each wayward superstar and translate either nostalgia, or even unfinished business, into big big bucks. These are just the thoughts of a fan, nothing more (so keep your hate mail to yourself). Here's 10 WWE exiles that could (in some cases, should) be doing business with WWE in the very near future...
I am a professional author and lifelong comic books/pro wrestling fan. I also work as a journalist as well as writing comic books (I also draw), screenplays, stage plays, songs and prose fiction.
I don't generally read or reply to comments here on What Culture (too many trolls!), but if you follow my Twitter (@heyquicksilver), I'll talk to you all day long!
If you are interested in reading more of my stuff, you can find it on http://quicksilverstories.weebly.com/ (my personal site, which has other wrestling/comics/pop culture stuff on it).
I also write for FLiCK http://www.flickonline.co.uk/flicktion, which is the best place to read my fiction work.
Oh yeah - I'm about to become a Dad for the first time, so if my stuff seems more sentimental than usual - blame it on that!
Finally, I sincerely appreciate every single read I get. So if you're reading this, thank you, you've made me feel like Shakespeare for a day! (see what I mean?)
