July 19th is almost upon us. On that night, World Wrestling Entertainment will once again split into two separate entities as the brand split returns to our screens. Two separate rosters will move the two shows forward, and Dave Meltzer among others has been reporting that WWE has been contacting a plethora of former stars about returning to bulk up the rosters.

Some of the names mentioned include Kurt Angle, Carlito, Rey Mysterio and Bastion Booger, except not Bastion Booger. Chris Masters, Shelton Benjamin, Tajiri and more could also return to full time WWE programming. Basically, if you were with the company around 2004 and 2005 you should sit by your phone.

There is no doubting that seeing a small number of old faces return for another ride on the merry-go-round would be fun. Carlito and Benjamin in particular still have great value to WWE, and men such as MVP and Jeff Hardy also felt like they left before they could reach their peak popularity.

There will be a huge amount of names rumoured, but a certain number simply should not return. Whether this is because no-one truly wants to see them back or they are better off outside of WWE for now, here are 10 men that definitely should not return once the brand split comes back.
