The smelly stench of 15 April's 'Black Thursday' exodus - not to mention last year's 15 April 'Black Wednesday' - still leaves a bad taste in the mouth, but many are predicting WWE might make a considerable U-turn and quickly rehire at least one of the most recently released masses. After all, it wouldn't be the first time this company has terminated a talent's contract, briefly mulled things over and then hastily reversed their decision.
WWE do this a lot.
The reasons aren't always simple (this is pro wrestling - when is anything ever simple?), and the promotion don't always deserve sh*t from fans for ruthlessly canning a worker. Sometimes, they can point the finger of blame at wrestlers themselves for their behaviour. That's all well and good... until Vince McMahon realises he wants them back on the road ASAP.
Given the recent reports that Zelina Vega is set to return to WWE after being canned last November, now's the perfect time to revisit some of those other talents whose time away from WWE was a relatively brief one.
Everyone here was ousted from the company sphere for a few months at best before being welcomed back from their future endeavours like nothing had happened. Some others barely even had time to line up work elsewhere before getting the call to make their return.

Again, nothing is ever simple in this wacky biz...
