    This thread is fairly simple. I will pick a person, and the next guy says he should be cut or pushed, and why. MAKE SURE YOU ELABORATE! Say why he should be cut or pushed, and if you said pushed, tell us how! Once you talk about the current topic, post the next guy we should talk about.

    Let's start with... Shelton Benjamin

    Shelton Benjamin- Push him, for the love of god push him!!!, he is one of the best pure athletes in the company, and is extremely fun to watch, when not getting squashed his matches are great, I would love to see him and Jeff Hardy feud over the IC title for the next couple of months, with the feud ending with a Ladder match, and Shelton winning of couse;)

    the next guy is...Finley

    Finlay- I say yes for a run at the US title if Matt Hardy is to win it at Unforgiven, He isn't a bad wrestler and has had his share of decent matches, His mic work is whack but big deal if it's in the Mid-Card. The Mid-Card on SD! is weak anyways and Finlay is one of the more watchable, Chris Masters was likely going to be in that spot since he is out now I say give it to Finlay.

    Next is Carlito..Should he get a push to main event status?

    Carlito: Cut him. He's talented, but not so much that he stands out. I really question his passion for this business. I think he needs to go elsewhere and maybe come back when he finds what he needs.

    Cut him. Not that Crazy can't be entertaining, but he's been jobbed out so much that it's hard to take him seriously as any kind of contender. I'd much rather see someone like Cody Rhodes get an IC push rather than someone like Super Crazy.

    Chuck Palumbo

    Push him. I really see Chuck Palumbo as a potential title winner this time around. His in ring work has really impressed me lately. I agree that the gimmick has been done before with taker, but I think he can make this one his own.

    Tommy Dreamer

    Chuck Palumbo: Cut him, cut him, cut him. The black hole of charisma is so bad that he makes Mark Henry look like The Rock. I can't believe he still has a job.

    Chuck Palumbo-Push Him- I think that as a wrestler his in ring skills have gotten better and smackdown is a great place for him to be. I'd say have him keep going with a feud against Chris masters and then have him do a feud against someone like Finlay.
    The next person to push or cut is... Kenny Dykstra

    Tommy Dreamer- push him towards an wwECW title run or at least a good feud if Burke wins the title tonight. Dreamer had a very good chant going this week on ECW on Sci-Fi and the crowd gets behind him. Let him get a glory run before he decides to go back to being fulltime behind the scenes.

    next person Big Daddy V

    Tommy Dreamer- This is a tough one for me, cause I love Dreamer, buy I think his best days are behind him so I'm going to have to say Cut him, I think he could be put to better use outside of the ring rather than in it

    Time to clean this thread up a bit.

    Santino Marella: CUT HIM!!! His gimmick is painful and his in-ring work isn't much better. And this whole storyline with Maria is getting really annoying. Ship him back to OVW where at least he had a decent gimmick.


    Kenny Dykstra: PUSH HIM!!! With the decent amount of training this good actually be a pretty good wrestler. But WWE sticks him in a dead-end feud with Chuck Palumbo.


    Big Daddy V: CUT HIM!!! This guy cannot wrestle, is extremely painful to look at, has bad mic skills, and can't last longer than 5 minutes in a match. FIRE HIM!


    Jimmy Wang Yang: PUSH HIM!!! This guy is very entertaining in the ring and could possibly save the cruiserwight division.



    Next up: Cody Rhodes!

    push him because for either cruserweight title or just put in sum low mid card status fueds like with kenny dykstra or funaki lol or hardcore holly ( when he comes back) then this is a big maybe if he gets pops and gets over with the fans, maybe title shots for US title but not winning obviously.

    Push him- I know I said in a different thread that he should be released, but now that I think about it, he could be shipped over to Smackdown to increase their product. Seperate the WGTT, Shelton's too good to be stuck in a tag team. Charlie Haas could either be put in US title division or you could put him in another tag team. It seems to me as if Charlie Haas is a tag team specialist. He's been in three good tag teams (w/ Benjamin, Rico, and Holly). He could really be helpful to some struggling guys like Kenny Dykstra, now that could be a good tag team. Feel free to comment on this theory: A Charlie Haas/Kenny Dykstra tag team.
    Now, push or cut: Daivari

    Charlie Hass - Cut him. The recent wellness incident is pretty much the final straw. WGTT are great, but Shelton is by far the standout of the team, and i just feel he has brought in short term to boost the lackluster tag division. Also, as hes shown in the past he cant get over as a singles guy, and tag teams don't stay around forever. Dont get me wrong, the guy can wrestle, but he's not going anywhere so use the wellness incident to get rid of him and push Shelton.

    Next up - The Boogeyman.

  16. Cut him. He has no chance at a title, it's basically a lost cause.

    Kevin Thorn

    Davari - Push him, but as a manager. He is sooo much better on the mike than in the ring, and he could be a priceless talent to the company..if used right. But jobbing him out on Heat is not the right way to go. He put over Hassan, Khali and could do the same with others. He has the potential to be the anti-American Jim Cornette. But hes going nowhere in the ring.

    Keeping the boards clean, still THE BOOGEYMAN

    Who are you referring to, Davari or the Boogeyman. Edit your post accordingly please.

    As for Kevin Thorn, i think they should Push him, if they keep the strap on Punk i think he could have a decent feud with him for the strap. And as for Vince pushing big guys, id rather see him get pushed over Big daddy V, at least he has some in-ring skills and a watchable gimmick. Plus, supernatuaral gimmicks always go over well with the fans.

    Next up, either Davari or the boogeyman, depending on who Captain Charisma's earlier post was referring too.

  20. the boogeyman- push him, but change the gimmick the wwe doesn't need someone who scares little kids, they already have the great khali for that. remember a few weeks ago, the boogeyman vs. john morrison that match showcased his in-ring ability and thats why he deserves a new gimmick.

    up for discussion: nunzio

    Okay. I heard a lot of names being thrown in here so I'm summing it up to the best that I can.

    Santino Marella- Cut him. Boring to watch in the ring. And the "obsessive, jealous, and/or abusive" boyfriend thing they got with him and Maria, it's been done to death. Cut him loose.

    Chuck Palumbo- Cut him. His gimmick is just a cheap rip-off of the American Badass gimmick that Taker once had. At least Taker made that gimmick work.
    But Palumbo, no. Cut him.

    Kenny Dykstra- Push him. He's got skill and could be big if he's pushed the right way. So I say push him.

    Tommy Dreamer- Keep him. I know a lot of the originals are gone but I just can't bring myself to do it. I have to keep him.

    Big Daddy V- Cut him. I'm sick of the WWE's obsession with monsters in the ring. The line needs to be drawn somewhere. So cut him.

    Carlito- Cut him. They tried everything with this guy, even a face turn and nothing has worked. And honestly, Triple H vs Carlito? Triple H would kill him.

    Finlay- Keep him. He's really not that bad in the ring.

    Jimmy Wang Yang- Only reason I'd keep him is because for some reason, crowd seems to like him. If that weren't a factor along with him having some skill, I'd say cut him.

    Shelton Benjamin- Whatever Benjamin once had during his first singles push, it's gone. And I don't know whether he can have it back. So I'd say unless in a tag team, cut him.

    Kevin Thorn- Cut him. I haven't been that impressed with the guy. Wasn't impressed with him as Mordecai and not now either.

    Boogeyman- Cut him. The gimmick is comedic and because of that, not even a heel turn would be possible for him. And his skill in the ring is unimpressive.

    Davari- Cut him. Without Hassan or Khali, there is no point to him at all. Cut him loose.


    And some other ones that I want to throw on the cut or push list.

    Snitsky, Matt Striker, Regal, Ron Simmons.

    Before, I'd say to cut Stevie but you know what, he's not bad in the matches that he's had. I see some potential for him so keep him.

    The Miz, this chick magnet gimmick just isn't working and he's not that great in the ring. I'm saying and it's a borderline decision because if his gimmick is changed, keep him. Otherwise, cut him.


    Okay. To add to the list. Jamie Noble and Shannon Moore, Val Venis, The Highlanders

    Noble is the brains behind the whole cruiserweight division, Push him to the moon and I guarentee that the fans will respond, just like with the Nidia gimmick.

    Shannon Moore is a guy who for some reason, I like. He's not that bad in the ring or on the Mic, and he's always improving. Push him.

    Val is over the hill, so to speak, but can still put on a good match. He'll slide into an office job and stay behind the scenes.

    Highlanders... meh. What happened to these guys? Cut them.
