WWE Superstars on the Chopping Block

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
In response to Thom Hodkinson's article on potential WWE releases http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/commun...-YOU-RE-FIRED!, I have decided to make my prediction on WWE Superstars who are on shaky ground. Most point to the lower card Superstars and Divas, but there are several surprises on the list as I dissect the odds of these aforementioned Superstars and Divas and so, let's get to the list!

ALEX RILEY

The Varsity Villain made his debut as The Miz' lackey and was on his way to become a reliable mid-card babyface until his backstage incident with John Cena dashed his hopes. I would be surprised if Riley lasted until this fall.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

ANTONIO CESARO
The former Ring of Honor standout and current United States Champion has been mired in a funk as of late due to Vince McMahon not high on him and the WrestleMania 29 hype. But still, Cesaro is not in danger of losing his job, yet.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: LOW

CODY RHODES
Ever since his lengthy Intercontinental Champion ended last spring, Rhodes has been slumping due to backstage heat for failing his Wellness Test. Not even his on-again, off-again partnership with Damien Sandow could save his struggling career. Now that the WWE plans on focusing on Sandow for a singles push, the same cannot be said for the son of Dusty Rhodes
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

CURT HAWKINS
When was the last time that the former Edgehead has been on TV?
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

DAVID OTUNGA
The Harvard alum has been MIA since his confidant John Laurinaitis has been "fired" last summer. But due to his Hollywood connections (he's the boyfriend of former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson), he's still expected to survive the latest round of cuts.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: LOW

DERRICK BATEMAN
Who?
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

EPICO & PRIMO
Even though they're pretty much relegated to competing on Superstars and handicap matches, the lack of true tag teams on the roster should spare them from the chopping block.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: MODERATE

EVAN BOURNE
The high-flier has been on the shelf with an injury and with two Wellness strikes against him, Bourne's days in WWE could be numbered
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

EZEKIEL JACKSON
The Guyanese Grappler has been nowhere to be found since last summer.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

THE GREAT KHALI
As silly as his character may be, being the only WWE Superstar from India isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: LOW

HEATH SLATER
This year's Brooklyn Brawler, Slater has found a niche as the leader of 3MB and while he's been losing as of late, don't expect Slater to get the ax anytime soon (or his bandmates Jinder Mahal or Drew McIntyre, for that matter).
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: LOW

HORNSWOGGLE
As much as most of the IWC find him annoying, Hornswoggle has a purpose: to entertain the kids.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: LOW

HUNICO & CAMACHO
These two men haven't been seen since last fall.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

JTG
Although the former Cryme Tyme member has been relegated to Superstars as of late, JTG is one of the reliable jobbers on the roster and so, it could go either way.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: MODERATE

JUSTIN GABRIEL
Another lesser-used high-flying babyfaces, Gabriel should be safe due to his ties to his native South Africa.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: LOW

MICHAEL McGILLICUTTY
Joe Hennig's son may be a likely candidate to get released but not right now.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: MODERATE

TED DiBIASE, JR.
The former Legacy has been MIA since last fall and it's possible that the son of the Million Dollar Man might retire in the very near future.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

TENSAI
The former monster is finally finding his niche as a foil to Brodus Clay and so the jury's still out for Tensai.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: MODERATE

YOSHI TATSU
The Japanese high-flyer is normally a leading candidate to get cut but with Tyson Kidd's injury, Tatsu should be safe--for now.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: MODERATE

ZACK RYDER
Like Hawkins, Ryder hasn't fared much better but at least he should be spared from being released.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: MODERATE

ALICIA FOX
The Foxy One hasn't been used much as of late and so expected her to leave on her own terms.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

AKSANA
The Lithuanian beauty has had her role reduced when the Bella Twins returned from their year-long sabbatical.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

SCOTT STANFORD
Stanford's role has been reduced since Tony Dawson was hired.
ODDS ON BEING FIRED: HIGH

    Cody Rhodes ain't goin nowhere and Yoshi is the only Asian guy right now. Asides from them, Hennig and Cesaro, I could care less if the rest of that list gets fired.

    cody id one of the mid-card greats and has about0.0000000001% chance of being fired. and even that is if he goes up to the boss and calls him a f***ing coward and a coffin dodger! but after that he will be given a secondchance in wwe. believe me this guy aint going nowhere for a long time.

    Well, there's always surprise cuts in the WWE. Remember Maria, Mickie James, and Sheldon Benjamin in 2010, Melina in 2011, and Kelly Kelly in 2012? If Cody Rhodes got "future endeavored," he would not be missed due to the WWE already having a number of reliable heels.

    cesaro and cody won't be going anywhere hhh is high on cesaro. im hoping for a cody vs ziggler fued still think they shouldn't of stopped cody's undashing gimmick that made him main event material in my eyes.

    Some very good points raised, although I should point out that Great Khali isn't the only Indian WWE Superstar as Jinder Mahal is billed as being from India... I know, I know, he's actually Canadian. But if the WWE are happy to call Santino Marella Italian, then so be it! I did wonder about Gabriel & McGillicutty, but I feel that they do have a chance on NXT

    I know that Triple H likes Antonio Cesaro but I did hear a rumor that The Game doesn't like Cody Rhodes. We shall see...

    dusty runs NXT, so we can consider him an executive in WWE.

    no way Cody goes anywhere unless it is on his own terms.
