World Wrestling Entertainment today announced the releases of Shad Gaspard, Vance Archer, Caylen Croft, Luke Gallows, Tiffany, and Jillian Hall. As usual, WWE wishes them the best in their future endeavors.
None of the releases are especially surprising. Shad was doomed as soon as Cryme Tyme disbanded. It was a similar fate for Luke Gallows, the former Festus, once the Straight Edge Society broke up. Archer had been teaming with Curt Hawkins on Smackdown, but the duo never gained any momentum. Croft is one half of the Dudebusters, another tag team that never blossomed.
If WWE pushed its tag team division a bit more, perhaps there would still be jobs for Archer, Croft and Shad.
