Once Again the WWE Cuts a Bunch of Talent Just Before Christmas

In an annual tradition worthy of Scrooge, the WWE released a bunch of talent right before the holidays. The Ascension, Viktor (Ryan Parmeter) and Konnor (Eric Thompson), were released. The duo hadnít been on TV for a while and couldnít even get on WWE Main Event. The two were a major part of the early days of NXT's tag team division. They were called up to the main roster after three years in FCW/NXT and were given a huge initial push due to them looking like Demolition and the Road Warriors. That push ended after a month and they spend five years on the main roster but never came close to getting the tag titles. Viktor had been in the WWE system since 2005 while Konnor was a Stampede Wrestling/Hart Dungeon alumnus who had been in the WWE system since 2011 and actually beat Seth Rollins for the FCW heavyweight title back in 2012. Luke Harper (Jonathan Huber) and Sin Cara (Jorge Arias) were cut the same day. Both had asked for their releases and finally got them. Harper returned to WWE television in September and was involved in a program with Erick Rowan against Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan but hadnít been seen on TV since. His last match was in the battle royal on the Crown Jewel pre-show on October 31. Harper applied to trademark his former name Brodie Lee last month. He was regarded as a ring general in WWE but Vince soured on him because he couldnít do a Southern accent and his character was a southerner. He and Rowan were booked together and that kind of hurt Harper since when Rowan was injured he disappeared from TV. Harperís solo run wasnít well received either. Sin Cara had been in the WWE system for a while and got the Sin Cara character after Mistico left the company. There were backstage issues with Arias as well since he got into few fights, one with Simon Gotch, which led to Gotch getting cut eventually. All of them have 90 day no compete clauses but for some reason Sin Cara made an appearance at an AAA event in full mask using the name in Mexico. WWE owns the name and the mask so expect a legal issue between AAA and the WWE.
