Polumbo sucked, but London had something to offer, easily as much as Evan Bourne and I think London as a heel with his BEARD~ would have been cool.

After reading about the financial disclosures I'm not surprised. We may be hearing about a lot more to come.

This will be the second time Palumbo has been released by my count. I read somewhere that Palumbo's contract actually expired and WWE decided not to renew it as opposed to him getting the axe like London did. Both good talents in my book, but if they are not being used, then why bother keeping them? Palumbo is already working in Mexico anyways, isn't he? I expect a few more cuts to be made. Possibly Elijah Burke, Hardcore Holly, & Kevin Thorn.

Paul London is a very good wrestler in my opinion, but with the way the WWE works, I was expecting him to be released sometime.

As for Chuck Palumbo, he sucked in WWE, he will suck wherever else he wrestles, and he will always suck. :)

Paul London i believe is an amazing athlete,one of the most talented U.S wrestlers and still improving.I would wholly blame WWE creative or the lack of a cruiserweight title for not turning him into the next Misterio/Michaels etc,surely has the talent to flourish anywhere he wants.

Chuck Palumbo made great strides after his time in AJPW,he didnt look such a stiff and would have made an ok mid card heel,certainly better than many who are still on the active roster at Stamford.However just as they start working well building his character they uneccesarily have him job left right and centre without reason,ruining any buildup,credibility and most importnatly viewer interest,and its all downhill from there for the guy.

Chuck Palumbo was pretty awful for almost all of his Smackdown run. He had generic big man matches, none of which stood out, and was one of THE worst promos in recent years. All I remember him doing was being involved in that nifty little Jamie/Michelle angle, but it was through absolutely no fault of his own.

I think London will either go to TNA or back to ROH. he would be a good addition to the x division an it would be good to see him wrestle at 100% his ability rather than 45%

So far the two releases that has come one supprised me and one well didn't really supprise me. For me the release of Paul London was a big supprise. I was hoping that he would have somehow got drafted to smackdown and feuded with The Brian Kendrick but ah well, he might be brought back (ala Cryme time R truth ect) down the road.

Chucky C that was not a supprise. I mean when he first came back he was some what interesting.... For five minutes, but he became one of those bland guys who would appear in the background every now and then. In other words the wrestlings answer to an Extra. Maybe he wants to go for the chance to beat Dustin's hired and Released record.

I knew Paul London's release was gonna happen soon, while to be honest I forgot Chuck Palumbo even worked for WWE.

The trouble is that TNA's X Division is not the force it once was when AJ,Daniels and Joe were headlining it,it lacks a big personality to lead it up and make the division look important the way the three previously mentioned wrestlers did when they were in the division.

Also what makes you so certain that TNA wrestlers all wrestle to 100% of their ability?

The only positive for Chuck is we might see another tag team reunion of Kip and Chuck as the Beautiful People's tag team!

These sorts of posts are the reason that you tend to get Mocked, TWP - NOBODY knows what % of work is given by any worker in either WWE or TNA, and guessing/giving numbers based on presumptions made because of bias against/towards certain companies won't give you any more credibility that somebody saying 'LOL TNA/WWE ROX' without actually having anything else constructive to say about it.

Applying a little thought before pressing the reply button can save you a whole heap of trouble! :D

Not suprised, London was said to be in the bad books for a while so that was a logical thing to happen with cost cutting on the minds of WWE. Chuch has done sod all for months now so again no suprise, i'd have never brought him back in the first place as I always though he was piss poor

Didn't he laugh at Vince during the boss' breakdown leading to the limo angle?

Yep and he was in deep water for it as all the wrestlers were meant to be somber as Vince walked past, London though did that huge grin as Vince looked at him

No huge losses but it's a big shame London went, I always preferred him to Kendrick, that did change with Kendricks Smackdown push but still given a push he could've got somewhere.
