It is very difficult to become a professional wrestler in the WWE and just as hard to stay a professional wrestler in the WWE.
We have seen many wrestlers come and go over the last five years. Many we remember, and many we forget.
I guarantee that the current WWE roster is not going to be the same in five years. Here is a look at five WWE wrestlers who won't be in the company half a decade from now.
Chris Jericho is most known for leaving the WWE for a significant amount of time and then making a huge return.
There has been some speculation that Jericho will soon leave the company.
At 41 years old, Jericho won't be able to be a consistent in-ring performer for much longer. If he leaves the company again and wants to make a return, he will most likely come back and leave again before five years are up.
The biggest reason that Jericho will not be in the WWE five years from now is because of his talent outside of the ring. He is much more than just a WWE wrestler. Jericho has many different things going for him outside of wrestling, such as being the lead singer of the band Fozzy.
It feels like Evan Bourne has violated the WWE's wellness program 10 times this past year.
Before all the suspensions, Bourne was helping the tag team division become relevant again. He is an exciting, high-flying superstar with a unique skill set, and the fans love to watch him wrestle.
However, he clearly does not learn from his mistakes and will most likely violate the wellness program once again. This time, it will cost him his roster spot.
I was a very big fan of Cryme Tyme. I liked the balance of the big man Shad and the athletic guy, JTG.
Cryme Tyme had a nice run in the WWE, but like many recent tag teams, they didn't last long and split up. Shad is no longer in the WWE, and since their break up, JTG has been nothing more than a jobber.
In fact, the only "tyme" we see JTG is when he is being used in a squash match for guys like Brodus Clay and Ryback.
Unless Shad returns to the company in the next five years, JTG won't be around much longer.
Rey Mysterio is arguably among the Top 10 greatest WWE superstars of all time. He has always been a huge fan favorite and gets a nice pop every single time he comes to the ring.
Unfortunately, Mysterio's career is coming to an end. He is a high-flying superstar who has struggled to stay healthy lately. It's only a matter of time before he hangs up his mask.
Mysterio will retire five years from now.
Tyson Kidd is a very talented in-ring wrestler. He is technically sound but has not been able to find a solid gimmick or get a strong push.
Kidd has to be getting frustrated. I think that he will choose to leave the WWE and take his talents to TNA or another wrestling company.
Maybe Kidd will be able to prosper outside of the WWE.
I don't think that the Undertaker will ever officially retire. He will continue to wrestle at WrestleMania and other random times throughout the years. The Deadman will never die.
