"Happy Thanksgiving—and by the way, you're fired."
I would imagine that is how it went down, as WWE released six superstars on November 19, 2010. Shad Gaspard, Tiffany, Caylen Croft, Luke Gallows, Vance Archer and Jillian Hall have all been given the boot and wished the best in their future endeavors.
The first release we have is Shad Gaspard. No huge surprise here, Cryme Tyme broke up in Early 2010 and more-or-less faded into oblivion. It seemed as though WWE was holding onto him because of his size, however clearly there was nothing for Shad to do.
Second, we have Tiffany. Again, no huge surprise. Given her recent arrest combined with the fact that she is, well, just not that good, this comes as no shock. Her husband Drew McIntyre is still with WWE.
The third superstar to be released was Caylen Croft. One half of the legendary tag team The Dudebusters has been fired. He will go down in history with the likes of Braden Walker and Colin Delany, jobbers who never really mattered. Trent Barretta, the other half of The Dudebusters, is still with WWE, however.
Luke Gallows was the fourth to be released and is the most surprising on the list. Hot off the heels of a run in the main event stable the Straight Edge Society, Gallows followed Serena out the WWE door. CM Punk, however, is not the only Straight Edge Society member left, though, as Joey Mercury is still with WWE and recovering from a torn pectoral which required surgery.
The next superstar sent to the chopping block was Vance Archer. Not a massive shock, Archer was not being used regularly on TV and was just dead weight for WWE to carry.
The last superstar released was former WWE Divas Champion Jillian Hall. Since being moved to Raw, Hall was never used in a legitimate TV role, so it comes as no surprise she was cut by WWE. Of course, this means no more holiday albums to look forward to.
