I think from WWE's perspective, they just don't need a jobber under contract.  Any indy wrestler would give their left nut for an opportunity to job on Raw or SD! and then WWE only has to toss them like $50 for that night, so why pay someone a downside guarantee?  The business has changed so much from the '80s when jobber matches were routine, but none of those guys were under contract either.  Maybe Barry Horowitz finally got himself a deal after the Chris Candido win, but maybe not.  And as tamalie pointed out, that was actually close to the end for Horowitz in the WWF too. 

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
