With Umaga gone (and that was a tough one to predict) we should have a contest to see eho can correctly guess the next victim.  Here's my top 5 in order of likelihood to go:

1. Ricky Ortiz - He got the kiss of death.  Developmental prospect called up with little fanfare and a goofy gimmick, got a slight shove (not a push) in ECW that was cut short when they apparently lost faith in him, sent to SD! anyway when he really could've used more time learning in ECW, buried more there and turned heel without anyone even noticing, now with a higher profile brand which is absolutely the last place you want to be when you're a recent call-up who's not over and not being used.  It's the Perfect Storm Towards Endeavordom.

2. Sim Snuka - Part of The Legacy angle that was dropped suddenly months ago, hasn't been on TV since, the other guy involved (Manu) is already long gone, and he almost let Undertaker break his neck at Wrestlemania.  He's fucked.

3. Curt Hawkins - Another guy moved to SD! in the draft, but he hasn't even been used on TV at all since then.  Even Zack Ryder's in trouble with his goofy gimmick, but Hawkins has no chance. 

4. Jesse - Festus has become an afterthought and he was the part of the team that Creative actually liked.  Jesse hasn't been on TV since the draft and split with Festus, and he's really small and has no chance in singles competition.  Being Terry Gordy's son and having Michael Hayes watch his back has helped him keep his job so far, but that won't last forever.

5. Jimmy Wang Yang - Stands around in jeans during backstage skits.  Doesn't seem like they need to pay him to do that.  His gimmcik has long since run its course, there's no cruiserweight division anymore, and even though he's not in particularly good shape he has a Wellness Policy violation against him.  The only thing helping him is that he's been around for a long time and they've just gotten used to him being there doing nothing, but he can't stay under the radar much longer. 

Honorable Mention: Brian Kendrick, Ezekiel Jackson, D.J. Gabriel, Bella Twins, Great Khali, Shad Gaspard, Kung Fu Naki, Festus, Zack Ryder

I would move Snuka up to # 1 on the future doomed list. I want to add Chavo up to # 2. I think that He's gone soon.

Hawkins was the first name that came to mind, he's so forgettable he becomes memorable for being forgettable.  Katie Lea might be on the hook, she doesn't have the blonde bimbo look Vince wanks over, shame though cos she's a hottie.  They always seem to be threatening to fire Shad.  And you've got to think Jillian Hall's fifteen minutes ran out at the same time as Brooke Hogan's.

All really believable choices.

I say of them, in the top 3 to go are Tony Atlas (he's already being dumped by GorillaGuy), Curt Hawkins, and Sim Snuka.

Kung Fu Naki or Funaki, whatever name he goes by these days.
The Kung Fu persona never caught on.

Festus. You can only tagteam  with Goldust & Hormswoggle for so long.

Jack Swagger. He hasn't improved & they refuse to team him with a
manager, to cut promos for him. He'd be better off on the indy circuit
and maybe improving to the point where he earns another shot in the WWE.

Eziekiel Jackson, Is this guy still with the company ? He hasn't been used since the draft.

You're crazy if you think they're going to release Swagger.

He's being groomed for big things.

Yeah, I gotta believe we're going to see a HHH-Swagger ppv match within a year. Like JR says 'HE'S A HOSS!'

Yeah, I agree with Chavo getting cut. Probably be in TNA before the end of the year.

My 'dark horses' would be Batista, Kane, and Mark Henry.

I think Kane is too well respected by Vince to cut Him. I could see Him as an agent in the future.

I can see chavo sent down to FCW to become a trainer.

Outside of the dark horses list & Swagger everyone else is believeable to me.

I think Chavo has a job as long as he wants one, although not necessarily as a wrestler.

Snuka may be gone but honestly, 'Taker's nosedive at WM wasn't Snukas fault... he tries to rush and catch him once he realizes that Taker didn't get the distance he was supposed to get.

Paul Birchill

Katie Lea Burchill

Hacksaw Jim Duggan (probably move to an ambassador role and travel to ticket booth openings and such)

Layla El

DJ Gabriel

Brian Kendrick

Hornswoggle (his Green/Gold team with Goldust has life enough for them to last till they come to Green Bay in 2 weeks; not much beyond that I figure)

Chris Masters (will he even get out of the blocks this time?)
