I am sad to see Teddy Long go. There was still a place for him as a neutral/babyface leaning authority figure, but the elimination of the brand split rendered him extraneous.

The Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal cuts stun me. 3MB has plenty of shelf life still as an undercard heel act. Why cut them when they played that role well? I think they like Slater in that sort of role even as a single, but Hornswoggle may not be long for the WWE.

Drew McIntyre was once married to a Diva named Tiffany who was GM of ECW in its dying days and later was on Smackdown for a bit. At either Mania or Summerslam, there was an incident at a hotel when a domestic dispute turned into her attacking him. Drew did the smart thing by not laying a hand on her and trying to get away in order to defuse the situation, but the image of him running from a girl seemed to work against him. His push, which may already have been waning, died and he never got pushed hard again.
