In WWE’s ’15 Years of Raw’ special magazine that was released on newsstands this past Tuesday, they put out a “Bottom 15” list composed of former WWE talents who they believe overstayed their welcome in the promotion. It’s interesting to note that a number of the people listed are either individuals who spoke out on the drug issues within in professional wrestling this past year or currently employed by TNA. WWE doesn’t give any reasons for why certain people are on this dubious list, as it’s simply a list of talent. Anyway, here is who they put down: 15 Superstars Who Overstayed Their Welcomes (Raw 15th Anniversary Magazine – January/February 2008 issue)
