Two SmackDown Stars Removed From Main WWE Roster

Ryan Clark

The profiles of K.C. James and Idol Stevens have been removed (and deleted) from the SmackDown section on However, they haven’t been released as they are still under contract to WWE.

James and Stevens have been inactive since November due to their manager Michelle McCool being pulled off the road because she was feeling sick during the European tour. She was subsequently hospitalized with an enlarged kidney and electrolyte imbalance later that month. She was released from the hospital a few days later. The enlarged kidney was believed to be the result of some sort of eating issue. McCool is now well enough to appear at shows (she went on SmackDown’s tour of New Zealand last week), she’ll sometimes appear in the bikini contests held at house shows, but creative currently has no ideas for her to return to television. Or rather, they’re probably not too sure if they want to go through with the “Teacher’s Pets” gimmick again because it didn’t really get over with the crowd. Also, WWE probably wanted to go in a different direction with the team of Deuce & Domino being the lead heel tag team on SmackDown to feud with London & Kendrick.

Idol Stevens is currently in Ohio Valley Wrestling and regularly appearing on their television show. He also has a new tag team partner in the form of Johnny Jeter. As for K.C. James, he seems to be inactive. His name hasn’t come up in recent OVW show results. It remains to be seen if James and Stevens ever return to the main roster because it’s not a guarantee.

Michelle McCool’s profile is still on Interestingly, the gallery is labeled ‘Comeback Photos’.
