So long and farewell. We just recently wrapped up another year in WWE and that means a lot of changes came and went during the year. That can include a variety of things, including wrestlers both coming and going to the roster. A lot of time is spent talking about the people coming, but what about those people who left? WWE might not be talking about them, but other people are.

In case you forgot them. Here’s a look at everyone who left WWE last year:

WWE Future Endeavors 2018

A new video has been making the rounds on YouTube looking at everyone who left WWE over the course of 2018. The talent left the company for a variety of reasons, ranging from legal issues to cost cutting measures and various things in between. The video includes names that left all the way from the beginning of the year up to the end with all names listed chronologically.

Opinion: There are some names in here that I had forgotten about, which makes for quite the retrospective. Some of these names are a lot bigger than others but each one of them deserves at least a mention. You never can tell when someone is going to be leaving the company and that makes things a lot more interesting. Some of them might be back, but for others, this is the end of the line, which might be better in some cases.

Which departing talent was the biggest loss? Who do you think will leave this year? Let us know in the comments below.
