7 Wrestler You Didn’t Know Are Still Employed by WWE


WWE superstars come and go and a lot are ultimately
forgotten. Even some current WWE superstars have faded
away into obscurity, and nobody would blame you for thinking they’ve just up and left. However, many people you think are long gone
are actually still with the company, so here are 7 wrestlers you didn’t know are still
employed by WWE! You may have caught him briefly during a WWE
PPV, but most probably don’t know that Japanese superstar Funaki is still with the company. Funaki wrestled during the Attitude Era as
part of a memorable all-Japanese stable before going solo. After ultimately being released in 2010, Funaki
would do some work with WWE in Japan before finding his way to the Japanese commentary
team full time to cover PPVs, and from what I can tell, he’s doing a great job. Unless you keep up with your backstage wrestling
news, I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that Paige is no longer with WWE. Since an injury and two Wellness Policy violations,
Paige has yet to make a return to TV. Her career was kind of heading downhill in
WWE, and after all the drama surrounding her relationship with Alberto Del Rio, many people
thought she would just be released, but to this day Paige is still employed by WWE. For what it’s worth, Paige has talked about
possibly transitioning to MMA in the near future. Another superstar who has seemingly disappeared
after a Wellness Policy violation, Eva Marie is one wrestler a lot of people probably wish
wasn’t employed by WWE. After the violation and resulting suspension,
Marie has gone on to film a movie and is yet to return. Despite making some adjustments to her character
and improving her wrestling ability, most fans still weren’t fond of the budding actress. However, Eva is still under contract and should
eventually make her return to WWE. Tamina Snuka never really made a huge splash
in WWE, and because of that has seemingly faded away. She is a former Divas Champion and was a part
of the Women’s Revolution, but hasn’t really been seen around since then. Honestly, I totally forgot about Tamina myself. Tamina is currently signed to the SmackDown
roster so she could come back anytime, but I don’t know where she would fit in the
current landscape of the Women’s division. After the legendary Dudley Boyz left WWE,
they decided to hit up the indies as they had in the past. However, after just a short while, D-Von Dudley
returned to WWE, but not in the way you think. In late 2016, D-Von confirmed that he is working
for WWE in a “backstage capacity”. I’m not sure exactly what he’s doing,
but he has a lot of valuable knowledge about wrestling so I’m sure he’s being put to
good use. Eve Torres was never a great wrestler. In fact, she was much better in her managerial
role in WWE, so it’s no surprise the company kept her on in some capacity. After leaving in 2012, she got married to
Rener Gracie, took up BJJ and Self-Defense, and opened her own business. In 2014, Eve would return as an “Ambassador”
for WWE, meaning she makes periodic public appearances for the company, and is still
signed to this day. Honorable mentions go to Jack Swagger, Sin
Cara, Summer Rae, and the recently re-signed Kelly Kelly. Scotty 2 Hotty is a fan favourite superstar. His lively persona, crazy dance moves, and
amazing finishing move will forever be remembered by WWE fans, but many probably don’t know
he’s still with the company. After working the indies for a while, Scotty
would make his return to WWE under the NXT banner, working at the WWE Performance Center. Though not a master in the ring by any means,
Scotty was a decent overall superstar who has a lot to offer to young, developing talent. His experience alone is an invaluable asset
to up-and-coming wrestlers, so it’s awesome he landed this job with WWE. And those are 7 wrestlers you didn’t know
are still employed by WWE. If you enjoyed this video, then maybe give
it a thumbs up and subscribe for more wrestling lists. As always thanks for watching, and I’ll
catch you in the next one!

Update: Honourable Mention Jack Swagger was released from WWE just a few hours ago. Weird coincidence.

Edit: Tamina isn't a former Divas Champion.

These are 7 wrestlers that I don't even know.

Qwyatt Storm · May 15, 2017 at 3:40 am

Tamina should got to TNA or ROH

Vincent DiMurro · May 15, 2017 at 1:05 pm

ad dude Eva Marie is no longer with the WWE check your facts

Lucie Allan · May 15, 2017 at 3:05 pm

Tamina was never divas champion, Eve Torres was one of the best women's wrestlers of all time. So much of what you said was pretty wrong and inaccurate.

Kurt Wetzel · May 15, 2017 at 9:19 pm

I heard Paige was going to be releases but she sustained a neck injury while wrestling in the WWE under contract. Due to that WWE decided it will look bad on them to release her so they decided to keep her until her contract expires. I doubt she will wrestle For a WWE again but I wish she would. Probably going to wrestle in TNA where her boyfriend Alberto Del Rio wrestlers under a different name or MMA since she is interested.

DJfromFLA310 · May 16, 2017 at 6:24 pm

UPDATE Eva Marie is no longer with the company….The WWE is pretty much done with Paige at this point. Jack Swagger has been done with the WWE for a few months now and Tamina a few weeks back has made her return on Smackdown Live. A side note on Tamina….she had already been wrestling weeks prior to her TV return on Smackdown. She was dealing with not only her father being accused of murder, but also his passing away….I feel for her big time.

Heaven Paw · May 17, 2017 at 6:46 am

Eve is one of the best wrestlers the women's division has ever had

Sam Wicker · May 17, 2017 at 10:26 am

Tamina was on the other night, bad ass chick!

Colin · May 17, 2017 at 4:25 pm

dudleys were much better in tna

Koedi · May 17, 2017 at 6:26 pm

Tamina a former champion? Eve never a great wrestler? Ok sir πŸ˜‚

Gojirame Fan · May 17, 2017 at 7:51 pm

I thought Eve was a good wrestler.

Bryndel Rose · May 17, 2017 at 11:27 pm

the only thing eva improved was her cup size 🐸🐸🐸

Bryndel Rose · May 17, 2017 at 11:27 pm

tamina back

Juan Castaneda · May 17, 2017 at 11:47 pm

Um Tamina snuka was never divas champion lol

Sharp Cheddar · May 18, 2017 at 2:00 pm

I think it was already common knowledge that Eve is an ambassador for the company.

Sharp Cheddar · May 18, 2017 at 2:05 pm

Eve was an excellent wrestler. I hope you saying that was opinion and not "factual." Eve could go with anyone, and she knew how to work around less talented superstars weaknesses in the ring.

Eddie H · May 18, 2017 at 3:25 pm

Yea Tamina never won Divas/Woman Championship

Joe Zappy · May 23, 2017 at 10:10 pm

Paige needs to stay away from MMA, it hasn't really worked out lately for WWE superstars

James · May 27, 2017 at 2:11 am

Funaki got released but was doing work for WWE? Doesn't make sense. Actually, Funaki was released in 2010 and while yes did some referee jobs in 2011 and 2013, he wasn't signed with the company. Those are called 1 off's. They pay you for a 1 shot appearance. He was then rehired by WWE in 2016 to translate for Kenta in NXT or as Hideo Itami and wrestled as well here and there in NXT.

Spiceboy9000 · May 29, 2017 at 8:22 pm

that's funny big splash and taminas finisher is a splash

Spiceboy9000 · May 29, 2017 at 8:25 pm

if Kelly Kelly got resigned, where is she?

Tiborka666 · June 1, 2017 at 4:50 pm

how about Finlay … he is still in the WWE!!!

Chris Lowee · June 2, 2017 at 6:38 pm

Eva Marie is GONE! She was whining about being suspended and never returned. If she was still with WWE she would've been in the match that every SMACLDOWN woman was in at WRESTLEMANIA and be included in te MONEY IN THE BANK upcoming match. The only reason Nikki Bella isn't involved is because she's with Cenaannd that asshole is gonna help her stay at the top without competing.

AMA Mazing YT · June 4, 2017 at 2:54 pm

I knew 4/7
