As in, once Mickie James finally decides to leave, if they still have Katie Lea on the payroll, they should just roll her on over to Smackdown and have her replace Mickie as that show's top fem face to reinvigorate her career. Finally she's completely separated from the wannabe-incest plot of 2008, so it's at least possible.


I'm seriously hoping for this, Pac. I adore Katie Lea and she deserves to have her time to shine. She's got a unique look about her that sets her apart from other Divas and can actually wrestle unlike some of the ones getting pushed every week. I'd love to see her and Nattie lock up at some point so the two of them can really showcase their talents.

Same here. Shame for Paulie, no doubt, but I´d much rather have Katie Lea stay and finally be utilized to the best of her abilities.

I'm not surprised this guy was released either. I mean, come on, other than having a smoking hot "sister" in Katie Leigh, what has this guy done? The only thing I remember him for was being a pirate...
BECAUSE I'M THE MEMBER...AND I'M.....AWESOOOOOOME!!



Vintage Mr. Member, right there!

Not really a surprise, WWE didnt know what to do with him after the failed attempt at having him as a Pirate and tag team partner of William Regal, then with that incest angle with his "sister" Katie Lea.
 
I doubt TNA will grab him unless Doug Williams and/or Nigel McGuinness pull some strings to bring him over there. He was a good talent but he lacked the charisma and the mic skills for anyone to really take him serious.

It's a shame but Paul Burchill never really got over with the fans in my view - I'm not denying he's talented but if the fans don't connect to you, it's a bust. I also think WWE are partly to blame for giving him such awful gimmicks - the pirate thing and the "incest" angle with Katie Lea being among them. Maybe if he'd been able to do his "Ripper" gimmick on either RAW or SD, things might have worked out but because he was doing it over on ECW I don't think enough people saw him in a decent gimmick.

» Paul Burchill's untimely release from WWE led to much head shaking within the company as he's a respected in-ring performer and not considered trouble in the locker room. Burchill has told friends he plans on continuing wrestling. The timing of his release is especially rough as friends say he and his wife are expecting a child later this year.
 
 
Well WWE had nothing for Burchill to do, so really it isn't much of a surprise even if some backstage of WWE are unhappy about it, if WWE has no plans for your future theres no point in them keeping you.

I honestly think, Paul would fit in well with the British Invasion over in TNA, He'd be a great fit there in my opinion.
