Brian Myers (known as Curt Hawkins in WWE) was fired by the WWE back on June 12, 2014. Following his release, Myers remained active on the independents and was regularly competing each and every weekend. Eventually, Myers returned to the WWE on July 21st, 2016. While Myers was actively competing on the independents, he also teamed with Highspots to develop a series called Developmentally Speaking.

In December 2007, Colin Delaney made his debut for World Wrestling Entertainment in a losing effort against Shelton Benjamin.
