If you follow the WWE at all, then you know there is a bit of controversy brewing in the buildup to WrestleMania. Since coming back to WWE from AEW two years ago, Cody Rhodes has been trying to "finish his story" and win the WWE championship, a title that his father, Dusty Rhodes, could never win.

But after winning the Royal Rumble with a chance to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, Rhodes has seemingly been pushed aside in favor of The Rock and fans are not happy that Rhodes will not get to "finish the story."

Even if you are not a wrestling fan, there have been a handful of Gators over the years that weren't able to finish their story with the Florida. The following are five players whose time with the Gators was cut short for a variety of reasons.

Florida Football: Finish The Story

Will Grier

One of the great what ifs in Florida Football history, Will Grier played six glorious games for the Gators in 2015 as a true freshman. Grier went 24 of 29 passing for four touchdowns during the 38-10 beatdown of Ole Miss as Florida started the season 6-0 and ascended as high as 8th in the country.

But Grier was suspended mid season for testing positive for a banned substance and was never seen again in a Florida uniform. Rather than wait out the year long suspension that would have seen Grier return in 2016, Grier claims that then coach Jim McElwain pushed him out the door to transfer.

Grier would go on to have two successful seasons with West Virginia and floated around NFL practice squads for several seasons.
