What will happen if slip rings are removed from a DC motor?

It won't work. The slip rings work in conjunction with the brushes to connect a rotating part of the unit with the stationary part. We need to couple current into and out of the rotor, and without the slip rings for the brushes to ride on, we can't do that, and the motor won't work.
