WWE Draft 2011.

Next week.

Why does WWE bother with this concept anymore? It sorta made sense when the brand split was harder, but all it does these days is create extra ad revenue from a three-hour show.

Why do they bother with many of their concepts? I assume they're just repeating their most cost-effective patterns and not caring about trying to max out viewership.

It is completely pointless what with no one sticking to their own show anymore.

I would say Randy Orton to Smackdown is a slam dunk.

I would say it's an alley-oop!

I know its mostly illusion but if anything I like that it creates fresh feuds ... or atleast feuds that are rehashed from a few years back.

Example of a fresh feud you want to see?
Torgo said Apr 21, 2011 18:37:09
Chris Masters vs. Primo

I would like to see Cena on Smackdown to be honest. Cena vs. Del Rio is fresh as fuck and would be wicked.

Either that or they shove all the guys who can wrestle on Smackdown like they did in 2003.

Are we still allowed to say "wrestling"?
Poofter eh?

My guess is the most 'interesting' thing that will happen with the drafts is that NEXUS GOLD and NEXUS CORPS get split up and they all make shocked faces, which won't be very interesting at all.

Then usually one guy who is sort of a under-mid card type of guy will get drafted and they will play it up like this is a big opporunity for this guy, sort of like what they did with Dolph Ziggler going to RAW a few weeks ago.

Cena isn't going to Smackdown...ever. I could easily see Del Rio on RAW though.

I'd like for Del Rio, Christian, Bryan, Punk, and Sin Spiderman to be on Smackdown so I don't have to watch RAW anymore.

I think a lot of you are going to have to eat your words now.

Sin Cara for Rey Mysterio
Big Show for Mark Henry
John Cena for John Cena

What a night for Smackdown!

Randy, Mistico, Sheamus, Danielson....uhhh Uso's....Smackdown did alright.

If Cena AND Orton had have went to Smackdown it would have meant they would have to create or push babys on Raw....but they teased us and we now have the Super twins on either show. Interesting to see where they go
Poofter eh?

What was the point of having a draft show, if 70% of the drafts aren't even in the show?
