Every year on Monday Night Raw, the night after Wrestlemania, WWE holds their annual draft to shake things up a bit.
In reality it is not a draft but more of a random lottery where the winner of each match earns draft picks for their respective brand. This is normally an exciting time for WWE fans because it brings unpredictability into play. You never can tell who will move from one brand to the other. It also brings us new match-ups for the next few months.
SmackDown has always been looked upon as the “B” show of the two brands, but last year after the draft the gap in talent was even more prominent. Raw for unseen reasons seemed to get all the talent in the draft. Raw was stacked with talent afterward, while SmackDown was left looking worst for wear.
To top that off SmackDown went on to lose a few key veterans due to injury and departure from the company, Undertaker, Christian, Matt Hardy and MVP to name a few. As of late WWE has been trying to fill the void by moving some younger talent over to the blue brand, but it still isn’t enough.
In this Slideshow I’ll show you what I would do if I was in charge of this year’s upcoming draft. I will show the people I would move from each brand to the other with a brief explanation. Hopefully after I’m done you will think the two brands look closer to being equal in talent.
Thanks for the read. I hope it is as interesting to read as it was to write.
