As most have probably heard by now, the WWE has announced it will hold its annual WWE Draft this coming Monday, April 25 on RAW.
Originally planned to be held in June, the movement of the Draft to this coming Monday has been called by many a "desperation move" by WWE, done mostly in response to Edge's abrupt retirement.
The news going around the Internet is that although the Draft will be held this coming Monday, the changes made by the draft will not come into affect until after Extreme Rules. This is the opinion under which I write this article.
Last year's draft featured 19 picks moving 21 WWE Superstars, Divas, and employees. Because of the smaller main roster (thanks to injury, retirement, and wrestlers leaving the company), this mock draft features 16 picks and 17 Superstars and Divas switching brands.
WARNING: This mock draft contains spoilers for Friday, 4/22's Smackdown. I try not to look at spoilers and include them in what I write, but in order to create the best mock draft possible I had to include events that will occur on this week's Smackdown.
