So here we are once again for the annual WWE Draft. The 2011 event was rushed due to the sad and surprising announcement that Edge, a.k.a Adam Copeland, had to retire from active competition due to a debilitating spinal condition. As a fan of Edge since his arrival to the WWE in the late 90's, I was very sad to see him go, but glad he had the intelligence to walk away.
Edge's retirement is just the latest in a string of Superstars that have left the WWE in the past year. Shawn Michaels retired, Batista left the organization to act, fight or do just about anything other than wrestle. Chris Jericho is dancing with other B-list stars. Triple H has fought in one match in a year and Undertaker isn't far behind him.
Combine that with some shoddy booking of some of their younger stars, and the WWE finds themselves in a desperate need of something new and refreshing. A heel turn by R-Truth was an example of this.
With a need to push new stars, this draft could end up being one of the more interesting in recent memory. While the whole concept of the draft has lost some luster due to "trades" that happen during the year now.
But with a lot of uncertainty occurring, let's take a look at ten potential shockers this coming Monday.
