While it's certainly not necessary as a concept (WWE makes roster changes and trades throughout the year as they see fit), the WWE Draft makes for one of the most interesting and exciting nights in WWE. In one night, the entire face of WWE can change.
New rivalries will begin, while old rivalries may be renewed. Superstars who have been struggling may find a fresh start, while others could find their career ruined by a shocking move. Championships could even change brands. Anything can and will happen on WWE's Draft, especially this year.
Rumors suggest that the Draft wasn't going to take place until June this year, but with the sudden retirement of Edge, the event was moved up as there is now a huge void that must be filled on Smackdown.
I think that, along with the likely continued absences of Triple H and The Undertaker from WWE TV, makes this perhaps the most exciting and interesting Draft ever.
Here are some of my predictions for Monday night and how it will shape WWE for the rest of 2011.
