Today could be the most important day in WWE in a very long time.

The WWE draft takes on much more importance this year, given the talent rosters being as depleted as they are. Vince McMahon needs to make sure that he is placing his talent on the right shows that will help them succeed.

Some see the retirement of Edge, combined with the loss of a number of other top guys in the last year, as a bad thing. I view it as a good thing because it actually forces WWE to get behind new talent.

For the first time in years, WWE can't sit on its laurels. They need to push new guys and they need to do it right away.

There will be some growing pains, but at least some of the guys that haven't been given a fair chance will be given a push that people feel has been deserved for a long time (Daniel Bryan).

We are T-minus seven days until the return of The Rock to Raw. He is going to be celebrating his 39th birthday on the show, which will take place from his hometown of Miami.

As of right now, there is no word on what the plans are for that show, but I would expect some kind of celebration that will be interrupted by John Cena.

John Morrison is six days away from his first WWE championship match on pay-per-view. He was booked into the match when he defeated R-Truth on Raw last week.

This could be the beginning of a big push for Morrison or it could be just another show in which he gets buried to protect John Cena and The Miz. I'm hoping for the former, but expecting the latter.

We will have the latest news and notes from the world of professional wrestling and get you all set for tonight's WWE draft.
