WWE 2011 Draft Results: The 10 Biggest Stories to Come from the Annual Event

While the WWE has a few special pay-per-views every year like WrestleMania and SummerSlam, the organization holds a few particularly special Raw events.  One of those is the WWE draft.

Though it is usually held later in the year, the WWE chose to hold this event just weeks after WrestleMania, with a lot of circulating that they rushed it due to the retirement of Edge.  

For years, the draft has looked eerily similar to free agency in Major League Baseball where the Yankees and Red Sox pillage the rosters of the lower -tiered teams like the Pirates.  Monday Night Raw would often bring in main event superstars while SmackDown would get mid-card talent.

Well, for all those that expected the same 'ole draft, you were in for quite a shock

In less than an hour, the foundations of the WWE were shaken up when John Cena and Randy Orton, arguably the two biggest faces in the industry were sent to Friday Night SmackDown.

However one hour later we saw Cena on his way back to Raw in a move many will call controversial if not pointless. 

Those two stories are undoubtedly the two biggest stories to emanated from tonight's show, but they certainly aren't the only newsworthy events to transpire.

Let's take a look at the ten biggest stories and new potential feuds that came from tonight's Raw.
