A little over a month since new changes have came about to WWE. But like any overhaul changes are needed along away. Raw and Smackdown will now compete only against each other. With WWE taking a new direction, something new needs to happen. So with that being said there will be a Draft to decide who will go to which brand and who will still have a job. The following is a press release.
August 11th, 2009
World Wrestling Entertainment would like to announce of the 2009 Draft "Where New Things Happen". Some Superstars and Divas will be seeing new homes, while others will be either shipped to a developmental facility, or will lose their job all together. Who will lose their job? Who will take this opportunity to rise to the top? All will be known this Wednesday with the special Draft.
There are a couple problems needed to be worked out first. Who will represent Raw and Smackdown? Who will get to have the first chance at a draft pick? Two very big questions that need to be resolved.
Tonight will lead to a big surprise as two people will be named General Manager of Raw and Smackdown. Also a simple coin toss will decide the first 6 draft picks. Whoever wins will pick the first draft pick, then the other GM will pick, and so on and so forth till 6 names have been drafted. These 6 men will move on to draft night to represent their brand. All 6 will compete in matches with someone from the other brand. The brand with the best win total out of the three matches will be able to pick first.
New opportunities wait the Superstars and Divas. Time will tell who takes the reigns and becomes champion.
What other changes could happen with the 'plan' to fix WWE? No one knows.
But remember to check out the draft this Wednesday. "Where New Things Happen"
