WWE Spoilers: Update on the 2012 WWE Draft

This Monday night’s three-hour RAW SuperShow in Detroit was originally slated to be the WWE’s annual Draft special, but The Bleacher Report (via the Wrestling Observer Newsletter) is reporting that the annual WWE Draft may take place on June 11 in Hartford, CT (which is the next three-hour RAW that the WWE has scheduled).

With the Draft being rendered essentially pointless given the fact that RAW and SmackDown Superstars just appear on either show at any given point regardless of what brand they are a part of, this year’s Draft will more than likely be treated with less importance than the Drafts of years past. Another sign that the brand split is meaning less and less by the day is that, when the WWE.com site was updated a little while ago, the Superstars were no longer divided by which brand they belonged to.

Of the names being considered for a brand switch are Randy Orton and Dolph Ziggler, with Alberto Del Rio already being moved to the SmackDown roster without any sort of formal announcement or explanation.

Do you think that there needs to be a WWE Draft this year? Post your comments in the box below.

    Unless they somehow get rid of this “Supershow” concept and go back to them being two seperate brands with two seperate groups of superstars/divas that can’t appear on the opposite brand, then I honestly don’t see the point in the draft this year. It would only serve as a waste of time in my opinion, but hopefully it goes back to the way it was…

    I think there should still be a draft, because I really do hope they go back to the two seperate shows being hosted by two different GM’s, and neither of them by Mr Laryngitis.

      My feelings exactly.

    WWE needs a shake up and the draft has worked in the past a little annoying that they have made raw a “Supershow” and abolished it.  Just have the same story-lines over and over getting boring as hell.

    yes there should still be a draft this year, i want things to go back to how they was, this supershow thing is actually a terrible idea.

  • Erichuwe

    Yes

    There most likely won’t be a draft this year(i wish there was) because of the ‘Supershows’ so there really is no point because anyone can go on raw or smackdown.

    Randy Orton won’t get drafted if there was a draft unless something big would take his place like Cena or Lesnar because Orton took Edges Place on Smackdown so everything could be balanced.

  • Justin

    WWE Really needs to get rid of the whole “SuperShow” concept.  Because now all of the tiltles except the World title belongs to someone on RAW and SmackDown is doing terrible.  So unless WWE ends supershow the Draft may be at its end.
