a) Because David, like the majority of other OVW/HWA/developmental talent, wasn't up for the draft. (Lesnar, Mark Henry, and Rico are presumably being bumped up to the big leagues, but they're exceptions.)
b) Dunno. I think that'd be a pretty amusing angle, but then I'm a Test mark. Of course, just because Test shows up at Raw doesn't mean Flair has to book him, or even let him in the building, but he could always do a run-in. Maybe Vince will send him over to get the Hardcore title back from Raven.
True Prophet, hadn't thought of the fact that it was all aftermath..still it seemed like the people back then were into it at that point. It might have screwed with every rule possible but it was entertaining to see. And heh..
