Okay, Flair and Vince trying to swipe the champions from each other was believable -- but why the hell would Flair pick Lita instead of, say, Tajiri? WWF cruiserweight champion? Hello? Sigh.

Incidentally, as it stands, Flair has both the IC and Euro titles; Vince has hardcore and tag. Unless, of course, Angle beats RVD -- I'm typing this as their entrances start. As an RVD fan, I hope he doesn't get beaten just to shift the title over -- that would be lame.

And the Dudleyz being broken up will at least freshen up their act. Unless a couple of new Dudley siblings come out of the woodwork.

Looks like Mark Henry is due for a push if he gets chosen in the top twenty. I'll be looking forward to seeing if the stories of his having vastly improved have any substance to 'em.

Wow, Tajiri must be soooooo happy he was completely ignored. What's the point of having a belt that nobody wants? Especially since the damn Euro Belt was drafted before the Cruiserweight title.

My big beef with the Dudley's split is it seemed. . .well, uncesseary repitition. We'd already seen Vince and Ric screw each other by picking the big guys--UT and the nWo--so this just seemed. . .forced. You want some dramam in the split, split the Hardys and make the chubby gals cry.

And it's damn bad that you have to wait til quarter of 11 for the first decent match of the night. Probably the only one.

Supposedly there will be all kinds of trades in the coming weeks so this is not what we will see in the end. But I bet WWF.com will crash tonight.

So the biggest undrafted names end up as:
Test
Christian
Hardyz
APA
Tazz

Interesting how even with some odd choices done mostly for storyline purposes we still end up with no real glaring leftovers into the lottery pool.

If I were Test, I would go to both shows and wreck some havoc. After all, I would still have immunity, and no one could reprimend me. Of course, what's the chance that anyone will remember the whole immunity angle?

Apparently Jericho's name went into the Hopper or whatever the hell they used for this, and he ended up on Smackdown. Given Angle, Benoit, Jericho and the Rock, that would make Smackdown pretty damn entertaining as far as wrestling goes. Of course, all this is going to change.


Other interesting notes: APA broken up, Hardyz not. Hardyz end up on RAW, so Lita's happy. Until Matt gets jealous that she was picked and he wasn't. Torrie and Tajiri remain together, but Hurricane and Molly do not. And, in the one that worried us all... Scotty and the Hip Hop Hippo remain together!

Test ultimately went to Smackdown! and that's the place he'd be if he was to show up on the other show and claim immunity, but the odds of that happening are... Nil.

Apparently Tommy Dreamer, Justin Credible and Stevie Richards all have jobs, since they're all on Raw. Jackie's apparently not a full time official, since she got drafted too. D'Lo got drafted, which is interesting. Hopefully it means he'll be back on TV.

Edit: Under Tajiri's drafting, it lists him as the "current cruiserweight champion." It makes no mention of any such title of the WCW variety for X-Pac, which makes one assume that the rumors of its demise are true.

That's something I noticed. They took the time to list people's title reigns in all three companies (WWF, WCW, and ECW) but they left out RVD's two year TV Title reign... Whassupwidat?

The Dudley situation is headed for the inevitable. Upon the revelation that Kurt Angle is indeed a fourth Dudley Brother, we will see Bubba along with Spike take on the two homies from the crib, Kurt and D-Von.

Coming to an interpromtional PPV near you.

WWF.com revealed to me that Edge is now an 11-time IC champion.. they listed him as 4-time IC champ, 7-time IC champ.. and ignored his tag title run thanks to typos they didn't catch :P

They kinda blew the entire "Brock Lesnar as the outsider monster" bit didn't they? I was hoping Heyman would pop up in BOTH shows and just take random people out for awhile. Instead they just casually mention him over people who have actually shown they can wrestle.

Also, didn't it look like Heyman was gonna speak after Brock took out Rikishi?

I liked this draft. The cool graphics for the wrestlers and the ticker at the bottom of the screen were all the right touches for this. I'll say this, if Rock and D-Vong don't get traded for UT, I'll be surprised. Hopefully, Austin will be on Smackdown tonight and they can throw me on Raw, because as of now, Raw looks like the weaker show.

A Fan- One of the best Raws in a long time.

I think the Rock will stay on Smackdown. If anyone is getting traded to Flair's Raw it's Chris Beniot.

Hmmm, Benoit for (possibly) Bubba and Bradshaw. Vince is trying to support a tag division, he needs those two tema.s Flair wants his former Horemen buddy, and BAM! Instatrade. Although I'm inclined to think that Taker won't be staying on Raw either...

I don't think so. The Dudleys have fought every tag team like a million times. I think they think it's time to work on solo careers.
