Why not make the draft be 50-50 between picking your own and picking the other guys?
Vince gets first pick, Vince takes the Rock because Smackdown! is the Rock's show.
Flair gets second pick, Flair takes Austin
Flair gets first pick of second round, assigns NWO to Vince "because I sure don't want them"
Vince gets second pick of second round, assigns the Undertaker to Flair.
This would establish a reason for Flair to end up with a guy like the Undertaker, Vince to end up with Hogan (They do an angle where Hogan never "withdrew" from NWO or whatever) It adds a bit of intrigue into it, and it gives a reason for faces and heels to be in the same "brand."
I was pondering the question of drafting each other. According to Flair, both he and Vince are on the roster of active wrestlers, meaning that they, too, should be subject to the draft. So say Flair drafts Vince and Vince drafts Flair. On Mondays, Flair's in charge, but on Thursdays Vince can do whatever he wants to him-and vice versa. An interesting idea...but ultimately unbelievable, as Vince would simply book Flair in five-on-one handicap matches every Thursday.
Who's in the draft- everybody or the active roster? (The WWF version of the explanation, not the smark one.)
Are there rounds?
How long is the draft?
Will it leave time on Raw for more than just the three way dance OMG THREE WAY SEE ONE CHICK GET POUNDED BY TWO GUYS AT ONCE CLICK HERE
Will there be other NBA Draft On TNT type elements featuring graphics packages of career highlights along with "Strengths" and "Weaknesses"? It'd be SO nifty to hear JR talk about Big Show and his weight problem when he gets picked at number 72 in the third round.
My heart wants to see CWAZY VINCE pick his first ten guys straight up, then go into nutball mode and start picking guys who aren't even there or available. GOLDBERG! BRET! HOGAN! (Fuck.)
All in all, I think there's only one thing to think about- in 10 to 12 months, it'll be back to one company, there will be about 5 new guys who get over because of it, endless I Told You Sos, and a lot of hurt feelings. Oh hell yeah.

Flair should draft Vince, and then fire him, thus removing him from both TV shows and getting the whole company. It's the Jimmy James Manuever, made famous during the epic Jimmy James/Evil Johnny Johnson battle over the Jimmy James Corporation.

I HEART this post. Everything in wrestling should be based on Newsradio. Preferably the stuff BEFORE Hartman's wacky wife gave him the deep six.
Imagine the great episode of Raw with the shocking revelation that Test is in fact CANADIAN~!
Just kidding. No one pays that much attention to Test.
In their defence, though, I believe they've had PPV streaming via the app for some time now. IIRC, it started out during the Rock/Cena WM so it's not like they don't have any idea of the traffic and server issues.
