Will there be another draft this year?
« on: March 29, 2017, 11:53:07 AM »

Props' Reigns thread got me thinking to ask.

Sending Reigns to SD and hooking him up with his revamped cousins is the makings of a great heel faction.

Miz to Raw is deserved. He Keeps proving himself no matter the angle. Seeing the US title relevant again would be nice, too.

All the dirt sheet sites have come to the conclusion that there will be, apparently

Seems likely for shortly after Raw so that Nakamura, The Revival, and maybe some other big names (#DIY?) can get called up.

Raw's booking is terrible, sending Mix over there wouldn't do him any good. They'd just mire him down in some shitty angles with Jinder Mahal, Titus O'Neil, Big Show, or God knows whom else.

Aw, the annual poaching from Smackdown.

Yeah, it'll probably happen. AJ Styles will probably go to RAW.

Reigns will probably go to Smackdown to make up for Cena not being full time soon. Also...they SD might be able to save him.

And...am I the only one who wishes that the GM stuff was booked to make sense. Like Stephanie, because she's a total bitch, has to deal with signing wrestlers for more than their worth because--why else stay on RAW to be tortured. Or maybe Smackdown just signing people to show that they do that.

I mean, yeah, the blockbuster signing of James Ellsworth aside. RAW is made out to get everyone. Hell, UT said Smackdown was his home--he's shown up more on RAW!

I don't get why you can't treat both shows like the A show. Honestly...if Smackdown got another hour, I'd be cool with it. Their booking, I actually believe can handle it.

Rusev needs to get to Smackdown.

With Joe and Braun on Raw, he will probably never be fashionable again as a top stud heel.

Yeah, Lana's hot and all, but she's brought his character down IMO.
Which sucks because him vs Joe would be hella cool.

I like Rusev as a dude. He is entertaining as hell. But as a wrestler, his matches bore me. I think he is in the right role for him as a floating mid carder.

Really?
I mean, i cant see him as world champ, but the guy's a beast in the ring, or was, when he debuted. His matches looked painful for his opponents.

I can see Rusev as world champion. The guy has put on great matches and when he has the chance shows he has personality and mic skills.

And it looks like no draft, just the GMs trading wrestlers.

I honestly can't think of a single Rusev match that I thought "Well, THAT was 4+ stars!".

Not that he puts on too many stinkers. Guy is just the king of the 2.0 - 3.0 range of matches. He's not someone I'm DYING to see more of.

I like him more than fucking Bray Wyatt, though, and they put a world title on HIM.

His matches with Kalisto and Cena were all pretty good.

I like him better than Orton at this point. A 13th title run vs a WM defense/win for one of the 'new era' that keep getting pushed down? Yeah i'd take Bray OR Rusev.
