The man who will be responsible for the live WWE Draft this monday on Raw is me tatsuhiro-hitomi is back with a brand new topic. Now this has been bothering me for like years now (yes years) I mean what if d WWE Draft is made to a yearly WWE PPV. I mean c'mon they canceled New Years Revolution WWE should at least make another PPV and I was thinking it should be on the month after WrestleMania. Also think of d matches in the card full of inter-brand matches including Championship Matches I mean this years WrestleMania saw Smackdown vs Raw for d World Titles even the Tag Team Unification (kinda sad it was a dark match). With all the inter-brand matches WWE should at least make an appropriate PPV for all the Smackdown vs Raw vs ECW matches that way we can see a majority of d suprstars perform (not like every ppv ECW gets to announce one match featuring their brand) So do u agree or not just vote!

Nar, we would end up seeing 5 squash matches and John Cena vs Edge each year

Waste of time

I'll be honest I'll struggle to watch the 3 hours alone, a PPV would be worse. Even REAL sports drafts get tedious on TV like the NFL and NBA and NHL after say the first few big picks if it's not your team. The WWE has it worse with how guys of late keep swapping shows without even reasoning anymore (see last week's Smackdown) so brands mean nothing anymore, but you can dissolve it now or you give even more free reign for things to grow stale.

IF it were to improve in any form as about 90% of fans now hate it and we watch out of habit (and to see if they right the wrong last time of moving JR to Smackdown):

1. Return to GMs picking the people. It was WAY more fun when GMs Teddy Long/Paul Heyman would pick against Eric Bischoff in more plotting storyline ways.

2. Draft rookies like real drafts. The reason sports has drafts is to get new stars for the future. This is one of the biggest issues today as things have grown stale with the same guys on top. Have GMs draft guys from FCW with preview clips to push when they do get big and slowly used.

3. Cut random picks. We don't want Press Your Luck the game show with the Mortal Kombat Wall of Doom.

4. Give guys immunity/Franchise tags. Use those stupid matches on the show to decide picks to also give certain guys immunity from being picked like in the NFL and for that matter, like their own Raw vs. SD video games!

5. EITHER KEEP TO BRANDS OR DISSOLVE IT. Being half pregnant isn't good so being half hearted on this branding is the same deal. It might take a while to repair but decide on either now and stick to that thing called LONG TERM PLANNING.

OK that's enough from me, take care and hope for the best!
