Exclusive: 2012 WWE Draft Expected to Be the “Biggest Ever”

Nick Paglino

WWE DraftWWE Chairman Vince McMahon is starting to focus on what the WWE landscape will be after WrestleMania, and he's got his thought process on the annual draft, WrestleZone has learned exclusively.

"Vince knows he can keep Raw and Smackdown talent on both shows, since Raw is a Super Show now," a key WWE insider told us, "so in order to bring up the Smackdown house shows, how could it hurt to have (John) Cena or (Chris) Jericho on Smackdown, and have them appear on Raw and shoot the major angles there?"

Vince has noticed that even though the ratings have remained stagnant on Raw throughout the Rock vs Cena program (and Undertaker vs HHH program as well), the live events for Monday Night Raw have been selling out. "The brand split is pretty much over," we were told, "everyone appears on Monday nights. Vince wants the wealth spread around a little bit more to improve the bottom line."
