So on RAW earlier tonight we found out that Evan Bourne, Jack Swagger, and Mark Henry have all joined RAW as part of a 15 Superstar trade.  Here’s the complete list:

Coming to Monday Night RAW:

Jack Swagger (from ECW)
Evan Bourne (from ECW)
Mark Henry (from ECW)
Alicia Fox (from SmackDown)
Gail Kim (from SmackDown)

Coming to Friday Night SmackDown:

Matt Hardy (from RAW)
Finlay (from ECW)
The Hart Dynasty – Tyson Kidd, DH Smith, and Natalya (from ECW)

Coming to ECW:

Shelton Benjamin (from SmackDown)
Goldust (from RAW)
William Regal (from RAW)
Nicki & Brie Bella (from RAW)

Somebody please tell me – what the hell was the point of the draft?  The Bellas went to RAW from SmackDown with the Draft, as did Matt Hardy.  Alicia Fox just got over to SmackDown from ECW and now she’s on RAW.  It’s ridiculous.  Ah well, whatever.  Be interesting to see if ECW is as good minus Swagger, Bourne, Henry, and the Hart Dynasty.  Shelton Benjamin is the only major SmackDown loss – and I say this because they pretty much treat Gail Kim like she’s a jobber anyway.  In fact, SmackDown will be even better with David Hart Smith, Tyson Kidd, and Natalya (who was drafted to ECW from SmackDown earlier this year in the supplemental draft, incidentally).

I just don’t see the point of this – the draft was just two months ago!

  1. So Matt Hardy is going to be on the same show as Jeff, with Jeff on a week-to-week basis. Hmm, interesting.

    Aww, I was hoping to see "English Lesson Shelton" go after R-Truth and the like some more.

    Regal to ECW? Regal/Dreamer could be great. He's stepping into the Finlay role, sort of.

    Poor Gail Kim.
