2012 WWE Draft

Many fans have been emailing in asking when the 2012 WWE Draft will take place.

Monday’s 3-hour RAW Supershow was originally scheduled to host the Draft, but WWE would have made an announcement by now if that was the case. The next 3-hour RAW after that takes place on June 11th from Hartford, Connecticut, but there have been no indications that the draft will be held then.

There has also been talk of doing away with the Draft concept entirely. With WWE re-branding RAW as a a “Supershow” each week featuring SmackDown talent, the brand separation has never meant less.

That said, WWE feels that several superstars (Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler and The Miz) are desperately in need of a “change of scenery” – so we could see various trades take place to shake up the rosters.

      This absolute sucks, I miss the competitive heat between Smackdown and RAW, that’s what made me tune in, when superstars would humorously bad mouth the opposite brand and its superstars. DRAFT was a amazing PPV, that left everybody’s eyes drawn and on the edge of there seat. WWE added ‘Supershow’ to RAW’s name to promote Smackdown because they think RAW is over shadowing Smackdown (even though Smackdown have a larger and better roster), also RAW’s advert for the world tour reads ‘See your favorite superstars from RAW and Smackdown’, on the other hand Smackdown’s ad says ‘See your favorite superstars from Smackdown’.- That’s proof of what WWE think. WWE originally planned to have a DRAFT on 1000th episode but now they might change there mind because the concept will interrupt the 1000th episode heat, there will be no point because Smackdown stars are allowed to compete on RAW (which I think shouldn’t happen, just stay on your brand unlike Daniel Bryan who is on RAW and Smackdown every week) and because that day is celebrating RAW not Smackdown. Also check WWE.com events they got rid of DRAFT so if it happens this year it will be the last! :( Unless they bring it back which probably won’t happen. Hopefully there will be a DRAFT, and if there is I hope WWE draft more better people to RAW because RAW is filled with boring NXT rookies and Smackdown has most of the WWE’s big names like Del Rio, Daniel Bryan, Cody Rhodes, Sheamus and Randy Orton. RAW only have CM Punk, John Cena, Dolph Ziggler and the 60 day suspended stars Rey Mysterio and Chris Jericho to there name.

        Daniel Bryan is on both shows because he is one half of the tag team champions

      WWE needs some new Good Blood due to the fact that out best & most admired wrestling superstars are on the verge of retiring. Their bodies can only take so much! I dont know how they will feel by age 50? Like 80+ probably! Unfortunately all the newer wwe wrestlers have been WAY UNDER EXPECTATIONS!!!!!!!

      draft? when i was a fan (’86 – mid 90s) it was the WWF. and better than the NWA and AWA in my mind. maybe not always as far as talent, but as entertainment. anyways. just saying im out. i prolly couldnt tell u one guys name these days is HHH still alive? theres a guy called miz or something right?

      • WWEFan4Life

        Very understandable why you want to be out and to answer your questions, Yes,HHH is still alive and yes there is a guy called the miz,but he sucks anyway.

      THIS IS WHY I HATE WWE REALLY NO DRAFT BECAUSE RAW HAS TO HAVE SMACKDOWN TALENT ON ITS SHOW COME ON. SERIOUSLY WWE YOU SUCK AND PLEASE BRING BACK E…..C…….W!!!!!!!!!!!!! And please focus on the attitude era instead of the STUPID PG ERA. YOUNG SUPERSTARS SUCK
