WWE Draft: Will It Take Place At All This Year?

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.

COMMENT BELOW and tell us who YOU think should switch brands.

    Miz and Ziggler could do well on SD, I have never been less bothered by Randy Orton so it doesn’t matter where he lands, he will probably have some sort of high profile feud.  Either way, as long as they keep Punk and Bryan seperate for a while, I don’t really mind.  the eventual feud between them will be amazing so I am happy for them to wait on that.

    The Miz has done everything there is to do On Raw, Time for a SmackDown shift, Give Dolph Ziggler a second chance with the World Heavyweight Championship. Would like to see John Cena on SmackDown only because he’s been on Raw for too long. I understand certain superstars are like the Flagship of a show, but it’s time to mix things up.

      Mike miz sucks ass… from his real world days… he made something 4 himself no doubt but he is really an  ass in real life… #jusssayin

        People say the same thing for a lot of other people in real life. In my opinion it’s not my right to Judge. That’s just me.

       true about john cena.. the punk cena feud was so important last year and the title reign of cm punk to establish himself as the face of ra

      There really is no point in holding a draft. The brand extension is pretty much meaningless now. But that said, I would love to see Dolph Ziggler back on Smackdown and get the spotlight he deserves. And, as you said, maybe even a World Title run.

      One reason I don’t want Cena to go to Smackdown is because that means I would have to watch him twice a week. He’s already overexposed as it is. Seeing him twice a week would be overkill.

        The Reason why the Brand Extension can’t end is because of their Live
        House Shows. They are Separate Events when their visiting the states.
        This gives people the option to Go Blue or Go Red when they come to
        people’s areas. It’s good for Marketing, but bad for us because of the
        Raw Supershow concept, you know having SD appear on Raw does kill the point of a draft.

        That’s though even if he was drafted to SmackDown, they would still Use Cena on Raw regardless lol.

    Just end the damn Brand Extension.

  • Guest_190

    I can’t be bothered by Randy anymore. He’s a pathetic excuse of a human being. Anyhoo, Ziggler/Miz definitely need a much needed BOOST. Best way for that to happen is shifting them to SD !. Where I believe both can truly shine & be BIG TIME SUPERSTARS. Now, can you imagine an “Awesome” babyface Miz vs The ShowOff & #HEEL for the WHC at some point down the road? That can happen. By then, they will be “stars”. On a side note – why do I have this feeling that my boy Cody Rhodes is moving to Monday Nights? NO ! NO ! NO ! NO ! NO ! Just…………………… say…………………….. NO !

      Shut Up and Respect Randy Orton you don’t have to like him but you should respect him.

      • Illmatic

        no we shouldn’t.  He doesnt respect anyone, therefore we need to treat him the same.

    I hope #Smackdown! will be stronger this year. I would like to see ADR, Kane, Miz & Ziggler on blue brand. I 

  • BrahmaBullRKO

    Ziggler and Miz were at their peaks on RAW, but they’re doing nothing now. Going to Smackdown would do them a world of good.

  • GreatRedBeard

    I vote that that the Draft concept be done away with entirely. I’ve never been a fan of the concept, and I feel like a more unified roster will in turn lead to more unified, better developed feuds. I recall mid card feuds in the pre-Brand Extension days, such as the whole Right to Censor concept, that were much better developed than most main event feuds are today.

    I don’t know why everyone is on zigglers nuts he is only good as a jobber, of he is going
    To be world champ he needs to be repackaged because right now he bores the crap out of me
    He is only good at selling.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001102552850 Akbar Mustehsan

    Just end the brand extension crap. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1222470130 Shannon Harris

      I thought repackaging the videogame to WWE 12 instead of SVR was the precursor to ending the brand extension anyway.

  • http://twitter.com/Count_Da_Money Count_Da_Money

    I would keep Ziggler on Raw. Switch Orton and Miz. Del Rio back to Smackdown. 

  • Dontay Hollins

    do away with the whole brand extention thing and unify the title since everybody is goin on both shows now it pointless

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1222470130 Shannon Harris

      Exactly! They already re-unified the tag titles, and only use the Divas championship over the women’s title anyway, so it makes sense. Have one mid-card title too, that way you develop the competition in that area of the roster.

  • MarksAmuseMe

    I never watch SD, and not really an Orton fan, but I’d easily trade him for Miz and Dirk Diggler. Both of those guys have run their course on Raw.

    • MarksAmuseMe

      Oh, and Swagger can go to SD too.

  • Punk

    if they were to keep the brands i think
    Cena should change shows and let punk be in charge of raw.
    Orton change to raw and go heel
    Miz change and change his awesome gimmick cos its gotten pretty bad now
    Ziggles should go to smackdown cos he’s just not used right on raw
    but i personally dont see any point in changing brands, there all gonna show up on the same shows over again, just go back to the way raw and smackdown used to be, with one top title, and everyone chasing it

    • Kaylyn Owens

      I think they should just mush them together. I don’t know how they’d do it. But, it would interesting.

  • Kaylyn Owens

    I don’t know who should switch. Cena on SD may have fans actually watching. Other than that, I don’t know.

  • sXe4life

    What they really need to do is bring back the undisputed championship idea with one guy holding both titles. Maybe like CM Punk Chris Jericho Sheamus and Randy Orton/Alberto Del Rio/ John Cena

  • AngelFlow

    Let Randy on SD as the top face and trade Ziggler to feud with him. I like the matches between them and I think is time for Ziggler to have a World Title run, so this feud can push Ziggler as a top main eventer on SD for a while. (Don’t start saying now that Randy don’t like to help to push young guys)

    For The Miz, I want to see him turn face. He have a lot of charisma and can work a crowd very well and he is not been used on RAW so move him to SD too.

    Or the best idea: STOP WITH THE BRAND SPLIT!!! Have one big brand, 1 world title (change the design to one more serious or bring back the Undisputed one), 1 minor title (U.S. or Intercontinental) 1 tag team title and the women’s title (get rid of the divas title). I want the Hardcore title back, it can give some goods moments and unpredictable champions. Have top feuds developing on both shows. Maybe this can help WWE with the ratings a bit and get old fans come back.

  • chadepik

    Can we trade otunga and swagger to tna for the dvon and Bubba?

    • Systematic

      Devon get the paychecks

  • wwetnadudez

    After WM
    To SD: Cena (as WWE Champ but soon to lose it) Ziggler and Miz along with Brodus Clay
    To Raw: Sheamus(As world Champ), Orton and William Regal (as a competitor) Maybe Drew as well.

    Why don’t we just get rid of the “Supershow” moniker and just call it Raw and Smackdown like they did when Smackdown first got started.  It makes more sense, especially with a depleted tag team and women’s division.  We can even keep the WWE and WHC title belts along with the US and IC straps.

    I wouldn’t mind getting rid of the anon…  er, Johnny Ace GM with a return of “Called to Rule” Triple H.  This “giving the people what they want” thing makes me want to switch channels because the matches isn’t one that I would care about or already know how it want end.

    miz suckes

  • Patrick Bituin

    It is pointless to have a draft since the rosters have been on the same shows back and forth numerous times. quite frankly i don’t even remember if that guy or this guy is on smackdown or raw anymore.

    Well unlike back then you get chills when you see a raw superstar go against a smackdown Superstar. I can remember Survivor Series, when Goldberg interrupted Lesnar on an interview, I was like “Both champs together OMG!”

    Now you get to see CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan happened twice on RAW this year if I’m not mistaken which is not that exciting to see anymore. Not that i hate it.. It was good match up but i think it should be done on a PPV!
