My 2012 WWE Draft Predictions

25 Feb

It's time to shake things up again!

On Monday, April 23 2012 in Detroit Michigan, the 2012 WWE Draft commences on a very special three-hour episode of Monday Night RAW. It’s the time where several WWE Superstars and Divas change brands in order to refresh the rosters of both RAW and SmackDown, which helps began new feuds, storylines, and maybe even a babyface/heel turn or two.

And so without further delay, here are the Superstars and Divas who I think will be switching brands come April 23.

TV DRAFT (MAIN EVENTERS AND UPPER MID CARDERS)

Cody Rhodes to RAW. The Intercontinental Champion has proved experts wrong when he, not Ted DiBiase, would end up being the breakout star of Legacy. Rhodes has become one of the top heels in the WWE since coming to SmackDown in the 2010 WWE Supplemental Draft after three years on RAW. With a possible big name heel going to SmackDown (more on that later), Rhodes’ days on the blue brand could be numbered.

Wade Barrett to RAW. Like Rhodes before him, the British Superstar has been on fire since winning season one of WWE NXT (which has since become the so-called third brand). And expect the Barrett Barrage to continue, this time on the red brand.

Kofi Kingston to SmackDown. The Ghanaian high-flyer seems to switch brands year after year and 2012 will be no exception.

Dolph Ziggler to SmackDown. Rhodes’ loss will be Ziggler’s gain as the former Spirit Squad member moves to Friday nights.

The Miz to SmackDown. The Awesome One has been getting buried somewhat due to recent backstage heat. But expect The Miz to rebound, this time on the blue brand.

Christian to RAW. Captain Charisma is recovering from an injury and once he’s 100 percent, look for him to make an impression on Friday nights.

Randy Orton to RAW. In the WWE’s eyes, Orton has been unable to replace 2012 WWE Hall of Famer Edge and with RAW‘s ratings declining as well as Irish Superstar Sheamus being groomed as the face of SmackDown, look for the Apex Predator to return to Monday nights.

Alberto Del Rio to SmackDown. The Mexican millionaire had a subpar year on the red brand despite winning the WWE Championship twice, but look for him to rejuvenate his career on Monday nights.

The 2012 WWE Supplemental Draft will take place on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 on wwe.com.
