WWE: Post-Draft and Post-Mortem

WWE has its Vengeance pay-per-view this Sunday, featuring all title matches. For the latest line-up click here. What will be the fate of the ECW Championship? Who will Santino, Melina, Cade & Murdoch and Deuce & Domino put their titles on the line against? Will five-time former ECW World Heavyweight Champion The Sandman be added to the “all former world champs vs. John Cena” match? We should find out in a matter of hours…

…in the meantime, Dave Meltzer at WrestlingObserver.com is reporting that, with the early ratings from Smackdown not being great, “it’s already being talked about that if the shows this week don’t show ratings improvement, that the angle will be rushed into finishing.” I guess that means if you have a Nielsen box and aren’t happy with the “Mr. McMahon is presumed dead” angle, you shouldn’t watch tonight. OR you SHOULD watch. Or something.

Did you hear WWE held a draft? Of course you did. But which brand and which wrestler made out the best (and which were royally screwed)? Vote and discuss this very topic right now in our wrestling forum!
