After Evan Bourne, Jack Swagger and Mark Henry appeared on Raw as part of the 15 man trade between all three brands brokered by Donald Trump before he sold Raw back to Vince McMahon, WWE.com went ahead and revealed the full details of the trade, and which wrestlers were headed to which brand.
Interesting to see ECW was almost entirely turned over, and Shelton Benjamin heading to ECW is notable as well.
Here is the list:
Moving to the Raw roster:
Moving to the SmackDown roster:
The Hart Dynasty – David Hart Smith, Tyson Kidd & Natalya
Moving to the ECW roster:
Brie & Nikki Bella
The major WWE trade – orchestrated by Donald Trump when he owned Raw, seemingly with ECW interim GM Tiffany and currently on-probation Smackdown GM Teddy Long – saw a total of 15 wrestlers switching brands (5 to Raw, 5 to SD and 5 to ECW), and you can find details on every roster move of 2009 at Pulse Wrestling’s exclusive WWE Transaction History page.
