A Raw trade, analysis and some random thoughts on the show

Who made the team will come later this week.

On Raw, Batista of all people announced a trade of 15 wrestlers. Guess they had to one up the NBA. Details:
Moving to the Raw roster:
Gail Kim – Smackdown womens division was cluttered.
Alicia Fox – lets McCool be on her own  but can you see Fox doing any damage?
Jack Swagger – how much do you want to make a bet he will win the US title now?
Evan Bourne – lets hope they don’t bury him. I would love to see him and Kofi
Mark Henry – so this is Raw’s idea of bringing in talent?

Moving to the SmackDown roster:
Matt Hardy – he is injured, if he comes back before his brother leaves then he will benefit, if not it is pretty likely he will be buried
Finlay – Another heel for Smackdown. They just turned Punk, my guess is they reverse the Punk turn, or have something else planned. Remember Matt is a heel too. Smackdown now has all the top heels
The Hart Dynasty – David Hart Smith, Tyson Kidd & Natalya : Time for the big time boys. Natalya will be a future champ.

Moving to the ECW roster:
Shelton Benjamin – If you have been following this blog then you know that I have pointed out how they fucked him up so bad. Well atleast they noticed are are fixing it. Shelton will win the ECW title before the next draft.
Goldust – I liked him and Hornswoggle. O well, I hope he gets a legit singles run. He is the perfect guy to put over new talent anyway.
William Regal
Brie & Nikki Bella

Trade Analysis: 
Losers of this trade:
ECW: They lose Swagger/Harts/Finlay/Bourne/ in one swoop. That is their whole show. Now its the time of Kozlov and Dreamer.
Hornswoggle: him and Goldust kicked ass, I thought they had potential
Charlie Haas: there goes his tag team partner
Christian: The second I heard this trade was made, I thought that he was going to be moved. He has already dominated ECW and it was time to move on. Now he has to wait a year. Bullshit, that will just hurt his career.

Winners: 
Kozlov and every ECW undercarder who hasn’t been seeing time. With the loss of that much talent who have been featured, they will atleast get a chance.
Tommy Dreamer: Of the people in the match at the Bash, only he and Christian remain. Where is his competition?
The Miz: With Smackdown getting all the heels, it is him, Orton, and the Big Show carrying the heels in the main events.
Mike Knox: he has been off tv for a while, maybe he will be paired with Charlie Haas. He has nothing to lose
Chavo: Losing Regal and Hardy makes him relevant in the Heels division.
Smackdown: Matt Hardy/Finlay/and the Harts. They just got more of my favorite wrestlers. This is the show to watch. All they gave up was Shelton and some excess Divas.

Random Raw Thoughts:
So is Mark Henry a good guy now? He was cheering Batista when he came out.
That tourney for title is bullshit. Was there any doubt that Cena and HHH were going to advance?
I thought Mickie James was already established as the number one contender. So to make it official she squashes Beth Phoenix and Kelly? That is bullshit.
I loved decision to put the tag titles on Edge and Jericho. Putting them on 2 huge draws was a great idea.

  1. Looks like they mixed some things up a bit. I wouldn’t mind seeing Koslov and some others on tv more.
