WWE Draft - The Televised Portion

The WWE is holding their annual draft. The televised portion is always shown on Monday Night Raw. The results of the televised portion of the draft are as follows:

Raw:
United States Champion MVP from SmackDown!
Big Show from SmackDown!
Matt Hardy from SmackDown!
WWE Champion Triple H from SmackDown!
The Miz from ECW
Divas Champion Maryse from SmackDown!

SmackDown!:
Women's Champion Melina from Raw
CM Punk from Raw
Kane from Raw
"Y2J" Chris Jericho from Raw
Intercontinental Champion Rey Mysterio from Raw

ECW:
Vladamir Kozlov from SmackDown!

I will post the supplemental draft results later. But I have a few things on my mind about the televised portion of the draft.

Why was The Miz drafted over John Morrison? Sure I am not a big fan of either, but Morrison is more talented than The Miz. The Miz is going to burried on Raw and forgotten about. Even though that is a good thing in my opinion, The Miz was better off on ECW where he would have got some TV time.

I guess Valadmir Kozlov going to ECW is proof that he is getting depushed. I mean I did read a number of weeks ago that the WWE is souring on Kozlov. This just seems like further proof to back it up. I myself feel as though Kozlov is overrated and ECW is good place to groom Kozlov for something bigger if there is something bigger for him.

Chris Jericho going back to SmackDown! is not that big of a shock. He did after start on Smackdown! when the brand split started. It will be interesting to see who have Jericho feud against. Maybe a bit of a program with Undertaker. There are a few possible programs Jericho could do.

The one thing that should have happened is Christian should have been drafted to either Raw or SmackDown!. He is going to waste on ECW. But Vince McMahon doesn't see Christian as a main eventer which is unfortunate because Christian is talented beyond belief.

Will Matt Hardy get his big break on Raw? Hardy should get a push towards the WWE Championship as he more talented than Jeff. Jeff Hardy only got a push because of how over he is and not based on talent. Matt deserves a chance to run with the WWE Championship I mean he has been on the cusp of something big for months and months, but gets injured around the start of his big pushes. Matt Hardy has been healthy for a while now and just ready.

Overall there is not much else that is worth talking about. Stay tuned for my thoughts on the WWE.com supplemental portion of the draft.
