The timing of the Draft Lottery 'in about a month' does make sense seeing as WWE wanted to get through Backlash first and then really shape up the rosters.
The top guys rumored to move are Shawn Michaels to Smackdown and Kurt Angle to RAW. If HBK were to switch, they could turn him heel to feud with John Cena which would only elevate him further. As far as Angle is concerned, he'd do a feud with Batista after his program with Triple H ends. Just to note, last year none of the guys (excluding Triple H) were told of who would be switching brands ahead of time. If HBK and Angle are the top switches, they would likely be notified ahead of time due to their tenure in the company.
Although one of the rumored suggestions for the Draft Lottery called for Shawn Michaels to jump to SmackDown! and begin a feud with John Cena - as a heel - there's talk he's against such a plan. While HBK could very well end up on SmackDown, he has told those close to him that he's not at all in favor of a heel turn and wants to continue his babyface character.
Marty Jannetty is now set to begin with WWE in May. No word was available on plans for his on-air return.
I had figured that Angle & HBK would end up on the same show so they could have a rematch, but now I'm thinking this amy not be so bad. Angle vs HHH would be great, as we haven't seen that in quite a long time, and the proposed Batista/Angle stuff would help to put Batista over.
HBK to Smackdown as a heel? I don't know...sounds interesting, because it's different. HBK/Cena would be great, and sort of parallels the Angle/Batista proposition in the sense that it's established talent against the young up & coming "future of the company." Whether or not this switch and/or turn goes through will impact where Jannetty ends up for sure.
And still after last night, Christians insults towards John Cena sounded great & I'm now hoping that he does in fact get switched & get to face Cena in a main event/world title situation - that'd be great.
