Next week's 3 hour Raw was rumored to feature the draft, but instead it seems to have been changed to the return of King of the Ring, a one night 8-man tournament.  Not sure why they made that move.

I always liked "The King Of The Ring". I don't think it ever worked as well as they planned (good way to elevate a mid-card guy) but still I like the tourney concept.

As far as tourneys in wrestling I hate when you can tell by looking at the matchups and see "who would be next" and by figuring "good guy vs bad guy" you can tell who will win which match. Hope that made sense.

Or the fact that there's rarely ever a true upset win, that goes anywhere, at least.

Disappointed.  Draft is much more fun.

WM IV is the very embodiment of that statement.  I was 12 and had the whole thing figured out after 2 matches.  They usually shake it up a little more in recent years.

In 2005 they did the draft in the summer, so maybe the WWE just plans to do it later this year.

Last year's draft was also held in the summer, with dire consequences.
