Backstage Pecking Order Revealed, More WWE Draft News


source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

— Internally, WWE officials have a pecking order list regarding the top five stars in the company. In no particular order, Triple H, Undertaker and John Cena are regarded as the company’s three biggest stars. Batista and Shawn Michaels fall in the second tier level right behind them.

— Last week, the creative team had discussions on moving Chavo Guerrero’s bodyguard Bam Neely over to Raw, but the trigger obviously wasn’t pulled as he is still a member of the ECW roster following both drafts this week.

— They also talked about moving Kofi Kingston to Raw and Trevor Murdoch to SmackDown as early as last week, so their respective moves in today’s Supplemental Draft weren’t all that sudden.

— Creative actually made a decision last week to not move any Divas as there wasn’t really anyone that absolutely had to be moved, but of course those plans were later changed what with Layla heading to Raw and Maria joining SmackDown in today’s Supplemental Draft.
