Backstage Draft News: Mr. Kennedy & Chris Benoit Trades

The decision to move Mr. Kennedy to Raw was made because Triple H was “crying” that there weren’t enough heels on the brand. This move indicates that not only is Kennedy not returning as a major babyface to chase Edge for the World Title he was supposed to have won from Undertaker with his Money in the Bank shot, but he’s also returning to Raw to be a heel, likely to be fed to Triple H. All of this is subject to change, but some people are probably going to be very upset in the next few months.

The decision to move Chris Benoit to ECW was a bit odd because on Raw they had just hyped up a Benoit vs. Lashley feud for the ECW Title, and now that was suddenly all out the window. However, one source is saying that in the end, probably by mid-fall, Benoit is probably going to end up on Raw after all, so they can restart the feud at that point perhaps leading up to WrestleMania.
