Even More Draft News: London/Kendrick, Finlay/Horny, & More

Here is some more on Shelton – Benjamin's move to SmackDown in the Supplemental Draft was said to be a bit of a surprise because head writer Michael Hayes has never been high on the former Minnesota Golden Gopher. In creative meetings, Hayes would talk about Benjamin being lazy and that he's never been able to "seize the moment" in his promos or during his countless start-and-stop pushes. Anyway, there is talk of engaging Benjamin in a feud with Jeff Hardy. We'll see as anything can change. SPOILER: They actually did Matt Hardy vs. Shelton last night at the tapings even though Matt is on the ECW brand.


The break up of Paul London and Brian Kendrick was seen by many as a bad move. Right now Paul London is considered to be in the "not to be pushed" category. Kendrick was already working dark matches at the tapings last night.

Fit Finlay was moved to the ECW brand to be the player/coach role that was set last year for Chris Benoit. After his death no one took over the role, which the company felt needed to be filled. Hornswoggle was moved to ECW as to not break up the act.
