Quick thoughts… Well, the whole world knew Triple H was going to Raw, same with Rey Mysterio going to Smackdown. With Vickie Guererro as the GM of Raw (ugh), I’m not surprised that both Chavo and the Big Show went there as well, though I’m curious how they’re going to resolve Vickie/Edge with them now being on different shows. I’m not a fan of the storyline by any means, but I don’t want them to just have it vanish into thin air as if it never happened. Same thing with Matt Hardy being drafted, since he and Jeff are in the  midst of a storyline and I’d hate to see it just die off.

I’m not surprised that they broke up Miz and Morrison, but I am a little sad because I loved them together. Still, with them both out of ECW, it’d be interesting to see what they can do now and The Man loved Miz’s reaction, especially the kick to Morrison’s gut. I would have liked to see the Colons get split up as well (I really don’t like them), but what can you do?

The diva champions switching places doesn’t mean anything to me. I think Jericho going to Smackdown was a good move since he’s pretty much done all he can on Raw for now. With both titles on Raw, I assume CM Punk going to Smackdown means he’ll cash in Money in the Bank, win the title and bring it back to Smackdown. I’d be okay with that, I love CM Punk.

I was a little surprised that Layla was drafted away from William Regal, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen them together and she’s been doing some actual wrestling lately, so maybe she’s moving past ‘valet’, which would be great. I was very sad about Hornswaggle being drafted away from Finlay–as The Man pointed out, he’s the only reason I like Finlay. I love Hornswoggle. Of course, I don’t want ECW (it’s airs Friday at Midnight here in Canada) and I do watch Raw, so at least now I’ll get to see him and that’s a plus!

Not a lot of huge surprises, but a few moves that I’m interested in seeing where they lead, particularly the Miz/Morrison split.
