The Trump Trade

By June 30, 2009

Follow me on:

Last night we all found out that during his one-week in charge of RAW, Donald Trump made a 15-person trade with ECW and SmackDown. We found out during the show that Mark Henry, Jack Swagger, and Evan Bourne were traded from ECW to RAW. The WWE has just announced the other 12 people that have switched brands.

Darnit! Just when I was digging the reunion of the World’s Greatest Tag Team, even though they couldn’t seem to beat John Morrison.

Raw got the best deal. Big shocker. I am glad MArk Henry went the route he did. I’m a big fan of the silverback…I like how Swagger played his role also. he would be a good ally for Legacy.

I miss the tag teams. Come on WWE..you do this way to often! Every few years they seem to make them go away, then they bring them back and then etc etc

sorry, I rambled/ranted. I go now. Later Eric

What do you think Eric?

Hi Randy,

Overall I like the trade. Both RAW and SmackDown improved and ECW did what it was supposed to do. It is a glorified developmental territory and several young stars from that show moved to the bigger shows. Now the next generation of stars can be featured on ECW.

As far as the tag teams go, it is going to be interesting to see what happens with the titles now that Edge is injured.

Since you are a fan of tag teams, I am sure you will be excited to know that the WWE will be releasing a tag team DVD next Tuesday. Here is a link for that DVD set:
