RALEIGH, North Carolina – The WWE Universe experienced one wild ride as the 2011 WWE Draft unfolded before them like a runaway roller coaster. Emotions propelled viewers forward through a series of unexpected twists and jaw-dropping turns until, finally, they experienced a reversal of course that left many with a severe case of whiplash.

Team Raw def. Team SmackDown in a Six-Man Tag Match; John Cena drafted to Raw

The tectonic plates of WWE have shifted in seismic fashion. Freshly drafted Superstar Alberto Del Rio joined WWE Champion The Miz & CM Punk to form Team Raw. The three would go on to collide with Team SmackDown, comprised of Christian and SmackDown’s newest roster recruits Mark Henry & John Cena. The two squads would compete for the chance at one more draftee.

Dogged and determined, it would be the rebels in red who would triumph – thanks in large part to a mutinous Henry, who attacked his fellow boys in blue. The WWE Champion celebrated as he leveled one of his two Extreme Rules opponents, Cena, with a Skull Crushing Finale to capture the win for his squad. Good news for The Cleveland Screamer, right? Not so much.

Turns out Raw wanted back one of the most exciting Superstars in WWE history: The Cenation Commander-in-Chief.
