As with any sport, the draft nights for WWE have been tense for the talent involved. For every superstar and team, it’s the night when their future is decided and can mean good or bad things for their careers.
As a result, picks and moves haven’t always been received favorably. Whether a superstar doesn’t approve of their selection or they don’t like the circumstances surrounding it, picks have often led wrestlers to lose their cool. Here are five of the best examples of that.
Bobby Lashley may be the current TNA World Heavyweight Champion, but before that, he had a run in the WWE. That included a United States title reign and a pair of ECW Championships, the second of which came just before the 2007 WWE Draft.
At that draft, Lashley was drafted to Raw from ECW, which means he had to give up his title belt. That didn’t sit well with the athletic fighter, and it led to a feud with John Cena that culminated in a WWE Championship match.
