Update on draft, the Heart Throbs & Steve Austin on Punk’d

Early word indicates that the WWE lottery draft will take place after the Judgment Day PPV, which takes place on 5/22. WWE does have the ECW PPV in June, but there is no branded PPV until June 26th, which gives them plenty of time to implement changes and set up future storylines.

The reason The Heart Throbs changed their name from The Heartbreakers is because WWE felt it was too similar to Shawn Michaels’ “Heartbreak Kid” gimmick.

Next week’s episode of Punk’d will feature Steve Austin.
