30. Sheamus to SmackDown
It’s hard to name a Superstar who rose through the ranks as quickly as former WWE Champion Sheamus. The current reigning United States Champion and 2010 King of the Ring will certainly change the entire SmackDown landscape. Whoever crosses his path better be prepared for a fight.
29. Beth Phoenix to Raw
As one of the most dominating Divas in history, Beth Phoenix wasted no time carving out a name for herself ever since her debut in 2006. The former Women's Champion made a major statement when she became the second Diva in history to compete in the traditional Royal Rumble in 2010. The Raw Diva locker room has been put on notice. The Glamazon is coming back to where she began in 2006.
28. Alex Riley to SmackDown
In perhaps the most stunning move of the WWE Draft, Alex Riley is leaving the side of WWE Champion The Miz and heading to Friday nights. How might this move affect Miz’s Triple Threat Match at Extreme Rules? And, will Riley continue on as Miz’s Vice President of Corporate Communications? Regardless of what the future holds, The Miz has certainly brought the young Superstar along for one awesome ride.
27. Tyler Reks to Raw
He’s big, strong and has his own distinctive look. What Tyler Reks needs now is the right moment to break through in WWE. Will he find it under the glaring lights of the Raw stage?
26. Tamina to SmackDown
Carrying on the high-flying legacy of her father, WWE Hall of Famer "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka, Tamina has a penchant for climbing the turnbuckle and punishing her opponents with the type of dazzling aerial offense her dad made famous. Who or what will she set her sights on in 2011?
25. Tyson Kidd to SmackDown
If you've been watching the current season of WWE Tough Enough, you’ve received a glimpse of the training and dedication it takes to become a WWE Superstar. Having trained in the legendary Hart Family Dungeon, Tyson Kidd received the skills he needed to become a Unified Tag Team Champion and a WWE Tag Team Champion. Certainly if anyone is poised for singles success, it is Kidd.
24. Ted DiBiase to SmackDown
It is harder to find a Superstar with a richer past. Not only is Ted DiBiase the son of WWE Hall of Famer "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, but he is the grandson of "Iron" Mike DiBiase. Expectations are high for this young man. His list of accomplishments already includes winning the World Tag Team Championship and starring in The Marine 2. Is 2011 the year DiBiase finally claims a singles championship?
23. Kofi Kingston to Raw
After losing the Intercontinental Championship in early 2011, Kofi Kingston is one of the hungriest Superstars in all of WWE. Kingston knows how it feels to be a champion, and more importantly, what it takes to get there. It’s most likely not a matter of if, but when, Kingston rises again on Raw.
22. Jey Uso to SmackDown

Coming from a long line of Samoan Superstars, which includes WWE Hall of Famers The Wild Samoans, his father Rikishi and even multi-time WWE Champion The Rock, Jimmy Uso and his twin brother Jey have wreaked havoc during their short time in WWE.
