The brand extension is to change up the locker rooms of the CCW. In 2006 brand extension, it was called the draft and also was called the draft lottery. On June 21, 2006, Jerry Seltzer revamped the shows, Titans is Salvation on Sunday nights while Main Event is Retribution on Wednesday nights, now Thursday nights, starting the next night on June 22nd and first live edition of the CCW Retribution!. The entire CCW roster would be split into two separate brands, each with their own exclusive show and champions. Proponents of the brand extension claimed that this would allow mid-card talents more opportunity to move up the card, while critics claim that the roster split would lock most wrestlers to one show, which may be the one they do not watch regularly and it was set up like a normal sports draft, in that each brand would take turns selecting one wrestler from the CCW roster at a time (with exceptions made for tag teams and multiple-member factions). The Salvation brand was represented by General Manager Chae Baggio while Retribution was represented by the General Manager, Nelson Mandrell. The CCW World Heavyweight Championship, CCW X-Division Heavyweight Championship, and CCW World Tag Team heavyweight Championship titles will be represented on Sunday Night Salvation brand. On November 26, 2007 edition of Salvation, CCW announced that the 2007 Draft was held on December 30, 2007 with new feature called Trades. On April 16, 2008, CCW Officials announced the 3rd Annual Draft Lottery with a twist. The 2008 Draft will be hosted on June 11, 2008 with a supplemental draft to be held on June 14, 2008. Also in the 2008 draft, the American Wrestling Alliance and the Global Wrestling Alliance will be added to the draft. The Salvation brand will have the 1st pick, then Retribution brand, followed by American Wrestling Alliance, and finally Global Wrestling Alliance will have the last pick. 85 wrestlers will be selected in the draft. Trades will be used in the 2008's draft, but, anything can happen in the draft.
