WWE releases Draft Pools for upcoming SmackDown & Raw

Tomorrow night kicks off the next WWE Draft. From here on out, with both Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown on two different networks, we’ll be re-entering a full-on brand split.

However, in order to keep the two-show event interesting, the company has opted to divide the roster into two separate Draft Pools, with one set being available during SmackDown and the other eligible during Raw.

Stars in tomorrow’s pool include a strong majority of fan-favorite stars like Becky Lynch and “The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt. However, aside from Lynch, The Revival, and AJ Styles, most of the champions are only available on Monday night.

    What was even more ridiculous is Corey Graves ( I think it was) said that if someone picks only one member of a tag team, the other members then become free agents and can go anywhere they want. So basically if RAW had only picked AJ Styles, why would Anderson & Gallows choose to go anywhere but RAW, keeping the team together anyway?

    Could you imagine one of the shows picking Kofi for instance, and Big E and Xavier both choose to go to the other show.

    Might as well just pick the whole team.

    This draft rule also makes no sense! You can take the whole team or just choose one guy (but either way counts as 1 pick)?

    You’d have to be an idiot to not just take the whole team and then break em up later…

    A couple of interesting names on this list. Tozawa, Carrillo & Gullack (which would explain why he lost the belt this week).
    Also, no Usos. Either Meltzers rumours about them coming back soon were wrong, or they will be a surprise tonight or Monday.
    No Matt Hardy, Alicia Fox, The Asscension or Naomi either.

    They have done it in the past, but I agree, whenever they split tag teams it is ridiculous.
    Does kinda make the comments from the commentary teams these past few shows look a little redundant though seeing as they were saying tag teams could be split up

  • Michael Justin Arnold

    Looks like they’re drafting teams & stables as a unit? Something that actually makes sense for once…
