During the last episode of Friday Night Smackdown, WWE aired the first evening dedicated to the 2021 Draft, with several great characters who have been moved from the red Monday night show, Monday Night Raw, to that of Friday night and the other way around.
One of the biggest names to have been moved from the WWE flag show, from Monday to that of FOX, on Friday, was that of Charlotte Flair, the current champion of the red show who will instead land on the blue brand’s rings, going alongside the other main roster world champion: Becky Lynch.
Although the changes will only become definitive from October 22, everything could still change, but one thing seems to be certain in that of the Stamford company: Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair will be on two separate rosters.
New details on Becky Lynch
Becky Lynch has announced she is the first draft pick of Day Two of WWE Draft 2021. The Man revealed she is returning to RAW. Lynch opened this week’s episode of the red brand and declared herself as the first pick for day two of the Draft.
The Man was then interrupted by the RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, who was drafted to SmackDown last week. According to what was hypothesized in a very effective and witty analysis by Dave Meltzer, in one of the latest Newsletters released on the usual Wrestling Observer, WWE will most likely move The Man to Raw, right in the second evening of the Draft.
According to the well-known journalist, in fact: “If Charlotte Flair was drafted then Becky Lynch will probably go to Raw now because they want to keep the two separate. You know there are still three weeks to go before it takes effect and that people can lose their titles, but that shouldn’t happen now, I don’t know if you remember, but NXT’s Swerve Scott is North American champion too.”
According to the Observer journalist, the main problem of the WWE would not be so much that of having two holders of a world title in the same roster, but that of having two very great female stars in the same brand. Although it is possible to remedy the thing of the titles by losing one of the two, the McMahon company still wants to keep Becky and Charlotte separate, so as to keep the female star power of both rosters high, as the USA and FOX networks have also requested.
At WrestleMania 35, Becky Lynch defeated Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair in the main event of the show to win both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships. While she quickly dropped the blue brand’s title, The Man had an incredible run with the RAW Women’s Championship.
