The WWE Draft was held between this Friday and the episode of Raw that took place in the night, an event that changed the internal dynamics in the main rosters of Raw and Smackdown. There have been major upheavals such as the move of Drew McIntyre to SmackDown or those of Finn Balor and Seth Rollins to Raw and even the women’s roster has had a total upheaval between the two rosters.
At the end of all this, a further Draft was staged in Raw Talk where, although of lesser importance, other characters were drafted. Raw went respectively to Dana Brooke, Dolph Ziggler, Bobby Roode, Jaxson Ryker, Veer, Liv Morgan, Mia Yim, Tamina, Tegan Nox, Shelton Benjamin, Cedric Alexander, The Miz.
Shotzi Blackheart, Natalya, Jinder Mahal and Shanky were drafted in SmackDown.
Wrestlers not named during the WWE Draft
Following two nights of insane shuffling, the WWE Draft is over for yet another year. RAW and SmackDown look wildly different, but there are still a few Superstars who did not move to either brand.
One of the notable absences in this Draft was undoubtedly former WWE champion Bayley. The wrestler was not chosen for Raw or SmackDown and on social networks she posted a cryptic tweet to clarify her situation. WWE recently announced a serious injury in training and Bayley will be out of the ring for about nine months, a very heavy tile for both the company and the wrestler herself, a woman who has always made a difference on the women’s roster.
Due to this serious injury, the wrestler was forced to miss her titled match against Bianca Belair, a match that was to be held in the Pay Per View of Money in the Bank. Here is Bayley’s tweet: Not only Bayley as among the Free Agents there is also The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar.
The wrestler, who will face Roman Reigns in the next Pay Per View in Saudi Arabia at Crown Jewel, had clarified his situation during the last episode of Smackdown, but many were expecting a sensational overturn and a possible passage to Raw.
Instead, Vince McMahon’s company preferred to continue with this stalemate and Brock Lesnar remains one of the most illustrious Free Agents in WWE. Paul Heyman vigorously attempted to figure out where he was going and supposedly played a role in making him a free agent.
Well, at least according to The Beast Incarnate. Lesnar thanked Heyman for making him a free agent, which caused some tension between him and The Bloodline.
