WWE is holding their next Draft and their network partners reportedly know some of the “key” Superstars that they will get. We should also expect many new NXT call-ups, possibly even an entire stable. That is exciting, but don’t count out Vince McMahon’s proclivity to change plans.

Vince McMahon and changing plans goes hand-in-hand at this point. He really does “march to the beat of his own drum,” and there’s nobody to stop him. There are also networks to consider and their relationship with Fox has been “strained” in recent memory.

During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez brought up an interesting story. Fox was told about some people they would get on SmackDown, but then Vince McMahon had another idea and did not follow through with that promise when draft day came around.

“Before the Fox debut, before they were getting ready to do the draft, they actually aired Fox commercials with certain Superstars, I believe Charlotte might have been one of them, I forget the others, but the point is that Fox was sure they were getting certain talents, because they were told by WWE that they were getting them. Then Vince changed the plan and they did the draft and then they didn’t give it to them. So, don’t think that just because they told Fox and USA ‘this is who you’re gonna get in the draft’ and they can’t change it, think again!”


We’ll have to see if WWE goes back on their word at this point. Vince McMahon will continue doing his own thing and there is no shortage of ideas that could change things. The roster will look very different this time next week and we will have all of the news, rumors, and updates right here at Ringside News.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
