This week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown was night one of this year’s edition of the WWE Draft and it featured RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair getting drafted to the blue brand. It also included Hit Row being called up to the main roster as well.
As Ringside News exclusively reported, WWE had the draft “all set,” and the networks were told about which rosters they will get. That didn’t help those Superstars.
It seems the company decided to change things up a bit for this year’s edition of the WWE Draft from the looks of it. In previous iterations, only the top stars in the company would be informed of them changing brands.
According to a report by PWInsider, the WWE Superstars who were going to be drafted to different brands were informed about the same shortly before the official announcement.
It was said that this was done in order to prevent WWE Superstars from being caught off guard due to the brand switches. It remains to be seen who else will be drafted during night two of the WWE Draft on Monday Night RAW next week.
It’s nothing new for WWE to keep that kind of secret to themselves. They historically withhold information, especially concerning the WWE Draft. We can only expect the same treatment on RAW for night two of the 2021 WWE Draft.
