WWE is holding their draft and a lot of things are going down. The company also made several picks on Saturday morning during Talking Smack, but the company really didn’t le anyone in on that information.

In case you need a refresher, it was announced on Talking Smack that RAW is getting Nia Jax, John Morrison, Reggie, R-Truth, Drake Maverick, T-BAR, Akira Tozawa, Otis, Chad Gable, Apollo Crews, Commander Azeez, Doudrop, and Zelina Vega. On the other hand SmackDown is getting Drew Gulak, Mace, Mansoor, Mustafa Ali, Toni Storm, and Aliyah. This also serves as Aliyah’s main roster call-up after around six to seven years in NXT.

Many WWE Superstars were chosen for RAW or SmackDown during the supplemental draft on Talking Smack. According to PW Insider, those Superstars had not idea where they would be going until they saw it on social media.

We have heard from several who claimed they learned after the moves hit social media. 


It’s really nothing new for WWE to play their draft choices close to the vest. Ringside News exclusively reported on October 1st that the picks were all set and their network partners were notified about the changes.

We will continue monitoring this ongoing situation as more information is made known. The WWE Draft is usually a time full of unexpected moments and plenty of surprises. It turns out that some of the most surprised people could be those Superstars actually having their names called.
