Just two days away from the WWE draft, the company website published a list of rules for said draft to clear up exactly how things are going to be done:
The rules for the WWE Draft are as follows:
RAW has the first overall pick
Since SmackDown Live is a two-hour show and Raw is three hours, for every two picks SmackDown Live receives, Raw will receive three picks
Tag Teams count as one pick unless a Commissioner/General Manager specifically only wants one member of the team
Six draft picks will be made off the NXT roster
So they’ve addressed the fact that one show is longer than the other and therefore requires more talent while also leaving the door open to splitting up tag teams while also making clear NXT will, in fact, be raided for talent.
You ready for this?
