There were rumors, and then there were reports, and now we’ve got official confirmation from WWE.
There will be yet another draft this year.
Indeed, the company itself announced the draft will begin on SmackDown Live on Oct. 11 and continue on through Monday Night Raw on Oct. 14. There’s also this little tidbit thrown in there:
On both nights of the Draft, Superstars from Raw and SmackDown will appear along with personalities from FOX and NBCUniversal programming to announce select picks that will determine the rosters of each distinct brand.
Both networks will be breaking out some star power to help promote their respective brands.
It’s worth noting that will be the first episode of SmackDown Live following Hell in a Cell, so the timing lines up well to finish up some storylines before any big moves are made.
