WWE Draft returns Oct. 1 on SmackDown, Oct. 4 on Raw

WWE is breaking out as much big news as possible for Monday Night Raw this week, even while the show is on the air. That includes revealing the WWE Draft is coming back in just a few short weeks:

The timing is just about right, with Extreme Rules taking place on Sept. 26 just five days before. That gives WWE the chance to use Monday Night Raw that week to wrap up whatever storylines they need to in preparation for changing the roster around.

That could also have something to do with Big E showing up on the red brand this week with the intention of cashing in the Money in the Bank contract on either Bobby Lashley or Randy Orton. That hasn’t happened as of this writing, and the wording of his announcement was such that they don’t actually have to go through with it, but it’s definitely time for a change at the top.

The changes are coming soon no matter what.
