Triple H has promised that this year’s draft will be a game-changer, but this concept of using separate draft pools for each night appears to be the same format from other recent WWE drafts.
The last time WWE conducted a draft, Brock Lesnar quickly broke the rules and said he’ll go wherever he pleases. Yet he finds himself back in a draft pool this year. He’s eligible to be selected next week on Raw. It looks like fellow part-timers Edge and Trish Stratus will also be assigned to a brand in this year’s draft.
Drew McIntyre is eligible to be drafted despite his recent absence from WWE. The same goes for injured star AJ Styles. Both wrestlers are eligible to be drafted on night one.
Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss are nowhere to be seen on the list of eligible wrestlers for either night of the draft.
The draft pools for both nights also include “Select NXT superstars,” which leaves the door open for multiple surprise call-ups to the main roster.
Finally, the draft of The Bloodline is split up across the two nights, with Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa eligible on night one, and The Usos eligible to be drafted on night two.
