With the announcement of the WWE Draft making a return, many speculations and rumours have been flying around in the wrestling world. Surprise returns, major debuts on the main roster from NXT and new general managers are some of the major rumours.

On their official website, WWE posted some rules for the draft, which will take place tonight on the live SmackDown.

The rules are:

  • 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

The list of current WWE Superstars eligible for the WWE Draft will be as follows:

  1. Thanks for the update! I didn’t even know that Big Show was still wrestling, what happened to him?

    In your next post, will you share your opinion about the WWE SmackDown vs WWE Raw saga?

    1. Hi Reotshepile! 🙂

      I am not exactly sure as to why Show was off television for such a long time but a lot of websites say that it was because of rehabbing from hip surgery, so it’s probably that.

      I will get my opinion to you by tomorrow evening?
