The 2020 WWE Draft is scheduled to commence on the October 9, 2020 SmackDown episode and culminate on the October 12, 2020 Raw episode.

Will Seth Rollins leave Raw? Will Bayley leave SmackDown? These are questions that need answers. The WWE has officially announced the 2020 WWE Draft will begin on the October 9, 2020, SmackDown episode and culminate on the October 12, 2020, Raw episode.

The following will meticulously predict how Raw and SmackDown will look once the draft occurs, including considerations of NXT call ups.

These predictions will survey and analyze how the tag team divisions, women’s divisions, and men’s divisions will look on both main roster brands.

Without further ado, here are the 2020 WWE Draft predictions.

SmackDown Tag Teams/Factions WWE Draft landing spots

1.) Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura (c)

2.) Street Profits

3.) Imperium

4.) Viking Raiders

5.) Apollo Crews and Ricochet

6.) Forgotten Sons

The WWE needs to rebuild its SmackDown Tag Team Division. Quite frankly, the WWE should be unifying the tag team divisions because each division is infinitesimal to the point that every match is repetitive. In case unifying the tag team divisions is not in the company’s plans, these six tag teams should keep the division sufficiently fresh until WrestleMania season, at the very least.

Assuming Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura remain tag team champions, they would be able to continue their rivalry with the Street Profits and hopefully get a win back in a SmackDown Tag Team Championship match. If Street Profits lose the Raw Tag Team Championships, they would need a fresh start, and targeting the SmackDown Tag Team Titles would be the way to go.

Like the Street Profits, Viking Raiders won the NXT and Raw Tag Team Championships so targeting the SmackDown Tag Team Titles would be great for them. Since Imperium lost the NXT Tag Team Championships to Breezango, they have been directionless. Getting called up to SmackDown would be a fresh start for them as well.

Apollo Crews and Ricochet became a tandem after having a common enemy in Cedric Alexander, who turned his back on them. They have now been directionless after losing to Hurt Business for four months straight. They should put an end to their feud with Hurt Business and be kept away from them post-draft. Going to SmackDown as a tag team would give them a fresh start.

There’s definitely another tag team in the mix, but that team is easily forgettable.
