The pool for the WWE Draft has officially been revealed and there a few notable takeaways.
The WWE Draft is set to make its return later today on the October 9th edition of SmackDown. The two-night event is set to completely reshape the landscape of the WWE — a highlight for fans craving change at the moment.
Despite some pretty compelling storylines on both shows, quite a few programs have gone on far too long. There’s only so many times we could see the Street Profits fight Angel Garza and Andrade before we decide to turn the channel.
WWE needed a shakeup. They needed to reconfigure both rosters to allow for fresh feuds and renewed momentum for a variety of superstars. And there’s no better way to do that than through the always-exciting WWE Draft.
Just one day before the event was set to kick off, WWE released the rules for the draft including the pool of eligible superstars. They decided to do things a little differently this year with a separate pool for each night — one pool for Friday and one for Monday on Raw.
On the surface, this just seems like a running list of the current WWE roster. However, a closer look might provide some insight into how the company views certain superstars and what their future plans might be.
With that, let’s take a look at three takeaways from the WWE Draft pool reveal just before the first night of the event.
