2. Some interesting tag teams decisions were made for the WWE Draft

The WWE Draft is known for many things and one of those is splitting up tag teams. Who could forget the sight of the Dudley Boyz being drafted to separate brands in the first-ever WWE Draft?

The initial draft pool for the 2020 iteration of the WWE Draft perhaps lends a few hints as to how the company sees some of its talent.

For starters, the recently-formed team of Natalya and Lana are listed as individuals as opposed to as a team. Could their short-lived alliance already be coming to end?

The same is true for the even more short-lived team of Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke. The two wrestled one match together against the previously-mentioned duo and even came out sporting matching Trish Stratus-inspired gear.

But it seems as though that may have been a one-off as both are listed as individuals for the draft. However, seeing as though the women’s tag team division needs more teams, it wouldn’t be the worst idea to keep them together for the time being.

Erik of the Viking Raiders will also be flying solo for quite a while as his partner, Ivar, was left off the draft pool after suffering a serious cervical injury that will likely keep him out of action for months.

The same goes for Jey Uso who was listed as a singles competitor, sans his twin brother. Jimmy Uso is currently out with a knee injury and likely won’t return until next year, but don’t expect that to keep him off TV.

That said, a few notable teams were kept together as Dolph Ziggler has been listed with the returning Robert Roode as a tag team. The same is true for The Miz and John Morrison who remain embroiled in a feud with Heavy Machinery at the moment.

Will any more tag teams split up during the draft? We’ll have to wait and see.
