As noted earlier, the WWE Draft begins tonight on Friday Night SmackDown on FOX.
WWE is hyping the draft as USA vs. FOX with network executives having a direct influence on draft picks. Most of the wrestlers are in the dark on who is switching brands, which means they will find out tonight and Monday night just like everyone watching at home.
Also scheduled for tonight:
Seth Rollins will take on Roman Reigns. Rollins will represent Raw and Reigns will represent SmackDown with the winning brand getting the first draft pick. Raw will get 3 picks for every 2 picks made by SmackDown since Raw has an extra hour.
Also on tonight’s show, Bayley will challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in a rematch from Hell in a Cell.
The stage is ready for tonight’s Draft edition of Friday Night SmackDown. Check out the stage setup below:
