Rules and talent pools revealed for this year’s WWE Draft

The 2020 WWE Draft kicks off this Friday night on SmackDown and will continue on Monday’s episode of Raw.

Ryan Satin of FOX Sports has obtained the rules as well as talent pools for the draft. Stephanie McMahon will announce draft picks for Raw and SmackDown.

It was stated that executives at FOX and USA Network have been working with WWE officials over the last few weeks about their preferences for draft picks.

The rules for the draft are listed below:

-More than 60 Male Superstars, Female Superstars, and Tag Teams have been placed into The 2020 WWE Draft

-Since Friday Night SmackDown is a two-hour show and Monday Night Raw is a three-hour show, for every two picks SmackDown has, Raw will get three picks

-Tag Teams still count as one pick unless FOX or USA Network (in conjunction with WWE Officials) wants to pick one Superstar from the team

-Any undrafted Superstars will immediately be declared free agents and be able to “sign” with the brand of their choosing
