The WWE Draft kicks off tomorrow night on Friday Night SmackDown and WWE is hoping for better-than-usual ratings since they are getting a ton of hype from FOX and they are bringing in some celebrities to make the draft seem like a big deal.
Most of the people in the company, including the wrestlers, have no idea who will be drafted and most of the roster will find out the draft results as the picks are announced on TV.
According to a report from WrestleVotes, there are two names that Paul Heyman is hoping to keep on Monday Night Raw. The report notes that Heyman has been fighting for Bray Wyatt and Aleister Black to land on Raw.
On the SmackDown side, the folks at FOX are big fans of Roman Reigns and Charlotte Flair. So, if they get their way then The Big Dog and The Queen will stay on the blue brand. As noted earlier, Reigns will take on Seth Rollins this week on Friday Night SmackDown. Reigns will represent SmackDown and Rollins will represent Raw. The winning brand will get the first picks in the draft.
FOX and USA represnetatives legitimately have a say in the draft picks so that explains why WWE was hyping on Raw that this would be a draft pitting FOX against USA.
