WWE Friday Night SmackDown results: live coverage of the WWE Draft



We are live with ongoing coverage of the WWE Draft that kicks off tonight on Friday Night SmackDown.

WWE announced the draft rules earlier today and they are the same as most years. Half of the eligible names on the roster will be drafted tonight and the other half on Monday night during Raw. Undrafted names will be free agents and can sign with either brand. Names from NXT will also be eligible to get drafted to the main roster.

As of 7:30 pm eastern, the only match announced for tonight is Sasha Banks vs. Bianca Belair. WWE has also announced that Edge will return tonight after he was taken out in an ambulance after taking a curb stomp from Seth Rollins.

We will update this page with WWE Draft results throughout the show.

The show started with the announcement of the first round WWE Draft picks and then Roman Reigns went out to the ring for a promo.

Brock Lesnar appeared, he circled the ring and then he went in to hit Reigns with a pair of suplexes. Reigns took off but left The Usos in the ring to get destroyed by Lesnar.

Happy Corbin defeated Kevin Owens with help from Madcap Moss (Riddick Moss).

More WWE Draft picks announced.

During a commercial break, it was announced that Goldberg will be on Raw this Monday.
