2016 WWE Draft Results

It’s been fourteen years since WWE had their first draft and it’s been five years since the last one. This WWE Draft is coming at a certain time when there is so much great talent in WWE. I think NXT and the Cruiserweight Classic are a big part of the future and the structure of where WWE is going. Leading up to the draft the we learned that Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley would be running Raw and Shane McMahon would be running Smackdown.  The rules of the draft were laid out and those rules were. Raw got the first draft overall. Since Raw is three hours and Smackdown two, Raw got three picks for every two picks Smackdown got. It was also announced that tag teams would count as one pick and that six superstars would be drafted from NXT.  With all the suspense and drama in the air I along with many others wanted to know how the landscape of WWE was going to change. Here is how Monday Nights and Tuedays Nights.

Seth Rollins
Finn Balor
Roman Reigns
Brock Lesnar
The New Day

Besides Finn Balor and American Alpha I was really shocked at the NXT picks. Overall I do think Raw has the better roster but there is a lot of opportunities for stars to grow on Smackdown. I will be curious to see how next week goes with new rosters, new stories and new matchup’s.  Until Monday Night Raw next week to let all this sink in. Who do you like on each show? And where did your favorite star end up?
