There’s more to it than that. The WWE Draft is ongoing and that means things are getting a little more interesting throughout the company. SmackDown has already featured several moves and there will be even more next week on Monday Night Raw. There is a good chance that the latter show’s picks will get more attention, but now we know a little more about the first batch.

There are some new details about the first half of the WWE Draft. According to, the wrestlers who were moved to a new show were told in advance in an effort to prevent them from being taken by surprise. While some wrestlers are changing rosters, the changes do not go into effect until October 22. In addition, according to, Charlotte was moved to SmackDown because FOX requested that she be put on the show. There is no word on who else might have been or will be moved due to network requests.

It was a busy night. Check out how some of the Draft went:

Reigns, Big E, Flair and Belair selected in First Round of WWE Draft: SmackDown, Oct. 1, 2021

Hit Row are coming to SmackDown: SmackDown, Oct. 1, 2021

Jeff Hardy is heading to SmackDown and The Mysterios are going to Raw: SmackDown, Oct. 1, 2021

Opinion: There is something interesting about seeing how a show is put together and even more so in a case like this. The Draft is one of the most important events of the year and it seems that the company puts in some extra effort to make things work smoothly. That is how a show like this is supposed to go and it worked out well enough for the first half of such a special event.
