It’s time to shake things up a bit. The WWE has a lot of talented wrestlers up and down its rosters but every now and then something needs to be changed. You can only have the same people face each other so many times before it stops working, which is a problem that WWE has started running into. There is a way to fix that though and it is going to be used soon.
Just over a year ago, WWE split up their rosters again, setting up Monday Night Raw and SmackDown with their own unique group of wrestlers. That is the kind of thing that can change the way the company works for a long time to come and it can be a mixture of positives and negatives. Sometimes you need to change things up again and that will be the case again in October.
During Sunday’s Clash Of Champions, WWE announced the return of the WWE Draft, which will take place on the October SmackDown and the October 12 Monday Night Raw. All wrestlers will be eligible to be moved to other shows, as was the case last year. There was no mention of NXT, though WWE has used the Draft or Superstar Shakeup to move call wrestlers up before.
The Draft has been a big deal before. Check out how some of its big moments and the official announcement:
Opinion: This is something that has been needed for a long time now as there are only so many ways you can present the same group of people so many times before they start running out of ways to showcase the wrestlers. That is the case for WWE these days and now we need something fresh for the sake of giving people something new to do. I’m not sure how well ti will work, but at least they have the chance to do something new.
What do you expect from the Draft? Who needs to move the most? Let us know in the comments below.
