And so, it finally ends. The original WWE Draft ran about two hours with ten picks each for Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. That felt like a big deal because there were so many names moving around that it was interesting to see where everyone was going and what it meant for the future of both shows. Now it is seventeen years later and things have changed a bit, to the point where the event spans over two nights and five total hours. Now that the big nights are over, we know the results.

With Monday Night Raw and SmackDown having aired their nights of the 2019 Draft, the main WWE roster can now be broken into three groups: Monday Night Raw wrestlers, SmackDown wrestlers and Free Agents, the latter of whom can sign anywhere at any time. This week’s Monday Night Raw followed the same format as SmackDown: three Monday Night Raw picks for every two SmackDown picks over six rounds. There is also a chance of additional signings as well as trades. Here are the Monday Night Raw picks and the final rosters after the two nights:

Or maybe you would prefer something a little more visual. Check out a recap of the second night:

Opinion: As is always the case with something like this, it is going to be interesting to see how things go with the picks once they are on the shows together. What we got for the last two nights are more of a previous special than anything else and that doesn’t offer any kind of a realistic view of what we will be seeing. Both of the roster have some strengths and weaknesses but what matters more than anything is how well the positives can be amplified and how well the negatives can be hidden. Hopefully it works out well, because they seem to be stuck with these lineups for the time being.
