Halfway there. With so many wrestlers on the WWE roster, it can be difficult to find something for all of them to do. One of the most effective ways to fix things is to shake things up a bit, which WWE has done multiple times over the years. There are few ways to do this all at once, but we are in the middle of one of WWE’s most significant ways of changing things around.

The first night of the WWE Draft was held this week on SmackDown, with sixteen wrestlers being drafted in four rounds of four wrestlers each. There were two wrestlers drafted from NXT, with SmackDown and Monday Night Raw both drafting one each. After the show, another eleven wrestlers were drafted, with announcements being made on Twitter. Here are the full results in order of their selecting:

1. Bianca Belair
2. Carmelo Hayes (From NXT)
3. Randy Orton
4. Nia Jax
5. LA Knight
6. Bloodline
7. AJ Styles
8. Andrade
9. OC (Luke Gallows/Karl Anderson/Michin)
10. Ashante Thee Adonis/Cedric Alexander
11. Baron Corbin

Monday Night Raw
1. Jey Uso
2. Seth Rollins
3. Bron Breakker
4. Liv Morgan

6. Sheamus
7. Alpha Academy
8. Kiana James (From NXT)
9. Ivar
10. Isla Dawn/Alba Fyre
11. Zoey Stark
12. Shayna Baszler

That’s a big night. Check out some of the moments from the Draft:

Opinion: There were a lot of picks but only a few changes really seemed to make an impact. The biggest are probably Hayes and Breakker, though that isn’t exactly enough to make it a game changer. Maybe things will pick up even more on Monday, but for now, the first night of the Draft does not seem to be the biggest deal, with a lot of people just staying where they were before.

What do you think of the picks? Who do you want to go where on Monday? Let us know in the comments below.
