Mark you calendars. With SmackDown Live’s move to FOX less than a month away, it is time for WWE to make some last minute preparations for everything to go well. That means a lot of things need to be wrapped up, both in the short term as well as the long term. Some of these are going to be bigger than others, but we might know the details on what could be the biggest move of them all.
According to F4WOnline.com, there will be a two night WWE Draft taking place on Friday October 11 and Monday October 14 on the respective SmackDown Live and Monday Night Raw. WWE held its annual Superstar Shakeup in April of this year but various roster moves were allowed to take place under the Wild Card Rule, which was instituted in May. This rule has been slowly phased out, leaving the rosters nearly overlapping over the last few months.
There certainly is a big selection to pick from. Check out some of the biggest moves in the history of the Draft:
Opinion: I can understand why WWE is doing something like this, but at the same time it doesn’t make much difference if they are just going to undo the whole thing shortly thereafter like they did earlier this year. Why WWE insists on having only two nights a year where the roster can change is beyond me, as a trading period or just a few well timed roster moves could do a lot of good when they need some freshening up. It’s ok to be in the middle instead of at one extreme or another, which WWE has never quite gotten.
