Behold the pecking order. The 2020 WWE Draft has come and gone and we are now moving into the new normal between the two rosters. The lineups for both shows have been reset, meaning that there are several new rivalries to be had and new stories to tell. Both rosters are fairly stacked, but there have to be some people above the others. Now we know who WWE seems to think is on top of both shows.
One of the best things about the Draft is allowing WWE to have a new direction. While the two World Champions remained in place, almost everyone underneath them was changed. You had several names who moved around and now it is time to see who is going to go where on both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. Someone is going to have a head start though and those names may have been revealed.
WWE has set its new banners on WWE.com for both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. The wrestlers in these banners are seen as the top wrestlers on the show, though they can change frequently. The Monday Night Raw banner features Drew McIntyre, Charlotte, Randy Orton, The Fiend, Asuka and Alexa Bliss. SmackDown features Roman Reigns, the Street Profits, Seth Rollins, Bayley, Otis and Sasha Banks. These banners do change every few weeks, meaning there is no word on how long these people will be seen as the top stars on their shows.
That could be quite the lineup. Check out some of the bigger names in action:
Opinion: This isn’t the biggest surprise in the world but I’m not sure how long term this is going to be. These banners and WWE’s opinions on people can come and go in the blink of an eye but it makes sense that we could be seeing some of the top picks from the Draft near the top of the rosters. They were top names for a reason and if they are stars, WWE wants its fans to know they are there.
Which roster is looking better? Who will be each show’s breakout star? Let us know in the comments below.
