WWE recently concluded the first part of its Draft, which will see the Red brand RAW and Blue brand SmackDown (which recently moved to FOX), pick their own set of independent superstars. The two Networks went head to head in the race to sign some of the top talents in the company, who would be exclusive to their own shows.
Though most of the draft was a really professional one, there was a funny moment that did take place. While the rules suggested that a tag-team would be a single pick, RAW picked Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross as two separate picks, rather than one.
This caught the attention of the fans and they pointed out that the two might be going their separate ways. Not just the fans, other superstars and former stars reacted too.
One such individual who had his say on Social Media was NXT Superstar Mansoor Al-Shehail. He took to Twitter and called out the USA Network for the move. He joked that the FOX Sports robot, Cleatus, gave them an advantage over their rival brand.
He wrote, “No one told the room of USA executives tag teams could be drafted together? This is what happens when you don’t have a robot.”
Well, with the company now looking forward to their next Crown Jewel event, it is only correct that their winner of the 50-man Battle Royal is now more active. He won the match last year in his hometown and was given a major push. He will be hoping to make a major impact this time as well.
On the other hand, there has been some speculation about the WWE splitting up Cross and Bliss. Despite these rumours, Cross indicated on Twitter that they are going to be still staying together. Even Bliss did the same in her post-show interview, clearing the air for the fans and the speculators.
Nikki took to Twitter and shared a video of Bliss’ interview. She put up a caption as well, where she wrote, “She is truly the best!!! So happy we are staying together!”
Well, this could mean that the company might have changed their mind on the subject. It seemed that the two would be going on to different shows, but now they will be sticking to the Red Brand. It’s not something that is new, as previously such changes have also been made.
Remembering the time when Triple H ended up on SmackDown for a week, before making the switch back to Monday Night Raw. It is what the company does at times and this is surely “best for business”, with both brands having stars that are going to be exclusive to them. They will continue with the Draft on Monday, as other superstars are allocated brands.
Below are some of the other key picks from the first part of the WWE draft-Roman Reigns to SmackDown
