    There was not a lot of movement this time out. Certain picks were obviously for storyline purposes.
    The weird thing is that they hinted that they were gonna shift KO into a feud with the Fiend and end his feud with black...then sent the Fiend to RAW and both Black and KO to Smackdown

    Smackdown Women's Division is really small as of this moment. Must be some NXT call ups going there.

    I did not see that Battle Royal winner coming. Is this what leads to Eva Marie or Melina?

    Smackdown got KO and Black. RAW probably got the better end of it, but not by much.

    Also, generally speaking Smackdown is the better platform for building new stars. So having up and comers over established big name guys in some ways is a better fit.

    Random people who didn't get drafted:

    Andrade, Billie Kay, Erik, Mickie James, Tamina, Zelina Vega
    Kayfabe wise, no one bothered to draft Andrade?

    Mickie and Zelina were just in the RAW title picture and they drop to undrafted!

    additonal draft

    Raw:
    Lana
    Riddick Moss
    Arturo Ruas
    erik

    SmackDown:
    Natalya
    The Riott Squad
    tamina
    billy kay
    zelina vega

    surprised to see that brazilian capoeira guy, arturo got drafted to raw. guess he must have impressed the management on raw underground.



    so after all that , only andrade and micky james left as free agents. the smackdown women's division was certainly boosted by the late draft picks.

    Looking at who has landed where on the draft, can't help but think that Smackdown is going to get destroyed in this years Survivor Series.

    Sami would probably lose to Lashley. Bayley would probably lose to Asuka. New Day would probably beat the street profits (though that one could easily go the other way). The only toss up would be Roman and Drew. With Braun, Keith Lee and the Fiend on RAW, the RAW mens survivor series comes off bigger and tougher (assuming either make it on the team). And with Nia and Bayzler on RAW, the womans survivor series team seems bigger and tougher (again assuming that either make it on the team).

    But we'll see. Adding NXT makes it a bit more interesting. If NXT is added to make all the matches triple threats, I can easily see Sami or Bayley stealing wins.

    A dude that legitimately goes by the name of T-BAR got drafted before Black.

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

    Retribution makes no sense.

    The absurdity is not a problem unto itself. But, it fails because it is pitched as a serious gimmick.

    "Smackdown" is bigger money than "Raw"? I will take your word on that.

    Bigger contract. All that means is that FOX is paying WWE more than USA is right now.
    Watching television is not an activity.

    I can buy Fox paying more than USA.

    Though wwe clearly still books RAW as the flagship.

    Bayley would probably lose to Asuka.
    Asuka has never quote gotten revenge on Bayley yet. (One reason I think they both retain). Although an Asuka-Sasha-Io Triple Threat would be amazing.

    I am watching WWE for the first time in like ten years. I liked seeing Jeff Hardy even though he lost. New Day seems like a fun group.


    I am trying to get back into wreslting after a large break. I watched a bit of AEW when it started but kind of dropped off. But I will be watching some of the older episodes of that thanks to on demand.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    I recommend tracking down some New Day highlights on youtube, group managed to stay together six years which for tag teams in today's era is pretty insane, the stuff leading up to Kofi's title run is especially good.

    Do they have wrestling matching on your tube that I can watch and see some of the stuff I missed.

    And what is the deal with New Day? They have rainbows and a unicorn and such in their intro video. Are they Gay or LTBG friendly?
