The WWE Draft will not be a network special … the company just announced it’s going down on July 19th — the first live episode of SmackDown.
According to WWE.com, “A WWE Draft will be conducted by respective General Managers to select which Superstars will compete exclusively on Monday Night Raw or SmackDown.”
The report also says, “For the first time in history on back-to-back nights, these two distinctive brands … will compete with each other for television ratings, live events and pay-per-views.”
It’s unclear at this time who will be serving as the General Manger of each show but Stephanie McMahon and Shane McMahon have both thrown their hats in the ring.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
