• WWE Had Plans For Another Draft This Year

After SmackDown moved to FOX, WWE held a Draft in October last year. That wasn’t the only Draft WWE had planned for in a period of one year, as they had plans for another Draft this summer.

Fightful Select is reporting that WWE had a Draft scheduled to take place at the end of August this year. However, plans changed and it got moved to September, then October. WWE hasn’t decided a date for it yet.

It was also noted that the brand split won’t end. In addition, the format of the Draft is unknown, but it could be something small like a Superstar Shakeup including RAW, SmackDown and NXT, as it was rumored earlier this year.

It’s possible that WWE is waiting for the return of fans to their events to hold it or perhaps, they may have scrapped the plan entirely.
