Furthermore, WWE preliminary Draft Pools have also been determined and designate which WWE Superstars are available for selection on each night.
Last time a WWE Draft took place, the first pick for SmackDown was Dean Ambrose while the first pick for RAW was Seth Rollins.
We have seen some amazing draft picks taking place for several years which saw popular wrestlers like John Cena shift from one brand to another and become the marquee face for the particular show.
