The annual WWE Draft has concluded and fans now know what the future of Raw and SmackDown look like. There were plenty of shocking moments and some big names on the move, including Raw women’s champion Charlotte Flair and SmackDown women’s champion Becky Lynch both changing brands.

Interestingly, WWE destroyed the women’s tag team division through the draft. Current champions Nikki A.S.H. and Rhea Ripley are the only existing team that was not split up. Tamina and Natalya were split, as were Tegan Nox and Shotzi Blackheart. This all comes on the heels of Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler breaking up after Baszler turned on Jax.

Among the biggest names making brand changes are Edge, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch, who are all moving to Raw. SmackDown’s top headline-grabbing names include Drew McIntyre, New Day members Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods, Sheamus and Charlotte Flair.

The changes made during the draft will not go into effect until Oct. 22, the day after the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event in Saudi Arabia.

Now all that’s left is to break down the WWE Draft selections and new rosters.
