Every WWE 2023 Draft Pick From SmackDown’s Night 1

We got the list.

The time for the WWE Draft has once again come around and it seems that WWE are once again trying to establish two very separate, unique brands in RAW and SmackDown Live. Last night’s episode of SmackDown saw the first round of 2023 draft picks, establishing who are the top-tier talent in WWE currently and who are likely going to be the headlining flag-bearers for the two shows going forward.

Most of the picks were fairly predictable, aside from a few NXT Women’s division stars that were thrown in as a curveball. The big takeaways from the first round is that The Bloodline seem to be splitting with Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa being drafted to SmackDown in the first round and the Usos mysteriously not being included. Current RAW Women’s champion, Bianca Belair, has been poached by the blue brand, suggesting that we’ll see SmackDown champ, Rhea Ripley, sent to Monday nights in exchange. Smackdown’s Intercontinental champion, Gunther, and his cohort of European talent have also been drafted to RAW, while the United States champion is yet to be considered.

So here you have it, the full list of first round draft picks from last night’s episode of SmackDown Live.
