The 2023 WWE Draft continued on last night’s edition of Monday Night RAW, capping off what has been a pretty prolific draft compared to recent years attempts. It seems that WWE are serious about rebranding their two flagship shows, providing two unique rosters with star-studded line-ups.
The biggest takeaways from last night’s main-show picks are that both brands will continue to have their own Women’s and mid-card champions, with Rhea Ripley being the first pick for RAW and Austin Theory coming to SmackDown as part of the first round’s picks too. The Undisputed Tag champs however have been assigned to the red brand, suggesting that they will either split the two championships once more or allow them to appear on both shows, albeit ruining the whole point of this draft.
A few more stars of NXT found a place on the main roster via the Draft lottery, with the likes of Pretty Deadly, Cameron Grimes and the team of Kayden Carter and Katana Chance finding homes on RAW and SmackDown respectively. Later on, as part of the supplemental draft, the NXT draftees continued in the form of Grayson Waller (SmackDown) Odyssey Jones (RAW) and Indus Sher (RAW), leaving the black and gold brand with quite a sparse roster.
