Brace yourself as The New Era goes blue with the WWE Draft
Out with the old and in with the new. The New Era can truly begin because SmackDown Live is finally upon us. Is it the underdog brand coming out of the gate? Perhaps. In spite of that, do SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon and his ultra-determined General Manager Daniel Bryan have what it takes to lift SmackDown Live up to take its rightful place at the top of WWE? “Yes!”
But who exactly will be coming along for the ride? WWE Champion Dean Ambrose? WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte? John Cena? Seth Rollins? Young and hungry Superstars like Baron Corbin or Becky Lynch? Maybe a wild card plucked from NXT’s most prominent up-and-coming competitors? Or will Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and new Raw GM Mick Foley use their show’s extra draft picks to steal away the best talent from SmackDown?
For months, the WWE Universe has been clamoring with questions like this. Tonight, on the premiere of SmackDown Live, the WWE Draft promises to provide the answers in dramatic fashion.
